One morning while I was clearing the dining room table of the previous evening's canning jars and silver bands, I said jokingly, "This week on Canning: The Next Generation, Joanna vows to never eat another bean again." We watch a lot of Star Trek in my house, particularly due to my wish to complete my list of 30 things to do before I turn 30, and watching every episode of every Star Trek series and all of the movies is on the list. We are currently on Season 7 of Star Trek: The Next Generation, and I had probably just finished watching an episode or had just woken from a dream I was on a mission in deep space when I made that off-hand comment.
But it stuck in my head, especially as I've been thinking that this blog really isn't the place to talk about sweet corn and pickle brine. So I've decided to separate the posts, and leave this one to baking and books, and the other to our adventures in canning and preserving. You can find it at http://nextgencanning.blogspot.com. I'll update both blogs at the pace that we accomplish canning/baking/food projects, which is sometimes a full schedule and other times less often than I hope. (Oh full time work, you are so overrated.)
So head over to Canning: The Next Generation for more green beans than you can imagine and vegetables aplenty.
