Plum Jam

Case and I were chatting a couple weeks back about Mom's homemade Plum Jam... Plums were in season so I thought I would give it a shot...

....and boy did it come out yummy! It is a really simple freezer jam recipe.

2 Cups Pureed Fresh Plums
4 Cups Sugar
1 Pkg Pectin
3/4 Cup Water
  1. Mix plums with sugar, and let stand for 10 minutes. Meanwhile, stir the pectin into the water in a small saucepan. Bring to a boil over medium-high heat, and boil for 1 minute. Stir the boiling water into the plums. Allow to stand for 3 minutes before pouring into jars or other storage containers.
  2. Place tops on the containers, and leave for 24 hours. Place into freezer, and store frozen until ready to use.
It was that easy!

Give it a try, I know you will like it!


my neighbors!

Not only do I have a super cool house, and live in a super cool neighborhood, but I also have super cool neighbors!

We had an awesome block party last week...

Here are some pictures of the madness we all call FUN!

I can't wait til the next one!



I know, I know... So many... OK ALL of my blog posts lately have had to do with Nebraska Football...It just seems to be taking over my whole life lately!

However there is some other pretty exciting things going on too!

A couple of weeks ago I accepted a position on the Board for the Nashville Chapter of the American Marketing Association (NAMA), I am now the Collegiate Relations co-chair. I have been approached before about being on the board, but it was never the right time, or the right position.

Then a couple weeks ago, I was approached again, they had me in mind to co-chair the Collegiate Relations committee. It hit me, this was not something I could pass up. I was very honored to be asked, and new that it was the right move to make, or step to take. ;)

There are times that I feel in over my head but, I know that this is something I can do and I just need to take it one step at a time. Plus people have faith in me and believe that I can do this. Which feels awesome!

Wish me luck!


Nashville Huskers - Nebraska @ Kansas State - Nashville, TN

May I tell you how much I love hanging out with Cornhusker Fans! The Nashville Husker fans are so great, truly wonderful people and we always have a good time.

I was so impressed with our turn out for a Thursday night game that was on ESPN. We had about 70 show up! Way to go HUSKERS!

I don't know about the rest of you, but I was really worried about this game, I thought it was going to be a tough one. But I was VERY happy with the outcome! GO BIG RED! This is going to be a really fun season.

This week we have TEXAS...EEK! It is also Red Out Around the World week! So make sure you show up at the Frayed Knot in RED!!!

OK so here are the details for this weekend!

Kickoff is at 2:30 pm get there early to get a good seat. Michigan is playing at the same time so we are going to have to split the bar with them. We get the big screen and sound, we can sit in the main dining room and in the billiards room (there will be more TVs in there and it will be cleared out).

T-SHIRTS will also be on sale! Bring you $10 and place your order!

Nashville Huskers - South Dakota State @ Nebraska

Ok, ok, so I took a couple of days off... Things have been crazy at work, and well in life in general. I am kind of glad that it is a bye week this week. And just an FYI we will be at the Frayed Knot on Thursday for the Big 12 opener against Kansas State! See you there!!!

We had yet another solid turn out for the SDSU game. The total count came to 95, which is still larger than any event we had last year. And wow did we play poorly! But it was still great to spend some time with the Greatest Fans in Nashville!


The Lone SDSU Fan in the bar...

We are accepting of all fans! Even Ohio State...well maybe just this year ;)

As if I need to be reminded about how short I am...

That's right Erin, cover up that UK nonsense!

I am so proud to be a Nebraska Fan. You would not believe how many times I get stopped, honked at, waved at, I've even been given big thumbs up on I-65, from other Nebraska Fans here in Nashville. People are always shocked when I tell them how many people show up each week, and frankly I am always a little surprised too!

So keep passing the word around our group. Get all of your Nebraska peeps to get to a game. It really is a little slice of Lincoln at 204 21st Ave S, Nashville, TN!

Go Big Red!
