Dana is so proud of me. 
Can't you see the love and adoration in her eyes?
She is saying, "My Mom can CAN!!!"
Thanks, Dana, honey, I love you too.

Here they are, the canned Cornish game hens nestled in garlic with a touch of carrots.  Once again, 6 out of 7 jars turned out.  The other one had a bigger hen, and it was too full, I think.  We'll just eat it and see how it tastes.  I am on my way now you guys!   

I love it when I think of an idea, prepare for it, do it, and then actually succeed.  It is even better if it involves creativity (which cooking always does) and it doesn't turn out to be very difficult after all.  That sums up my canning experience so far.  Yay for Kathy Matthews!

What a cute pooch!

I've never thought of canning anything but fruit or vegetables before. What made you think of cornish hens?

Well, I was thinking about what it would be like to can leftovers. Like spaghetti, meatloaf, soups, etc. So I did some stew, and then when I saw these cornish game hens I thought, hey those will fit! The canning book told me exactly how to do it.
