Instead of going on my morning walk, I celebrated by making my great grandmother's fruit dumplings, which are really more like a noodle dough covering a piece of pitted fruit (pit-removed, of course). If you have an abundance of peaches, necterines, apricots, or plums (what I made this morning), you should check out these Bohemian fruit dumplings. I shared the step-by-step recipe here.
Abundant Mama sent her congrats and issues this advice:
"Keep at it, though, because after a month you will be a new woman."
Day 7 - Yeah, this one didn't happen!
