It's been a long few weeks! Lyns and Lexie made it back to Houston on Saturday night. It was great to have them here. We are excited that they'll come back again in November for Cameron's farewell.
I've been canning up a storm....still! Everyday I wake up and think...."hmm what can I can today". It's great having a kitchen downstairs that I can make a mess in and then walk away. But then it's bad too...cause I have two kitchens that I can make a mess in!
Today I made 14 quarts of apple pie filling, I've never done that before. It's so pretty in the jars. I did 18 quarts of spaghetti sauce. Added to the spaghetti sauce I did a few weeks ago, I may have enough for the winter. I also did 11 pints of peach syrup. I got some peaches from mom that were the size of apricots. I did peel one box of them and then decided that was enough of that. I just juiced the other box. I also did some zucchini relish, hadn't done that before either. On Saturday I did more meatballs and hamburger. So anyway, the shelves are looking good and I think I'm getting stocked up with some pretty tasty food. Tara is coming this weekend and we're going to can some salsa for her and maybe some Indian Relish. Matt said he really liked that, I had no clue.
The weather today was beautiful. 84 degrees for the end of September is fabulous. I think I would like to keep that up until the 15th of November. Anyone else agree with that?
