I've been a bit busy on the home front within the past week or so. Which means I've not been online as much as usual...which you may or may not have noticed. ;o) Anyways, here's a glimpse of some of the activities that have been making me happy...
Canning salsa! I was thrilled to find everything I needed for salsa, at one of the local farmer's markets in the city. I hadn't planned on making salsa, I was there to buy some veggie staples to lay up for the winter months ahead. However,when we finished off the last jar of homemade salsa last week, there was considerable moaning from my menfolk over it. Apparently, store bought salsa doesn't measure up. Did I mention that it's taken us three years to consume all the salsa I canned back in 2007? (I kinda went overboard in my salsa making that year. Pounds of hot peppers were used in my quest to produce a "make your eyes water , nose run, lose your voice" kind of salsa... the way my hubby likes it. Dozens of pint jars were filled with salsa that year and honestly, as much as we like salsa, you really can't eat it three times a day... although I think my youngest son would be up for that challenge. LOL)
book. I spent so much time cooking, I didn't find time to take pictures of all that I made, so you'll just have to trust me on this, okay? I mean, honestly, with the amount of food two hollow legged teenagers and one grown man eat, it's a wonder I have time to do anything besides cook. ;o) Whew. So, today, my stockpot has taken a break from cooking soups or chili and has been put into action in another way. I've loaded it with some of my retro linens in an attempt to whiten them a bit. Prepping them for a project I have in mind.
plaid shirts in my stash. It's amazing how much fabric is in them.
who this quilt is for. LOL My oldest son knows that any plaid project on my work table is destined for him. The two other males in this household don't share his affinity for plaid. At. All.
