Thursday's Kitchen Cupboard - 8-9-12
A day late and a dollar short... busy, busy, busy -- just like everyone else right now. I'm trying to get as much done as possible this week because I'm heading back to work temporarily and part-time on Monday. It's just a couple months for 2-3 days a week, but it will keep me hopping here at home. Thanks to The Gardener of Eden for hosting Thursday's Kitchen Cupboard. I love reading what folks and doing and it gives me ideas too. Yup, I'm busy with tomatoes too and canned some salsa to use up the tomatoes, peppers, and onions. I canned 8 pints of salsa, 5 quarts/2 pints of tomatoes. I dried a lovely quart of tomatoes last week AND dried a quart of celery. We also froze about 6 1-pound bags of sweet corn. It all turned out beautiful and I'm thrilled with the results. I'm about to can peach tomatoes which are just lovely and I'm anxious to see how they look in a jar.
