And if that wasn't enough the smell of roasted tomatoes with olive oil, garlic powder and basil and Italian herbs is wonderful ! This is a first for me but my oldest daughter LOVES sun dried tomatoes so I am giving these a try. I am not sure how I will use them but I will just have to experiment. Life is about always learning. When you quit learning you die : )
This holiday weekend is turning out to be a very busy one with a welcome home party last night for a friend's son who just returned from the military.
Tonight my oldest daughter Fred and family are having a fish fry that we were invited to. I am busy now preparing potluck dishes to contribute.
Then tomorrow afternoon we are making our annual trek to the balloon derby to watch the balloons land at dusk. It is just beautiful.
And we are mixing in studying because Baby O has her first test on one of her gifted classes on Tuesday.
And on top of that the cucumbers, tomatoes, squash, zucchini and okra are stacking up. I may never see daylight again in the canning department. So don't be surprised if I taper off a bit on the blogging for a few days.
Love to hear what everyone else is canning right now!
Hope your holiday weekend is wonderful and safe.
