Saturday August 4, 2012

The weather forecast called for rain. I think we have gotten about 10 drops so far. The small town we live near has mud puddles. We are so jealous as we don't live 2 miles from the city limits. They say there is a cold front moving through. I tell you what we are about to sweat to death in this cold front. 

Spent the day canning tomatoes and potatoes yesterday. Another 8 quarts tomato sauce and 14 quarts new potatoes added to the pantry. I have a large roaster of tomatoes cooking down for more sauce today and I just put my first 18 pints of slices carrots in the canner with another 18 to go in. I guess this is as good of a way to spend a Saturday as any!

Have a great weekend..

    I'm hoping for rain for you. We got some a few days ago and I am grateful for every drop.

  2. however do you peel your potatoes so perfectly round and smooth... simply beautiful...!!

    1. My oldest daughter bought me this fancy peeler for christmas one year : )

    2. that fancy peeler sure does make them look nice... hopefully it is quick and easy too... thanks for the response...

  3. Hot here, too, but we did have a thunderstorm. When they said no rain. Go figure.
    Hope you all have a blessed Sunday!
