Saturday grandson Hank came over and helped Grandma decorate the Christmas tree. He found in the bottom of the ornament box a container of tinsel that had been in there for 20 years. Oh my Hank had never seen tinsel. This beautiful shiny silver stringy stuff that went on the tree. He insisted we had to have tinsel on our tree. Lots of it too! What the heck you are only grandmaw for a short while and they grow up so fast. Hank says we have the most beautiful tree EVER! Prettier than even batman's.....
Grandmaw will be picking tinsel out of everything for months : )
While Hank and I decorated O Wise One packaged the frozen turkey we butchered last week.
Lots of ground turkey, cutlets and loin
Legs for smoking too!
And O Wise One even canned the broth for me. The reason I wanted to show this is because many times I tell you when explaining canning techniques to finger tighten your jars only. If you crank down your jar lids too tight before you put them in the pressure canner then the lids will bend or kink on you.
Now O Wise One belongs to the "Get A Bigger Hammer Club". In other words his answer to everything is tighten the heck out of it or just get a bigger hammer or wrench if that is what is necessary. So needless to say I have several jars of broth that have dented lids. They did seal anyway but I will put them in front and use them first. So be warned FINGER TIGHTEN ONLY!!
