It’s the most wonderful time… of the year!
Mwahaha. My want/wish list? Is enormous. Like 16″x22″ enormous. I asked the 7yo to get me a big piece of paper, thinking landscape. Nope, he brought me one of his huge art sheets. Hey, it works.
I canned apple cider, water, and mustard. Not all in the same jar, but yeah. Got colors?
Hubby’s a doll and pressing the last of our apples to get them the hell gone and done.
I didn’t have an entire cannerful of cider, so I did something I came across in another blog (don’t ask me where though). She fills up her canner (pressure or water) with jars of water to round it out and to help it come up to boiling quicker. When she’s done, voila! Potable drinking water, sealed up so nothing can easily get into it! I don’t think it’ll be the mainstay of my water storage, but pretty darn groovy you have to admit.
The mustard… it’s just repackaged from the giant tub at Costco. It’s cheap, and this way I have my smaller containers since we don’t go through a ton of it. Add a squeeze bottle for the fridge, and we’re set. It works. Although, I have to say, whoever designed that stupid giant plastic French’s Mustard bottle that’s at Costco? Needs to be flogged. You know how many darned nooks and crannies are in that sucker? Not cool French’s, not cool.
More craziness later this week.
