I am blessed beyond measure.
One of these blessings is that I am alive and healthy.
My own personal conviction is to try the best I can, with what I have (and whom!), to keep myself (& us) that way.
Which, for our family, means healthy eating, among other things.
My dear friend Holly posted a recipe for salsa a while back. I have always wanted to try canning. Loving the natural/healthiness of the process, yet a tad unsure if I was actually capable of doing it.
Yesterday, I overcame that fear and, started chopping a gigantic pot of fresh, healthy, wholesome, YUMMY! goodness.
**okay, so when I said healthy, I meant healthy PLUS a bit of diet coke.**
okay, minus the paste and 2TBSP of sugar..shh..don't tell!!
had my cookbook on the counter!
mmm..yummy...starting to boil.
I knew that IF I was to try canning, I HAD TO figure a way to keep the kitchen clean. Which, for me, means doing the dishes AS I go. As well as putting away 'extra' ingredients while I cook. I simply can not leave it all to the end. I'm weird that way.
First round of dishes.
"A picture of me mama, pease !"
After a few tries the cans end up in my NEW (thanks dad!) pot. With a little help from Mike.
