OK, so while I was slaving in the kitchen
(I talked Nate into doing the daily
harvest in our garden,
which we both hate to do,
you end up with the pollen from
the garden all over your clothes)
Nate and Chase have been dying to
see the 2 hour last episode of
Avatar: The Last Air Bender.
So while they are in the living room,
I managed to get alot done,
while destroying the kitchen. Nate found some great tomatoes,
zuchinni and squash in the garden...
I turned them into...

Fresh zuchinni sauteed in butter
with fresh minced garlic and
pepper and then froze them
with my favorite food storage tool,
the Food Saver.
A few years ago I wanted one of
these for my birthday after
we gave one to my dad for his birthday.
Nate got the whole set up
for me but hated giving it
to me for my Bday
(I like practical gifts and Nate doesn't).

Then I blanched,
peeled and canned a bunch of
fresh tomatoes from the garden,
so we can have fresh canned tomatoes all year.
It has been about 4 years since I purchased
stewed tomatoes from a store.
Our garden always yields
enough for the entire year.

Whew, I think that's enough for today.
I still need to clean up the kitchen and finish
the rag quilt that I started the other day.
Happy Saturday...

Wow, you go girl! I'm proud of you for all the canning and making your harvest last all year long.
