Lately, we have cooking up a storm making Applesauce Muffins, Apple Butter, and Hamburger Vegetable Soup. My house smells amazing and needless to say with the cold front I haven't ventured outside much the last few days.
I still have a laundry basket full of apples on my side porch and about 4 pumpkins to process. I really have become super housewife. But when you have more time than money you get creative and it can really be fun. Except Applesauce muffins don't last more than a few days around here (:
I have gotten into canning more this year. Tomatoes grew with a vengeance this summer and I had at least 6 bushels between our plants and some from Brian's parents. I canned about 28 quarts of tomato sauce, 5 quarts of tomato juice, and about 20 pints of diced tomatoes.
And than there are the green beans, 50 pints later we are fully stocked. We borrowed my mother-in-law's pressure cooker and now my Grandma Payne is going to let me keep hers at my house. The next couple things I am going to try pressure canning are chicken and beef/venison stew.
I almost forgot ,with all those tomatoes there were still a bunch that never ripened before the first frost. And this is how we discovered Green Tomato Curry Sauce on Rice, the kids and and I really love it with just some cheese and coconut on top. We are now out of it and I am so sad.
