We've had some really busy days lately ~
Sunday we drove home from GA and had a lovely time, listening to good teaching and just being together. Before we left Atlanta, we made a stop by Restaurant Depot and loaded up on good things to can for our pantry provisions.
Monday, I cut up and canned 18 quarts of chicken & 3 quarts of chicken stock. Those jars of chicken will be a great start to our chicken enchilada meals & greatly cut down on the time needed in the kitchen to fix dinners.
Tuesday, Amy peeled 25 pounds of carrots & I started cutting up and canning them. I've got 14 quarts and 7 pints canned. I didn't get it all done yesterday, so I finished up today. We loved the carrots with our roast or just as a side vegetable with a meal. In the afternoon, we were able to go up to the church and help sort items for the annual garage sale benefitting out Haiti mission team. I found Greg a couple of shirts, me a shirt, Amy a few things & some baby stuff for my grandsons! Plus its fun to help and fellowship in the process.
Today, we are helping a friend pack up her shop in preparation of moving. It will be a mutually beneficial agreement since she needs help and we can work for items in her store! Bartering is a good thing! No money exchanging hands!
