I saw this and it's so funny, and true! Grocery Stores Wars
Food Preservation and Storage Class- I'm really excited that I'll be taking Susan Astyk's online class! I became familiar with her when I read about her Independence Days idea. She also has a book here about that- Independence-Days She also has a few other interesting looking books for sale too that she wrote. I was happy to receive a scholarship too, as cash has been tight. Nothing like having a really sick dog when your cash is already low.
I hope to learn lots of tips and tricks and get new ideas on what I can grow, buy and preserve. Here's my current pantry in our spare bedroom. Needs some tidying, and reorganizing, but great for storing all kinds of things- food, emergency supplies, canning equipment, etc.
Here's my "fast pie" I made using the last of my frozen home-grown organic nectarines- took 5 minutes to put the store bought crust in the bottom of my new (used) blue Pyrex pie plate, add fruit, a tiny bit of sugar, flour, cinnamon, and lemon juice. Toss, put on top crust, trim and in. Easy pie and delish!
My new pillows I made- I used the forms from my ratty old winter pillows, and the fabric from my daughter's old comforter cover, and my sewing machine I got last summer. I had tried to convert her double cover to queen, but it wasn't cooperating!
My new/used, ironed doilie, now it really shows the complicated pattern. Someone spent a lot of time on these-
New/old doilies up on the shelf, I didn't realize the pattern difference until I ironed them-
More winter weather headed here this weekend, with some snow, I hope!
Sorry if I accidentally deleted your recent "comments". I thought I was cleaning out my "spam" box, oops!!! I also deleted the "word verification" box! Ugh, the new version is horrendous, and I have good vision! If I get spammed I'll turn it back on... Thanks...
