Pretty productive? You be the judge...

This week I have been pretty productive. I canned 18 pints of applesauce, 7 quarts of peaches, 5 half-pints of peach jam, AND 2 half-pints of Chocolate-Rasberry jam. Plus before the canning spree, I mopped the kitchen floor and cleaned my kitchen! The only thing I did not get done was a chance to write. Maybe I'll do some free-writing today and see how it turns out.

I've also commented on a few more blogs and found some more of you to follow. YEAH!

I totally nailed a Squash Soup recipe and made it for my family. I also made Taco Soup which turned out to be a hit also.

I made Zucchini brownies yesterday with frosting. (I hardly ever make frosting.)

I also finished my book review for the book I just read. (The review will coming out November 16th.

Halloween Costumes? My 7 year old wants to be a ballerina and my 10 year old? She doesn't want to dress up. (Maybe I can change her mind.) You guys have any ideas for her costume? I have NO idea what my 2 year old should be either. Ugh! Any ideas for her??

My 100th post is coming up. Yes I believe technically I am probably already past it but I am considering what to do.(I LOVE celebrating!) I am thinking of sending a few of my favorite things out to a lucky reader of my blog. (My favorite things are chocolate,body spray, lotion, AND magazines....I am a magazine junkie.) What do you guys think?

I think that wraps up my week. How was your week?

Pretty impressive! I hope to get some applesauce done in the near future, but I'm not crossing my fingers.... BTW, care to share the raspberry chocolate jam recipe? Sounds Yummy!

Don said...

You do your applesauce in pints? That's like single-serving size around here. I like to use the big half-gallon jars from Macey's.

Not that we've done any canning or bottling lately. Our big thing has been baking.

Hooray for productivity!

Wow. All I did was laze around and be sick. You're soup, sauce and writing all look very impressive.

Ann said...

Wow! You have been busy! The soup looks yummy! I tried a yeast roll recipe this week and it didn't turn out like we back to the drawing board.

Happy SITS saturday's nice to meet you!

Brandi said...

All that cooking is so impressive! I've never tried canning things before but it's something I've always wanted to do.

Happy SITS Saturday Sharefest!

Wow! I've always wanted to can something. That is so impressive. And she doesn't want to dress-up? Hmmm... Maybe she'll change her mind when it gets closer to Halloween? I have no experience with kids, so I am no help there!

Happy SITS Saturday Sharefest!

Hey there! Thanks for stopping my blog and commenting on the cottage cheese post :)

That is a LOT of applesauce you've canned! Honestly, I really really love applesauce - especially mixed with just a touch a cinnamon. Delish!! :)

Hope your weekend is amazing!

Chocolate-raspberry jam?! I've never heard of it but it sounds yum. I've never canned or made jam before - it's something I'd like to tr one day - that and making homemade ketchup.
