Just a little canning

I just haven't been able to get much crafting done these days. I am certainly eager to get started on some new projects, but my schedule has been filled with lots of time in the kitchen. Canning season is fun in the beginning, but not so fun after 2 weeks of standing on your feet in a hot, messy kitchen. So far, I  have canned 1 case of dill pickles, 2 cases of sweet relish, 1 case of hot pickle relish, 3 cases of corn & a few jars of tomatoes. I also froze 200lbs of potatoes and 6 lg bags of corn on the cob. There is still so much that needs to be done. I hope I can get tomatoes, pears, salsa, and maybe some spaghetti sauce done this week of next. The great thing about all this canning is the fact that my kitchen is well stocked for the winter. It seems like a ton of work, but all this canned yummy goodness is well worth the work. I love knowing that everything we eat is natural with no junk added. 

Thank goodness for Pinterest during this time of year. Let's just say I am an addict. In between every batch of canned goods I am pinning away. I love seeing all the fall pins lately. I definitely have found some fun fall projects I want to give a try. This time of year is my absolute games, apple cider, leaves falling, cooler nights, kids in school, oh my list could go on.
I guess my pressure cooker is calling, so I better run.

Have a great week,
