Our First Egg

Very exciting news here today.  We got our first egg!  I guess maybe we need to get out more, if just getting an egg gets us this excited.  But we think it is beautiful.

Well, we finally got the pink apples worked up today.  This is what they looked like when we cut them up.

They are so pretty.  Remember last year, we purchased the steam juicer and the Roma sauce maker.  They have been so helpful already this year.  We just quartered the apples, no peeling necessary.  Put them in the steam juicer and let them cook.

This is what the juice looks like.  Such a beautiful color.  We got 5 pts of juice.  The juice is concentrated.  For every pint you get a quart of juice.

Then after the apples cooked in the steam juicer we ran them through the sauce maker.  We got 6 pts of applesauce.  Thanks so much, Donna, for sharing these with us.    We are working on peaches now.  They are canning as I type.  We saved the peelings from the peaches.  We are going to put them in the steam juicer and make juice from them.  I like the fact that there is hardly any waste. 

Remember how I said last weekend was unusually cool here.  Well, I can hardly remember that now.  It has been HOT all week.  I know not as hot as many of you but still hot.    Temperatures have been in the 90’s outside and about that hot inside our house.    I am so thankful to a blogger friend who gave me the idea of using a propane unit to do our canning on.  We put it on the front porch and it makes such a difference keeping the house a little cooler.  Most of the heat is out there not in the kitchen.  

Well, we better get busy doing some cleanup.  Enjoy your day and God bless.

Exciting News

No picture with this post.  Just exciting news.  Jessica is pregnant!!!!!!!  Isn’t the God we serve amazing.  Her estimated due date is early June.  They are both extremely happy and of course MawMaw is too.  More on that little tidbit later.  About my selling day at the Fair.  Not too good.  I paid $30.00 for the spot and made $32.00.  A big $2.00 profit, but at least I made that much.  It was however a fun day.  I met lots of different people and enjoyed lots of sunshine.  And of course spent some time with Daniel.  How much better could a day be.  I’ve been shopping today so we are behind with school and other chores.  I better get busy.  God Bless.
