Salsa...


My friend Lee has been such a blessing in so many ways, one of which is when she shares the bounty of her garden! Tomatoes! So I went to work at making salsa, since it was kinda last minute, I was on my own(no time to plan for Mom and Grama to come up!) I was saying that it was a lot harder to do this alone, and that I was missing the extra hands and Ryan suggested I enlist the boys to help, and boy did they! I was dunking them in boiling water and as fast as I could get them out they were peeling and chopping them! They thought it was fun for a little while, then by the time they were fizzling out on me~we were already done! Many hands really do make light work, even when the hands are small!

Thank you Lord for my hard working little men! And my big one too! He (Ryan) has been such a blessing to me as he helps so much with the kids, and the housework! This year as I was dreading the school year, (knowing how far behind I can get on the housework) he stepped in and has helped so much (even more than usual!) I certainly do have the BEST HUSBAND EVER! Thanks Ry~I love you! And thanks for the SWEET post you wrote on my birthday~you're AWESOME!!!

On your lesson plans this should be listed as "home ec...food preservation skills". (I'm not kidding.)

I just made my first salsa ever this year (thanks to Mrs. Wages) and we really like it. It will have to be an annual thing.

Salsa is an annual event around here. This year Bill planted a garden for the first time at our "new" house. He planted 20 tomato plants!! Needless to say I made 76 pints of salsa this year and even tried my hand at homemade spaghetti sauce for the first time. I made up the recipe and it was really good.
