Yesterday I put up 9 quarts and 2 pints spaghetti sauce and 5 pints of pizza sauce. There was really no difference between the spaghetti sauce and the pizza sauce other than I cooked down the pizza sauce until it was a lot thicker before canning it. It all looks real good and all-in-all I'm glad I have it.
It was a very cool morning here on the ranch and I got up worried about hubby. He hurt his back yesterday at work. He even left work and came home to rest. That's scary because he would never leave work unless he was really hurting. I know worry is something I need to put away but it sure is hard.
I'm making jalapeno poppers and cheeseburgers tonight for supper. I've never made poppers before but I am absolutely crazy about them!! The recipe I found instructs that they can also be fried and then frozen or frozen and then fried and eaten later. That's my kind of recipe!! If they are good then what few jalapenos I have will be going in the freezer stuffed and breaded for later use. I'll let you know how they turn out and if they are good, I'll see that you get the recipe on my Recipes page.
I also started a big pot of beans. Tomorrow is Frugal Friday. It's something new that I've decided to start doing and have already talked it over with hubby. He wasn't too excited but succumbed to my cajoling and agreed!! First of all we are eating meatless on Friday and I'm going to try to only use what is already in my cabinets in the house - never go to the store for an extra this or that. Honestly, it really shouldn't be that hard . . . but as soon as someone says that - you will undoubtedly run out of milk or flour, sugar or eggs. The tough part here is the fact that it doesn't matter if you have company visiting or not - no excuses. Other than, of course, we can always decide to go out and eat!!LOL!! We start this tomorrow. I'm pumped!!!
