Monday, Monday! What a day!
I was up as usual and just after breakfast went out to shop for the last items I needed for all my cooking. Carrots, peppers and fresh ground beef.
I made a double batch of my Chili recipe with the fresh tomatoes from the garden, and a batch of hearty Chicken and Vegetable Soup with the leftover chicken from our dinner last night and broth I had made with the bones. (It’s easy to use your crock pot, put the bones in with water, onion, carrots and celery and set at low for about 24 hours!
So here I am with 8 more quarts of meals to be put up for the winter. But after 5 hours of preparation, stirring, and simmering, I’m just a wee bit tired!
Tuesday finds me driving down to see my girls! Mandy and Savannah! I can hardly wait. I have to say, spending so much time with them, has been the highlight of my summer!
