Two weeks ago Julia came over and taught us how to make pie crust, so some of my apples got used up. I learned it is DUMB to can them in pints, because you're going to need 3 for a pie, so I will just be doing quarts from now on, pints only if there's left over apples. Julia's crust got a 100 out of 100 and the apples got about a 45. Nothing compares with a great crust!
I have been working on the pantry meals and finally broke down and ordered the book when I got my tax return money. Can't wait to get going on some of that. Also made a food storage order and found some spices (after reading My Year Living on Food Storage I felt it more important than ever to get some seasonings) on Myspicer.com. Can I just say, WOW!! It was so much fun to "shop" online and get all excited about the spices. I will get the box Monday and will take some pics then of the cool stuff and then we will be having some major cooking and taste testing going on over here!!
