Can you believe that it's already the end of August? It feels as if summer just flew by! With the public schools starting back up this week, I realize just how NOT ready I am for Fall!
And Fall is my favorite time of the year!!!
One of the things that I am behind in is canning. Because our garden did so poorly this year, I have to buy, or mooch from friends and family, fruits & veggies to can. I am picking up 4 boxes of tomatoes, 2 boxes of peaches, 1 box of pears, and a box of pickling cukes tomorrow. By the end of the week, if I haven't collapsed from exhaustion, I'm going to hunt down some shell beans to put up.
Nothing like saving things until the last minute!
Since kitchen #1 is still under construction and kitchen #2 will be busy canning, I'm bringing out the trusty crockpot. I love my crockpot.
Here's what's on the menu this week...
Spicy shredded beef (from a chuck roast), corn tortillas, sliced heirloom tomatoes
Elk sausage, Ezekiel bread toast
Cod fish & sweet potato chips, homemade tartar sauce, coleslaw
Baked Oatmeal w/ apples
Potato salad, chicken/apple sausages, peaches & cottage cheese
Granola & yogurt
Cheese Tortellini Pesto Pasta Salad
