Today has and is a busy day for me...I'm in the midst of canning some potatoes and chicken for chicken salad...and the phone rings announcing that the Great Grandson is on his way to making his debut (within the next 24 hours)! He will Be Cecil the 4th. Everyone is excited even thought we all knew it was a boy!..Hard to realize that your kids are becoming grandparents...Jeeze! I never thought I'd live this long, but it's a welcome blessing.
I won't bore you with the peeling of all these potatoes :o), thank goodness for the new gadgets that you only have to give a quick scrape. Potatoes french cut waiting to be sprayed and put into the oven, cooled and "Penny" will seal them and I'll put them into
The freezer..the quartered potatoes will go into the canning jars so I can use them for mashed or just boiled :o)...that will be good for those lazy days or when potatoes cost too much I can snub my nose at them :o)
I put some vinegar in the water to keep them from turning brown while I waited this morning to rinse them and get them jarred..Not bad if I say so myself.
The chicken gave me a little start , I heard a pop and I thought one of the jars had cracked..and I thought "nothing I can do about it now until they are finished ...well thank goodness it was nothing that I could see..maybe I was just tired..anyway, maybe I could have bought some chicken for salad, but it's not the same and I like dark meat because it's moist , less mayo.
I think I did a good day's work, I'm tired
That's not the end of my excitement...Our "Daisy" sent me the "Onion Bloomer" today..I read the instruction's real quick but I think I need a degree to work it :o) but I'm going to try it...and soon..I've seen them and they make a lovely presentation.
Thanks Daisy, are you sure you not a Rose :o) your mighty sweet.
