Wanna make God Laugh? Tell Him your plans.

I am going to have that emblazoned on a T-shirt or apron, or painted on my bedroom wall one day.

The canning rack Bret picked up for me is too big for my biggest pots, and Wal-Mart was all out of racks. I thought of using old jar rings in the bottom of the pot placed together to raise the jars up, but I'm too new at this to want to experiment. So I'll make some Bavarian Apple Cakes this afternoon and then freeze a few bags of slices. The neighbors have loads more, so I will have my opportunity to learn how to can soon.

Maybe God just thought I'd get all bent out of shape trying to do it on the first day of school...I'm one of those people who has a hard time with flexible scheduling. I tend to be a little to rigid and that has been the toughest thing about schooling at home for me. This is going to be the year I learn flexibility, too, I think.

  1. Bummer! You can freeze apple sauce too--and jelly and butter don't need a canner if you use the inversion method. Those big yellow summer apples make awesome sauce! Hit thrift stores for a big canner instead of a smaller rack-you won't be sorry!
