August means Canning & Freezing almost every day!
Frozen zucchini, corn, green beans and lots of berries!
Tomatoes and stuff made with tomatoes (lots of Salsa)! Sweet relish, ham & beans, madiera mincemeat and more.
The start of my canned fruits...pears, cinnamon pears, amaretto pears, peaches(still have more to do), fruit cocktail! And the apples are just getting ready to pick.
I didn't take a picture of my jelly stash! Cherry, grape, raspberry.
I still have lots more to can & freeze, but it will be worth all the work come this winter!
My sister-in-law had a baby shower for her daughter a couple of weeks ago. She asked if I would make the cake and I said "sure!"
I love to decorate cakes, but this one was giving me fits. The bottom sheetcake did not rise right. Not sure why, but it was flat. I didn't want to stay up all night baking another one, so I bought a frozen one decorated with blue flowers. The duck cake that I made, turned out good. I placed it on top of the bought sheetcake and it looked really cute, UNTIL... the bottom cake thawed! The blue flowers started running down the sides of the cake. The new Mommy still loved it!
My daughters made duck cupcakes to go along with it. They were adorable too! (darn it! Those pictures are on my daughters camera)
I really am anxious to get back to sewing soon! I'm getting a little behind with the BOMs that I have started.
