What did you make, bake, grow and sew last week? I'd love to know!
More than half the week was written off with our entire household knocked flat with the flu. Thank goodness for a stocked pantry and freezer, and for a meal plan on the fridge. No one who felt like eating went hungry and the medical pantry was fully stocked with all we needed to survive.
By Thursday I was starting to feel a bit better and started to get a few things done.
*canned 18 pints of ugly chicken
*canned 5 quarts of corned beef
Yesterday (Sunday) I went shopping, specifically to buy brisket and mince, and was blessed with finding both on markdown for great prices. It meant they needed to be processed and preserved straight away, but that's what a summer Sunday afternoon is for.
I was able to
*can 6 quarts meatballs in broth
The tomato plants are loaded! I can't wait until they all start to turn red. As soon as I see even a hint of red I'll be picking them and letting them ripen inside. The birds and possums, and now the bats, are quick so I need to be faster.
I made some cards for the Happy Mail Project, using a new range of papers and a fun new punch. I love them! These will be going out later in the week.
