Leah the late bloomer

My Mother practically died when I told her I wanted to borrow her canning stuff. I canned tomatoes this summer, only 4 quarts. I am now canning applesauce. I love homemade applesauce and Ed was convinced he didn't like it, so a challenge was issued. I made zucchini bread and then proceed to make applesauce out of 9 lbs. of apples, Empire and Fuji to be exact. May I add it does not even contain sugar, a little cinnamon yes but no sugar. Ed tried it and liked it so much he decided to join in.

I must say I am quite proud of the finished product. And it is delicious.

I talked to my Mom on the phone today and asked if I could borrow her sewing machine until Christmas. I am making most of my presents this year.Again she almost died. I could hear her picking herself up off the floor, almost as good as the time I called home and told her I got my bellybutton pierced when I was 15.(It was a joke) I always thought I was the black sheep of the family, not a domestic bone in my body, but I guess I was just Leah the late bloomer. I may have found a new hobby. It goes great with our new eating style. Organic and natural. I never thought I would turn into this.

Good for you. I love homemade applesauce with no sugar. Sugar isn't all that is is cracked up to be. Glad to see your "Molly Mormon" skills coming through :-) So what are you making for Christmas? I promise I won't tell :-)

I will list the items that I am giving to people who cannot read.
Anya - puffy tutu, hide and seek bag(filled w/ rice you have to find all the objects), and soap crayons.
Kevin - pesonalized board book. I am still figuring out how to do this. I will see if I can pull it off.
G. Grandma Lonegan - she doesn't read my blog. I am making her photo pillows of the kids for her couches.
All the others read my blog but if you want some ideas just email me. LLonegan@yahoo.com
