I absolutely cannot believe how much has been stuffed into this one single day! It’s been a wonderful Monday and a great start to the work week. This morning we were so pleasantly surprised when my nephew and his wife announced that they are now expecting baby number 4, due this Christmas. These two make great babies and we couldn’t be happier for them. Then a friend dropped by with her cute little power-house baby and we had a nice visit.
Then the day’s work really got started. I had to bake bread this morning and while my dough was rising I prepped enough cucumbers, onions and peppers for a 3 hour brine.
While that was in the brine, and after I punched my dough and got it for the second rise in the pans. I went back out to the garden and picked enough corn, 32 cobs, to can 14 pint jars and have enough left over for corn on the cob for supper.
The corn of course had to be done in my pressure canner and for a while my oven and stove top worked over time. It was busy!
In the end of my crazy busy day….I ended up with 2 perfect loaves of bread, 14 more pints of corn done giving me 22 jars in all and 14 fine pints of bread and butter pickles. We finished the day with an evening business meeting and now I am sitting with my feet up. I will sleep well and dream of wholesome food and bouncing babies.
