Today I am going to be the mad scientist...Mwaaahaaahaaaaa! (rolling hands gleefully together) Actually - we had a good crop of red potatoes from our barrells we did and I am going to experiment with canning them. We won't be able to eat them all before they start shrivelling - so am thinking in longterm storage. I can use the canned potatoes for chowders, stews, soups, casseroles, hashbrowns - maybe even be able to mash them! I can hardly wait!
Last night we had an awesome time visiting with fellow cubscout families at our end of summer hotdog roast. We had about 35-40 people. Our friends have a really nice fire-pit so we did it at their house. We didn't get rained on - even though the sky threatened rain. The kids had a blast, got nice and dirty, came home for showers and crashed for the night. I love cubscouts.
