Hello everyone! I am home (for a minute)! We arrived home from our vacation late last night...or was it early this morning? I was taking inventory in my pantry this afternoon and making a grocery list for the week when I remembered that I still need to "can" salsa this summer. I'd spoken to my grandma a couple of weeks ago to set a date, but we never got around to it. You see, I'm using her tomatoes and peppers and her canning kitchen. I decided that I better call and make plans to head home soon. Turns out that the tomatoes are ready now, so I'm outta here again on Tuesday. Which leaves me with no meal plan for the week. I know that I'm making Buffalo Chicken Sandwiches again tomorrow night. Man, are those good! I've also got upcoming posts about a Fettuccine Alfredo that I scraped together with leftovers in my fridge, a basic tuna salad, an easy beef Stroganoff, and of course, I'll be writing all about how I make and preserve salsa. But for now, I've got to catch up on the next episode of Top Chef that I recorded while we were away and fold some laundry! Just for fun, here are a couple of my favorite shots from our trip last week:
My little family aboard the Susan Constant, one of the three ships that landed in America's first permanent settlement in 1607.
My little vintners pretending to stomp grapes.
Have a wonderful week everyone!
