and a cup of coffee can be considered, in some circles, breakfast. Right?
Hit the ground running (OK. I haven't run anywhere in a few years. How about smartly stepping out.) this morning, starting with a phone call from the lady who does the actual shopping for my grocery order. Did I want 10 lbs. or 10 packages of pork chops. That will be 10 lbs., thank you. Ten packages at 3 - 4 lbs. each would put a bit of a dent in my budget. I sure am glad they call me to verify anything questionable on my order.
My grocery order will be delivered sometime this afternoon. It includes 12 lbs. of hamburger that is on sale. I've thawed out another several pounds from my freezer, getting it ready to can. My order also includes the ingredients for canned slaw/relish using the recipe from my last post. There is a gallon of cranberries heating on the stove for juice, with another gallon waiting in the wings. Son has been given the task of going to the store for more canning lids. I forgot to order them.
So when I finish browning and chopping and mixing and stirring and filling jars and processing, I shall return to finish out the Canning Series. Until then, there are lots of good reads in the sidebar. This may take a while. :)
