This week I…
Gave canning apple sauce another try…and once again, my jars leaked. Clearly, we’re doing something wrong, still. Everything else we ever can comes out great!
Got excited about the latest updates to Facebook, while most of the other people I know complained.
Checked out an issue of Cooking Light magazine from the library and discovered why so many people like it so much. I think it’s the first magazine I’ve read that’s full of recipes for the kind of food I regularly eat.
Took one of my classes outside and got a bunch of mosquito bites. It seemed like a good idea at the time.
Made Mama Pea’s Mmm Sauce for the first time and loved it. I’m pretty sure it’s going to be making more appearances on my plate in the near future.
Joined the Clever Girls Collective. Not too much should change around here on your end, but I’d love your feedback if you don’t like the minor changes (a new sidebar badge and the occasional sponsored post to help fund this site).
Enjoyed the return of fall shows to my Hulu queue, including Modern Family and Castle.
Video chatted with my sister on my smartphone—technology is so awesome!
Had a lengthy discussion with one of my classes about what kind of class pet we should get. My answer is “no class pet,” but that apparently wasn’t the point of the conversation. I’m not sure I’m responsible enough to have an animal in my home, never mind surrounded by teenagers.
Welcomed fall wholeheartedly by increasing my hot tea intake, going apple picking with some of my blogger friends, baking apple crisp, making soup and planning 2 more soups for this week and eating a pumpkin donut from Dunkin’ Donuts.
