My vanilla beans! I had found this post @ Heavenly Homemakers and really wanted to try making my own.... This was easy peasy to do. The hardest thing for me was acting like I knew what I was doing at the liquor store. But, with a couple of small bottles of vodka and my french vanilla beans I began the long process of making homemade vanilla
At the Hispanic market this weekend I picked up 5lbs of Roma tomatoes. Now, everybody in the world but us probably knew that Romas are the maters to use for the best sauces, salsas...........and homemade ketchup.
My book came on Friday and I was so anxious to try the ketchup recipe...
So a bit of chopping..... a bit of boiling..
I am not sure I have tasted ketchup this good.... we decided that we needed chili cheese fries for dinner.. toss the sliced taters with olive oil and bake... cover with chili and top with cheese... and dip in ketchup..
Now, in between errands, cleaning and petting a few cats... lets see how this weeks goals are going:
1. Continue decluttering I am so proud of myself today. I was in the mater bath and tossed stuff I knew we would never use and filled another box with stuff to donate to the local woman's shelter.
2. Continue work on fire pit
3. Continue work on bathroom
4. apple sauce
5. apple pie filling
8. plant spinach/kale
9.Hit the discount store int he big city for canned goods we are running low on
10. transplant aloe
.. and I really didn't expect the vanilla so making that was a bonus do.
Press in and Press on
