Looks Like it's Going to be a Busy Saturday

    This is what I brought home yesterday from the garden I share with my mom at her house, along with small bag of seckel pears that didn't make it into the photo. Mr Chiots picked the pears, which weren't as abundant as they were 3 years ago, but we still got a decent amount. The peppers were all getting red, which is what I've been waiting for to make a batch of fire roasted peppers.

    Last night I made 4 loaves of zucchini bread, a batch of squash blossom sauce, and I put three trays of tomatoes in the oven to roast overnight. Since we have today off I'll be spending my day making: ketchup with the roasted tomatoes, canning crushed tomatoes, fire roasting and canning the red peppers, pickling the Hungarian peppers, making up a batch of pesto, cooking up the green beans and broccoli for lunch and most like getting those pears in the oven to make pearsins. Whew, just thinking about all of that while I type this after midnight at the end of a long day makes me tired. But it's the season and I know there are tons of you out there just like me spending long hours squirreling away garden goodies in the pantry for the long winter.

      All of this is going to be so delicious come winter. I hope you have a dishwasher, either human or machine!
