In other news...I was innocently walking through the grocery store this morning when I was suddenly assaulted by several rather large bags of carrots. They just jumped right into my cart! It was a rather pleasant surprise when I saw there very reasonable price. I decided to bring them home. My children cheered and promptly picked up the peeler and assumed their positions for the canning ritual that has become an almost daily occurance at our home this summer. My daughter actually had two friends come over and help. I didn't even ask for this help, I promise! But heck, I'm not dumb enough to turn them away! I think they had fun....we ended up with 60 pints and 7 quarts of carrots. I may have to do more....my vegetarian daugther has already opened two pints to eat and they are still warm from the oven!
Aren't they lovely?? (The girls are pretty cute too! )I 'paid' the girls for their services by treating them to a movie. If you have not gone to see Evan Almighty yet, GO! It is a wonderful movie!! WAY better than Bruce Almighty. (sorry Jim) Steve can be funny without being naughty! What a thought! It was funny, clean and frankly...inspiring. I highly recommend it.
