Peeling good?

With all the back to school activities, I decided to can again! Why not? The kids are here to help for a few more days. So, no stamping again. And I REALLY need to! I have several cards that need to be in the mail now. Tomorrow....I will have to find time.
Potatoes were on sale at my favorite veggie stand so I bought a mere 50 pounds. That may sound like a lot, but it really isn't And, it was pretty cheap! For about $30 I ended up with 32 jars or super yummy potatoes. In case you were just dying to know, potatoes are uber easy to do. We peeled them, cut them into approx 1" cubes (no, I didn't measure, but...just for a visual...) and cram a bunch in the jar, put about 1 teaspoon of salt in and fill the jar the rest of the way with water. I did these in my oven at 275 for 2-1/2 hours. I don't think they needed to go that long, but boy are they good! (Yes, we do open a jar the day we make them and try them out. ) Now we are even more anxious to do sweet potatoes. They are going to be SO good! I will have to watch the sales for those. We did take some 'peely' good pictures, but...they will have to wait til tomorrow.
On another note, I did run tonight. My sister recommended running at night after dinner and I did much better! In fact, I went one time around the big block, came in for a drink and decided to go again! I don't know if i will be able to keep up with her, but...at least I will make it I think!
