WE JUST THOUGHT WE WERE DONE...


We just could not let all the apples go to waste, so I headed back down south this morning and we got so much accomplished, even with me staying on the bar stool most of the day. It is amazing what you can get done by slidding around on a bar stool. I fixed four apple pies for my parents to freeze, fixed one to bring back to DH and we managed to can the following:

18 jars of apple butter
26 jars of apple jelly
11 jars of peach butter
9 jars of peach jelly

The peach butter turned out to be heavenly. Mom picked up the peaches somewhere in town yesterday and said she wanted peach jelly and butter, so that is what she got. Let's just hope that no one offers to give away anymore apples cause we just don't know how to say no. Mom and I sent Dad to the den to relax in his recliner since he nor Mom got much sleep for some reason last night. I am sure as soon as I pulled out of the driveway they were both kicked back relaxing.

AWTM's ears had to have been buring today. Daddy was talking about you again throughout the day. He is heading your way the first part of next month, but I have warned him that you might not be home.

P.S. DH just left for work and he stopped as he was going out the door and said to me "You need to remember who's pie that is in the kitchen and don't be burning the rubber off that knee thingie going back and forth to the kitchen to eat it." He must have been reading my mind, but now I have to prove a point. LOL...He did let me have one peice as soon as I got home with it, so I guess one peice will just have to do me...

We have had beautiful peaches so far this year, but I eat them too fast to do anything industrious with them.

That pie looks gorgeous!

And, like AWTM says, SIT DOWN and rest...just make sure you brought the pie to your resting place with you before you plop down!
