failure, success and the near future





OK, first the failure. Did you see the picture of what was supposed to be french bread? Well, something certainly went wrong. The hubby wanted me to try less salt, so I cut it in half - maybe that was it. I'll try it again soon...maybe need a different recipe, but the other from website all worked well. Oh well, at least the next item worked...


Success on the apple sauce. The yield was 5 delicious pints. I have never made apple sauce let alone can it before, but it is tasty. I just boiled the apples down with a little water, added sugar, cinnamon, nutmeg, and cloves. mmmm... Also, I discovered these awesome canning jar lids which keep the food fresh after you open it. Yeah!


And I willing shortly be stepping outside of the ol' Amber box and getting certified to be a soccer referee...can you believe it? We could use some extra cash to purchase the items needed for our farm, and I thought it would be fun do something totally different, so this is it! The clinic to get certified is weekend after next and my uniform came in today. Wish me luck!
