Hubby was given a large bag of apples over the weekend, what one would call "seconds". I can see (very soon) popping a good DVD in to watch while peeling the apples. I think there are enough apples (if most are good) to make applesauce and turn it into apple butter. I have a recipe for Brown County apple butter which I haven't used in years... which means I have to remember where I put it. Hmmm...
Later today I hope to post the Books Read in August and begin working on the second Book and Film Recommendations List (only ten months late!). If all goes well... and that is a big if considering how many times I've tried to get it written... it will be posted by the end of the week. :)
I want to write a new pantry series, too. I will at least start on it soon. There are a few reasons behind the desire to write these new posts.
First, I've heard more than a few secular and Christian leaders say in the past few months that they feel people should be "stocking up" on food and supplies.
Second, I received an e-mail update a few weeks ago from an emergency preparedness site that I normally respect. The e-mail contained their recommendations for what to purchase each week (on a budget) until one had six months to a year's worth of food "stocked up". I was appalled by their recommendations
I started out online (in the 1990s) as a writer and moderator on an emergency preparedness site and one thing I have found time and time again... it is always easy to tell who lives from their pantry and whose list is entirely theory.
Third, I've had a lot of comments and e-mails asking for more pantry posts. I think as the weather starts to cool (here in the Northern Hemisphere), it gets us thinking of stocking up.
All writing being accomplished in between cooking, cleaning, dishes, laundry, and giving Victoria the attention she
