Remember all the abundance of produce that I was tripping over last fall and trying very hard to appreciate? All the canning and preserving we do during August and September (in the midst of soccer season) is overwhelming at times. We know we’re doing it for our family’s health and to save money…but it really is a lot of hard work!
But now that it’s (almost) February? Now THIS is why we work so hard in the fall!!
Everytime we run out of applesauce, we go to the pantry. Each time I decide to make spaghetti or pizza? We get out a jar of sauce. We’ve enjoyed many a grilled cheese sandwich with homemade tomato soup. We’ve got a great supply of salsa left. We have canned peaches to eat in cottage cheese for a quick and easy snack. Our supply of frozen green beans and corn is holding up just fine, and we haven’t been holding back.
Healthy food doesn’t get much easier than this.
All that hard work back in the fall? It was SO worth it.
Remind me of this post in September when I’m again overwhelmed and tripping over boxes of apples and tomatoes.
