Weekend doings

I baked some banana bread with some over-ripe bananas

canned some jalapenos from our backyard container garden with carrots and onions

Jeff was busy smoking meat for future meals - he smoked 20 pounds of pork loin, 6 whole chickens and a beef roast. Then he sliced all the meat and de-boned the chickens. Last week I made roma sauce for pasta and 6 meals worth of taco meat. I think we are stocked up on easy meals for awhile!

I sewed up a 4th of July dress for Elizabeth at her momma's request.


We also went out the country to see Gavin and take his momma, Amanda, her birthday gift. Gavin and Amanda traveled to east Texas and Arkansas last week to visit relatives there. And this week, Gavin's grandma Ruthie from Indiana is visiting here.
Gavin at his great-grandparents in Arkansas - doesn't he look like he is really enjoying being a little boy in the summer?

Last night, we got a nice little rain - the yard needed the water and we were happy to see our recent gutter installation in action and working just fine.

  1. You always amaze me with all that you do. I love looking at your pyrex dishes, they make me smile!

    Beautiful job on the freezer foods and canning too. I don't have a pressure canner yet - so I just stick with a few acidic foods. I recently made some jam, but in general I do more freezing for now.

    You are very inspiring, Rhonda. :)

    Now that dress is going to look just too cute on me. LOL You did a great job. You have been a busy little bee. I have been busy here all morning. Clearing out a bit more clutter.
    Miss Candi is so confused by all the moving. LOL
    Chat with you soon.
    Hugs,

  10. You've been busy, and that ALL looks good! It's inspiring me to go DO something. I'm sure that's a great feeling to look in your freezer and see stuff ready to work with for a meal. :) That's a great idea!

  12. Wow! I'm so impressed with all you accomplished. I've been trying to get around to some sewing all week and still no success! :-)

    I'm interested in how you use the canned jalapenos? What do you eat them with? We have some jalapenos in our garden. We were going to use some for salsa but I'd like a follow up idea.
