Hello Fall, Part 1

We've been really making an effort this year to take advantage of the fall season.  It seems like it just slips by most years. We've had a great month or more of weekend outings in the perfect weather.  In fact, there are so many pictures I wanted to load that I ran out of "free storage" space on blogger and was instructed to purchase more, but I declined.  So, these fall pictures will have to be split up into a couple posts. 
Here's part 1: Apple Picking and Eating with friends

Several weeks ago, I made homemade spaghetti sauce using a friend's recipe.  I thought it might be fun to document how long it took me to finish this one task with 2 kids involved.  So here you go:

1. Blanch and peel tomatoes.

  2. Chop all vegetables and saute.

 3. Cook and then puree.


 4. Congratulate self on job well done....then start to clean up the mess!

Total time:  roughly 3 hours and 15 min.
Result: EXCELLENT sauce to put in the freezer (thanks for the recipe, Reardons!) and a feeling of accomplishment:)
