It’s been a busy week canning more stuff.
This is the batch of dill pickles. I did find the Pickle Crisp at Walmart of all places. Nobody in Auburn had it that I could find. So, you only add a 1/4 tsp to the jar and it’s supposed to make them stay crisper. We’ll see. The recipe says to wait about 6 weeks to try them. I put one small jar in the fridge so I’m going to open that in a few weeks and test them out.
We went to Costco on Friday and loaded up on some good food and some nonfood things like laundry soap. I like the Kirkland Free laundry soap. No dyes or fragrance.
I ordered the Complete Ball canning book off Amazon. I think it will be useful and it has loads of interesting things to try. I’m going to go the local fruit stand and see if they have any peaches left. It’s kinda late but they may still have some.
We’ve had lots of zucchini in the garden so we had zoodles last night for dinner with spinach and garlic and parmesan and little bits of fresh mozzarella. Tasty!!!
I have a half of container of ricotta left from the last homemade lasagna so I ‘m going to make another lasagna tonight maybe a meat sauce based one and then another spinach one.
It’s a gym day and then I did most of my house cleaning chores yesterday but I’ll do a few of the weekly home stuff today. That list includes:
- wash mirrors in the house
- water plants as needed
- dust the whole house
- general tidying or putting things away that are left around.
We walked this morning in the park and it was really wonderful to be back there. I will go again on Wednesday. I’m forcing myself to pace going and so 2 days off sounds about right. My foot feels better but I’d guess it’s not 100% or maybe I’ll feel the stress fracture area for a while even if it’s healed?? who knows??
B has to be on call for jury duty all week, so he’s not going anywhere except day stuff if he’s not called. I don’t have any plans this week but have a dental cleaning Wednesday.

The light is certainly changing and it’s getting darker way earlier. It’ll be fall in almost a month. Another season. Our Tahoe camping is mid-September, so that’s going to be different. Not summer. But at least the crowds will be gone.
