Remember the 132 pounds of peaches mentioned a couple posts ago?
Yeaaaa..... soooo..... I'm just now getting around to canning those suckers.
All by myself.
Kill me now.
I spent from 10:00am to 7:00pm yesterday doing absolutely nothing other than canning those blasted things. Well, with the occasional baby feeding, diaper changing, take lunch to hubbying type of interruptions.
And the worst part is, I'm not done! *whimper*
Okay, that's not the worst part. The worst part is, I'm out of chocolate.
Nobody should have to can alone without chocolate. I'm pretty sure it's one of the fundamental laws of the universe.
And have you ever seen what a house looks like after being left to the mercy of several toddlers over the space of nine whole hours with minimal parental intervention?
Oh ho. Believe me when I say, you don't want to. Ever.
It's the stuff nightmares are made of.
And so help me, if Alayna colors on the wall one more time.... *deep intake of breath - think happy thoughts... think happy thoughts...*
Anyway, besides those fuzzy little torture devises known as peaches, I've also been shredding our mutant monster zucchinis up for the freezer.
What? Don't you look at me like that! Whoever said you shouldn't play with your food, clearly had no sense of imagination.
Otherwise they could have been zucchini warriors too!
'Cause when you have that many zucchinis you might as well make the most of it. Besides all the ones in the picture, I also gave away four others and we've already eaten two.
All the size of Texas.
So now I have enough shredded zucchini to make 46 loaves of zucchini bread.
Bet you can't guess what my family will be getting for Christmas this year?
Anyway, those lean green fighting machines were so big that the kids had a hard time carrying them around. But they tried! Oh how they tried.
So next time someone tells you not to play with your food, just whip out your bandanna and say, "Oh ya? Watch this..."
