Friday we had no school. That meant I didn't go to work.
The day started with this:
Then to my grandkid's elementary school for the costume parade.
Keiti and Kels dressed up, waiting for the parade to start.
Mr. Cy - a happy Incredible Hulk. (No masks on the face, just on top of the head)
Miss Em, a surprised witch with a heart on her face?
After the parade, it was time to go to Candice's house for a rip-roaring time bottling vegetable soup. There were 2 women and 5 "helpers" to get the job done.
Here's one of the helpers now! As you can see, we wouldn't have been able to bottle without her, even though we tried.
We used 90 lbs of potatoes, 15 lbs of carrots, 12 pounds of celery, and 15 pounds of onions to fill 86 quarts with the soup.
I could hardly move when we were finished. It does feel good now that it's done! If you'd like the recipe for this soup, click here. It's great to put on the shelf and in a pinch, you have delicious homemade soup within minutes!
Chicken soup with bottled chicken and a can of corn.
Beef soup with tomatoes, hamburger, corn and green beans.
I'm getting hungry so I better go.
