I just spent twenty minutes scraping over an old, matted rug with a a cat brush.


It was incredibly effective whilst simultaneously being incredibly disgusting.

So, canning.

I've been doing this for a couple years and this season I went full fucking bore. We've done tomato sauce pretty regularly because okay I am Italian, when it hits August a klaxon starts going off in my head all

RED SAUCE RED SAUCE RED SAUCE RED SAUCE RED SAUCE RED SAUCE

until I get off my ass and buy thirty pounds of tomatoes and stick em through the grinder. The canning started out secondary to the sauce making, simply because we didn't have the storage space for that much sauce. And now it is becoming our fucking way of life.

I actually got my shit together this season, and I don't think a SINGLE FUCKING WEEKEND went by without me sticking some sort of vegetable in a mason jar and boiling the fuck out of it. Don't even want to think about how much in the hole I am to the farmers market but whatever whatever that's what it's there for.

ANYWAY

Did the last batch of canning/etc this weekend, because the green beans are fucking done and I had to get one last batch in. Of course, it was a giant clusterfuck, because I was due for it, but I made it through because I AM THE CANNING CHAMPION /VICTORY LAP


KICKING IT OLD SCHOOOOOOOOL )

Semi-relatedly, I finally found my scanner cables so I can do my con reports yay!
