The nights are getting crispy here.
Like in the 30's crisp. Yikes. When Fall is upon me I get this desire to buy food. Hoard food? Can food. Freeze food. Get.food.in.the.house!
It must be that I devoured Little House on the Prairie books when I was a kid. (Well, actually sometimes I will get a hankering to read them now.) Must get prepared for winter. You would think the grocery stores shut down.
Well, actually, we did have one winter where there were so many avalanches that the stores stopped trucking food down to us. It didn't take long til there were mostly just eggplants at the store.
On Wednesday I scored a box of bananas for $5. Here that is a fabulous price. I have been dehydrating, freezing some for smoothies and freezing some for banana bread. If you have never had real dehydrated bananas (not the greasy ones from the store) you are missing out. Most of the time they end up being eaten as soon as they are done.
I also have a case of Granny Smith apples that are being turned into apple butter, apple pie filling, applesauce and maybe some dried apples too.
The pictures look a little odd. We are having an unusual winter type storm heading in. Strong winds and rain, (thankfully not snow). More like something we have in November and December.
I still have about one more batch of applesauce to make and some more bananas to process but I did get a lot of it done. While I was waiting on things to process, I watched Netflixs and sewed on my Grandmother's Flower Garden blocks. I will show you those soon!!!
