So, it's back to normal here at home with my one mellow child. :)

Summer is winding down here, but we have some "annual events" to accomplish in the short time that Brooke is home. We spent some time on the lake Sunday afternoon. It's always fun when we can share that with some of our college kids. Just three were back on Sunday, plus Brooke.
Brooke & Brennan are getting some good use out of the trampoline tonight. We'll see if they make it the whole night! They even have a laptop out there to watch movies. This will probably be the extent of the camping this year.
*Update: They made it until about 6:30 a.m., when a pretty bad storm with lots of lightening blew in. Brooke was a little concerned about lying in water while their shelter was supported by metal poles. :)

She'll be home for just about two weeks before she has to head back to school.

JUST KIDDING!!!!!! I did NOT use her "Deluxe Chopper"!!! ;)
Anyway...once all those veggies are chopped up tiny, add 1/4 cup canning salt and let stand 3 hours or overnight. Drain well. Add:
6 cups sugar
1T dry mustard
1 qt. vinegar
Cook all this for 1/2 hour on high.
It looks like this makes about 9 pints, plus a little extra that went straight into the fridge.
Obviously I have more to do today than I care to think about and I am procrastinating, because here I am...blogging about relish!!!
Today, a little bit of this is going on...
It makes stickers and is only at $9.99 right now. Hmmmm...it could come in handy, but I can't imagine why he is not excited about the $500.00 I already dropped on him this week...
Doesn't all of that just get you excited??!!!!! It's enough to keep me up at night planning away!!! I'd better get back to the relish...
