Can't Decide on Food Mill

DH started another order at Amazon, and I am looking for things that I needed in our kitchen for our next year harvest. Yes, thinking ahead. I am planning on planting a lot of tomatoes to make tomato soup because I cannot find any at my local grocery store without high fructose corn syrup. They have some but DH do not like them with basil and other stuff.

He likes the original recipe. And today I am looking for food mill. OXO food mill came on top, but the most expensive. Others looks doable but  a lot of waste food from what I read and do not push a lot of food through. I think my first job to do is visit my local flea market in March or April when they first open to find things that I needed in the kitchen on preserving. I still have a lot of time, because tomatoes will not be ready until July or August next year.

I'm still hoping for apples and other fruits preserve from my backyard. Winter last longer this year, I hope less for next year. Plus, we don't have "pick your own" this year because of it. I like it fresh from the tree. They do sell fruits in the farms in my area, but I don't know how long they have them sitting on the shelves. I like to know how fresh they are when I want to preserve it for our use. Clear gel will be on my shopping cart too.

If you have any suggestions, please write them down on comment sections. Thanks.

Whew, Internet Sure Make Everything Easier

I only have a few minutes to update. We are sharing DH cell phone unlimited internet, so I might as well write something here...:) He connected the phone to my desktop and the speed is doable. Like my title said, internet makes everything easier for me. I made cheese cake over the week, and for the life of me I can't remember the sugar measurement and I don't have the recipe written.

Good thing DH came home earlier than usual and I was able to look up this blog for the recipe. DH scold me about not having internet. My answer was, "I am tired telling the children to slow down with youtube." Besides I got plenty of time cleaning and rearranging the house. I kinda like it, I have so much time to spend on house work than sitting infront of my pc. I even sorted the childrens' toys over the weekend. Before, when we have internet, I just put them in a container, who cares.

Have a great weekend everyone.

No Internet

Yap, my cable company quit on me. My children watched too many movies and youtubes and our only cable company let us go. So, the only way I can update my blogs is thru my local library, which I do not plan on going and using their internet. DH have unlimited internet on his phone but he is always at work and meetings. So, that is that, we don't have any plan getting the internet back after the 30 days period that the cable company said that they will re-consider. More time for me to do some sewing and canning...woohoo I can't wait...NOT...ha ha h ha ha
