A Batch of Homemade Tomato Soup

This time I used my late FIL's blender. A very expensive one he used to make vegetable juices. Just one cranked on that thing, made this tomato soup easy to strained. I also used bigger jars and citric acid this year instead of 1/2 pint jars and lemon juice.

Salsa Dip

My first year making canned salsa. I made a batch a long time ago using a mix packet and refrigerated. I am not too happy with this one. Maybe I am missing something. I have to look for a mix at my local grocery store. I have to open them all up, mix in the salsa packet, reheat then reseal.

Bread & Butter Pickles

I made two different ways. DH pointed out that the slices are hard to fork out of the jars. My next batch was wedge bread and butter pickles, of course. I will not post the ingredients here because you can easily find everything online.

I made one batch of slices, and two batches of wedges because DH preferred the second one. I was thinking of making more but my cucumbers had others plans. They ripen on me when I wasn't looking for a week. hehehe

Filet Mignon Wrap in Bacon

Actually I think this one is mignonette. Smaller than regular filet mignon hahaha. Yup, i just follow the direction on the package. Eight minutes each side, and done.

With stir fry vegetables and rice with turmeric on the sides.
