Saucy Saturday

If I had known how busy I was going to be today, maybe I wouldn't have stayed up past midnight last night while my Honey finished some work he had to do (I can't even remember the last time I stayed up so late!).

So what I did today?

*fed the boys breakfast
*folded a load of laundry
*ironed Honey Daddy's shirts
*cleaned up the kitchen
*made homemade spaghetti sauce (with tomatoes from our garden)
*canned 21 beautiful pints of homemade sauce

Don't these look yummy?

*ran to the grocery store and did a little shopping (alone!)
*made a steak dinner for Honey Daddy since he is leaving tomorrow to go to a conference in San Francisco for a week (*sigh)
*cleaned up the kitchen (again)
*cut Honey Daddy's hair
*gave the boys a bath and put them to bed
*took a picture of my sauce so I could blog about it!

Now I think I will go upstairs, get a bowl of ice cream and RELAX!


  1. That spaghetti sauce looks yummy! Mind if I come for a visit to try some? :)

  2. That is sooooo cool! I've never "canned" my own sauce or tomatoes. It doesn't help that I only grow about 10 tomatoes per year :( But I do make big batches of sauce from costco crushed tomatoes and then freeze the sauce.

  3. Oh you rock, girl! I love that you canned all that. I have never canned anyrthing, and from your garden yet. Awesome!

  4. homemade sauce is yummy! hope you get some rest today

  5. We're going crazy with tomatoes, do please share how you can your sauce. It looks delicious!

  6. Busy mommy! The sauce looks fantastic!!!

  7. Yes the sauce looks yummy! What a productive day even if you were tired. :)

  8. Where do you store your gallons of sauce and for how long? My husband makes a wonderful sauce that I would love to can and store...
    Once again I wish I had your green thumb...
