It's November already! And before you know it, it'll be time to plant the garden again! :-) I know -- wishful thinking. Gotta shiver through another winter before we can think about playing in the dirt again. Or do we? I think that instead of dumping and storing the planter boxes, I'll cobble up a couple of shelves and flourescent fixtures, and grow some salad indoors. Should be fun!

I picked up a couple halves of chicken, marked down at the store for quick sale, and cooked them up with some onions, carrots, and celery, and some herbs and spices. Ended up with a bowl full of chicken pieces for biscuits and gravy, a few very nice chicken salad sandwiches, *and* ten pints of excellent canned chicken stock, all residing on the shelves down cellar, and ready for some yummy soups, noodles, and other dishes later on.
Then Saturday we did this:
Cari wanted to come down and "Learn how to make applesauce so I can teach mommy!" So we did!
That's a Victorio Food Strainer she's cranking -- best investment we've made for the kitchen in quite a while. They're around $60 at
