Remember my whole theory that making a list would help me get more done in the day? It did not work. I avoided the list as much as possible.
On the list was this corner of paperwork, video games and cookbooks. I did take care of it.
How did I avoid my list? By spending a good part of my day posting photos from childhood and talking to former classmates/teachers. This would be the 600-word spelling challenge from 6th grade. I was the only one in my class to get them all right and get the silver dollar. And, yes, 30+ years later I’m still hanging on to that bit of success.
Not on the list was dehydrating Cherokee Purples that I grew in the greenhouse, but it had to be done. I’ll use them on homemade pizzas.
I carried two things off the sidewalk to storage. Not quite the whole list, but something. I also did two loads of laundry. I was listed to do four. Yep. I was a huge failure at “the list” when I didn’t clean the chicken coop either, but you know the saying…there’s always tomorrow.
I sautéed up some onions and peppers.
Added it with tomatoes to penne pasta with a garlic alfredo sauce and topped with shredded parmesan and pepperjack sided with garlic bread. Mmmmm…good!!
Oh, I also cut up 12 cups of tomatoes yesterday and this morning Olivia and I cut up the peppers and onions. We just canned 116 ounces of salsa. Why the odd phrase in ounces? Because I used my jelly jars which are a pint and a half, and well….all that math gets confusing. LOL (I guess it comes to 3.625 quarts).
Now on to more procrastinating!!
