But feel free to send jars anyway, friends, because these will be full soon enough. And jars. I <3 them.
We picked apples this weekend. They're pretty small this year, maybe because it was a cooler than normal summer, but most likely because we have failed to prune our apple trees properly. That's ok, because we're #feedingthewildlife with many of the small ones, and aside from the 6 or so pounds that I need to make caramel apple jam (oooh. I should make sure I have enough half pint jars for the two batches I'm planning...), we're giving the rest to a friend. That's right, friends. We are making zero applesauce this year. Kinda sad, but also ok, because making applesauce in canning quantities is a lot of work.
I don't know why I'm bothering with a menu plan at this time of year y'all, because we rarely actually make what's on the menu. I guess it's because it's such a habit at this point, and if by some miracle we do end up eating supper together, I'll know what to make. Nevertheless, here it is:
- Chicken Korma over rice
- Fend for yourself
- Grilled steak with mashed potatoes and grilled veggies
