I headed to my Dad’s last Saturday for a family reunion. Five of the siblings from his family were there. Another brother was unable to come due to an event he had to attend, and another sister is winding up a five-week world tour with her son, so was unable to come. My dad is on the right.
It was good to see some aunts and uncles I have not seen for a long time. And also fun to catch up with cousins that I haven’t had a chance to talk to for a while.
Spent some time canning this week, too. Our older son and his wife and the grands came over on Wednesday to learn how to use the pressure canner. We canned tomato sauce and peaches. The twins thought the food mill was the most fun they’d had in a long time!
This week, I have about 100 pounds of peaches to can. They are a shade hard yet. I think they’ll be ready tomorrow. Here’s the menu for the week. Tuesday will be shredded beef in the crock pot so we can have sandwiches whenever, as we are canning peaches. I’ll move that up to Wednesday if the peaches aren’t ready on Tuesday.
Roast Beef in the Crock Pot for sandwiches (I use the linked recipe, but put the ingredients in the crock pot instead of using the oven. Too hot to add unnecessary oven heat to the house.)
Coleslaw with Peanuts and Raisins
Sliced Garden Tomatoes and Fresh Cukes
Beef and Broccoli Stir Fry
