It was a busy first week of school. I assumed I’d have some free time, but that worked out for only one day. Did get a lot of canning done, though, with the help of my son. We processed Concord grapes into 40+ pints of jelly and 32 quarts of canned juice.
And he and his wife helped can pears. We’re just getting started on that. The pears are picked but many have to ripen a bit more before being canned. Thanks to our friend the tree trimmer for bringing the bounty over!
Before I give this week’s menu, I want to share how much we enjoyed this recipe last week for chicken quesadillas. It was the first time I made them. Simple to make and everyone really liked them. The avocado sour cream was delicious. Heard some very happy noises while the fam’ ate lunch. I’ve included the avocado sour cream in this week’s menu, too.
Spaghetti with Homemade Sauce
Mexican Mostacolli and Cheese / I plan to mix all the ingredients instead of layering them, and will use half the amount of cheese. And I’ll add a tablespoon of homemade taco seasoning mix.
Saturday ~ Apple Butter Day
Family Dinner with Dad in memory of Mom on her birthday.
I’m providing the birthday cake. I’ll make it a pumpkin cake because my mother loved it (and loved anything to do with her favorite season autumn!).
