I got up early this morning. Not really because I wanted to, but because Collin is coming this morning which is always a good thing. Everyone loves him! He is so sweet and has the most pleasant personality. My sister just has a doctors appointment so we won't have him all day. We will probably go swimming at my mom's in the afternoon.
I went and did a big monthly shop last this weekend. I spent $75 at Aldi, $25 at the bakery outlet and $185 at Sams. Now, I will have to make a few small trips throughout the month, but that was the bulk of my shopping. I say another $100 for the month. Not too bad for a family of seven.
My brother in law bought me a huge box of tomatoes that I have to do something with this week. He said that it was only $10 and we weighed it and there are 22 pounds in there. I am going to make another batch of salsa since I do have peppers and onions. I will have to get some more cilantro and tomato paste. I will probably peel and chop today and cook and can tomorrow. It is tiring, but in the winter we are always grateful! I guess I will just can the rest of the tomatoes to use in sauce this winter.
Well, I guess I will go. I will let you know how canning goes. I have already done one batch of salsa and 20 quarts of green beans for winter. Some tomatoes will be nice to have.
