I took the opportunity to finish up the last of my canning for the 2012 season.
I made a batch of apple jelly from the skins and cores of the apples I used to make applesauce.
Behold my 2012 canning bounty!
Not too shabby.
We have pickled peppers, salsa, strawberry jam, blueberry jam, peach jam, applesauce (chunky and smooth), the aforementioned apple jelly, and caramel apple jam. Oh and a can of dried corn.
Of course Moochie's preschool has gone peanut free, so gone are the days where he'll eat PB&J in his lunch. Bummer.
Not that it matters right now anyway...Moochie's home today with me (and Baby Sister) because he's had a reaction to something he ate, in the air, something...
This is from Sunday. He actually looks good in this picture. Right now he's sporting swollen eyes and that rash all over his body.
(No, it's not poison ivy; there's been no fever; no he hasn't been outside; no he hasn't eaten anything new; no I haven't changed my laundry detergent....)
The doctor says he's not contagious, but I can't send him to school like that. And the Benadryl isn't really working.
I just hope he doesn't mind that I can't come to his Christmas program now, between burning it all for maternity leave and rash patrol.
