Using Up

It's been a while since I posted anything regarding the Dark Days Challenge.  Yesterday, breakfast was fresh farm eggs, and organic waffles.

Dinner was a pasta dish using my home canned tomato sauce, frozen (garden) green peppers and dehydrated mushroomsMy home canned, organic applesauce is a wonderful side for breakfast, lunch or dinner (or for baking too).

This week I have had a hankering for iced tea.  I have been making a gallon almost every day.  Mmmm!  

Today, I will be scrambling up 2 dozen eggs, and adding onion and green peppers (from last year's garden), and adding frozen spinach.  This makes it easy for hubby to grab a quick breakfast burrito before he goes to work.

Evening, wind down time, usually involves hot teaI purchased organic, loose leaf tea from a small (privately owned) local business.

I love the crocheted beverage sleeve. What a great idea!

I am looking forward to doing some canning this coming fall. I'm doing all the garden planning, only on paper for the moment, so I'll have the supplies I need when harvest time comes.

I need to do another Dark Days Challenge post myself, while the days are still dark! LOL!!
Supper tonight was scrambled eggs and homemade biscuits because hubby wasn't feeling well.
