Living room repairs officially start.....

The sunrise is slowly moving in the direction of winter.

I decided to freeze more tomatoes.  I can make a fresh spaghetti sauce or can pizza sauce over winter.  It will save me some time to work on the living room.  I sent messages to the younger two, that i need there boxes of stuff out of the living room, and for one to clear her Christmas stuff out of the garage.  I'm hoping they arrive within the week.

Beautiful wild flowers bloomed in the water trough this year.

Tomatoes kept me in slow motion on getting the living room cleared, but in order to do that, I have to clear off a table in our (yes) bedroom.  It was for my sewing machine.  When Mom passed her recipes landed on that table.  I am clearing it off to move upstairs for my crafting table.  I started to look at some of the recipes and noticed some are definitely different.

Hm.  Not sure I'd try this one, but different.  I am missing Mom a lot right now going thru the recipes.

I was looking at the ingredients, intriguing. What is the first one? Cacao? Tempting to try it :-)

The first is Karo - corn syrup. If I try it myself, I would use organic corn syrup, but not sure how it tastes like a caramel without butter.

that recipe looks different but it must be good.

Hope your kids pick up their boxes this week... mine just take their sweet time ;) ah children!
