Mrs. Freeze

16 Sep

Now that our fridge and freezer are working again, my lovely and loving wife is packing food away for winter like a busy chipmunk. She made a batch of fresh salsa–really good stuff–and froze most of it. It’s a top secret recipe from our friend the real-life nutritionist. (forgive us for the plastic bags–I lost the debate). Jaim’s also been slicing and freezing bunches of bell peppers for a snowy day.

Today she came home with a crate of Colorado peaches with more plans for the freezer (Great Grandma B. has dibbs on a few of them). Grandpa Denny brought a bag full of green beans that’ll get frozen, and we have some hot peppers left too. That means more salsa making this weekend, and plans are to make and freeze a couple batches of tomato sauce too. Our tomatoes are still lagging behind, but they are coming around. We’ll be getting some more from friends and family. Not pictured is the bag of apples with an icy future from my friend in Watertown. Grandma Kelly wants us to come pick a bunch more at her house–those will probably end up in apple sauce. Does the peeling and coring come with that?

    No peeling included with MY apples…but I will help you pick ’em. And I’ll be happy to help you eat the apple pies that I’m sure you will make with them!

    Some bad news for you on the apple pie front…As wonderful as she is, Jaimie doesn’t do apple pies (mostly because she doesn’t like to eat them). Apple crisp, on the other hand–chances are good.
