Thursday, while John and some of the kids were out trying their hands at deep sea fishing, I stopped by a farm and bought Gravenstein apples--my favorite for applesauce. The apples are still sitting on my counter, looking pretty and smelling great. Tomorrow I really need to make applesauce. Or at least by Wednesday, when the canned foods entries are due at the fair.
I knew at the time I signed up for the fair that I hadn't made applesauce yet. I knew that by signing up, I would make myself get on the ball and make applesauce. And yet, here it is Friday night and still no applesauce. I don't know why I have to psych myself up so much before canning; I'm always surprised at how easy and relatively quick the process actually is.
So I'm blogging to the world (or at least to Mom and a few other followers!) to expect photos of the finished project tomorrow. Thanks for joining my little online pep rally. Go team!
