This has been the craziest day with blogger. It would let me post a new post as usual. Just finally got into dashboard and looks like it could be a go. Day late but I guess better than nothing. I started uploading pictures last night and it was so slow I went to bed and left it loading.
Have been a bit busy this week with the harvest starting to come in with a little more produce. Also with my personal goal of low cost eating with high end results. This week 16-20 raw shrimp was on sale for $5.99 a pound which is $3 less than the regular price so got 4 pounds. I repackage then into individual portions by wrapping them in waxed paper so the tails won't pierce the bag.
Ground beef was also on sale this week for $2.49 a pound which is over a $1 off regular price so I spent quite a bit of time making burgers, repackaging in meal size portions and also make 2 batches of meatballs. All are now nicely vacuum sealed and in the freezer. Actually bought over 18 pounds.
Then I did something that wasn't so wise. I bought a big bag of corn to freeze. There were 50 ears in the bag. Haven't done corn in a long time and have decided it wasn't worth the time and cost as I could have bought frozen or canned corn cheaper.
First had to get out the big guns to blanch the corn.
Then the set up for cutting it all off the cob.
5 more quarts of dill pickles
3 quarts of crock deli dills. I did buy the cucumber to make these since my small picklers didn't germinate.
All in all it was a good week.
