Busy kitchen day, pfffff!

Goodmorning everybody!

Wednesday we did go to the market, as Heidi phoned me, that she couldn't make it, Jan and I went there in the afternoon.
It was nice weather and oh boy, we came back with some stuff!
And we also saw some trousers for Jan, very nice ones and very low priced, and I also saw a couple of fantastic sweaters for him.
So he might go there next week and buy himself the trousers and hopefully one or two warm sweaters, then he is "ready"for the winter and longer.

But we went there for the veggies and we did buy all kinds. We came home with a red cabbage, about 2 kilo's of brussels sprouts, two big portions of carrots, a couple of leak stems, about 5 red paprika's(the long one, they are sweeter), a kilo of apples, kilo of bananaa, kilo of onions.
All this for 1 euro each! Now thats a lot cheaper than in the supermarkets, believe me! and all fresh!
So yesterday I spent several hours in the kitchen, chopping it all and giving it a quick cook, just to boiling point, leveing it there for a minute and then out of the water.
While one was getting boiled, I was busy chopping the other etc.
In between I even found time to prepare dinner for the evening. Then it all had to cool down, then I made portions of it and somehow managed to get it all in the freezer.
We calculated that we have for about 3 weeks veggies now.
It is some work, preparing it all for the freezer, but it really pays off.

Leak isn;t showing the last couple of days, it is raining(at least at the moment) so we will have to keep an eye on the spot, and as soon as it might start we will have to call our neighbour. It will be easier to determine from where it actually comes.

Jan is working this morning so that gives me opportunity to do a bit vacuum cleaning and may be I will do some ironing too. But after the busy day I had yesterday, I think I won;t do all too much LOL.

Before going to the freebies, I have to tell you that Linda has made two marvellous quickpages with the Autumn Brings beauty kit.

Now the freebies. I've made you another photo album, of which I hope you can really use it. It's made with a different page size, this time I've made them 8 x 6 inches.
The photoalbum is made with the "Calm Before the Storm"kit and also the clusters from Arlene.I have a preview of the whole album and a detailed preview of two pages and the fron - and back cover.

Dwonload Photoalbum  HERE

And from Arlene I have some marvellous wordart she made for Autumn! And there is a surprise
wordart in it for you too, it's not showing on the preview!
Have some fun with it.

Still a bit gloomy outside, so I think I stick to the computer for a little while longer and then get busy.
Have a tremendous weekend!

Thank you so much for all these beautiful gifts!! I'm always wondering how your next kit will be, and what Arlene will create with them, and everytime when I'm in front of my computer I just say "waouh"...! But today, it's more than this, LOL!
This is really beautiful!
Have a tremendous weekend too!

Good morning Kyra:)
WOW..You sure were busy getting your veggies ready.:) I am not sure about the brussel sprouts though. I have never liked them. Maybe it's the way they were cooked..but it sure turned me off of them.LOL We had a friend of my Mom's who gave us some apples a couple of days ago. More than we could eat before they go bad. I made an apple crisp for Jim and the kids. Then made one for myself using Splenda.(sugar substitute) for myself.They all raved over theirs and mine was wonderful too.:) Got the recipe online!! The hardest part was peeling,coring, and slicing the apples.:)Worth every moment of that.LOL
Thanks so much for sharing your gorgeous bb album. I LOVE IT!:)
Hope you have a WONDERFUL weekend my friend and stay dry!! Be sure to take photos of the leak so you will have something to prove your mess.:)

I left a message yesterday, but Google ate it, so I'm back. You certainly have been quite busy. My daughter does a lot of canning of veggies and fruits too.

It almost feels like winter here. During the night it was in the mid 30's F. Brrrrr.

You have a wonderful day. Hugs, Edna B.

Beautiful kit, Kyra, and I love the new size. You got a good head start on the veggies. I hadn't thought of freezing the cabbage after blanching it. I've always put it up in jars. Must try your method. Always love reading your blog and, of course, getting your beautiful work. Blessings, Handmaiden Dotty
