Just an update

Yesterday I took the entire fridge apart and cleaned it. Boy oh boy does it sparkle now. I do that at least once a year. I do spot cleaning as needed but the deep down cleaning, yep that’s a once a year job. I should have taken pictures but didn’t think about it until right now. As for right now, I am waiting for the repairman to come. It is the 12-5 waiting game. Grim, even though he is at work is anxiously waiting to go grocery shopping tonight. We don’t need much, milk, eggs, lunchmeat, I might even pick up some of the Hebrew national hotdogs. Teenage monster has never been a fan of hotdogs but those she likes. I like the fact that they have nothing in them. We need to move ever thing out of the mini-fridge to the big one once it is fixed.

I have been cleaning all day. I thought I did enough of that before we left to go camping. But alas it is a never ending job. I have a ton of produce to put up once my kitchen is put back together. I completely missed out on black and blue berries & raspberries. I need to get all the tomatoes, corn, peppers, potatoes, squash, pumpkin and apples. That way the pantry will be rounded out nicely. So far I have gotten, strawberries, peaches, nectarines, cherries, apricots put up into jams and jellies. I blanched & froze the sugar peas. I dehydrated zucchini, summer squash, eggplant, cucumbers and celery.

Even though fall is still like a month away as far as the calendar goes, I’m thinking mother nature has different plans.
