Rarely does a day go by when I’m not going in a dozen directions and I think about the book “If You Give A Mouse A Cookie”. It seems that one thing leads to another and first thing you know, I have half a dozen or more projects going on.
This morning I planned to finish canning the beef roasts in the fridge but then decided to finish the chicken because it had a closer “use by” date. I started getting the chicken ready to can; then on a break I was reading Facebook and my cousin sent me the recipe she uses for meat pies, so I decided to make the meat pies for our meal. While getting the ground beef and ground pork out of the freezer, I saw a bag of frozen cranberries and remembered I wanted to ferment some cranberry sauce so I brought the cranberries back to the kitchen. Then, I realized I don’t have any whey to use for the fermenting starter so I went back to the shop fridge and got milk and got yogurt started in the Instant Pot.
Then . . where was I? Oh, yes . . making meat pies!
Finished the meat pies. There was the leftover pie crust dough so I decided to make fried peach pies.
Back to canning . . I did get the chicken finished and now all the chicken that we bought . . about 50 pounds of it . . is canned. It took a couple of days to get it done but it’s done and that’s what matters.

Here it is almost 7 p.m., and I’m just fixing to start knitting for the first time today.
That sounds exhausting! But you accomplished so much…enjoy your knitting time! Do you have a favorite yogurt recipe for the instant pot? I don’t like it, but thought I’d try to make it since hubby eats it every day.

LOL – Sounds like me when I get started on a project! I know how it is – one thing leads to another!
Tonight was a simple Mexican cornbread casserole – meat mix under a jalapeno cheese cornbread baked in an iron skillet. One of my favorite easy meals. I cook the meat mixture in the skillet, add a layer of cheese, spread the jalapeno cheese cornbread on top, and bake. Then I top it with a little more cheese. The meat mixture is always different because I just throw together what we have on hand. YUM!
I should be canning like you, but our granddaughter is visiting and there doesn’t seem to be much of any time for anything but her!
Fried peach pies………….oh yum…….

If you’ve canned chicken and chinese chicken and apple pork and soup and, and, and … I don’t think you need any more right away!

You work too hard, but it will pay off in the end!
