Last night I made Meceka's Chipotle tomato sauce recipe! Looking fwd to trying it in different recipes!!! Mmmmm!!



I also picked more tomatoes from the garden last night, but there weren't enough to do much with. This might be my last big batch of canning for the year. That's bittersweet!!!

Not much else going on around here. It's an overcast Ohio day! I'm off to read the posts from last night!

Wishing you all a great Friday Eve!!!!


They look delicious!!

Enjoy your day off tomorrow, girl!!

I don't know Luke, but he's friends with several people around here. He went to the nearby college, so he does farm-aid-type concerts here every year.

He asked me to play in his band tonight, but, you know, I had too much going on.


Yeah, right!

I hope y'all have a great evening!
How cool is that!!!!

I think it smells wonderful in that store but with my headaches/migraines I hope it isn't overwhelming for me! I will pop back in later tonight!
I hope everyone is well and has a great day!!!
Good luck today! Hope you love it!!!

Good Morning MMC!!!! It's going to be a warm day here with a high in the low 80's. Just 2 more days of the warm temps hopefully before fall is back!! There is also a chance of rain for the next 4 days. It looks like the strong stuff may hold off until Saturday night now which would be nice. I could still get to the fall festival Saturday morning then. Not much going on here today. My foot has been bugging me for the last couple of weeks so I'm just trying to stay off of it and give it time to heal. I hope everyone is having a GREAT DAY!!!!!!!!!!!
