We canned and canned and canned. 14 jars of peaches in syrup, 7 jars of peach sweet and spicy salsa, 10 jars of regular salsa and 5 jars of pickled red onions. We worked with friends and it was a really fun day. Here are my attempts at food bloggery photos.
We also brewed a batch of beer for Alex and Amber's wedding in October. Alex was the best man in our wedding, and he and Willie were roommates for years. We are so glad he and Amber are together-they are great for each other. And Amber and I have a lot in common because she is also a teacher. Here are our brewing pics:
And the last cool foody thing we did this weekend was use my birthday paella! Ever since I studied in Salamanca in 2006, I have wanted to make a real paella. For my birthday Willie got me the pan, the rice and the chorizo, which is no mean feat when you live in Yakima. We had a bunch of friends over and feasted...a perfect end to a great weekend!
