My Husband "Subvet" says that when our first son "Sonshine" was born the sun rose on our world, when our second son "Gator" was born the sun laughed and when our daughter "Sugars" was born all the flowers bloomed. That says it all.

thoughts are the seeds, the harvest can either be flowers or weeds. — William

Show and Tell

Kelli is hosting show and tell Friday again

So, here's mine.

This is a money saving tip.

What you are looking at is the inside of the door to our outside freezer. All of those mason jars are full of spaghetti sauce.

Subvet makes up a couple gallons of sauce at a time, then divides it into these quart & pint jars for freezing. He made a double batch this time. You are looking at 4 gallons of sauce, ready and waiting for one of those way too busy to cook days.

It's much cheaper to make your own rather than buy the jarred sauce, plus you can control how much of each ingredient is in it. For example, the recipe says to start with bacon grease...I don't like bacon. So Subvet starts with ground beef, and we have meaty sauce. :-)

I have tomatos from our garden frozen and waiting to be made into sauce. We do it because my husband doesn't like store bought sauce. He's the one that usually makes it here, too.
