i warned you guys! pretty silly i am. so anywho. we canned twice over the past two weeks. the first week was really fun, because mom me and larissa worked together. this past time was fun...not really fun like the first week. mostly cause mom wasnt there. i was surprised that it wasnt lame like i always imagined it would be. who knew! we canned oats, wheat, rice, black beans, sugar, dry milk, apple slices, macaroni, potato flakes and spaghetti. i didnt personally purchase all of that stuff, but its nice to get started with our years supply.
