As of late, I don't really have much of a love for this kitchen of mine. Come thick into the fall, I'm so ready to say goodbye to my canner forever. Some days I feel like my life is spent in the kitchen, making messes. I found these pictures from last month on my camera. Just a couple meals in that all but one or two ingredients were raised/grown on our homestead. It helps to remind me that all this time in the kitchen is good. It's not just making messes.
