Well, I am thankful today for God’s provisions in our life through family. We have needed our back room roof fixed because of leaks, and last night God provided the money to get the supplies we need to fix it before winter sets in. My husbands parents offered to buy the supplies, praise God for them. So, we will be busy getting that taken care of.
Okay, I got my 4 pie pumkins baked and pureed, and strained and bagged for the freezer!!! Making my own pumkin puree is saving us lots of money as well. I paid $5.00 for 4 pie pumkins at the Farmers Market, and in Hannaford Grocery Store it is $2.89 per can of 15oz Farmers Market Organic canned pumkin, so I made equivelant to 6 cans which to buy in the store would have been $17.34. I saved $12.34 doing it myself, and got pumkin juice for soups besides!!! I am happy whenever I can save money like that. Saving pumkins is something I have never done before but with the help of another bloggers post: http://localkitchenblog.com/2010/11/02/how-to-make-pumpkin-puree/ I was able to get it done fairly easy. I had bought 4 pie pumkins at a farmers market, and after all is said and done, I was able to store 6 – 15oz pkgs of pumkin and 2 – 2cup pkgs of pumkin juice to use in soups and whatnot… Local Kitchen is a great blog, she has lots of recipes, how to’s complete with pictures and easy to understand.
