Domestic goddess or just crazy?!

Every once in a while, I decide that my life isn't crazy enough with all that I have going on (3 church callings, volunteering at school, sewing dresses, remodeling the house, church sports, kids sports, etc.) and I decide that I should be a good mormon wife/mother and do a bunch of canning.  So, this is what I have done:

TOMATOES (18 pints)












PEACHES (21 quarts)















BLACK RASPBERRY JAM (9 pints)














PASTA (26 cans/approx. 75 lbs)

(I canned the pasta with Jen & Marcie...some of the cans have already been taken home...it was a lot of pasta, baby!)


CHICKEN (14 quarts & 18 pints)














And finally, APPLESAUCE & APPLE PIE FILLING (14 quarts)















I don't know.  What do you think...Domestic goddess or just plain CRAZY!!!

CRAZY!! but you're my idol. Good job. I know where to come if I'm in a pickle....did you do pickles?

Jen said...

So impressive!!!You're the expert it looks like!

Lynette said...

Far from impressive and no, I don't do pickles!

Goddess! I will live my canning life vicariously through you.

I would say that having the large storage room that you do is also impressive!

I say both crazy and the domestic goddess... :) You are an inspiration, but it makes me tired just looking at your pictures. Maybe another year you can inspire me to actually do something about it instead of just being inspired.

Good job you show off. I definitely decided to take this year off ffrom canning and I didn't miss it. But I love all the different colored jars in my pantry - I will miss that.
