I haven't canned any but I have dehydrated it. It didn't work too good. I think because I'm still getting use to it. I wonder if frozen zucchini would be good in a smoothie?

Any budy canned zucchini. I do not want to plant it if I have to put it in the freezer. I will make bread.

Sunday I made and canned 10 quarts of spaghetti sauce. I'm unsure what to do this weekend, probably a breakfast casserole for super bowl sunday...The leftovers will be frozen into easy breakfast meals for work.

Getting back to it, "Old Goal" But I have to treat as new, I have been away for a while. Not as much time for posting so may have to drop some teams. But this one will stay for sure. Killed, canned and froze the first of my home grown free range chickens this past weekend. Canned 6 quarts of broth, 8 pints of chicken stew and froze the meat. I have added turkeys and ducks to my flock. Hopefully the meat and egg production will increase this year to the point we will be eating only our birds.

Sounds like fun, Lindam.1!
I made a sweet potato chili recipe that a coworker gave me this past week and froze most of it for a potluck in two weeks. It really tastes more like vegetable soup with beans than chili. Today I baked two loaves of bread and froze one.

My new renter is excited about a garden. Last year with open heart surgery garden was out of the question. Canning is one thing I will get to help her with. She has never made jam so that is on the list. We will have free blackberries. Hopefully Strawberry jam. emoticon She loves cucumbers I want zucchini, tomatoes, onion,etc.

we had a delicious soup today - unidentified but all the veg beginning to look a bit tired in the fridge. The red cabbage cooked with prunes might have been an addition too many as it made the whole thing a rather grey and unappetising colour, but the taste was great. There was cauliflower, cabbage, celeriac, potato, left over frozen peas, rather stringy french beans from the freezer, sweetcorn, carrot and the stalky bit of broccoli - with a bit of stock. Delicious with good home made brown rye bread and cheese.

Ooh, interesting idea! We still have three beauty heart radishes from our last CSA box. I roasted one last night and it really doesn't taste very good. But maybe mixed in with something would mellow it out a little. It's great too that your kids are willing to experiment.

Our new thing is to add some root vegetable into mashed potatoes. Last night, the kids were trying to guess what was in the mashed potatoes that wasn't potato. It was hysterical. They narrowed it down to something white, was is celeriac? No. Was it radishes? No. Finally, the 10 year old announced, "Turnips!" Correct!! :)

Love the idea. I'm Italian so EVERYTHING is made in a Huge pot....
I usually give most of it to the neighbors.
I can make my own ready meals for future use...
So sorry about your wrist.

Well, if your freezer is empty before you can cook again, we all know it won't be because you didn't try!

Seriously, I broke my wrist about 12-14 years ago, and the folks at work were more concerned and helpful than the folks at home. Funny how that can work. I do sincerely hope you are not in a lot of pain.

thanks for your sympathy. i asked dh to make some carrot red pepper soup. his answer was "don't you have enough stuff in the freezer?". maybe in 2 wks i'll be healed enough to hold things with my broken wrist.

This does sound like a great idea! I am going to try it too. It would be nice to know what you are freezing/canning/or however you are putting it by for ideas. We are good with soups, but seem to have lost our imagination for other things since the boys are grown and gone.

Okay, I am game for this. I think it is such an awesome idea and it would be great to have some go-to meals set aside and then I wouldn't have to order in. I will aim for one a week as well :)

Very busy schedule here too. I might have bit off more than I can chew but I'll give it a go. I'm thinking Sunday mornings, if I make a quiche or something for breakfast maybe make an extra one and freeze for breakfst at work.

What a great idea. With my schedule I don't know if I could do one a week but I definately could try for two a month :)

One of my goals for this year is to make and put by a food each week (at least during the cooler months) This week will be Trout Patties. What new goals (if any) have you made this year?
