That bridge group sounds wonderful. I haven't played for years. I'm sure they will enjoy your lunch.
I took Gidget to the groomer. Now she has pink and burgundy bows in her ears and pink toenails. After we were through there I decided to go over to a produce stand near Packwood. Packwood is about 25 miles south of our house and the produce stand is a few miles further.
I had no one to help me today and the man that works there noticed my distress and asked why I was alone. He told me from now on to pull my car right up to the produce tent.
I got four zucchini, 3 green and 1 yellow, 3 red bell peppers, 2 yellow bell peppers. another sweet pepper, I can't remember its name, but it looks similar to a jalapeño. I also got four beautiful tomatoes, (the last time I got some there they were extremely flavorful) and some apples, a cabbage, 2 ears of corn, and a cantaloupe. Now when I go grocery shopping I will know what I already have in the kitchen I already know I need spinach, sweet potatoes, mushrooms and celery. I like it when I know what I need. This is much better than when I was trying to keep track of what my caregiver was using.
My peaches in the dehydrator are drying nicely and those in the oven are a bit behind. Someone turned off the oven. I caught it soon enough that I won't loose those peaches. I want to get some pears to dry too. I should get a case of apples too, Carol likes my apple butter.
After reading the article that said to preserve all the food we can I am really getting with it. I know the prices will be going up. Today I heard on Public Radio that the Chinese get most of their corn and soy from the US. That could pose a further problem for those of us who like to eat. I just wish I'd been in the space to get started earlier on preserving everything that passes by me.
I'll talk with you all later,
