In my life this week…
I made my second batch of fresh garden salsa, and the heat was a little more bearable in this batch. My husband and I also attempted our first batch of refrigerator pickles! We made 6 medium sized jars and 2 large jars, and I still have lots of cucumbers left over. I guess that means a second batch of those as well. Actually I want to find a recipe for pickled pepper relish; combine my peppers with the cucumbers for a spicy relish. Anyone have a recipe for that?
In our homeschool this week…
We covered long vowels for the first time, learning to mark them and read them. My son was so excited and ready for a new challenge.
Then, we headed to the Durham Children’s Museum of Science with a group of children from our church. What a fun day! We revisited some favorites and saw a few things for the first time.
We also saw giant cockroaches (live ones), giant beetles, giant centipedes, and other stuff of nightmares. Eesh!
