My dad and mom have a pear tree that usually produces quite a bit of fruit. When I visited on Monday, my brother had a bucket of pears picked and ready for me. So this morning, I made pear sauce. This is my second batch for the season. I made 5 1/2 pints.
I put away quit a few jars of applesauce also. I will use most of it when making applesauce cake. I also put quite a few bags of sliced apples in the freezer.
My mom had a recipe for applesauce cake that has always been a big hit. We grew up with it so we were used to it. But it became a favorite of several of the Grandkids. For some reason, mine doesn't seem to taste near as good.
As always the weekend was busy. I spent Saturday and Sunday morning cleaning some. Didn't get as much done as I needed to. We attended Mass in Fort Smith (about 40 miles away) Sunday evening, then had a nice dinner with the kids at the Outback Steak House.
I still haven't made it to the sewing room.
What did you do this weekend?
Happy snipping, stitching, and quilting!
