Eloise learns to can tomato sauce

A couple of years ago on vacation, my daughter Naomi learned how to can tomato sauce from Aunt Jo.
So she decided to try it this year and Eloise wanted to help.  She is listening diligently while Naomi explains to her how it's done.

Look at all those peeled tomatoes!

Now it's her turn. 

"Let's see if I can get a tomato!"
Looks like she got one.

Now it's time for the pureeing and roasting process.  Eloise is learning the word "No" .  She doesn't like where her chair is situated and wants to be up close. We won't move her closer and whining is not allowed.  This is love, all for her own benefit.

"I want to be moved closer so I can see better"
 The roasting is done and Naomi's filling the jars.

 And now there's lots of good home canned tomato sauce.

 Scripture for the day  - 

 Hear, O Israel: The LORD our God is one LORD:
 And thou shalt love the LORD thy God with all thine heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy might.
 And these words, which I command thee this day, shall be in thine heart:
 And thou shalt teach them diligently unto thy children, and shalt talk of them when thou sittest in thine house, and when thou walkest by the way, and when thou liest down, and when thou risest up.
 And thou shalt bind them for a sign upon thine hand, and they shall be as frontlets between thine eyes.
 And thou shalt write them upon the posts of thy house, and on thy gates. 

Deuteronomy 6 : 4-9

  1. What fun! My Older Grandson (20 months) would not have stayed there. He would have got down and moved the chair closer! How do you stop a small child from whining?

  2. oh my goodness, that was so sweet to see Eloise and her auntie cooking in the kitchen. Eloise just needs a matching apron!!!

  3. Next summer Naomi can come over and help me do some! Soooo good.


I love hearing from you. Please feel free to leave a comment.
