Sorry for the long absence. We've moved in with my mother for year, to organize and renovate her house so she can stay in it. Cooking has been difficult this summer, and often performed in other people's kitchens. I didn't garden or can. Lots of sandwiches and too many prepared foods. But, I am starting to do things again. Making a big batch of pesto for the freezer today. Hoping to bake banana bread and cookies later tonight. I want to send care packages to a few people.
