Jack has been picking out his own clothes lately. Today he wanted to be Turtleman, so he found the camo pants and black shirt that I had to cut the sleeves out of. He was pretty upset it had writing on it. We thought it was pretty funny he looked like a redneck, but his shirt said I <3 NYC.
Who's Turtleman? Shame on you! Click here
|Lola Kate loves to drive, she pretty much pitched a fit until Ben |
took her so she could drive, which is not easy while you are combining
|But she loves it|
Gave him a mixing bowl with a little water and let him go to town -
He loved it!
This is the second time I have ever helped to make sauerkraut. I am going to share the way we make it - just a heads up, there is probably an easier way to do this, but this is how we do it -
Step 1 :) Grow your cabbage
Okay, the last time we did this, we used a cabbage cutter (kind of like an old-fashioned mandolin). We decided that was for the birds, so we used the food processor, which takes no-time...
|Nice shirt, mom|
|Chop and process|
|add salt, mix, and let set|
|This is my mamaw Pruett's old butter churn|
|Add all the cabbage to the churn, packing it down as you go. |
It should have a little foamy water coming to the top...
|War Eagle! :)|
|Mom promises me she read somewhere that you are supposed to use|
a wooden spoon to pack it down???
|So I did|
