I decided to take a little blog vacation last week, but I'm back now. We didn't go anywhere, but I had Caleb home all week and Mickael home for part of the week. It ended up being a really nice week with just the right amount of busy combined with just the right amount of lazy. No one was ready for this morning when it came around. One of the things I did last week (that I actually got pictures of) was make cranberry sauce. I used three pounds of cranberries, so I had enough sauce for Thanksgiving and Christmas this year as well as having enough to can up and process for future cranberry necessary holidays, AND I have some for gifts!
If you've never had homemade cranberry sauce, you're missing out. It's so much better than the canned stuff and it's fun to make. When you cook the cranberries, they actually pop! I'm amused by popping food, don't judge. When the sauce is all done, it's the color of good rubies. I love that color. This is the time of year that I wander around putting cranberry sauce on everything that sits still. I tell myself it's not that bad because everyone knows cranberries are loaded with Vitamin C, so really I'm just preventing all of the nasty viruses that are trying to get me at this time of year, right?
