The hard part about making the applesauce was that we started at 6:30pm. Teri had gone to Waterville, WA, the day before (Google it if you don't know where it is) to get free apples from her aunts house. She brought back MANY! We didn't finish until about 11pm. I was wiped out because I'd been at work at work earlier in the day...and relaxation didn't seem to come as quickly as I'd hoped. But--I was glad I was able to participate. Unfortunately, the apples boiled over the pot on my stove for 3 hours---and made a nasty burn around the burner. I still haven't finished cleaning it yet.
After the apples boil...with cores and all...I took them upstairs to Teri's part of the house and she and Julia would process them and get them all mushed up, in jars, and in pots of boiling water to seal. In the end--there where about 51 jars of applesauce. Today, I just found a home for them until we need them (on-top of the high cabinets).
Then on Thursday night, I had the opportunity to go to the Law Advocates Dinner and Auction. Buri Funston Mumford, PLLC bought a table and I was invited to attend. It was fun to dress up and be in a place with table cloths, good food, and all the people from the office in a new setting.
We had table 6! Let me introduce you to my fellow table sitters of that evening.
