Another weekend that disappeared in a *blink*!

Saturday morning: flea market freak show with G-Dog, Emmie and Beege. Saturday afternoon: 5-mile walk with Nonnie at Chickamauga Battlefield. Saturday evening: neighborhood supper club at Emmie's, and then an after-party at O'Heiney's (where we ran into G-Dog's students).

Sunday: morning bike to the Chattanooga Market, and then home to meet up with Emmie for our first attempt at canning 20 lbs. of tomatoes (while G-Dog was out in the yard, creating raised beds for a winter's garden). Our canning session was not quite as successful as we envisioned, but we got some tomato sauce out of the afternoon, and a lot of experience with working with tomatoes!

I made a really basic kugel for dinner, with some curried okra on the side, and it was really nice to be able to get caught up with Emmie while we waited for the tomato sauce to reduce.

An excellent weekend, overall, but largely internet-free, so I've got some catching up to do... see you all on the flipside!!!  :-D
