Too many posts

I have had so much fun posting today. Please click the older posts to see all the fun we have had in the last month.

Avalee, Lincoln, and our neighbor Sarah spent an hour straining my tomatoes. It took all three of them but they did it and had a great time. Sarah would put the tomato in; Lincoln would push it down; Avalee turned the handle.

A couple of tomatoes got Lincoln in the face because he pushed too hard so after a while her learned not to look in the bowl. The kids thought it was pretty funny that some tomatoes would "talk" to them and others would making "farting" noises. They laughed the entire time.

The positive side was it took them so long that some of the water drained out of the tomatoes as they were waiting in the bowl. It was the fastest I have ever cooked down a batch of spaghetti sauce. I think next time I will let the tomatoes sit for a minute after I get them out of the water.
