I made fig preserves before we left for Las Vegas. I also made applesauce and pear sauce, using the KitchenAid strainer attachment, for the first time with fruit, and froze them to make fruit butter when we got back from vacation. We have so few pears that I put them with the apples. Recipe
I picked a basket of apples on Saturday. We saw a deer next to the tree, in the fenced yard the next day. Good thing I got the apples. I had enough for 5 quart jars of apple pie filling and maybe another pint.
Although we tried not to touch anything in the minibar, I had to have the cheese straws. They were $12.97 with tax. DH was yelling at me to close it before we got charged when I turned to get the phone for this photo. We actually had a mini Keurig machine-K cups were $12.97 for 3 or 4. Darn, we could have packed some.
