Weekly Goal: 10/20/219

           I'm still 'fall cleaning' but wanted to get our goals post done …

 It’s the beginning of a new week and time for our Just One Goal check-in … 
What was your 'one' goal for last week?

Did you meet it? Tell us if you did or didn't, we get encouragement both ways.

What is your 'one' goal for this week? 

Last week my goal was to finish the last of the apples we purchased a few weeks ago … and I did it!




I made an apple pie and then dehydrated the rest of them.  I must confess that my favorite 'preserved' way to eat apples is dried!  They are delicious.  The final count for dehydrated apples is 3 half-gallons and 8 quarts, that's a lot of snack food!!!  I also canned 27 quarts of applesauce.  My apple preserving is finished for 2019!

My 'just one' goal for this week is to finish organizing and inventorying my pantry.

What about you, how did you do with your 'just one' goal?

What is your 'just one' goal for this week?

  1. I had a ham to breakdown into useable quantities for us. I now have a gallon and a half of diced ham and a bag of slices on the freezer. The ham bone was also frozen for later. I saw recipe for frozen shredded potatoes for hashbrowns on Simply Recipes. We like tiny diced potatoes instead of shredded so I did a sheet pan full of those as a trial. Thank goodness for my chopper! I dried them in my salad spinner. I hope these work well so that I can put up extras this way since we don't like them canned.

    This week our goal is to get everything done so that we can leave for the lake house Friday morning for 10 days.

    1. Lana, I use my chopper a lot too! We do the same thing when we buy a ham, it's way too much for us to eat in one or two sittings so we preserve it and enjoy it for several meals in the future. Enjoy your vacation!

  2. I, too, was able to finish preserving the last of the 2 bushels of apples we bought, plus an additional bag full I received free from my work. I canned up 6 quarts and 1 pint of applesause (DD's favourite way of eating preserved apples). I also placed a not quite full quart jar of applesauce in the fridge to use right away. I didn't want to run the canner for just 1 jar. So with this job completed, I have now finished all the canning I am doing for this far. I had one other thing I was going to try. But, I've run out of canning jars, so will maybe try making home canned maple baked beans at a later date.

    The only other "preserving" that I have left on my list is cooking up the 2 pie pumpkins from our garden. We've decided to wait until after Halloween, so we can use them as part of our decorations. Fine by me, as I'm ready for a break from preserving!

    This week, I believe our plan is to do some fall cleaning. The living room/dining room area, as well as the kitchen, need cleaning after all that steam from preserving. I have collected bean seeds from the garden and have them drying right now. Once they are ready, I will package them up and put away the seeds until next spring. We need to buy some straw and place it over the strawberry plants in the raised garden bed for winter. Not sure if that will get done this week or not, but it's on the list. Also need to sort through winter and summer clothing, putting away some, getting other items out ready for use and hoping to purge a few clothing items along the way. Again, not sure if that will get done this week or not, but it's on the list, too. so we'll see how much gets done, considering I will be working 3 days this week!

    1. Rhonda, it does feel good to have a break from preserving for a little while doesn't it? Mine and your upcoming weeks are very similar! I hope you get a lot accomplished!

  3. I managed to get the upstairs and downstairs wood floors cleaned as planned. Still basking in the joy of that! LOL! This week I may start organizing for Christmas and do, or start, my Christmas cards. I send about 100.

  4. My goal for last week was to put the bags of onion pieces and skins that were in the freezer and cook them in the slow cooker to make onion broth. I let it cook overnight and pressure canned 4 qts. of broth. This week my goal is to finish cleaning up the garden beds, finish digging up the sweet potatoes and hopefully my garlic order will arrive tomorrow and I can plant garlic Wed.

  5. I actually had a 3 part goal and am happy to say I got it done. One was to clean and oil and adjust my sewing machine,2 to organize all my fabric, and 3 to get all the squares cut out for a patchwork quilt I've been wanting to make for my 36 year old son. I'm not talented enough to make the real fancy ones but I think he will love it.
