Our 4th of July trip is over and we're getting back into our routine. That is always the hardest part for me after a trip. I will post about the trip soon but first I wanted to share something I did the night before we left. It was CRAZY busy trying to get ready to leave and part of it (well...probably all of it) was my own fault. I was the one who decided to go strawberry picking for FHE (family home evening) two nights before we left, and it was me who decided we needed 2 flats of them. So the whole day of canning was my fault too. I wouldn't have been able to pull it off if it weren't for my good friend who volunteered to take the kids for me after seeing my stressed out facebook post. Thanks Nicole!
I started by washing all the strawberries in a sink full of water and one by one cutting off the tops to throw into my big mixing bowl.
