This and that from far and wide, August 2016

Welcome to Our Sunday Café, we are pleased you stopped by for a visit. Today we are offering a peek at what these bloggers are creating, crafting and enjoying, just a little of this and a little of that, from far and wide!…

Hello, we hope your week is going great on this first day in August. Take a look at what friends and other blogger are cooking up currently or have enjoyed in the past. So much information and recipes from current and older posts on just about every blog, today I am sharing these.....

I have been working hard to find new recipes that match the foods we have in our home. This might seem like a no-brainer, but with the changes in moving to the peninsula, we don't just run to the store for a forgotten ingredient anymore. This cucumber salad looks delicious and uses an easy to keep veggie.

Homemade catsup is one item I would like to master. My husband is a catsup using, eater! This version uses fresh tomatoes from your garden or the farmer's market.

I have a real fondness for potatoes with either rice or pasta, so you can imagine I can't wait to make this vegetable casserole. Fortunately, we have some cooler days on the peninsula, so this won't wait until fall!

If you are new to canning or want to brush up on some great advice, these tips will certainly help. I am very happy that canning is growing in popularity. My own mother canned, I have been canning all my life (off and on, based upon needs and work schedule) and now my daughter cans.

Here is a baking chart that lists the different measures of various baking ingredients, including the dry weight. Now that I am grinding my own flour, using a weight measure makes a lot of sense. That way I will grind only what is needed, as needed.
