"I'm sorry ma'am, but you didn't buy these here." Ah Geez!
Since our peach tree is absolutely laden with peaches, Hubby and I decided that we need to preserve some of these beauties. No. We have never, ever, canned anything before. How hard can it be?
If this is any indication...I'm worried!
We have a big pot (great start), and a scrumptious sounding recipe, we just needed some of the jars & utensils. Jars, no problem. We were having trouble finding some of the other things.
We bought a canning funnel, okay? Then found a canner rack to go in the bottom of the pot, right? Well, it doesn't fit in our pot. Hubby wants to go buy a humoungous pot now. I don't think we need that rack now. Did the pioneers have racks for their pots? Ha! I don't know.
Then we went to another store a few days later and found a utensil set for preserving, put out by the Ball company that makes the jars. No problem, we'll return the rack & funnel, since the set comes with a funnel.
Off to Wallyworld we go this morning.
Hubby: You have the receipt, right?
Me, reaching down to the floorboards underneath the rack & funnel: It was under here.
Hubby: I cleaned out the car yesterday & threw a bunch of crap away.
Me, looking around the car thinking, if you cleaned out the car, you didn't do a very good job: I am not going through the outside garbage can.
If you don't know, when you go inside Walmart and plan to return an item or four, you have to get a sticker of some kind to take over to the return counter. We all laughed because the sticker machine would not produce a sticker for these items. Damn technology. Turns out, we didn't buy it there. hahahahaha! Takes quite a bit to embarass me. No problem, let's go to Target.
To make a really long story short, we didn't buy them there either. I truly have no idea where we got them. I figure we'll run across it eventually.
Anyway, see what I mean...we are so in trouble!
