Canning Mushrooms and Amish Shopping Day
Got up really early this morning because I couldn't sleep so I canned the 6 lbs of mushrooms I got yesterday at Aldi for 49 cents for 8 oz. I got 9 half pints and 4 pints which is pretty good. After turning off the mushrooms we made a trip down to Cuba, IL to take the canning jars to the Amish, picked up a couple of items, got some milk from the dairy and then back home. It has been sunny most of the day which is nice since we've seen so little of it lately. The owners of the bulk food store told us that they are moving back to the Arthur area by next spring and another Amish family hopefully will be buying the store. Also they just had their 13th child in August and she only weighed a little over 3 lbs. She was only in the hospital a week and is up to 6 lbs now. I'm not sure how old she is but she also has grandchildren. I hope that they are able to find a buyer for the store because this is where I get the majority of my bulk food items.
