In other news, a new shiny beautiful 22 qt. Pressure canner is now in my battery of tools thanks to my mom!! She even let me have it a week early (my birthday is tomorrow.) Today I made golden vegetable stock in it, then Pressure canned 5 quarts to put away and save. I am so thrilled to be able to can stock now. Hot diggity!
This place had all the web-reputation of a cheesy gold resort, but turned out to be totally wonderful. Great food, lots do do including miles and miles of walking/biking paths, real cows, a few nice pools, fly-fishing lessons and even a tie-dye class! Oh dang!!. Check it out.
