I made some pumpkin puree this evening to freeze for making pies and mostly pumpkin bread and I thought I’d post a how-to. It’s actually fairly simple to make the puree but I try to do it as easily as possible.
Many of my readers I’m sure are already the homesteading type. As I mentioned in my last post, I have been trying to get really intense on little ways to make or save a little money here and there so we can put it towards our goal of living on the homestead. We have the property, but no job in the area and not a whole lot more than water on the land as of yet. This past summer we put a little money into getting a bunch of trees cleared from our homesite, and we invested in a good Stihl chainsaw. The chainsaw is awesome, I might add – I can still lift it to cut, though I am a bit too weak for my own comfort. But it is a nice powerful saw and still usable for me if I ever had to take over the tree-cutting-down duty from Mr. Hot Stuff.
Something that I wanted to share and maybe it’s just me wanting to put thoughts to paper. I work at a credit union as a lead, which means if there are any big problems with people’s accounts I get to muddle it all out. Given that, and also the fact that I also trade currency on the foreign exchange market, I get a pretty good glimpse of what’s happening financially. And I will tell you – the last few years have been scary. Our credit union has been repossessing a lot of BMWs and Mercedes. People have saddled themselves into $700-$1000/month car payments and are suddenly out of a job. Can you imagine? a $1000/month car payment!
Sorry about the long absence, all my faithful fans 🙂 There was a small IE problem at work and when it was “fixed” for some reason I can’t get blogger to come up, and since that was where I did most of my posting… well.
