My husband and I completed our hunters safety course this evening in a sportsman type store. After we received our certification, we took advantage of the large store and v-lined for the camping and grilling section. The hubs has a bbq/smoker team so we always make a point to check out the goods. I on the other hand check out the stainless steel dutch ovens and the outdoor cooking supplies.
Tonight, my husband called me over to a shelf that apparently I absolutely had to see. What he saw made me gasp. My jaw literally dropped to the ground as I wrapped my arms around my next must have. The largest stock pot that I have ever seen was sitting on the shelf just waiting for me to take it home. It was 100 quart stock pot that would take up at the minimum 2 burners on my stove.
All I could think of is how many tomatoes at once I could fit into it and process. Having 138 tomato plants makes you think of these things you know. I also thought of how much soup I could make for my friends and family. All of the sweet corn I can blanch. Oh the opportunities!
In attempt to gain size perspective, I had to have the hubs help me out. Look how large the lid is! Oh, this is definitely on my wish list. Of course I need to find a place to store it in the off season and I have to make sure it will fit on my stove but wow. I think it will be somewhere in my house in the near future.
I am a busy mother of two who doesn't have time to check the PH balance of my soil. I believe in try, try again. If it doesn't work the first time, there is always tomorrow. I love passing on what I have learned as well as the fruits of my labor.
