Domestic Queen

I was the total domestic queen today — where’s my blue ribbon? I wrote in the morning and then did the 30 minute gardener routine and then I spent hours on kitchen projects. I cleaned out the various spices and made a Penzey’s list. I also cleaned out the cupboards and threw out old stuff. I processed the last of my tomatoes into two big jugs of pasta sauce. I made a big bucket of cran-applesauce and stuck half in the freezer. I made an apple pie and tried a new crust recipe and still came out with crumbling pastry. I can’t figure out what I’m doing wrong. I also cleaned out the fridge and made a jar of salsa verde with the tomatillos. I’ve used my extra hour well.
