Cyber Monday Giveaway of a Christmas Apron from Carolyn's Kitchen!

Happy Holidays Apron Goddesses! Yes, I've come out from retirement for a post this month . . .

Carolyn from Carolyn's Kitchen asked me to host a giveaway for the holidays and I could not refuse. Look at this beauty below. The sparkling assortment of Christmas trees on the fabric are cheerful and bright. This Holiday Sparkle Apron is just the thing to wear while entertaining guests this holiday season.

This apron is built in the classic Carolyn's Kitchen fashion with a heart-shaped pocket and ruffles. These aprons look great on every body type. I think they are universally flattering. I do love my zebra striped apron from Carolyn's Kitchen since it looks great on any occasion . . .

Good Bye, Farewell! Happy Aproning!

Well Apron Goddesses, I can not tell a lie. I can not find the time to keep posting on The Apron Goddesses with my busy life schedule.

While I won't be posting any new material, I will leave the blog up for folks to find aprons made by all the fabulous hand made, sewn in the USA, women owned businesses who I want to support. If an apron maker wants to request an ad with a link, I'd be happy to post. Just send an email with your request. (I am amazed at how many visits The Apron Goddesses garnishes even with very limited posting...)

The biggest overall time constraint for me has been my need to market my newly published children's book called Bingo's Big Adventure and make time for writing the next book in the series. Reviews for Bingo's Big Adventure have been very positive and can be viewed HERE on Amazon.

I am running a book promotion at the Bingo's Big Adventure site too.

Books are discounted through purchase on Paypal. Hardback copies are $2 dollars off cover price at $13.99 and softbacks are $1 dollar off cover price at $7.99. Your purchase supports a women owned business right here in the US. Buy a book for your kids, grand kids or as gifts for the holidays! I will personally sign any books ordered and customize as requested.

Since I find my self trying to balance on that narrow fence that life has provided me.... I thought Bingo's balancing act was an appropriate allusion to my current place in life.

Part of balancing is knowing just when to jump off without hurting one's self....

So that's the end of my tail...

I've Been Busy!

Sweet Pepper Salsa

7 c. chopped tomatoes (about 5 lbs)
3 c. chopped peppers (1 red, 1 yellow, 1 green)
1/2 c. chopped onion
2 cloves garlic
2 tbs. cilantro
1/2 c. vinegar (5% acidity)
2 drops hot pepper sauce

Combine all ingredients in a saucepot. Stir and bring to a boil; then reduce heat and simmer for 10 min. Prepare canning jars as usual. Then ladle salsa into hot jars. Process in a boiling water canner for 15 min. (covering the tops of jars with approximately 1" of water. Yields 3 pints. I double the recipe to can more at a time.

So far I have canned about 7 pints and 10 1/2 pints. It is not at all hot, so if you want hot you will need to add some sort of hot pepper either before or after the processing. Enjoy!
