Thankful Thursday and a whole lot more
This week we got some good news about finances. Remember me mentioning that all the tax changes, plus insurance going up...our paycheck would be $160 a month less??
DH's annual raise was more than expected! The amount restored the $160 that was lost, plus about $40 more! God is good; always!
Remember our 50lb bag of potatoes? No, this isn't the whole bag=), it's 10 lbs....or it was. After peeling, the weight was 10 lbs, after dehydrating, each jar weighs 1.14 lbs. I didn't weigh the empy jar, but we can safely say there is 4 lbs. of water in every 5lbs of potatoes. We measured and weighed throughout the whole process. I was thrilled when 5 lbs perfectly filled a quart jar---because we make 5lbs. at a time. At a later date, we soak, boil and mash.
