And I know what some of you are thinking. “Whoopty-freakin’-doo. I’ve been canning my own applesauce since I was 6 years old.” But allow me to remind you that we are talking about ME, Mary Darcy… Queen of the Undomestic. Also known as She Who Broke Her Finger In The Mixer. Seriously, I never thought canning was in my future.
AND, I didn’t even burn any part of my person, shatter anything, or blow anything up. And all my cans sealed, too. Sure, it took me eight hours to do twenty-something cans, but who’s counting? And okay, my kitchen floor is stickier than a cheap movie theater’s, but I’ll mop it… eventually.
Anyway, I’m so proud of myself. Who knew I had it in me?? I think that Pemberley has awakened my inner housewife. You might be rolling your eyes at that theory, but I’ll have you know I haven’t caught any of my fingers in the KitchenAid since we moved in.
