Carrots Coming Out My Ears & A Giveaway To Tell You About!

but not from the garden.

I stopped at the local grocers this weekend and found 2 lb. bags of organic carrots for 25 cents.  They had received a double order and needed to move them quickly.  Being the upstanding penny pinching gardener who’s carrots did not grow this year, I felt it was my duty to help them out.

I got a few looks when I asked the stock guy (who was blocking the display) if he could hand me a few bags….then a few more, and a few more. He would only let me take 10 bags the carrot miser!

I almost felt guilty checking out as that price was a steal!

Right now those carrots are chopped and sliced and the dehydrator is happily humming

They are going to so good in soups and stew this winter.

I’m not sure what I like best, the rhythm of the pressure cooker rumbling, the bubbling of the canner or the hum of the dehydrator.  I believe it’s a 3 way tie.

Which is your favorite sound?

Be sure and visit my friend Sandy over at Oklahoma Transient.It’s a blog I’ve recently found and really enjoy.  I’ve learned quite a few tips and tricks from her pages.  But, this week she is sponsoring a giveaway!  Be sure and pop over, say hi and enter. 



  1. Katie,
    Wow, now that's a deal on carrots!
    Carrots are a favorite vegetable in this house :-)

    I like the sound of the pressure cooker, the water bath and the dehydrator at the same time....wooohooo.....

    Thank you for posting the Buck 160 Smidgen Knife Give - Away on your blog my friend.

    Have a great day,
    Sandy, Oklahoma Transient

  2. As far as canning noises go, they all have the sound of satisfaction to me! Good question....

  3. What a steal! I love the sound of popping canning jars. LOL
