Preserve Tomatoes, With or without skins, In a flash!
Newsflash: preserving fresh garden tomatoes is waaay easier than you think! Our garden is in full swing and producing lots of Beefsteak, Roma and grape tomatoes. We have tomatoes coming out our ears! No sweat though – preserving tomatoes doesn’t require a day-long, expensive canning process like it used to.
This year I tried hard to shop the kids’ closets for Halloween, but I still wanted them to feel extra special. What kid doesn’t want to dress up and transform into someone completely different on Halloween (and any other day, for that matter)?
This year I was able to create Eve’s Garden Butterfly Fairy costume for just $3, using items in her closet and three Dollar Store accessories!
From her closet and dress up bin, we assembled this from a tutu, a little lace tank, a flower accessory and her floral halo/crown. Then, I picked up a pair of fairy / butterfly wings and some paper butterflies from the Dollar Store. Not shown here: I picked up a butterfly wand glow stick from the Dollar Store for her to carry for fun and safety while trick-or-treating. Don’t have everything you see here? Shop the look:
