Martha Stewart Punch Storage!

I wanted to show you my new Martha Stewart punch storage! Before I had them in these cups from IKEA but decided to buy a few of the really long metal bars from IKEA and store them on the wall and I LOVE IT! It is much easier to see what I have and grab what I want! :) Unfortunately my other punches (EK Success, Fiskars) do not work on this metal bar....does anyone have any other suggestions? I don't have that many so they are now resting in those cups but I would still like a better way to store them!



* By the way you still have a few days to enter my candy is a sticky at the top of my blog! * :)

Mini Meatloaves!

I'm always looking for new recipes to make for my dad and hubby so they have something easy to reheat for lunch while building the house. I found this great mini meatloaf recipe on my pal Becky's blog! Click HERE for the recipe! This was my first time ever making meatloaf and it was super easy and cooked up fast! The guys really enjoyed them and hubby said it was the best meatloaf he has had and I can make them again anytime! :)

What We Bought.....

Some of you had some good guesses on what we bought. Even though it was an antique store they still sell newer items...some are even brand new. I'm not sure how old the item is we bought but it definately isn't vintage as it is in great condition! Here is that item that we HAD to buy!! An All American 941 Pressure Canner! :)

This thing is HUGE! The jar in front is a pint to give you a reference. It has two racks so you can have three tiers of holds 19 quart jars!! This brand is the best of the best here in the USA and retail you pay a pretty penny of 450 dollars!! Yep, you read that right....450 DOLLARS!! We only paid 70 bucks for this bad boy! I was so felt like an episode of American Pickers! LOL! So next year "WE" (hubby wants to can also!) will probably be canning anything and everything we can get our hands on! LOL!
