We all Get Pickled on Saturdays

 Woke up late, 5:30am, haven't done that for awhile. In bed at 10pm so that's 7 1/2 hrs in one stretch (less 20 trips to the bathroom), wow, what a  difference from 2 weeks ago. I was getting close to considering using my sleep apnea machine to ensure a nights sleep, now I can try and sell it again (I had it up for $800,  I'll drop it to $100)

Being Saturday and being on a diet, and Millie wanting to make some mustard pickles, we thought we would go down to check out Brampton's Farmers Market. We bought lots of field cucumbers, raspberries, more tomatoes (not as good as we grow) and something we hadn't seen before, Romano Beans, like lima beans only round and white, and very tasty raw even.

It was still only 9:30 so we headed over to the Airport Rd Flea market. We drove through and around Malton because they were still not open.. Got a tea at Tim Horton's but didn't go in as it would be too tempting, were are only human,

Bought a backpack at the market for $15, part of my diet plan.

Millie bought a new purse, finally, before the other one fell apart.

 We were going to buy a large cooking pot, and in hindsight maybe we should have, but decided instead to buy a slow cooker for $25 (we had one but gave it away because we didn't use it, now we buy another one) Then 5 bootleg movies for $20, none that we were desperate to see, but something to watch on a cold night.

We had the fun of cutting up cauliflower, onions, peppers, and cucumbers until my arm fell off. Then we decided we needed a bigger pot, so I went to Canadian Tire and bought one you can cook a small moose in. $80 for a cheap aluminum one (who buys pots at Crappy Tire), but now we are set up for the rest of our lives in the world of canning ( wanna rent a huge pot? ) Millie made the brine for the mix and set it out to marinate overnight. I started cutting again  for today's cabbage soup mix, but in the new slow cooker. Set it for 10 hours on low. Was a little concerned over the heat coming from it, so I moved it onto the stove   

 

A banana for breakfast, numerous bowls of cabbage soup, jello with peaches, plus Mille gave up on a can of tuna salad, so I finished it off
