Simple Lives Thursday

Summer is wrapping up and the cool air in Iowa has us putting up everything we can now to prepare for harsher weather to come.  I'm busily stocking the freezer so we can eat well once the baby comes, and we've canned a dozen jars of tomatoes so far. I have a great recipe coming up for you later tonight or tomorrow for a sauce you can make now and freeze for the winter, but for now, check out the amazing posters who contribute to Simple Lives Thursday and include your own blog post after the jump!
