Wes and I were home together today. He pulled the stool up to the counter all by himself, and he put each carrot into the lentil soup pot, saying "yeah!" after each one. After that he put in the lentils, one scoop at a time. And THEN we decided to make a jar of pickles ( no canning, just to keep in the fridge). We had cucumbers and fresh dill from the CSA that needed to be used so, voila! The pickles were great fun too.
