I'm off my butt to cook; got another 4 bags of apples to deal with.: Night Mamas!

I was mostly worried about food poisoning. It turned out to be a moot pont this time; I made it all into apple butter and by the time everyone got done 'tasting':there were only 6 jars left. So I just froze them instead. I think I will can the sauce though, so...

Yay another nightcrawler thread! Present.: I was afraid the new baby would be a day child and I'd have to attempt to drag the 7yo to the light side. :But we got lucky; newcritter fits right in. What's everyone up to tonight?
I'm new at canning so this might be a stupid question Can I put applesauce and apple butter in jars tonight and either refrigerate or leave out, then process them tomorrow? Or do the jars need to be filled right before I can them? I'd rather not get up at 4am if I can avoid it! TIA.
I'm shamelessly stealing our costume from a MDC mamma. Dd will be a bat and I'm going as the sky with glowing stars glued to black clothes and my starry sky sling.: Before that we were considering pirates with the baby as a parrot.

Aww that's sweet..tell her to come over here and play with my Mom; I'll even throw in a cute baby to hold. Ya I had a hard time finding gas today...
Dh and I can't share blankets, but I always put the baby in a sleep sack or warm pjs and laid her on top of my quilt.

I was going to buy them all anyway but I didn't argue with him.
