Call me Slacker

I did none of the things I claimed I was going to do yesterday. There was no time. I broke out the new food dehydrator that alrescate sent me. This thing is great!

So I'm easily amused, some people would kill for that.

This one is nothing like my old one. My old one took almost all day to dry tomato slices. Every 30 minutes I would have to turn the screens to make sure it dried evenly. If I didn't, one side would burn and the other side would still be wet.

The new one dried tomato slices in 2 hours. 2 HOURS! I didn't have to turn the screens. It has settings so you decided how hot it needs to be. And it came with instructions. Instructions people!

It also came with a small screen so my herbs wouldn't fall into the motor, and this, this is the best part, it came with a insert that you can make fruit leather on!

I knew the dehydrator was coming. But see in the last 10. . . well, it's been more like 14 years, I have learned to deal without. My last dehydrator was a gift from my in-laws. Something they bought at on auction. Food dehydrators are not on our essentials list, as we can use the oven in it's stead. So this gift from alrescate was much more than I expected. I felt like was 5 years old and it was Christmas morning. My husband even giggled at me when I was enthusiastically telling him and showing him all the details. He thanks you alrescate and sends his love as well. He also agrees that we should send you our thanks, and I know the best way how.

In other news that can be filed under, you’re an idiot Phelan;

I went to the feed store and was looking at egg incubators. They had them for $40 USD a piece. One was boasting about all this extras it had. I picked the cheaper one that had an egg turner, as the other one couldn't boast of that. {It was $5 USD cheaper} I brought it home, showed my proud-to-be-my-husband. and took it out of the box. You can see where this is going. All it was, was the automatic egg turner. ~sigh~ Luckily my husband told me it was ok, and we would by the set-up in pieces, just like we do most things. Silly me.

Oh no! You poor thing! That's so cute. :-) Sounds like something I would have done.
