I had a ball…got home from breakfast just in time for lunch! Time flies when I’m with Swampie…and don’t let her self-effacing discussion of her conversational skills fool you – when Swampie talks about caring for a quadriplegic sheep, it’s going to be the most interesting thing you’ll hear all day!
The brilliance of dehydrating food is Duffy’s idea. The pre-packaged ones – even the best of them – are heavy, very expensive, and NEVER as good as home-cooking, or even canned or prepared food from your favorite restaurant! I’ve done canned corned beef hash (Duffy sez you might want to eat it in the dark, but it TASTES good), homemade slow-cooker chicken taco rice, Wendy’s chili, and Chipotle’s burrito bowl with no cheese, no sour cream and no lettuce. They were all good!
I love going to see SwampWoman. Best part of my week. Gave me incentive to get out and mow this morning, when it was only mid-80s, not 90F!
Now, I need a shower. Thanks for stopping by!
KC (of Pixie Place II), her granddaughter, and I met for breakfast and a ceremonial exchange of eggs and dehydrated spaghetti yesterday. She gave me money, too, and I was so busily gabbing (imagine that!) that I forgot to give her change. I intended to hand her change over to her as I paid my tab, but I absent-mindedly stuffed it in my wallet because the conversation was so scintillating. (Hunh. The school kids say that NOBODY ever uses words like that in real life. So there.)
KC dehydrates food like spaghetti and meatballs for taking on camping trips. It has never occurred to me to dehydrate complete meals. I suppose it is because SwampMan’s knee problems prevent us from going anywhere in which actual walking is required, so we are not hiking into remote areas where the only food is that which we carry on our back…
