Under Contract!

After 4 1/2 long months, we have a contract on our house!  We made the deal yesterday and we are happy with the result.  We certainly didn't get rich off of it, but we will be able to afford to do a couple of things at Hunter's Grove that really need to be done.  Our closing is set for April 22nd!

In case you happened to look at the time stamp on this post and are wondering... caffeine + excitement = insomnia!  ETA: I just looked and there is no time stamp on this template.  I'll just tell you, it's 4:30 AM and I have been awake since 2am.

There is a lot to do in the next few weeks.  I hope to find the time to share it all with you!!

Excalibur 3500

I got a food dehydrator!  I purchased the Excalibur 3500.  It came via UPS yesterday andI tried it out for the first time today!  I didn't have a lot on hand to dry, but I had to put something in it.  I ended up doing 2 Gala apples and 2 Roma tomatoes.

I am amazed at the intensity of the flavors.  The apples are so good.  The tomatoes had to be put away quickly or I would have eaten them ALL!  I think I will make bread with them.  

I am going out to the store tonight to find some more stuff to dry!

PS: I forgot to take photos and by the time I remembered, I had already sampled quite a bit! ;)
