Finally eating the old, dry crumbs.

We have had a package of dehydrated camping food in the cupboard for over a year. Fortunately, this stuff is ready for the apocalypse, so Lloyd decided to have it for lunch.

Lloyd followed the directions to the letter.

Ok, technically he just opened the envelope. I measured and boiled the water. He remembered to take out the oxygen absorber. Yeah, what?

Boil boil boil. Pour pour pour.

Soak soak soak.

You have to seal it up first, but that’s not as good of a photo. After it has hydrated, eat up, bud.

Lloyd’s review: “The stew was adequate. I would eat it again if I was camping, or if it was some time after the zombie apocalypse or maybe the zombie calypso.”

    We have eaten many of those over the years… camping and on hikes! Neat to see someone else do this! They’re way better after you’ve walked your legs off for miles and are starving. Ha

    It looks ok for eating. Though I think I might like to have some crackers with it.

Weekend wrap-up

I seem to be getting lazier and lazier on the weekends. Sorry about that. Not much happened this weekend, which was blissful. I mostly sat around and watched Lloyd do stuff. On Saturday he was on the phone a loooooong time with some troubleshooting guy to fix the school’s website. Then he went up in […]

What???

What???

I was in the drive-through at Runza in Thursday when I saw a disturbing, awful sign. What the what? Let’s get a closer look…… Vegetarian Runzas? How is that even possible? They are meat-based. Meat-based.

Hmmph.

I don’t really have anything to say tonight. I thought I had a photo here that showed a poster at school that freaks me out, but I don’t, and so there’s no story to tell. We’ll catch up tomorrow, ok?

Hands off.

Hands off.

Last year I had a little boy who had some …. habits that were…..trying…. (trying to be professional here) and required that I make some modifications around the room. I took the doors off the play kitchen so he wouldn’t slam them over and over – y’know, stuff like that. He would also play with […]

You need to blink more.

Lloyd is at a movie with Samith, so I need to write this post while he’s out of the house because he’s sick of me talking about it. The last time I went to the eye doctor I was going to mention that my eyes were very dry. (I sleep with my eyes open and […]
