Our Local QFC Has Eggs For $7.35/Doz. $7.35! For Eggs!
So, when SWMBO and I stopped by the Chefs Store the other day, we found 15 dozen for just under $50. And, since I have a Freeze Dryer, we got them. That’s, let’s see. 49.00 divided by 15 dozen, …, carry the 4, = $3.26 (rounded down) per dozen. Hey, I could run them through the freeze dryer and sell them for $5/doz and still make some bucks. Hmmm….
I won’t though. Too much like work. And, with my luck someone allergic to eggs would buy some, get sick, sue me and I’d wind up sleeping under the bridge in Bremerton. I’m too old to sleep under any bridge; much less the one in Bremerton. I know it would happen in today’s world cause most people are dicks these days. Don’t get me started.
Anyway, that’s a butt-ton of eggs and they should last us a long time. Can’t make “over-easy” (or anything else that requires a whole yolk) but they’re good for omelets and egg sammiches and such. And baking. I may go get another 15 dozen next week.
Running 1.5 gals of whole milk through the freeze dryer today. Have sliced peppers and something called “riced cauliflower” that SWMBO picked up to try for the next batch. We’re still perfecting the re-hydration part of all this and she thinks that smaller pieces will re-hydrate better. Hey, it’s costing only $5 to prove her right.
That was yesterday and the milk turned out good. To me, re-hydrated in COLD water and it still tastes like milk. Which is what it’s supposed to do.
Dropped $100 at Ace Hardware today for parts for my next hydroponics experiment. Going to try root veggies in buckets. And a mater plant. I’ll post pics when I get it up and running. Yeah, starting the project kind of late, but just now rested from all the traveling and events of 2022 (I never want another 2022) so it’s time to get it started.
SWMBO ordered an “electronic” pet door to let the Dog still go out but keep her new Cat inside until it gets big enough to kinda sorta protect itself outside. Guess who got to install it? Dang, the door was heavy when I took it off! Got it done and the Dog refuses to go through it. Don’t get me started.
Running hash browns and apple slices through the freeze dryer tonight. SWMBO spent the day at a friends trying to “thin out” some of the hoarding she’s done over the past 50 years. (The friend has hoarded. Not SWMBO. But, if one was to look at her sewing room ….)
Cold and windy out. Wx Weenies have predicted possible snow for Monday night-Wednesday morning. And we still pay them.
Have ripped 10 seasons of “Hawaii Five-0” and 8 seasons of “House” and will start them converting tonight just before I go to bed. Even with “Handbrake” using my GPU’s it’s gonna take at least a couple of days to get all those episodes done. Keeps SWMBO happy though; to be able to click on an icon and watch her favorite shows on the big tv. I have no idea how she’s going to keep all the electronics, movies, and tv shows up after I die. She’s a user.
We’ll both be glad when Starlink gets here though.
The new NAS seems to be working fine. Not sure if it’s the NAS, the Network, or my computer that sometimes pauses in the middle of a program; except my computer will also pause for a bit when copying files from one drive to another locally. May be time to upgrade my distro.
That’s about it. Long time coming. Want all y’all I “follow” to know I appreciate your posts. Keeps me entertained.
