One more sleep until John comes home!! Interestingly enough, last night was the first night that I slept well since he has been gone. Normally on his weekend trips I sleep okay, but this longer one I haven’t been.
I did Bagel Wednesday anyway. Nothing stops that 😀 No company this time, though.
That frozen main at the old place is annoying. I called the water department and they can’t clear it from outside because the ground is frozen and they can’t dig. So, they had to come to the house and look at the main valve inside to see if they could use their equipment and drill out from the inside. The guy said “What time can you come out today?” since someone obviously had to be there. Nothing like having all the stuff go down when only one of us is at home. Anyway, I get there and then they tell me they can’t clear it from inside the house unless we have a plumber come in and change the shut off valve to a type that accepts their tools. Sigh. Or, they said we could wait until it thaws on its own, which is what we would like to do. Would be nice if temps could actually get above freezing and stay there. I guess all the houses in the couple of blocks had the same problem and we were house #28 to have the main frozen.
The effects of winter. At our old place, the house next door has not been well taken care of. The garage has looked like a death trap with a bowed roof for years. Funny thing – the neighbors put a new side door on it and started painting the sides, but totally ignored the roof other than covering it with a blue tarp. Well, this year’s heavy snowfall took its toll:
We see this from the driveway. The front of the garage at the street looks terrible because with the roof broken in, the garage door fell off the track and is dangling down. So unsafe. Of course, a bank owns that house now and they won’t do anything about it. It’s a good thing for potential buyers to see, don’t you think? 🙄
Anyway enough house stuff.
I am still enjoying the Spiralizer. Potatoes are awesome with this tool. I used the angel hair shredder on a 5 oz potato:
Then I sprayed the waffle iron with cooking spray and put the potatoes in there, using a spatula to even them out and get them all in there. Added some salt and peppah
Then cooked for about 5 minutes. If you use a blade bigger than the angel hair, it would probably take longer:
The lighting is a little weird because there were a bit darker than this. Anyway, this was a fun side dish and very quick.
It makes a serving of potato look huge, too. My eyes like that. Looks like I waffled spaghetti, doesn’t it? Hmmmm…. I wonder how that would be?
