Tried to Set Up Dishwasher/Narrowly Avoided Spending

January 10th, 2012 at 06:02 pm

Today I ended up not eating lunch at the cafeteria an so only had some trail mix. By the time 3:30 rolled around, I was *hungry*. I was *sorely* tempted to stop at Blimpies and get a cheese sandwich. But I reminded myself that I had plenty to eat at home, and that most of it wouldn't take too long. So, I persevered and headed home.

When I arrived home I had my dishwasher staring me in the face. It's been here a week now and I hadn't attempted to set it up yet for a variety of reasons. Tonight I decided that I would set it up - so I ate a granola bar to give me a little energy and set to work.

Problem ... there is supposed to be a faucet adapter included inside the dishwasher. It is nowhere to be found. So ... I got everything else set up, but am unable to hook it up. I *briefly* thought about running into big town (30+ miles one way) but decided that since I'd waited this long, I could wait a few more days. Sigh....

I know I have another box of plasticware around here somewhere ...

Tonight I had a can of Amy's Lentil soup + a pkg of macaroni. I should have cooked it one minute longer so the macaroni would've been soft. Otherwise it was really good and filling on a cold evening.

Tomorrow I have my journalism kids and must really watch the yearbook set up videos tonight ... ugh. What I really want to do is go to bed early. (I already took a bit of a nap this afternoon.)

Question --

How long can eggs stay good in the refrigerator? I have some eggs that are over 6 weeks old ... (can you say procrastination???)

    Your soup and macaroni sounds good to me but I love lentils and I love pasta. I have some lentils, still, and maybe I'll make a lentil soup rather than straight vegetable soup. Hmmm.

    As for the eggs, I've kept them for 8 or so weeks and they were fine though most food safety sites say 3 to 5 weeks.

    Put your eggs in a pan of cold water. If they float, throw them out. If they sink they are fine. If they sort of stand up on their ends or at an angle, but don't really float, eat those ones first. They are still good but are older and are better used for hard-boiling or baking.

    Eggs stay good for a long time. I would use them.
    LR has the right idea listed above.

    Thanks all. Now I just need to figure out how to use my food dehydrator to boil eggs. I know it can be done because the lady I lived with this last summer did it often. Smile
