Awesome Gift y’all!

My stepmom and dad usually send us an Amazon gift card for Christmas. It is hard to choose what you want to buy though? I ordered a pair of rain boots that don’t fit- so now I must look for another, it is hard when it’s rainy season for me to go feed and do animals since I do not have an appropriate footwear. I may have to buy a men’s pair because I have feet the size of an alligator, well I wear a women’s 12, and need wide. Do you know how hard it is to find cute shoes? Right now I think I must give up on cute though and go practical.

So I looked over Amazon and decided to order a dehydrator. I have been wanting one for awhile- and have had this in my wishlist for some time. I am excited to be able to use it, and am looking up recipes for some things now. If you have any tips or tricks- please comment! I am always excited to learn things!


I did get a fruit roll sheet- and if the girls decide they like them- I will look into purchasing some more. The mesh screens are supposed to be for blueberries and tomatoes- I read the reviews. I can’t wait to take it out of the box and try it! It took me awhile looking online to find one I liked that was a good starter in my price range. Look forward to some dehydrating adventures in the future! See links below for purchase details.

  1. Awesome gifts! I need to get a new dehydrater, too. We got one about 8 years ago at a garage sale for $1, and it worked great for a long time, but wouldn’t you know it’s finally kicked the bucket 😛 I’d love to get a freeze-dryer at some point, but I think I’ll have to wait a few years until they’re much more affordable.

    Also, for cute rainboots I have a pair of Bogs, which I love, but for my workaday, out tending the garden and the animals boots, I have a pair of men’s Muck boots. They are the best! I got mine at Costco, but Amazon has them for a good price, too. My husband and I love them.

  2. Yes to everyone who said Bogs. They can be expensive, but if you scour Amazon, you can probably find some on sale. They can run $60-120, but are definitely worth the investment. The ones I have are my all purpose boots, including for cold Wisconsin winters. I’ve had mine for almost a year, so I don’t know how long they will hold out.
    Dehydrating is really neat to be able to do. I don’t do enough of it. I think the only “tip” I can think of is that I have yet to over-dry anything. Longer is better. If you aren’t sure if it’s dry enough, it’s probably not. Fruit leather might be a little different, if you go too long, it will be crunchy instead of chewy.
