Bagels approach... [Dec. 1st, 2008|10:55 am]
Verminius Rex
On Friday I get to bake a gross of bagels for Sister to sell at a craft show, so I started collecting those ingredients that have waned since the end of Market season. While at Hy-Vee getting barley malt syrup (really need to find a source for barley malt powder) I also restocked the eggs, and each carton had a coupon for Spam singles or some hash mix singles. So I got this flat rectangle of compressed rehydrated potatoes and ground sausage, which I browned up and ate with some scrambled eggs.


Not the best, not the worst. Unless it's on sale I don't think it'll be making it into the emergency pantry (yes, 3 cans of lower fat Spam is in the emergency supplies, it's mandatory). I need to organize the shelf to do a final count, but so far I have about 4 gallons of water and enough cans of stew and such for a couple days. I need to kick it up before foul weather season is full on us.

Right now I'm having issues with the dishwasher, the water isn't draining out the bottom. I'm assuming at this point that something is plugging the line, soon as I can figure out how to pop off that water spinner assembly I'll see if I can find the obstruction, last thing I want is to pay a repair guy to come out for a 5 minute repair. In recent years I've reached the point that I prefer to get everything fixes soon as possible, so they don't pile up and suddenly I'm standing in a broken house with a couple grand in repairs needed.

do you have a short 2" stubby thing that comes up on the back of the kitchen sink? turns out that is an overflow drain for the dishwasher and you can pop that out and clean it and it might solve the problem - I had to pay a plummer to learn this

There's a couple things in the dishwasher itself that I'm checking out, so far I figured out how to remove the water spinner thing on bottom. There is some sort of stubby thing inside the dishwasher, I figure I'll take apart what I can easily and if I don't spot a clog I'll work my way to the hose between the dishwasher and the garbage disposal. I'm thinking that an onion skin or something may be laying across an opening, or just general buildup.
