So yes, I am a dork. I am thanking my mom for a mandolin slicer. Back-story: my mom gave this to me over a year ago. We tried it out while she was at my house with an orange. It made a mess; I think we did it wrong. Ever since, it has been in its box in the back of cabinet. Last night, I decided to make zucchini pickles and was DREADING having to cut all the slices. I can never cut them even, and it just takes forever. Then I remembered that weird little slicer in the back of the cabinet. I decided to give it a shot, and the outcome: IT’S AWESOME!!! My slices were perfect, and it took no time to slice the veggies. YAY!
As my computer decided to crash two weeks ago, and I have yet to get a new one, I am a little behind on posting. So as I am posting from my phone, I’ll give ya a quick photo tour of the past two weeks of my lovely world. Hope you enjoy!
It’s been a fun two weeks that have included gardening (making my flowerbed, trees, and window boxes look pretty), a quilt show with my grandma, fun times at work (enjoying our strawberries and making-or watching my coworker make-a watermelon baby for a baby shower at work), and having some redneck fun (scouting for turkey, dirt track races, and eating some good ol mudbugs with good friends)!
My life may seem country, and perhaps a bit redneck, but sure is wonderful!
