The mom says she is dog tired. Well, excuse us! We do admit she ran around all day doing strange things, getting ready for a visit from someone named Sandy. We sure hope she has fun when Sandy visits cause she doesn't do nearly all the things she did today when someone else comes calling.
She did want to share some exciting findings with all our furriends. She hopes if they ever lose their lectickity this will help them out. She found out you can build a stove and oven out of stuff around the house, and they actually work, allowing you to cook without leckrickity! Here's video on YouTube she found that explains it all:
Also, here is a short showing you can use a flower pot as a grill. She thinks you could put a buddy burner (see the first video to find out what that is) in the bottom and rig a grill top for it too.
When she was looking for alternative cooking, she found a type of insulated cooking, where part is done on the stove and part is done in an insulated container. Of course, this would have to be done when there is power.
There are many different ways to do this, and there are patterns for making insulated blankets for cooking, but the mom is allergic to sewing and wanted to show a way of doing it without spending any money. (Do you remember she is into cheapatude?) She wonders how much people could save in lectickity bills?
One of the things the mom did today was make a buddy burner and she intends on trying it if she needs to. Too bad she didn't know of it when we suffered through the derecho this past summer. She hopes maybe this will help some of our furriends out there. We're sorry for the short notice.
Please stay safe. We will be thinking of all our East Coast furriends, purring and praying for them. In particular, The Girl could take a direct hit since she is in school northwest of Philly. Also, our furriends at Avalon's Gardens and Mewsings of Garden Cottage Cats could be hit directly if the track is a little more northerly. If the storm turns a little more southerly, we will be the ones taking it on the chin. We hope you all ride the storm out safely. And we hope to be able to post again soon, like Monday.
Pee S, This is the first time we uploaded videos! We included the address, just in case the mom blew it. Anyway, look around and watch other videos too. Everyone has their own way of doing this type of cooking and you might be inspired! Purrs!
Pee Pee S, Sorry about not leaving comments, there just isn't enough time! We'll try tomorrow sometime, if we have power.
