Oops!

On Monday, I  managed to drop food on the floor quite a few times. I dropped a whole pint of dehydrated grape tomatoes on the floor. This gives me the opportunity to see how they will rehydrate before I feed them to the chickens. I didn't just drop the dehydrated tomatoes, I ran into the refrigerator with the tray of 3 pints of dehydrated tomatoes.


Then, I knocked my plate with chocolate chips off the dehydrator as I hurried to get back to the tv. The chickens won't get these. I wonder if raccoons would like these.


Then, I tried to put scraps into the trash bag. When I inadvertently kicked the bag, I managed to drop it all on the floor.


Cause of clumsiness? Prometrium makes me premenstrual.


On a better note, I have 2 pints of dehydrated grape tomatoes in a pint jar. It appears the other four pints in the dehydrator will fit in the pint jar, too. That would make six pints of grape tomatoes in a pint jar.


I cut each grape tomato from stem to blossom end. Some of the grape tomatoes seemed rather large, so the halves were often 1/2 inch thick. After dehydrating, each half is absolutely flat and very thin. It amazes me to see how much they shrink.


Maybe these will end up being tomato powder after they meet my coffee bean grinder. Maybe they will end up in soup just as they are.


I have a recipe that calls for sundried tomatoes. Maybe these will work instead of the expensive bottle of sundried tomatoes. Plus, there will be no sulfites in these to make me breathless and dizzy and unable to see clearly.


Your turn
Have you had clumsy days? Do you know the cause? Who has dehydrated grape tomatoes? How did you use them?

  1. Clumsy is normal for me. Are grape tomatoes similar to cherry tomatoes?

    1. Janie,
      It is sort of normal for me, just not one thing after another that day. Cherry tomatoes are larger than grape tomatoes.

  2. I think when you have a clumsy day like that you should forget about everything and just sit. That is what I do, so I don't drop everything. I get like that when I am really tired.

    1. Gill,
      I was very tired from the weekend out of town. Plus, the progesterone did not help. It makes me like the pms days of the past. I am going to catch on the sitting! Excellent idea!

  4. Why would you feed the raccoons and encourage them? Throw the food away you can't feed to the chickens where the raccoons can't get it.

    1. Jane,
      I use food for bait to catch raccoons. I would rather use dirty dehydrated tomatoes than a strawberry that I can eat.

  5. Clumsy is my middle name. And more often that I care to think about the only one I answer to...

    1. EC,
      A case of PMS added to my natural clumsy and injured hands makes me quite the butterfingers. I dropped a huge, heavy stapler on a professor's instep. She was in such pain and did not cry or yell at me.

  6. It seems once I start dropping things it just progresses. I wonder if we should just go back to bed.

    1. Sonya Ann,
      I did all this stuff over the span of an hour or so. Going back to bed would be the perfect solution if I hadn't been up to my elbows with grape tomatoes.
