For my Birthday Joshua got me a dehydrator! Since we're adventuring more into backpacking and things I'd mentioned making our own dehydrated dinners would be fun and he must have remembered.
Also while they are dehydrating our whole apartment smells tropical. We've had a lot of people over and we've sat around the table each time just snacking on dried fruit.
We're looking forward to putting it in our oatmeal while backpacking and snacking on it while we hike. Next up I want to try some homemade hummus and pasta sauce in the dehydrator because then we can have it day 3 into backpacking just by adding a little water- so much experimenting to do!
