    Well, I hit the "buy" button; you all know what that means, right?


    Yup, time to start buying those dehydrator cookbooks in my wish list. Of course, it also means I can start accessorizing my dehydrator...I think they see me coming:innocent:

    Oh, it's definitely a racket. They sell dehydrators with at least 4 trays, mine has 5. They include one fruit roll up sheet and one mesh sheet for smaller items, such as herbs and small veggies that would fall through the regular trays. Moist people want one each per tray...so you either buy them separately in sets of two(remember the original number of trays?)or browse the forum to find cheaper alternatives. I'm not too worried about the roll up sheets; I have tons of butcher and parchment paper. The hardware store has rolls of mesh for windows; people use that for homemade solar dryers, so it's safe.

    My shopping cart at amazon has a Romertopf (clay baking vessel) that I neither need nor have the room for. But I want it! It calls to me. I have no self-discipline.

    It's not all serious stuff: I have book two of the Mongoliad in that list. Plus a GI Joe graphic novel in there written by Max Brooks that looks pretty badass.

    Hey, you know what your budget can tolerate. I don't see the harm as long as it doesn't deprive you and yours of food, shelter, and other basic necessities of life.

    There are currently 87 books on my wishlist. I intend to purchase them all this year.

    This is going to be expensive. :(
