Unwelcome surprise
maybembt posted:
Hi Everyone!
I have been real good today. I have been concentrating on my fruits and veggies. Tomorrow is market day, so tonight I decided to juice all my veggies so I could get new tomorrow. I got out my juicer. I haven't used it since Oct. It is a lot of work! I washed the washed the receptacles and wiped down the unite. I juices carrots, radishes, cucumbers, and cucumbers. I was so proud of myself. When I tore apart the unit to wash it, I got an unwelcome surprise. There was a mud dabber (wasp) nest inside it!!! All that work for nothing.

Oh yuck, Marybeth! I wonder what nutrition a wasp nest has in it? LOL! Seriously though, you had to have been so frustrated! Haven't we all had similar experiences - well, not exactly! I once made vegetable beef soup from my grandmother's recipe. It takes hours, but is delicious. I left out a major ingredient. I added it at the end, but that batch just was never what it should have been.

Kudos for trying to use up those great veggies.

Waaaah, let me out of there!

Hate when that happens....a recipe gets foiled. I hope you do get to make that again and do enjoy the results.

Awwwww. All that food and work went to waste. I am so sorry! Maybe it will make up itself by having some good deals at the market. Glad your posting
