Washer broke down. Tried to fix it, and couldn't. So, off to ye oldde appliance shoppe.
Got a larger freezer while we were there. Our little chest freezer wasn't holding everything anymore.
Ouch. Even with shopping around, getting good deals, discounts, it was still a pretty penny.
But given how long our washers last, we shouldn't need to buy a new one for at least a decade.
I've got ten pounds of Cajun andouille smoking right now. That's a staple in our winter diet. Nothing like good smoked andouille to add to soups and stews. And gumbo. And red beans and rice. Oh yeah.
