I was washing out a few glass jars the other day when I ended up with one metal lid missing.  I finally gave up and put the jars away...never thinking to check the garbage disposal.  Well, the rat bastard froze up on me.  Oh and I found the lid....all mangled up.


Been trying to fix it for days now.  I paniked and went to the store to buy a strainer so nothing could clog up that part of the drain.

 

Bought one of these tiny little dish drainers to put in the other side.   I remember years ago the disposal froze up.  It took over a week to get it running again.  Meanwhile it had gotten so stopped up that we had to bail water out of the kitchen daily.  I sure didn't want to have to deal with that again.  I remember that I ended up washing dishes in the bathroom sink.

 

Got together my tools.




I put the wrench in the opening on the bottom of the disposal and turn it left and right to try and loosen it.

 

Then from the top I used this plunger handle to get it to turn from the sink.



I was such a happy camper when I got it to run.  So happy of the money I saved by not having to call someone to fix it.  Everything was working fine until last night when I heard the familiar humming instead of the grinding noise when I turned it on.  Crap...back to the drawing board.  I'll play with it tomorrow.

I started on T-Jay's and my taxes today.  I can't believe I'm actually doing what I promised myself.   Not to wait until the last minute.  It's nice not to be in a rush for a change.

When I went to visit my mom last week, she shared a bag of Rainbow Trout with me, that her neighbor had caught.  I've been eating off of them for the last two days.  It had been a long time since I had fish.  I smothered them with onions and seasonings in a bunch of butter with some sweet potato and yogurt on the side.  Absolutely awesome!!





All done!

Yes, I used my fingers to get up some of the juice. :)
