My daughter loves her air fryer and uses it several times a week. I have been tempted to get one. After I clear out my pantry I might rethink that.So, I did a thing yesterday... I ordered an air fryer. I've been thinking about it for a month, but held off because I felt like this would highly likely become another "appliance-that-will-revolutionize-my-life-that-never-actually-gets-used" thing. But I keep reading about how people love theirs and how they use them and it does seem like a good fit for what I need to be doing... one pan dinners with a protein and a veggie. I cleared out the counter space for it before I ordered it, to make sure what I was thinking would work. So we'll see how it goes.
Once again I'm second guessing my Feb/March WDW trip, ugh. I'm hoping that the current spike will be waning by then. My dining window opens tomorrow and I'll go ahead and make my ADRs, just not very excited about it. I did order my points reward card yesterday, I currently have $331 on it and then will load what is added for Jan/Feb before I go. That will cover my fancy sit-down dinners and the only out of pocket food expense will be snack and QS. That is exciting.
We got one last year for Christmas. We love it. We use it several times a week. We have made Chicken and pork chops in it. Also, the kids like fish sticks and chicken nuggets in it as they are crispier. Also hot dogs taste like they are they grilled. We also make homemade fries which are healthier then the store bought ones.So, I did a thing yesterday... I ordered an air fryer.

These are awesome. You guys are great at decorating them.
Not sure if this was mentioned to you but don't be shocked if her nose turns into a faucet! DS6 scratched DH's eye when he was a baby. At the doc appointment he ended up blowing his nose repeatedly after drops went in...turns out depending on where the scratch is the liquid can drain into the nasal cavity. Per DH's doctor completely normal but can be a bit alarming if you aren't expecting it.Today has been a bit of a crazy and relaxing day. DD woke up with her eye hurting really bad this morning. After trying a few things at home I took her to the eye doctor. She has a scratch on her eye. It is small and under the bottom eye lid. She on an ointment 3 times a day for the next 5 days. She goes back on Thursday to make sure it is healing.
Please let us know how the air fryer works for you. I would love to know.Woohoo... thanks everyone for the positive feedback on air fryers. I got the Ninja Foodi that has all the different functions and you can flip it up-right when not in use. It does feel oriented towards smaller meals, which was an issue with crockpots and Instapots, and the grill I had ordered just wasn't what I was expecting, so I am hopefully that this will be a success. I've seen a salmon and a chicken recipe that look particularly good.
Woohoo... the snow melted just a little bit yesterday, instead of turning into sheets of ice. We are expecting more snow tonight/tomorrow then a slow warm up until rain starts Saturday. Woohoo for rain! I'm figuring I'll be able to get out and about Sunday and I kept Monday as an extra day off so might be able to do something then. Except... in addition to my wet allergy cough I've been having a dry cough, at night in particular, and a more-than-normal stuffy runny nose. Evidently these are two covid symptoms, but I haven't had any others so at this point I'm just paying attention. A little over a week ago I had my slew of appointments - dentist, orthodontist, ophthalmologist, optometrist - and I guess symptoms can show up from 2 to 14 days after exposure, so I would still be in the window for exposure from any of them. Other than that the only people I've been around not masked and just in passing are my SIL and Nephew, which is now 5 days ago. If I were to get sick from that sad little Christmas gathering I would not be pleased.
I'd like to so woohoo I can book ADRs today, but I'm still pretty blasé about it. Maybe doing so will help me get more excited about the trip.
