Say Hello to my "NEW BABY" :o)

She arrived Yesterday at about 12:30 pm, and I was too busy running errands before the great storm before I could tell you about her. I'm the typical "Grandma" crowding up the kitchen with all my "necessary" stuff I need to make a meal :o).  I didn't think her Black Dress went well with my kitchen colors, but Lo and behold it did and she makes a grand appearance :o)...I lifted her skirts :o) so you could get a good look at her..she is pretty all over ! She will  cut the size bag I need , and then she can vacuum the air out of the bag.:o) and then she will close it with a heated kiss.
I think she will be a great help to me during the "canning" season, and also with saving leftovers...Already she has saved leftover Pastrami for a sandwich. It's nice and airtight  too.She came just in time..I had her grandmother that I threw out about a month ago (after 30 years :o(  she was bad to the core years ago. Also, last night a package of the Cranberry beans burst! I had used one of those vacuum thingies and it wasn't secure enough to last! :o(
Yesterday I did pick up some Chicken Legs on sale, and when I'm rested a bit, I'm going to see how well she will save them for me..I have many idea's, and I'm willing to listen to some of yours...Do you think I should give her a name instead of "New Baby"? Send me your idea's about it.

I never ever would have guessed what that was, Ginny! HA! I bet you'll get a lot of use out of it. I don't have any ideas for a name, but I'm sure you'll come up with something. :)

Hi Ginnie, WOW this is some new baby - would never have guessed what this was going to be. And with all your canning and preserving this should be great. Alas, I don't have any name suggestions, but will do some thinking on that.

We had SNOW here onb the VA eastern shore today - less than 3 inches.

I was beginning to think we weren't going to see this new baby and lo and behold there she is! She's quite a girl! My guess for a name is Sassy Saver LOL!!! Let me know how well she works and what brand you bought. I've never had one before.

How exciting, we have often talked about getting one of these. Hopefully she will last you another 30 plus years.:)

Daisy, Sometimes I'm full of surprises :o) and I'm hoping I'll get a lot of good use from it :o)

Beatrice, I'm hoping she will be a nice working baby too :o) I'm just about sick of the snow and my bones are sick of telling me it's coming

Mama Bug, I had the same feeling, but she came a day ahead of schedule , guess so delivery wouldn't be in the coldest day we have had thus far. It's "FoodSaver" brand and it will take time to see how well she works for me.

Mr. H. her grandma wasn't as specialized, all she was able to do was seal, times have changed and she's the newest thing going for now, glad I lived to see her :o) 30 years and she will go to the great grands, I'll be pushing up daisy's :o Ginny

Ding dong, I was wrong. I was guessing a food processor. Your lovely lady in her shiny black dress is a great addition to your kitchen.

The Gingerbread House said...

Ladydi, you were only wrong once! You were right about the Jar Lid, it's perfect. Thank you for taking the time and sending it...Santa should remember that you have been a good girl this year..Ginny

How about "Penny"....for all the pennies she is going to save you.

Jillid, Penny is a good name, hope she will measure up to it. Ginny
