    I watched the entire video. It is not a one piece nightie. Is a nice cotton'ish embroidered kurta. She is quite business like with the plates and knives. : )

    That makes sense.. two or things to use the FP for. I think I'll set DH on to both the tasks -- look for a deal in woot.com and wholesale vegetable prep on Sunday's. : )

    After going stingy on how many times the dishwasher is run, I now run it even twice a day if needed.

    Sorry, I edited the urls. This is the Cuisinart I have - https://www.amazon.com/dp/B002I5DMU0/ref=cm_sw_r_sms_apip_4zeNtQHLYHCo3
    It was the latest and greatest when I got it five yrs ago. I used to have terrible shoulder pain so I used this for a while(especially for atta). For the rest of the veggies, regardless of how I tried I couldn’t get it to chop my way.

    Do you chop and refrigerate veggies for the week? I usually do only one or two for the day and taking this out and cleaning it all started making less sense. I might just do the weekly chopping on the weekend and see how that works out.

    DW bottom rack ok? I can run it in the AM after the chopping etc before the dishes for the day pile on. Thanks for the tips.

    Are you reading my mind? DW gets run multiple times a day here too. Laundry also happens more than 4/5 loads a week. Thank god I have other people like me.

    Wipe the bhindi before slicing , it will Not leave that much moisture and you can store with a power towel on it so it will take away any leftover moisture .

    Use one tea spoon of curd while frying in the pan , any slime will go away ...

    The good man convinced me that washing the dishes by hand in the sink is useful to demonstrate being ticked off at something, but water and energy is saved by using dishwasher. More so, after our first dishwasher conked off and we got a new one.

    Dishwasher vs. hand-washing: What saves more water?

    Ok, I really should google it myself but easier to ask here - which is the best place to buy a medium range FP? Amazon? Or like for Vitamix, better to look for sale at Costco?

    He’s always right!
    Cyber Monday - every year I see it at kohl’s, amazon, target etc. They are all price matched. Never saw it at Costco but I don’t do Costco online much.

    yes I do prep on a weekend when possible , cut veggies to last for three days in a week and freeze some like Lauki which I know will not last for long in fridge.

    I do need to slice spinach twice a week , so at that time I cut other veggies too.

    I don’t use it in bottom rack as it is plastic and recommended place is upper rack. It takes up space so when I take it out I want it use it for multiple things ..

    I do atta kneading also in multiple batches and freeze so I don’t need to do it everyday and wash it.

    your model is bigger and better , should have a dicer which is much better than slicer ...

    I bought mine in thanksgiving sale few years back ...
