Weekend Whats

What to Dry: Full disclosure. In between editions of NextDraft, I’m preparing for apocalypse by dehydrating fruits and other foods in my new Excalibur 3926TB. It’s easy, sort of fun, the kids like it, and I’ve already got about two presidential term’s worth of dried apples and bananas; but, sadly, not even a single slice for you – so start drying. (Whether or not you’re ready for the Excalibur, you’ll definitely want a Cuisipro Apple Corer. If he were a grocer, Dirty Harry would have held one of these when he said, “You’ve gotta ask yourself one question: ‘Do I feel lucky?’ Well, do ya, punk?” I’ve thankfully never had to test theory, but I’m convinced that the Cuisipro Apple Corer could double as a home defense weapon.)

+ What to Watch: You’ll have to wait around for a few hours while your fruit dehydrates. Luckily, Stranger Things is back for your binge.

+ What to Read: And what will your kids do while the fruit is drying? (That’s one of those key questions never addressed in parenting books…) Hook them up with this great new book from Matthew Swanson and Robbi Behr (writers, illustrators, and NextDraft T-shirt wearers): The Real McCoys.
