Dried Plums Oops...and Fix!

When you plan on having a crying kid be your alarm, things might not work out quite right.  I left my plums dehydrating last night.  They needed to shut off about 1:30 or so.  Owen usually wakes up and beats on his gate about that time, and gets his second sleep med.  I figured everything would work out perfectly. 

Simon woke up first, so I stumbled around and looked at the clock.  It was 4 am.  That was the most sleep I had gotten in a couple months. For that I am thankful!  But, my plums didn't turn out so well.  They were definitely dried out. 

Hard, crisp and not much fun to eat.  Thankfully, there was a quick fix.  I put a handful in a sandwich bag just to test my theory.  I added a few drops of water, and sealed it up for about 10 minutes.  When I opened it up, the plums were rehydrated just a bit. 

This time they were softer, and much better to chew on.  The kids all approved.  So it was a win-win morning.  I got lots more sleep than normal.  And I saved the plums! 

Do you ever use your kids as alarm clocks?
