Our dryer broke a couple of weeks ago. After taking apart the dryer and figuring out that we needed a new dryer belt, like a fan belt in a car. We descovered that you can't buy one in our small town. Since then I have been hanging up our laundry to dry it, at first this was temporary but then I don't mind it. Plus our electricity bill was HUGE last month so I will keep hanging our laundry, and in the spring, outside.
The other day I made samosas from scratch! Totally rad...very easy! Just mashed potatoes, peas, curry and pie crust. Here's the link for the recipe: http://www.realsimple.com/food-recipes/browse-all-recipes/quick-easy-samosas-10000001707637/index.html
