Thrifty Thursday

I've been very busy again this week and haven't had the time or energy to post anything. Today after I finished the work I had to do, finished the housework on my list and completed the errands I had to run, I decided to stop by a couple of my favorite thrift stores.

I'm really glad I did! After years of looking for a good price on a dehydrator I finally found one for only $3! I'm so excited. I have been using my make do version that works but this will be nicer because it came with 4 trays and I picked up a couple of extra for only 50 cents each. I don't think they came with this dehydrator but they fit anyway. I already have mushrooms drying.

I also picked up some vintage Tupperware. I've not seen the cookware before. It says on the bottom it works in regular or microwave ovens. I'll have to check that out. If anyone has any info on it I'd appreciate it. I only paid $2 for the Tupperware and a few other small items.

Tomorrow my hubby and I are headed over to Muddy Pond, a Mennonite community near Crossville, Tn. We do business with a nice Mennonite couple at their store The Country Porch. I am so looking forward to a piece of delicious homemade Coconut cake there. It is the best I have ever had.

I also hope to go by the General Store there and the Bakery. I want to pick up some Sticky Buns and other goodies. I'll try to get some good pictures to post.

Then tomorrow night we are off to the Harry Potter party. We have been to every one since the first book. My son is looking forward to it. Until next time. God Bless.

Carrie, I don't have any Tupperware that resembles yours. Nice finds, though!

Can anyone else identify these Tupperware pieces?

Too bad. I was in hope that you could tell me something about the cookware. It says on the bottom that it is good in conventional or microwave. I didn't know Tupperware even made cookware. Thanks for looking.

Aunt Margaret has some like the one on the left of your pic and an orange one similar to your yellow one.She got those from Big Momma Bush when she died.

I found out it is called Ultra 21 cookware. Tupperware made it in the 80's apparently.

I used to have some of this do not microwave the tops at all if I remember right. The bottoms would go in the oven but to a certin degree{call tupperware and ask} They discontinued some of the larger pieces in this series I heard, as they broke when dropped. Later they brought out another type of microwave pieces with the sheer look. Like the ones they have now. Mine never cracked. If yours do they might still give you credit towards another kind. I think they still have a replacement guarantee but give credit points if something is no longer made. The yellow piece is a shaker for say flour and water to use in making gravy or anything to be had a little round thing that set in it between the lid and yellow bottom to help in the mixing. Have fun with your wonderful finds!
