Two dehydrator experiments in process
To say that I have been lazy today doesn’t even begin to describe my day. I got up this morning and it was 36 degrees outside. Baby it was cold outside! I did not feel like walking to the grocery store, or even walking to the car to drive to the store. Once I was warm and snuggled into my little slippers and workout clothes I wasn’t leaving the house. I hate when I am unproductive like this, but sometimes it happens to all of us. Instead of taking care of errands I headed to the kitchen instead (what a surprise right). I have two experiments in the dehydrator now.
We have been eating a lot of kale chips and I wanted to try another variation. Today I decided to make curried kale chips. I made them exactly like the other chips except I added about a tablespoon of my curry powder in place of the other flavorings. If you like Indian food you should give these a try. I used my homemade curry powder and I think they are quite good. I have sampled a few that were almost finished and I think they are really good, as well as good for you.
Next I decided to try my hand at flaxseed crackers. I made mine with all ground flaxseeds since I have read that whole flaxseeds leave the body the same way they entered. What is the point of eating them that way? I would prefer to have my body absorb the omega 3. The crackers are still in the dehydrator so I don’t know how they will turn out, but I will let you whether it is a success or a bust.
Now it is a little after 7pm and I need to run to the health food store and to the library to return a bunch of books that are due tomorrow.
It will be late tonight before we have dinner but I will try to post the recipe before we turn in. If not tonight, I will post the recipe tomorrow. I guess I should start thinking about what I am going to cook. Nothing like waiting until the last minute to decide what I am going to make for dinner, huh? Today I haven’t been very productive or organized.
