I miss my son so much today. He’s 19. And I wonder if he’s okay. But my friends say that I have a serious case of “Empty Nest Syndrome.” I don’t know if that’s true. I’m not lonely or wondering what to do with myself. I love my life. I just seriously love my son, and miss being with him! Here’s one of the recipes he likes. When he was 14 he said these fruit roll-ups were better than store-bought!
2 red pears
8 large strawberries
2 red pears
2 c. raspberries
Puree all the fruit together or fruits of choice in the food processor. Spread on lined dehydrator sheets 1/8-1/4 inch thick. Score into long rectangles. Dehydrate at 95 degrees for 12 hours, then flip, if they’re relatively dry, not mushy. Flip the parchment paper over and dehydrate again, probably another 8 hours, until bendable, not crisp. You can also spread these with almond or other nut/seed butters, roll up and slice for a great party dish!
Word of the Day: cocinar – cook
Tip of the Day: When you’re obsessing over someone, send them light and love and move on, right? I learned that from “Eat, Pray, Love.”
