Zucchini “Parmezano” Crisps

I met my guru person in front of the restaurant, Midas Touch. I want you to breathe, and count your breath. “You mean, count, using numbers,” I queried. “Because I started meditating when I was forty, and I’ve worked so hard to get rid of the numbers,in my head. G.” He never lost that amazing smile, and didn’t really answer. So after a pause, hoping he would change his mind, I acquiesced. “Okay, I will do as you say. To what number?” He looked like he thought that was really funny. “To 107.” He said.  “Okay, I responded. “But why not 108, for the number of Buddhist saints, and on the numbers on the mala?” “You know,”  he said, “They added one in case we forget!” Ha ha!  

“You watch your breath, and count. And tell me where the breath comes from.” Interesting! I will meet next week or whenever he appears again, and tell you the answer! I hope. If he lets me.

  7. Bake the zucchini rounds until browned and crisp, 25 to 30 minutes. Or dehydrate at 105 degrees for 4 hours or until desired crispness.
