Onion Ring Veggie Coating

When I first heard someone wanted to rent my “big house,” I had mixed feelings! It’s hard to leave my beautiful new house, not even a year old. Great to share it with a family making “the big move,” to Ecuador from the States. Hard to mourn my new space. Great to camp in the yoga platform again. It’s magical up there. It actually makes me happy. But where did I get all this stuff in two years? I came with two suitcases!

HomeMade Fruit Roll-Ups

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!

Recipe of the Day : Fruit Roll-UpThe 2 good recipes I made lately are:

5 apples
2 red pears
8 large strawberries
OR
2 apples,
2 red pears
2 c. raspberries
1 banana

OR
2 bananas
handful strawberries
handful raspberries
handful peaches

Directions:

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
