Since I've been trying to eat (semi) Paleo I've been reading a number of blogs that talked about Paleo eating. I became interested in drying foods, especially kale and making kale chips. I had some really tasty kale chips -- don't laugh they were yummy! -- a couple of weeks ago. I found them on sale at a local grocery. Generally the packaged kale chips in New York City are over $7.00 a package. That seemed a ridiculous price to pay and in a moment of adventure/practicality/weakness I pushed the one-touch buy button on Amazon and now I am the proud owner of a dehydrator. I have yet to use it, but I am planning to inaugurate it this weekend. I saw some good tips on Pinterest, but would love any ideas you would have to share with a very novice dehydrator. I'm interested in both successes and less than successes. Before I buy that first batch of organic kale, I could use some real life experiences.
I don't have any recipes to share today, but I hope one day to join "Dehydrator Recipes Thursday."
Life is quiet these days in Buttercupland. But with the coming of spring -- just a month away -- I feel the pulse of things picking up. Next week is a retirement party for a colleague of long standing -- the third in a month -- and next month one of my favorite cousins turns 50, and there's a fun party to look forward to. In April a dear friend has planned a visit to New York and theater weekend. Then there's Passover, Easter and spring flowers. I'm getting a little giddy just thinking about it all, and it's a sweet, sweet giddy.
Wishes for a sweet, sweet giddy to you, too!
