New Juicer!

I got a juicer at the thrift store for $10 the other day and I am excited. Here is my favorite juice recipe that I have been drinking in the AM first thing.

1 large cucumber
1 celery stalk
4 strawberries
1 large red delicious apple
1/2 large carrot
Bunch of spinach
Mint leaves

It will yield about 2 cups.


Lazy Weekends


I bought a slicer from the thrift store the other day for $3 an couldn’t wait to try it out to make apple chips and sweet potato fries, two of my favorite things, that happen to be kinda expensive when brought precut.

My total came up to $4 for two large apples and a large sweet potato. The amount of chips is about two 2oz bags worth and the sweet potatoes were filled up a quart freezer bag. I am in love with my slicer. I cut everything up in about 5 minutes. It took about an hour to cook the apples at 250 degrees in my oven, and the fries cooked at 350 in about 25 minutes. Neither needed any sugar or toppings.
