The baked zucchini I tried yesterday wasn't what I expected, but still good. So today I thought I'd try another recipe. This one was for zucchini chips. The recipe said it was a healthy alternative to potato chips or French fries. I disagree. These are more like a healthier alternative to breaded mushrooms or pickles. My husband even tried a couple. I was expecting something crunchy like potato chips, but now I wonder if it was an "American" recipe or if the chips reference was really what we call fries. That could be. Anyway, I have yet another recipe to try. This one involves the dehydrator, my old friend. Just slice zucchini thin, add a little olive oil, sprinkle with salt and pepper, put in the dehydrator, and voila! I'm glad I bought two zucchini today.
I know where the food fair is, but it's not until next week. That will make it a little harder since I think I have a birthday party to go to for my husband's niece and nephew. Then again, it's on our way so maybe we can stop before we head out.
When I had a hermit crab before I don't remember it taking a lot of effort. Looking up information last night it says they need a heater, fresh and salt water, and a minimum 10 gallon tank. I still want one (or 4) but don't see it being the best idea for a group of 2 year olds. I don't remember what size tank I had, but don't think it was very big, and used fish gravel. And I know we just used fresh water and had no heater.
I'm still confused about what's going on with my body. I ate crap yesterday, including a candy bar and frozen yogurt. I weighed myself this morning and it's the lightest I've been. Maybe it is the water.
