Although I never intended for this to be a challenge on cooking,
we just haven't tried anything new at the restaurants we've been to.
We've been focusing on using all the gorgeous fruits and veggies from our CSA.
We've now decided that we're going to try and made everything into chips.
Kale chips, which aren't pictured, are very popular in our house.
Everyone likes them, even the Peanut.
Although, I'm pretty sure Peanut likes them because
he thinks he's getting away with eating crunchy paper.
May I also say that I had to overcome my fear of the mandolin for this weeks adventure.
My mom broke out her fancy professional one and I concentrated hard on keeping all my fingertips and knuckles because, believe me, I've seen a lot of people lose both on this thing.
The beet chips were really tasty. I think I would just use a oil spray on the cookie sheet and then a light spray over top instead of tossing in oil.
The butternut squash recipe was a little hit and miss but that was mainly because I sliced all of my squash too thin. I think next time I would do them thicker and maybe lower the temp a bit.
I thought I would try and get a pretty picture of my beet chips.
I took out all my bestest chips and stacked them up,
put a cutting board behind to eliminate all the background "noise"
and right as I picked up my camera it fell on my pretty posed chips.
Then I quickly brushed the crumbs into my hand and shoved them in my mouth.
What did you try this week?
