Funny Friend!

Well it was my birthday on Saturday and I sent a smart arsed text to a friend of mine it went something like this :

“FYI my birthday is on Saturday and I love receiving cards and gifts such as flowers, chocolate or red convertibles LOL!”

Today my good friend “Deborahh from the Cona Stoa” gave me my gift………….


The post it says ” You said you liked receiving cards”


And Flowers (Best I could do)


and chocolate


Drink this and imagine your car is red with no top on it HA HA HA


This is one of the most thoughtful gifts I have received 😀 😀

I must return the favor on December 4th when Ms. Deb turns 50!!!!!!

Baked Root Vegetable Chips

2 carrots

2 parsnips

1 yam

1 rutabaga

1 turnip

Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Spray 2 baking sheets with cooking spray. I used a mandolin to slice very thin chips, you can use a knife or food processor. Lay the chips onto the sheets and spray with more cooking spray and sprinkle with salt. Cook for 10 minutes, check and remove smaller chips if browning, flip the rest and cook for another 5 minutes. Remove and let cool for a few minutes before eating.

This one looks really pretty with Lotus root!
