I’m so glad to have a few more days of vacation before I have to head back to work on Monday. Not being in a routine has made me feel a bit lazy though… I had a bunch I wanted to do today but didn’t really get around to it.
I was super glad to throw together a quick, easy and healthy dinner in no time using a little something I picked up at one of the wineries we visited in Chelan.
I cooked some brown rice pasta and threw in a few handfuls of spinach in the boiling water for the last minute right before straining it. Next I heated up half the jar of artichoke walnut pasta sauce with a left over crumbled hamburger Jacob made a few days ago (so glad he made extra!). Tossed it all together – amazing 🙂
Dessert even made an appearance tonight too and in a new way.
At this cute little book store attached to Starbucks in Chelan I picked up this book:
There are so many yummy looking recipes to try out that use a dehydrator. Lucky me I’m borrowing one from my parents right now!
Tonight I planned to make the almond-cranberry thumbprint cookies. The recipe called for dried cranberries, but I didn’t have any on hand so I used dries cherries. These were so simple. The few ingredients were flaxseed, oats, dried cherries, dried figs, almond butter and orange juice. Pretty healthy cookie ingredients, eh?
After 2 hours Jacob, my little bro Trevor and I tried them out. Verdict… soft and fruity. I’m going to let them dehydrate a bit more to get a little crunch action. I can’t wait to see how other recipes in my new book turn out!
I plan to get a nice longer run in tomorrow morning rain or shine I’m getting out there!
Question: Do you have a dehydrator? What do you like to make with it?
