My Husband is AWESOME-and bought me a dehydrator

Hello Again!

This weekend, Andrew and I went to Bed Bath & Beyond to spend the last of our wedding store credit. Last time we went, I got a blender. This time, I got a dehydrator!!! Hooray!!! Andrew couldn't think of anything he wanted more than an iron (which we got) so he was fine with spending even MORE of our wedding money on raw food cooking tools! What a sweety. No beer kegerator for him--he is fine with dehydrators, blenders, food processors, hand mixers, upping the food budget, etc. so that I can do the raw thing. What a sweetie! I love my husband...for more reasons than him letting me buy stuff, but also because he lets me buy stuff! Hooray!

So, the first thing I did was get some flax seeds out and attempted some kind of raw cracker!

I know, it looks like a pizza or something, right? Well, these crackers actually have a pizza taste! I used one cup of flax seeds, about a cup of grape tomatoes, and half a red pepper. I threw in some basil and oregano. Oh, I also did a tiny dab of garlic. They taste awesome! Like pizza, I'm telling you! It took a tad bit longer than I would have liked because I used this clear plastic insert so that the crackers didn't smash through those holes--and the bottom didn't dry! So, I had to flip them over. onto the tray after about 5 hours. 

my first dehydrator experience :*)

On another note, I purchased a biodegradable (you can plant them right in the ground for transplanting!!!) "greenhouse seed starter" from a local co-op here in town. I grabbed some organic habanero seeds and PLANTED. I am SO excited for the salsa and raw hot sauce I will make here in the near future! :) :) :)

More on the organic garden to come!

Haha, Lenny, yeah I can see how the crackers would look like an old sweater! They certainly don't taste like one (I hope)! :) Have a great day Lenny! And EW about the fish eye! :P
