Save Your Skins

Brad is adapting well to his house-wifely duties in my illness. Tonight he created a salad, his very own, including the dressing. We saved the apple peel shavings from our apple sauce extravaganza, and from this, the salad was born. Deeeeelicious!

Sadly, I could not eat this beauty of a salad, only put a small bite in my mouth and then spit it out. Quite a taste test! It has been two torturous days now of watching Brad eat yummy meals next to me while I spoon liquid or mushed food into mouth and swallow. I'm actually getting used to it . . .

* combine 2 cups, loosely-packed, apple peel strips with 1 tablespoon of butter, broken into small pieces, on a baking tray. Bake at 400˚ for 20 minutes or until crsipy, stirring frequently.
