Baked parsnip chips. I’m not sure if parsnips could taste any better. But, really, what vegetable cooked in oil and salt wouldn’t taste pretty good? 😉
Here’s how to make them:
Preheat oven to 425*F and then cut two parsnips into thin “chip-like” pieces (the thinner, the better).
Put parsnip slices into a large mixing bowl and add 3 tablespoons of oil. (I used butter flavor grapeseed oil, but olive oil, peanut oil, sesame oil, etc. would work too.)
Coat slices with oil and then spread evenly on a baking sheet. Sprinkle with sea salt.
Bake for about 15 minutes until edges of parsnip chips turn a golden brown.
Remove tray from oven and transfer chips onto a plate covered with paper towels to absorb the extra oil. Allow to cool before serving.
I have to admit, I like these chips better than regular potato chips. There’s a lot more flavor and the texture is thick, firm, and crispy. Basically, they’re a cross between a French fry and a potato chip. Big fan.
I’m definitely making these for our next get-together. Maybe football this Sunday?
So, I did something very bad today: I dyed my hair. 😕
I know, I know. I’m supposed to be taking better care of my hair after totally abusing it for the past few months, but I couldn’t stand looking at my ugly orange highlights anymore. They were once a lovely golden brown, but using “whatever” shampoo was on sale at CVS completely destroyed them.
I’m pretty sure using an at-home box of dye is the worst thing that I could do to my hair, but at least I used one that is “clinically proven less damaging!” 😉 Let’s hope so! Right now, my hair feels fairly healthy, but we’ll see what happens in the next few weeks.
So, my husband is typically a very observant person. He’s good with the whole “attention to detail” thing, especially with regard to the house, finances, Fantasy Football, video games, small print on coupons, etc. But, when it comes to my hair, he’s totally oblivious. He’ll eventually notice a change, but sometimes it takes him days””even weeks””to notice. Maybe it’s a guy thing?
It’s funny because my sister and my girlfriends notice almost immediately when I change my appearance, especially my hair. My friend, Marie, for instance, notices when I simply blow dry my hair! I guess it’s just a girl thing? 😉
Anyway, I thought it would be fun to guess how long it will take Mal to notice my new hair color. How long do you think it will take him?
