you will enjoy the okra!  

 

Indeed!  I'm snacking on some at the moment.  Nuts.com comes through again.

 

Now where could I put a freeze drier?

I recommend a location close to the sputter coater you'll need for your SEM so you can save space by figuring a way to use the same vacuum pump for both applications.

I roasted the surprisingly large seeds from the delicata squash I did yesterday. Just a 20 minute soak in super salty water, dried off and roasted till well done.

I've had the tiramisu loacker and I am not impressed. The coconut and chocolate versions remain my favorite No sign of the berry flavored wafers.

 Some people snack on Oreos. Some people snack on Ben & Jerry’s but I open my refrigerator just now having a bad case of the munchies and spotted the parsnips. :DD3F39FAE-07D0-48B9-9D90-24C154DD427D.thumb.jpeg.8edb8e8459880a95041d25112ebd2c50.jpeg

Well they are sweet!  Especially when cooked to a point where they get crispy.

 

But they are fantastic.

 

My BIL does them every year at Christmas glazed with honey and baked till caramelized.

I would surmise, in an oven.... ;):P

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Sorry, couldn't help myself! 

 

375-400 until fork tender/golden.  Convection helps.

 Tossed in some oil with salt pepper and roasted in the Breville  Smart oven at 425°F until they looked done to me probably about 30 minutes. I tossed them around a few times while they were roasting.

I was paging through Six Seasons, with an eye towards healthy, vegetable options to try in the new year when I spied a note under a recipe for Frico in the basic intro section, suggesting they be offered as a snack with Champagne. 

I just happened to have a big wedge of Parmesan AND some leftover bubbles in the fridge.

Excellent snack.  Obviously I still need to work on the vegetable thing xD!

You OBVIOUSLY need to work on left over bubbles.  It would be a shame if bubbles go flat ;)

And here I thought I was completely out of nuts.  Last night I was reduced to sunflower spawn and Mississippi punch.  A few moments ago I found an unopened one pound bag of nuts.com Virginia Jumbo Roasted Peanuts (salted).  And there is fresh mint in my mai tai.

Missed breakfast. Most likely will miss lunch. Snacking on some Jarlsberg which I consider to be a perfect snacking cheese and not necessarily good for much else.

Raw veggies from Christmas, left over from the appetizer spread.  With ranch dip.

Today's afternoon snack. (Not the whole jar.)

For my daughter, "not the whole jar" actually means "I didn't take a spatula and scrape the sides."

@chromedomeNot sure what is with our daughters and this stuff.  My oldest daughter had such an addiction to it. She used to take jars of it to the ski hill, and eat while she was riding up the lifts.  Then, she'd stick the jars up in the trees all over the place. When she was teaching ski lessons, she'd tell the kids that Nutella grows on trees. They'd argue, she'd make them a bet she could pick one from a tree...then proceed to ski to a "random" tree, and pluck a jar and spoon right off the tree, and eat it in front of them.
