This weather is kind of funny here, one day it is nice and sunny, the next cooler and rain. I got a feeling this summer is going to be like that. I think will be a cooler summer too. Saturday was beautiful but had to work. I have Sunday off but rained. It seems it been doing that. I get the day off the weather not been too nice to go outside and do something. It is nice, of course, I got to work.

We are so short at the health center, I only get Sunday off. It was funny the new girl asked me, why I was working every Saturday, I told her they keep scheduling me to. It is funny how she picked up on it too that I am working all the time. Not that I mind it, but there are others I noticed they whine a little and they get days off, I ask I don’t because they got the days off. I am also a worker too, so cold be why, but I also know that the person doing the schedule doesn’t like to cause waves, so she caters to the other girls. I will admit I am getting very exhausted from working so much. I like to have more just 1 weekend off a month.

I mentioned I got a box of things I have never used before in my last recipe. Well, the Sunchokes was one those items. I never even heard of these things. Luckily for me, my GBF, who loves to cook like me, knew what they were. He gave me a ton of ideas. You can eat these raw, use in salads, they actually very versatile. Jerusalem artichoke, like as it is also known as, is a species of sunflower. They got this sweet, nutty taste to them.I decided I wanted to a baked chip recipe. I can not describe the taste but they do have a good one. So I went on the way of a potato chip. From what I understand, these are very healthy for you. So that is what I did, let me tell you these are very addicting!

    This is such a unique way to use sunchokes, I love it! Usually you mostly see soup, which is great of course, but it’s nice to know there’s another way to eat them. Thanks!
