What I want to talk about now is what our life has been like in the last year. In a matter of a year since I started my blog I have lived in two countries, and two states in our own country. It may not seem like a lot (or it might actually be a lot - I dont know these days!), but to me it just seems like our life cant settle down. I am learning that this is the life of an animator's wife. And it has made me realize that I have the most perfect job, especially being married to an animator. I just have no idea when our life is going to require us to up and move somewhere else, and I cant just be leaving a job when I make a commitment, and it is very hard looking for short time jobs all the time. It just made me realize that I have been very blessed with finding my passion that works out so well with my husband's ever changing working industry.
I found my passion by accident, but it was really a blessing in disguise.
Now lets talk about these apple chips. They are so incredibly easy to make, but they do take a very long time to bake, so make sure you have the time to do something else in the meantime.
The good thing about baking for three hours - yeah you heard me right - is that the flavor is really locked into each chip that when you are eating one chip, it tastes like you have eaten a whole apple. It is so good and a really great and healthy snack to take on the go. Trust me, youll love these chips! Having these will definitely make up for all the food you and I are planning to stuff in our mouths in less than a week. :)
makes about 30-40 chips
- 1-2 apples, to preference
- 1 Tbsp sugar
- 1 tsp cinnamon
- Preheat the oven to 200F/93C
- Wash the apples and slice them using a mandolin or a very sharp knife, leaving the skin on. Be careful not to cut your fingers. You want the slices to be very thin. Discard the seeds.
- Line a couple cookie sheets with parchment paper, and lay out the apples in a single layer on the cookie sheets. Dont overlap.
- Mix the sugar and cinnamon in a small bowl and sprinkle over the apple slices.
- Bake the apples for 1 hour and then flip over, and continue to bake another hour or two until the apples are completely dry.
- Enjoy :)
