THE GARDEN

Microwave Potato Chips

Slice Potato slices 1/16 thick

Cover a micro-wave plate with
paper towels (at least 2)

Brush potato slices with olive
oil on both sides and then
lightly salt them

Place slices on top of paper
towels on plate not overlapping

Microwave on each side for
about 2 1/2 minutes.  Let cool
for a minute.

Do the same with sweet
potatoes.  Lightly salt them.  If
you prefer you can add a little
brown sugar about 15 seconds
before the last  2 1/2 minute
session is complete.  I like the
sugar to be melted.

Both are delicious, more
healthy and less expensive
than bagged chips!  A great
snack.

Vegetarian BLT Sandwich

Use "MORNING STAR
VEGETARIAN BACON STRIPS"
instead of the other kind

It really tastes just like bacon
but is made from Tofu.  It
makes a delicious BLT
sandwich but is healthier for
you and doesn't hurt an
innocent animal.

All you have to do is put the
strips on a microwave plate and
cook for about a minute
depending on how many you
want.  

It's easy and delicious!

You can buy the Morning Star
products at most grocery
stores now.
