Getting Fit For Fun- No. 9

Graeme Howell's blog charting his epic struggle to walk 5k.......no going back

I've been eating crisps, yummy crisps. I've eaten crisps on Saturday and on I've eaten crisps on Sunday. My life has become significantly crispier.   Hmmm, I may need to start this blog again.

Take 2.  I've bought a mandoline and everything is now very thinly sliced.  I must confess I like crisps and miss munching them on a lazy Saturday afternoon.  I've been intrigued by the idea of home made sweet potato crisps but my knife skills are not up to slicing - hence the mandoline.

What a fantastically crunchy weekend I have had.  The sweet potato crisps were amazing, flavoured with a paprika and pepper mix. Parsnips were great with just a little salt and pepper. The only disaster has been my attempt at apple crisps, but I'll keep experimenting.  A friend keeps recommending kale crisps - but I don't think I'm hipster enough to pull it off.

So registration is open, I've signed up for the MYH walk - eek. I'm properly committed now. To be honest I probably crossed that line a few weeks ago what with telling everyone I was going to do it and writing this blog. But I now have a registration number.  I'm hoping to raise more money to support MYH's work and if you're so inclined you can sponsor me here. But more importantly come and join me as we yomp around Cunningsburgh!

Recipe for Sweet potato crisps (though calling this a recipe is probably overstating it)

1 thinly sliced sweet potato or parsnip

Whatever flavour you fancy

Lay the slices on a baking tray and add flavour.  Pop into a preheated oven at 125 degrees. After an hour flip the slices and bake for 1 more hour. Remove from the oven and consume!!
