Organic Snacks for friends and pets

At night, the kitchen and the dehydrator have been "humming". This year I wanted to give organic gifts to my friends. I'm still working on crazy quilt sleep masks! The basil sun-dried tomatoes are  the best, even eaten by themselves. I made organic dog treats in three different sizes for the smallest of dogs and for friends' larger dogs.  Jack would sleep beneath the oven and he ate his share of broken dog treats. Finally, after years of searching for the best organic granola recipe, I've found it! The cashew kale chips simply vanish. I add a bit of red pepper. There  is always kale in the dehydrator. The apple chips are flavored with ginger and lemon juice. And the fragrance from the lemongrass bath salts and the Eucalyptus/Patchouli shower disks, wafts through the downstairs while I mix up different batches in the kitchen. If you would like the url for the essential oil site, pls leave a comment!  Place one of the disks in the bottom of the shower, in the water stream. The fragrance of Eucalyptus and Patchouli fills the shower ~ the perfect way to start the morning, especially if you feel a cold coming on.
