Brief Description: While it took me 2 hours to chop and assemble this mix of radishes, parsnips, sweet potatoes, onions, and potatoes, the final product was 9 vacuum-sealed freezer-packs of READY MADE hash. I roasted the mixture and bagged it up in 1.5 cup portions. Now, I can easily pull one from the freezer crisp it up in a skillet and top it with a couple of eggs and breakfast is ready!

Mmmmm! Your gyros look delicious! And I can’t believe that’s your first cross stitch. It looks great! I’m jealous that you can work in the car. I get carsick if I don’t pay attention to the road, sadly. You’re very lucky to have that ability :blush:
