Strawberry Snack

A few days ago I made “fruit leathers” with the sole intention of using up some mashed up squash I had in the fridge. To my delight the apple-squash leather was a “hit”. My daughter loved them! But my little experiment actually gave me an idea. It may have solved a recent problem I have encountered. My daughter loves strawberries. No, that’s not the problem, that’s awesome. In fact, tonight…

It’s also because summer is approaching and I definitely need to go low-carb/slow carb to get ready for swimsuit season. It is also really easy to make. It is not as easy as making pasta, it involves a little more work. However, you get a lot of noodles…
