Easy Carrot Fries Recipe for Air Fryer

People say carrots are for rabbits.  Carmina decided to make her carrots the healthy way. Easy Carrots Fries for Air Fryer Ingredients: 2 - Pieces of Carrots (washed, peel and slice into thin slices) Olive Oil Garlic Powder Preparing: Add the olive oil and garlic powder let it sit for twenty minutes to absorb on both sides of the carrots. Cooking: Place it on your tray of your air fryer making sure there is space.  Cook in the setting what is instructed for fries. I cooked mine for ten minutes no need to turn it over. I had to use the air fryer two times since there wasn't room to fill the whole tray. Dipping Sauce: Honestly, I prefer ranch dressing since didn't have it available just used ketchup of course depending on your preference. NOTE: Carmina is not selling or advertising for ingredients to make carrot fries. Subscribe & follow @ Carmina Lifestyle  a place to look, discover and share. Thank you for your support!

Birthday for Love Ones

Although you are in heaven we still celebrate your birthday because we wish you are here on this special day. Yesterday it was my Lola’s birthday she would have been one hundred plus years old. We would always cook pancit to feed everyone in the house. To us even if she is not with us in our spirit and memories remain with us. There are some people who celebrate their love ones when they have already left us. We set a prayer gather with family and friends. We light up a candle to enlighten their spirits to wish them a happy birthday. We visit their grave site and bring food and flowers to have a picnic and talk to them with our family and friends. This way even if they are not next to us we still get to spend time with each other. This is how we show how much we love and gratitude our loves ones mean to us.
