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!

Changes After Staying at Home

Funny Story: Sometimes when someone looks at your picture and they notice something different the way you look that your appearance is different from the time they last saw you and when you stay home in your house for so many months they see something right away that you may not see. What they see is your hair is longer because you have no source in having it cut and your friends realize that the hair style looks good on you. Your friend tells you not to have it cut when it is time to come out and explore. What my mom notice is that I have some make up on my face so my mom had questioned my new profile picture. My Mom : Wow! Nice make up! Guess you enjoy staying home! Me : Yes I am so bored staying at home nothing else to do. My Mom : I don’t want to put make up on because no one sees me here. Me : I prefer to put make up on because I have video calls from my friends I don’t want to look like I didn’t take a bath. My Mom : I don’t blo

Social Distance

Life is boring so we find other things to do if we can’t go out why not call your friend up and have a video call and drink together but in our own homes. We may want to spend time with our friends but since we’re not allowed to we find other ways to spend time with our friends. Yann wanted me to drink and she was the only girl in the house she was at and she asked, me do you have an alcohol to drink with me. I said, yes I do so we started toasting each other by taking our pictures during our conversation. I was in charge of taking our picture during our call. Toward the end I couldn’t finish my bottle I was already red I am not a drinker so I always cannot finish one bottle. Yann told me she will attend a barbecue and she said, I am inviting you to come along I said, sure so another video call will take place during that time. No matter if you cannot be with your friends there are always a video call away so if you are feeling lonely and want to go o

Jail from Home

I can’t seem to wait until I get released from my jail home that makes us eat the same food every day and we wake up in odd hours as we have a guard outside to check out if we are in our room. We wake up awkward hours not like we have anything to do. Our hair has sprouts and we want to have it cut but all we do is keep having it keep growing. We look at our pictures of the outside world and keep crossing out the days until we can go out and be paroled soon we’ll be released. We have a list of places and places to eat when the time comes and we are released from our jail home. There will no longer be a violation under our name because our name is already cleared. One day the key is there to see the world how we miss so much for the two months in jail home we are home sick but not from our home but from the life outside.

Friendships Begins to Change

As we are staying home we come across friends who you haven’t chat or communicated for a long time and when they start chatting with you they come across giving you not your name but a name they are suppose to give their boyfriend/girlfriend or spouse not really meant for a friend. I have come across this recently and I have seen people get really lonely when they stay home and they are bored to death but they have spouses in their home but when you come across a friend calling you baby. I start to question them who are you referring to baby you know for sure that is not your name. As I am talking to my friends I will stop them question them hey I am not your baby and I don’t like being called a baby in the first place. I have a name and I’d rather stick to it. Sometimes you need to put a stop on your friendship it might lead to something else that you don’t see yourself in that direction. I’ve notice these past weeks how my friends are reacting how they start to cli

Today someone had asked for a friend request and I am not the type of person who adds people easily I need to know who you are especially if your social media is not using an actual name. Sometimes you need to test them ask so many questions until you figure out the person you are talking too and through that always check their profile see if they have friends listed or f
