CARROT SANDWICHES and my day of penance…

I originally came here to help with my aunt who has advanced Parkinson’s disease.  She still believes that she can use these things, yet she has lived in an assisted living facility for years now and cannot do anything except exist.  Every little thing requires help and loads of time.  Today was slated for going through the craft closet and determine 3 things: keep, throw out (like dried up paints and glues) and donate.  She also wants to go out to lunch (a 3 hour ordeal under the best of circumstances, not to mention she wants McDonalds which I refuse to do) which would prevent us from accomplishing this all in one day so I decided to have lunch prepared in advance.

8 ounces cream cheese, softened
1 large carrot, grated
1/2 cup minced pecans or walnuts
1 teaspoon garlic salt
1 tablespoon mayonnaise
sliced cucumber
oatnut bread

  • In a food processor process carrot until fine pieces.
  • Add cream cheese and process until well blended.
  • Add mayonnaise, garlic salt and walnuts and process again until well blended.
  • Chill overnight.
  • Spread mixture on oatnut bread and arrange cucumbers on top.
  • Enjoy.

I can’t believe you wouldn’t take your aunt to Mc Donalds…:P

Of course if you put this in front of her I’m sure she changed her mind!
