Ever since we have been trying to stay on Keto I have looked for a good pancake recipe. I found the Cream Cheese Pancakes which we liked a lot but they kind of were not the best to take camping. Then one day while in Costco I found something I thought we could try.

As you can see it is Paleo not Keto but I thought we would give it a try. It is high in Carbs but we don’t eat them often. You just add water which makes them great for camping.

I then decided to look on Amazon and see what I could find. I just can’t trust Costco because sometimes they carry something then you never see it again. Well look what I found on Amazon.

Or you can buy the regular and the chocolate chip mixes together and get a better deal

Ok back to the cooking. The pancakes have always risen to look like regular flour pancakes. I had always measured the mix and water out. On this day I didn’t. You need to mix the batter up then let it sit for 5 minutes or until it thickens. It should be pretty thick. Well I put to much water and this is what happens.

Well I had to keep adding mix until I got it just right.

Now you can see the difference once I added enough mix.

As you can see they look a lot better.

I just need to mention my griddle. I wanted a nice grill and found this one at a charity shop. I brought it home and tried it out. I fell in love with it. If you are looking for great griddle look no further.

Just one last thing to say about the pancakes. I made them for our great niece and nephew they loved them.

Be sure to check out my links if you are interested in anything and if you decide to buy something that is even better. Thanks

Well thanks for stopping by!

Can a Chicken Live Without Its Head?

I know that this is a strange question but the saying is, “Running around like a chicken with it’s head cut off.?”  I don’t know if you have ever seen this happen but it is pretty funny.  I have to tell you a little story about this before I continue on with my point I am getting to.

Years ago I had a friend with a bunch of chickens that needed to be butchered.  We had a friend who was a really city girl.  She wanted to help.  Her job was to hold the chicken while I chopped its head off and then she was to hold it over a trashcan to let it bleed out.  Don’t want to have blood all over the yard because that will bring the bears into your yard.

She is holding a chicken as I grab its head and stretch out its neck then chop it off. When the body of the chicken starts wiggling in her hands she drops it and it starts running around.  My other friend and I are laughing so hard we about pee ourselves, which doesn’t take much because we both had a bunch of kids.

Anyway read on to see what my point

41 Pounds of Apples and Counting

David came home with 3 1/2 5 gallon buckets of apples that he picked off a tree that was standing in one of his students front yard.  David is a special education school bus driver. It took him 10 hours to cut and core them all.  He put 3 kitchen garbage bags of apple slices in the freezer.  I had to decide what to do with them. Read on to find out what I do with them.

Keto Energy or Excited Energy

I feel like I really did a lot of today. I just seemed to have so much energy. I know I do have more energy, since I started on this life change.
I started the day off checking my email. Then off to clean the bathroom. I got the towels washed, counter, toilet, and tub cleaned. Then I did the floors.

I knew the boys wouldn’t clean it while I am in Gig Harbor, WA taking care of my daughter, Sarah, after her foot surgery.
