Once upon a time there was a little girl, Maria, who was the Princess of York. She lived a quiet life on a quiet street with her Mother the Queen. Then one day as she looked out the window she saw a big, white animal walking down the sidewalk in front of her castle.
Maria tells the Queen, Christina, that there is a polar bear walking down the sidewalk. Her mother informs her that there are no polar bears in York. We live to far south for them to be here.
With David having broken his wrist, I have his jobs to do too. This includes the yard work which I don’t really mind. First thing is make sure all the dog poop is picked up. This is really my job anyway. Next is picking up all the limbs that the bad winds blew out of our trees and from the neighbors trees. I am sure they have some of ours too. We are a very sharing neighborhood. This took me a while but I finally got it done. Then came the mowing.
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
I have been making Highbush Cranberry Apple Butter when we are lucky and have the berries. We managed to get quite a few this year and I had people asking for it. I pulled out the recipe and started making it. It was so full of sugar and couldn’t believe it. I thought why can’t I make this Keto friendly. Continue reading “Altering Recipes”
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.

I found this recipe The “I Love My Instant Pot” Keto Diet Recipe Book written by Sam Dillard of HeyKetoMama.com. There are some very good recipes in here I want to try. You can buy the book by clicking on the link below.
We had left over roast and I was really thinking about a roast sandwich. I looked in some of my cookbooks and found a recipe. I have to admit it is really easy to make keto bread because there is no kneading or waiting for it to rise. I mixed it together, baked it and let it cool. It was not very thick, so we actually cut it the other way to make the sandwich. It was very filling. I can’t believe I actually quit too when I was full.
Here is the recipe if you want to try it:
6 eggs (room temperature)
1/2 cup Flaxseed meal – I had flaxseeds so I just ground them
1 cup sifted coconut flour
1 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon baking powder
1 tablespoon apple cider vinegar
Preheat oven to 350 and grease bread pan
Mix dry ingredients together. Add eggs and vinegar mix well. Put into pan. It will be thick. Bake for 40 minutes. Remove from oven and let cool. Remove from pan and serve.
I was at the chiropractor today and was talking to Jen. She asked if I had read what you commented on my post yesterday. I told her I hadn’t because I had not been online all day. I was trying complete something I had started. I was trying not to go round and round. So Jen and I are talking and she is telling me get a notebook and write down everything you want to do in that day. As you mark things off you don’t look at what you didn’t get done but what you did. You start really feeling good about yourself. She had learned that at one of her other jobs and still does it. In fact, the were getting some remodeling done and she was having to do everything old school. She was writing everything down she had to do and was happily checking them off as she did them.
When we left we stopped to pick up a few groceries, a file box (for choir music), and a notebook. I started writing everything down I wanted to accomplish today. I didn’t get everything done but I did make a dent which made me feel great. This is going to be another one of my life changing moves. I hope I keep it up because I think it is the best idea I had heard in a long time. So Thank You, Jen!
For those of you that are falling my diet I just want to say I am still doing good. I still have not minded this Keto diet at all so far. We will see how I feel in a month, but I will keep you posted. We are going camping this weekend and I am making cauliflower salad, which is like potato salad but with cauliflower instead of potato. It is really good. We can eat that with our sausages cooked over the fire one night. The next night we will have some nice steaks. I haven’t decided about breakfast but I am sure it will be some kind of eggs, until I can figure out different things to eat.
I am now going to go and check off my blogging on my list!
I guess I forgot to post this one. Oh well, better late than never like they say.
