Brewery Hopping

David had to take me to Hershey, PA for my last doctor appointment on my left thumb.  After surgery, a cast for 5 weeks, a brace and 6 weeks of therapy I have been released to go out and cause trouble.  To celebrate we decided to check out a few breweries in town.

First stop was Rotunda brewery and it was lunch time.  We were starving by this time, so perfect place for lunch.

We were told that because of Covid-19 you have to buy food with your beer. I guess it is to keep people from over crowding or maybe because if you have to eat something you won’t stay as long which will allow more people a chance to come in.  Anyway we didn’t care we were ready for lunch.  Since we did plan to hit a couple of more places decided to eat small.

It was nice inside and the beer was good.

The food was nice.  I had deviled eggs which were great.  David thought he would go with the pretzel.  I don’t believe it went with the small taste he was hoping for.

We said good bye to Rotunda Brew Pub; we did find out that the owners last name is Rotunda.

Birch Benders

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!

Beer Tasting

As the day went on our sun started to get covered by clouds.  As the people arrived we were deciding where to have the beer tasting, inside or outside.  We finally decided on eating inside and drinking by the fire pit.

I took my brisket off the pit. It had been smoking for 7 to 8 hours.  It looked beautiful.

Keto Bread Loaf

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:

Ingredients:

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.

Give it a try you might like it. We did!
