Good Morning! I hope you’re having a great weekend! We had an action packed Saturday that started with…pancakes!
Dane decided to make up his own recipe and came up with these.
Coconut Flour & Applesauce Pancakes
- 1/4 cup + 1 tbsp coconut flour
- 1/2 cup unsweetened applesauce
- 1/2 tsp baking soda
- 1/2 tsp apple cider vinegar
- 1 tbsp honey
- 1/4 cup blueberries
Mix all ingredients together and pour into skillet over medium high heat.
These were really good! Not quite as dense as the pancakes we tried a couple of weeks ago. We topped ours with a little bit of maple syrup.
After breakfast we made our weekly trip to the farmers market. I didn’t take a picture of our entire haul but the strawberries were especially good this week.
When we got back home, I measured a pound of almonds for homemade almond milk.
According to the directions I had to soak the almonds in water for 10-12 hours.
More news on that later.
For lunch, both of us tried buffalo for the first time!
Dane made burgers topped with onions & mushrooms along with tomatoes and leftover Velvety Butternut Squash.
I don’t know if it was just the way that Dane made the burgers or if buffalo really tastes different but this lunch was amazing!
After lunch we realized that we needed to go Love Whole Foods for a few things so we ran out again.
We don’t have a Whole Foods Market near us, so this is the next best thing. I found some almond butter that didn’t have a bunch of weird ingredients.
And I had half of this Kombucha.
Since we were out and about we decided to stop at Ross to look for a pair of jeans because both of us need a smaller size now. In February, I bought a pair of jeans from Bealls that were size 14 and yesterday I bought a size 10!!!
They’re a little bit snug but they fit!! Very exciting. Dane refused to try his on and and the pair he bought still ended up being too big. Men! haha
For dinner we had chicken sausage with onions and peppers.
After dinner, I got ready and went to church with Kim and Kim.
And then we met up with some friends at the Daytona Cubs game. It was in the low 60’s but it was extremely windy, so us wussy Floridians were freezing!
When we got home from the game I drained my almonds and was ready to make my almond milk. I threw them in my blender with 3 cups of water and hit start!
I don’t have a great blender, it’s your typical $20 deal from the WalMart. Making smoothies was even challenging if I used ice or frozen fruit but I was determined to make almond milk.
It didn’t take long for me to notice a very strange smell coming from the blender. I removed the glass from the base and sure enough – it was smoking!! Bye bye blender. The good news is, it worked long enough to make the milk.
The milk went in the fridge to cool but I did take a little sip and really liked it! I’m going to make almond meal with the leftover pulp. I did use a nut milk bag since Kristen recommended it and I can see how that was much easier than trying to use cheesecloth.
And that was our Saturday.
