If you have followed me at all, you’ll know I’m not – nor have I ever been – a summer lover. I’m usually counting down the days to October first like a child looks forward to Christmas morning. This summer has been no different – except it’s lasted ten times longer than usual.
We’ve had what I’ll call a sort of crisis going on. In fact, Tuesday, will be five weeks. It feels more like a few months. Fortunately, the worst is almost over, though the recovery time for the patient will take a bit longer.
So life has definitely been trying to hand out lemons this summer – but I’ve been refusing the delivery. It’s put a crimp in my plans, and with all the traveling and added stress, I’ve been eating junk I really shouldn’t be eating on the Trim Healthy Mama plan(affiliate link). And, hey! It’s on sale for $4.99 through the end of July 2019! Yay! I just bought it because all I have is the Trim Healthy Table book. Now I need to finish this post and start reading that. 🙂
Anyway, back to those lemons…
I realized that I could let this change in my well laid plans throw me into a total state of chaos – or I could go with the flow. I chose to go with it. No, I haven’t written as much as I’d have liked (but I will be putting out some new short stories before the end of the month). And I’m still trying to eat better than I could if I weren’t trying at all.
In fact, I finally tried out a recipe I’ve been salivating over since I first found it several weeks ago. They’re a savory breakfast ‘cookie.’
Me being me, you know I tweaked it a bit. For one thing, I’m not turning the oven on in the summer so I cooked the whole mixture in a frying pan over low heat – first like scrambled eggs, then like pancakes (3 minutes on one side, then 3 minutes on the other side – after cutting in quarters and flipping)
Because I’m not doing keto, I also replaced a third of the almond flour with unflavored whey protein to cut down on the fat. Next time, I’ll try for half.
It turned out fantastic! Even my picky son and daughter loved it (Aria, however, did not – too much sausage for her). There were enough leftovers for two more mornings – and it warms up great in the microwave. Served with half an apple, it was a perfect breakfast. Looking at the photo though, I have to say it tastes much better than it looks. 🙂
And now, I see it’s six-thirty and I’m wishing I had more of it made up. But I don’t so time to see about a quick supper.
Psst: you might have figured out that the 30 blog posts in 30 days is never going to happen. That’s probably good news though. 😀
