I finally scrubbed my bathroom down really well. I have ceramic tile with WHITE grout and this is not easy to clean or keep clean. I found some magic cleaner and am excited to see white again.
I have finally organized the boys' closet and dressers, I still had all of the winter stuff in there. How terrible is that. I ferel like I can breeze a little better now since I have 2 area's in my house breathing again.
Oh, for all of you health nuts out there. I have tons of oatmeal and wasn't sure what to make for dinner and was feeling rather lazy to put it honestly. What on earth can you cook in under 30 minutes and healthy? PANCAKES! Pancakes you may say is not healthy. You are right, but I have all this oatmeal and I thought maybe I could just throw it in my pancakes instead of that flour stuff. My best bud Layla was here and it did NOT sound very appetizing to her so she said I better call the Big Sis. Well turns out she had a recipe that she always uses and it is mostly made of oatmeal. They were so yummy and Layla even liked them. so here's how I made them.
First boil 1 1/4 cup water and put in bowl.
then add 2tbsp. honey or maple syrup and stir in 2 cups oatmeal.
Let that set while you mix the rest of the ingredients.
Mix 1 cup flour (you can use some soy or whey protien powder
for part of your flour) then add 2 tsp. baking powder
2 tbsp oil and 2 large eggs a pinch of salt
and about 1-2 tsp vanilla
mix in oatmeal mixture and add 1 1/4 cup milk.
for best cooking results use a flat pancake griddle that is non-stick
at 300-350 degrees. after pouing batter onto the griddle I sprinkled with
bluberries that I had in the freezer from picking last summer. Delicious.
These are now low in gluten and high in fiber and protien, I had 2 pancakes about 4" in diameter and 2 eggs with a about 3 oz of my homemade canned deer and turkey bologna. I know I had my 35 grams of protien and stayed with in my 600 calorie mark for dinner.
Little Mister's doctor visit confirmed that things are healing, slowly but moving towards progress. His bloodwork came back that his Immune system is right where it should be, and no serious abnormalties in the infection level of his body. He has a great appetite now and is playing better than he has for weeks possibly even months. Doctor's say he just drew the wrong straw and so unfortunately he get's sick more than other kids.
I have enjoyed spending a part of my tuesday with you all and will be you you again soon, god Bless, Christina
