As in I am only one and a half days from 10 days off. And I am itchin' to go. Now. I am also trying to keep my expectations reasonable - very difficult for me, given 10 whole glorious days stretching ahead. Oh, the possibilities!!
Some things lined up are: getting more memory put in my laptop (a creaky old Dell that I won't part with), celebrating Sylvie's birthday (late), putting up the final panel in the guest bathroom (only four years late), clean chicken coop, clean goat barn, finish planting garden, send Acacia and Banyan off to their new home in NH.
Since "Delly" will be at the computer clinic, there may be a missed Monday Musings. Never fear - I continue to muse and will pick up the beat the following Monday. And just to bring this week to a perfect end - it has been completely hellish - they are predicting frost tonight and tomorrow morning. Of course they are. I mean, why not? It only got up to near 80 degrees yesterday. Why wouldn't we expect frost tonight? I drip sarcasm.
For Nancy, here is the recipe for the brown rice flour pancakes:
Rice Flour Pancakes
Adapted from The Whole Life Nutrition Cookbook
1 Cup brown rice flour
1/4 Cup tapioca flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 teaspoon Nathan gum
1/4 teaspoon sea salt
1-1/2 Cup milk (any kind will do - soy, hemp, rice, etc.)
2 Tablespoons melted virgin coconut oil
1 Tablespoon agave nectar
Mix dry ingredients together in a medium bowl. You can make a big batch and put it in a jar to use as a mix. In a separate bowl, whisk the wet ingredients together. Add wet ingredients to dry and mix gently.
Heat a medium skillet (I always use cast iron) and add a little coconut oil or butter. Once heated, pour about a 1/2 cup of batter and cook until bubbles rise and break on surface of pancake. Flip over and cook a minute or two. Continue to use all the batter. This made about 7-8 medium sized pancakes. I froze the leftovers.
