Meal time has been interesting here.
Basicly I just eat meat, fruit and veggies. Oh and for dressing I use mustard because EVERY dressing has either olive oil or egg yolk or soy in it. I dare you try to find one without any of those ingredients.
I could make one myself. But I don't think about it until I am ready to eat right then and mustard is right there.
So my Dr mentioned that I might try to start adding egg yolk back into my diet just to see how my body reacts. Well actually they said wait a month. But I am not a patient person and I was needing something different to eat.
So the boys and I made my first gluten free food today.
Chocolate chip cookies.
Last week I found some coconut flour on clearance and I had a huge block of chocolate that I found in my pantry. So I just went with it.
Now I have a confession to make. I haven't had a real dessert since I start this lifestyle change. So when I found this big bar of chocolate I was so excited I took a big bite out of it.
Two months with no dessert equals no self control.
Do not linger a brownie in front of my face. You may loose a finger.
You have been fore warned.
So this BIG block of chocolate needed to be broken down.
I enlisted the help of people who love to bang on things.
Luckily they live with me and will do anything I ask when I tell them that there will be cookies.
Yes, the chocolate is in the bottom of the bread bag. I just ran out of bread and thought I would go with it.
So the pounding with the Handy Manny tools didn't work.
I then put the chocolate in a grocery bag and began to pound it on our concrete steps out in front of our house.
Don't you think our neighbors just love us?
I didn't get a picture of this process due to Wild man decided that Romeo's head would work better then the steps.
Sigh, apparently kindness is a virtue I need to work on with the boys.
We then went inside and I started to put the ingredients together.
Then I got some wild hair and said lets make this thing a cookie cake!
See in life it is good to go with the flow and roll with the punches.
In DIYing it is also a good thing to go with the flow and roll with the punches.
In baking it is NOT good the go with the flow and roll with the punches.
I didn't know that gluten free cookies are drier. Therefore making a gluten free cookie cake makes for just a really big dry, I need to drink something after every bit just so I do not choke on it type of cookie.
Not to mention, it is really ugly.
And the top and bottom where burnt. The picture doesn't show that very well.
Luckily the boys love it but since they too haven't had a dessert in two months I think they would have eaten brussel sprouts if I coated them in chocolate.
Don't worry I will stick with my projects and stay away from baking.
Oh and I had a stomach ache after eating it. So here goes another month before we add egg yolk back.
