Addition to the family, and the best time of day!

Sooo...we've added to our family yet again...

Her name is Lulu Teshua. (Teshua means deliverance, deliverance by God through a human agency)

Isn't she soo cute?!

My hubby found her at work, malnourished, alone, being literally eaten alive by fleas. He called me to come pick her up-to either take to a shelter, or to home. We decided to take her home and find a good home for her. I took her to TAGS-the local shot animal clinic- to get her checked out. The Dr there wasn't sure if she'd even survive the weekend, because of how low on blood she was. He gave her a flea med then and there, and we watched as literally ten or more fleas jumped off her after the med's went on her. She came home, got a bath, got oral med's to increase the production of blood, and has been in solitary confinement since then to prevent the spread of fleas. Now she's lively, flea-free thanks to her med's, has survived THREE bath's, has an amazingly voracious appetite, and loves attention.

We already found her a good home.


We had both said that our limit is 3 kitties until we move. But TBG fell in love with her, as did I, and so now we have more motivation to move. So note this everyone- WHEN WE MOVE NEXT YEAR, IT WILL BE BECAUSE WE HAVE MORE FELINES, NOT BECAUSE OF PREGNANCY!!! That being said, I can now say I'm happy to have our new family member, and on to the food part of today!

I'll admit I've been wanting waffles. I figured out a good pancake recipe, but waffles, oh waffles! The crunch of the waffle, and the softness of it's innards. The delightful nooks and crannies, just perfect for holding my butter and syrup. The texture and taste and warmth of that first bite. Mmmm... Yes, I enjoy my breakfast. Waffles, with some scrambled eggs and bacon, yummy! But alas, for I could not find a waffle recipe that I could have.

Until now.

Baby, oh baby, these are good! Everything that TBG and I could ask for in a waffle. Texture. Crunch and softness. Flavor. And healthy! Yes, life is good and we are living very blessed lives!

I made a full batch, which gave me 8 squares total. We each had 2 squares, and are saving the last 4 for tomorrow's breakfast. Yay for frozen waffles! ^_^

Never say no.

1 1/4 cup gluten free Bette Hagman mix (see below)

1/4 cup almond meal
1 tbsp flax seed meal
2 tsp baking powder
1 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp salt
1 tbsp coconut sugar
2 eggs, separated
1 cup almond milk
3 tbsp coconut oil
1/2 tsp vanilla extract

  1. Sift together the dry ingredients, and mix them up a bit.
  2. Add all the wet ingredients together-minus the egg whites. Allow it to gel a bit. (flax seed will do this naturally, do not be alarmed!)
  3. Beat the egg whites in a separate bowl, until the fluffy peaks form.
  4. Carefully fold in the egg whites, and stir gently until fully incorporated.
  5. Pour batter onto hot waffle iron and bake as normal.
  6. Enjoy!
We loved these. The only difficulty? Kinda high carb and calorie-230 calories and 20 carbs each square. >_< Fortunately, they taste amazing enough for it to be worthwhile. ^_^ Pour on your favorite syrup, slather on your favorite butter, or top with your favorite fruit! Breakfast is a lovely time of day, isn't it?

** The flour mix recipe**

2 parts white rice flour
2/3 part potato starch
1/3 part tapioca starch

You can make a whole bunch of this and store in the pantry or fridge. ^_^
