|I think I'm at the point where I don't even know where to begin. The past couple of weeks have been really bizarre for me. I haven't had a computer in weeks due to some hard drive issues which put my computer in the shop and then we had crazy power outages due to heavy storms and then I went out of town for a girls weekend with my grandmother. So, that leads me to here...
I have been practicing letting things go the past couple of weeks. My work depends a lot on me having a computer and I don't like being so disconnected that I open my email and realize that people have been trying to get in touch with me. It was a little stressful, but things are back up and running so we are good to go. I missed keeping in touch with my friends too! I realize blogging is not the most important thing in the world, but I like catching up with my blog friends. Being disconnected is one thing, but people get a little freaked out when you disappear too long. Thank you to everyone that checked in on me. It really means so much to know that people care about you and get concerned when you aren't around!
This past weekend was a complete girls weekend for me and boys weekend for my guys. I escaped to Raleigh, NC to visit my most amazing grandmother!
My little granny is such a bright spot in my life and we enjoyed an entire weekend of pjs, movies (love stories! - British version of Pride and Prejudice was definitely watched), fresh fruits, fresh vegetables and tons of great conversation! I know, we like to play on the wild side!
It has been far too long since I saw her last and I will not let that happen again! Life is too short not to spend it with the ones you love!
I also discovered how much alike my granny and I are...more so than I thought. She has the yellow version of my blue retro bowls! I felt so at home eating from my favorite salad bowl. I know I'm crazy, but I have my favorite dishes that I use over and over for certain things. I know Kristin
There has also been some playing in the kitchen. Not much, but a little...
I started playing around with my socca recipe. I added oats, egg and baking powder for fun to see what would happen. So, guess what happened? A fluffier, crisper version of socca
happened. This comes together so quickly and it was exactly what I needed!
I made a bigger batch for pizza too!
Peppers, tomato, onion and fresh basil from my garden (just the basil from my garden, but I'm working on the rest)!
The great thing about this recipe is that you use equal portions depending on how big you want the flat bread, to it's really simple!
1/3 cup quick oats
1/3 cup chickpea flour
1/2 tsp baking powder
1/4 tsp salt
pepper (to taste)
1/4 tsp onion powder
1/3 cup egg whites
1/3 cup water
1 TBSP apple cider vinegar
Preheat the oven to 425 degrees. Spray a bread pan with olive oil.
Combine the dry ingredients and then add the wet. Stir to combine. Pour the batter into prepared pan and bake for 20 to 25 minutes.
I love it crispy so I baked it a little longer. Go for the 20 minutes if you're going to top it and eat it pizza style. I went with half cup measurements for the pizza and baked it in a 9 inch cake pan.
