Wednesday! People, it's hump day! If we get over today, the rest is all down hill from here! Things have been busy around here. I can't complain though. It's all good crazy. Tony's first issue of Batman was published and he's working on more as we speak! He's on crunch time, so you know that means crazy time hits our house. No worries, we are good under pressure! It's all about the teamwork here!
I hope everyone had a great Thanksgiving. There was a slight issue that almost caused our company not to make it to our house, but they made it Thanksgiving morning and we had an amazing visit! I spent so much time in the kitchen (which I love!) and when I wasn't in the kitchen, we were watching Christmas movies and chatting it up...and the girls painted their nails! I never get girl time so this was so much fun!
I pulled the camera out once for a slice of pie the day after Thanksgiving. I kind of regret not taking pictures of the kids more, but the weather was so amazing that they were all over the place. I'm glad they are old enough to do there own thing and really enjoy time with each other. That's really what the holidays are all about anyway.
Let's just say that I'm really embracing all that is instagram (I'm at stshasteen) these days due to the craziness! I'm addicted and will go ahead and apologize for my new addiction. Speaking of addictions...do you remember my flatbread addiction (here here here)? Well, I've been playing with my recipe again. The recipe is really forgiving and the possibilities are endless...just ask Heather. I will use this as my protein source a lot of nights so I played with the recipe to incorporate a higher amount of protein to suite my needs. Seriously, the taste and texture of bread loaded with protein and fiber! Yes please! The bread really is fluffy on the inside while nice and crispy on the outside. Perfect for a flatbread sandwich! I will load pictures to my Facebook page since I can't do it here...I need to figure that out, but for now. I will share my newest version of flatbread!
Chickpea Quinoa Oat Flatbread
1/4 cup chickpea flour
1/4 cup quinoa flour (you can use more chickpea flour, but the quinoa flour is really nice here)
1/4 cup quick oats (or oat flour or ground whole oats)
1 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 cup egg whites
1/4 cup carbonated water (key to fluffiness)
1 TBSP apple cider vinegar (a must, it adds more fluffiness)
Preheat the oven to 450 degrees. Spray a 9x5 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 15 to 20 minutes.
***I used Bob's Red Mill for all the flours
