Vinegar is a good thing to put on a burn!

with one comment

I burned the you know what out of my finger last night. I was making a chocolate  toffee bar recipe. I got the recipe here….http://pitterpatteroflosingpounds.blogspot.com/2008/08/chocolate-toffee-bar.html. Anyway, my finger hurt so bad. I did a search on burns and I read that you could put vinegar on a burn to lessen the pain. I thought, what the heck…I’m already hurting pretty bad, what do I have to lose? Well, it worked like a charm. It took all the pain away. I couldn’t believe it. I just poured some vinegar on my burn and the pain pretty much instantly went away. WOW!
 
Back to the chocolate toffee bar recipe. I think this bar will be really good in some ice cream!!
 
I found DiabetiSweet at HEB plus today!! Both kinds.  I have a couple of recipes I want to try (mini pecan pie tarts). YUM.
 
Happy Friday and yippee it’s a 3 day weekend.

1 tbsp. vanilla davinci’s
1 scoop chocolate protein powder
2 drops sweetzfree (optional-to taste)
5 drops capella chocolate macadamia nut flavoring (optional)

1st Day of School

leave a comment »

School has officially started and I’m a little tired this evening.  We had a quick dinner of Chili Dogs-mine without the bun! I made another batch of those yummy snack/ power bars to take to school for a snack. I’m waiting for my vanilla ice cream to freeze, so we can have some of the brownies I made "a la Mode".
 
I did a really dumb thing this morning. I accidentally took both my husband’s and my blood pressure medication. I got my diuretic and Danny’s blood pressure medicine mixed up–I guess I was in too much of a hurry this morning. Danny came downstairs and looked at his pills I had laid out for him and he said, "I don’t take a blue pill."   That’s when I said the sh….. word and said, "now I’ve done it". I called my Dr. and he just laughed at me and I told me I was going to live!!

Yummy Brownies

with 2 comments

 I made brownies!! I had to try out my coconut flour I bought at Whole Foods…..I had made this recipe before, using coconut flour that I had ground up in my coffee grinder. This new batch is definitely better. This is another recipe that Lauren had put on her blog here..
I followed the directions-even the water bath. I used Xylitol and blackstrap molasses for the sweetener and I toasted the nuts. YUM. This is a good brownie recipe and it’s easy too.
 
We had breakfast with Amanda and Jerry this mornin at our fav little mexican restaurant. We were very energetic this morning….we just finished cutting the grass! I found this pretty flower while we were trimming the yard.
I made us a big pitcher of tea and we’re chillin! It’s gonna be a hot one today!

Lauren’s Crunchy Low Carb Snack Bars are Delish

with 2 comments

I could not resist making these things after I saw Lauren’s blog, Healthy Indulgences.  Here’s where I got the recipe  http://healthyindulgences.blogspot.com/2008/08/crunchy-low-carb-snack-bars.html. This recipe has almonds, pecans, coconut, nut butter, coconut oil, honey, vanilla, and sweetener, erythritol and stevia. I forgot to put the flax seeds! I used sugar free honey instead of regular honey and I added 1 drop of Sweetzfree to the chocolate icing.I read the recipe wrong and put 1 tablespoon of cream (instead of 1 teaspoon) in the icing. I don’t think that really made a difference.They are seriously delicious. I  toasted nuts and this has ’em. I really like the toasted coconut!
I was distracted because I was making breakfast the same time I was making these yummy bars, but these still came out great, even without the flax seeds.
