4th and food
I enjoyed an air-conditioned, third story (though back-sided) view of the 4th of July parade with Denise (pictured below) in her lovely office building.
Beforehand, I’d cooked up some grass-fed beef patties with rosemary (my first meat burger in a few years)- pretty easy, just shape and fry (though next time I’ll use a top for the pan):
Today is baking/cooking day in anticipation of an outing with friends tomorrow (and knowing my diet is super restrictive).
Paleo no-bake cookies
- 1/3 c honey
- 1 1/2 tbsp cocoa
- 1/3 c coconut oil
- 1/3 c almond butter
- 1 tsp vanilla
- 2 c unsweetened shredded coconut
Bring honey cocoa and oil to a boil for about 1 minute. Remove from heat and add almond butter and vanilla, stir well. Add coconut and coat thoroughly. Drop spoonfuls onto parchment paper (I laid it on a cutting board) and refrigerate. Consume!
- 6-7 hard boiled eggs
- 1/4 c kefir (lactose free)
- 1 tsp mustard (gluten free)
- any spices that please (I used garam masala)
- a dusting of paprika
Remove yolks and mash. Stir in kefir, mustard and spices (I used a fork). Fill egg whites. Sprinkle with paprika.
