Okay, so I guess it’s time to share. Our family is growing. It wasn’t exactly what we had planned, but sometimes the unplanned things in life are the best, right?
These guys want to show you a little something.
Meet our new additions.
On our way home this past weekend, since I got to make a special stop for squash, STUFT Daddy got to make a special stop of his own. His was for chickens. Obviously.
He’s been telling me it’s embarrassing that I buy eggs from Costco, so we finally decided to try to have some of our own.
Funny that he didn’t mention anything about my egg whites.
We got five chickens. Only one is a guaranteed hen. The others we don’t know for sure. Two of them there’s only a 50/50 chance. We’ll shall see.
Their names (which are subject to change, but as of 6 am this morning) are Blackie, Puffin, Pluto, Ropey and Matilda.
Anyone want to take bets on how many are actually female?
Okay, let’s talk salmon and squash really quick.
I mentioned my snack from yesterday, but it bares repeating because it was that good and perfect for hotter weather.
Spicy Salmon Cucumber Snack Stacks
Take a cucumber, cut it lengthwise, top with wasabi (optional), then seaweed snacks (Trader Joe’s wasabi flavored are my favorite), salmon (this Costco salmon is the best) and then sriracha.
So darn good friends. You’ve got to try it.
I bet it would be good with some cream cheese on there too.
Yesterday (and this morning) it was a protein version of the fat free donut cake.
Here it is.
Protein Maple Cake
1/2-3/4 cup egg whites
2 tablespoons coconut flour (14 grams)
5 grams psyllium husk (about 1 tablespoon)
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
6 drops liquid stevia
1 sweetener packet or teaspoon of sugar (I used my new favorite sweetener)
splash of maple extract
1-3 tablespoons of water
Mix all ingredients together. Pour into baked half of kabocha squash for about 5 minutes. (you can also just make it on it’s own in a mug sprayed with nonstick spray like all the other protein microwave muffins).
I topped it with PB2 mixed with some maple syrup and added a little smoked sea salt for good measure.
Yep. It’s really THAT good.
It can also be done with other versions of microwave muffins. Really, the options are endless.
So are the toppings.
You can even do a husky STUFT microwave pancake in it.
The sweet roasted kabocha squash experiments just never end.
Have a great day!
