Dinner:

  • i roasted veggies that i needed to finish up (sugar snap peas and brussel sprouts) and added in some carrots and asparagus. roast brussel sprouts and carrots at 400F for about 10-15 minutes and throw in asparagus and peas for only about 2-5 minutes at the end (you don’t want them over-cooked and mushy)
  • turkey tenderloin cooked with coconut oil, balsamic and a bit of that fig vinegar i showed you a few days back

day12dinnerCRACKERS!

i saw this recipe on pinterest  and it peeked my curiosity. i had all the ingredients on hand, so i thought i’d give it a try.

all you do is add the ingredients in a small bowl. whisk. pour batter onto parchment/baking paper already placed on your cookie sheet, and top with additional sheet of parchment paper. use a rolling pin to roll the batter out thinly. then score the batter with either a knife or pizza roller. bake at 350F for about 12-13 minutes.

allow the crackers to cool on a wire cooling rack.

i added chili powder and crushed red pepper to mine. i think they are delicious. i’m glad to have a cracker to go with guacamole or salsa. next batch i’ll be using 3-5 eggs and make a good portion of these little babies. kid tested, mother approved.
