Unfortunately it required my tallest ladder that was in the garage. I planned to wait, but Cooper was going crazy. Jessie, who usually hides under the nearest chair, couldn't hear it at all since her hearing went almost in one day.
Have you ever tried to teach your dog hand signals? After a week of wildly waving my arms, she now comes when she sees me pretending to be a windmill from Indio. At any rate, I got the battery changed and it's quiet now.
Speaking of the garage, friend Cyndae said even if it takes two years, I should start clearing out the house so if and when I move, it will be much easier. GREAT idea. I started by cleaning out this bay.
Everything that can go in the trash or is free, I stacked outside. Then I set up two tables that will hold most of the sale stuff. In less than two hours, the tables were full. I have a LONG way to go. The good news is that the garage is getting cleaned up!!
As far as the Keto diet is concerned, I feel like chirping myself. I'm eating like a bird. At first, I was thinking "how can you eat all this fatty goodness and lose weight?" It dawned on me I was probably eating WAY too much food.
I've always been the meat and vegetable girl, so when I saw the recipe for chicken parmesan, I jumped right in. I actually did cut one chicken breast into four pieces, then pounded it out so it looked bigger than it really was.
Using almond flour for the breading did give it a different taste, but nothing I couldn't swallow. Looks nice, yeah??
So this was dinner. Cauliflower casserole and chicken. By the way, that is a very small six inch paper plate. Amazingly, I wasn't hungry at all after cleaning up every minuscule piece and almost licking the plate. Moderation George said!!!
My problem is the sweets AFTER dinner. I finally got the ingredients together to make Fat Bombs. Yup ... that's what they call these morsels of bitter, bitter chocolate. Macadamia nuts in a muffin tin, covered with Lilys dark chocolate chips, melted with a tablespoon of coconut oil. That didn't sound the least bit appetizing to me, but I made them anyway. How is this supposed to help my sweet tooth?
Sprinkling the top with coarse salt did help a little. The chocolate is so bitter with no sugar, that the salt actually tasted sweet. But not sweet enough. I made a second batch, adding in Stevia. Honestly, I could hardly tell the difference. Next time I need to add half the bottle.
I still have my doubts this is going to work, but I'll keep trying. It definitely will be difficult while at the next three RV rallies. Which reminds me, I need to get back to packing!!
