Real Life Right Now

The last few weeks have been fun!

An early morning rainbow sighting with the kids

 A surprise weekend away, just the two of us:


Family roller skating, for the first time:

But, it's also been pretty tiring.  Scott is plugging away at two jobs, I'm still teaching part-time, and the kids are working hard at school. (And doing well!)

I am still trying to keep our diet "clean" and spending a lot of time cooking from scratch and trying to manage our food budget.  

This morning was a pretty typical example.  I made coconut milk earlier this week from shredded coconut, then attempted to make the leftover coconut into coconut flour.  I looked up a ton of recipes and decided to try this one:

Fluffy Coconut Flour Pancakes

Fluffy Coconut Flour Pancakes | @girlversusdough #glutenfree #breakfast #recipe

Looks delicious, right???

Well, this is what they looked like for me!

I have no idea what I did wrong (although maybe my homemade flour had something to do with it).

I had to stack about 10 to make it look anything like a fluffy stack of pancakes!!

Besides me, Kip was the only one who would try them! I don't know what magic food photographers have, but I don't think I'm going to be able to trust a beautiful photo for a while...
