I feel like we haven’t REALLY chatted in, like, 47 years. What has been happening? What’s going on in the world? Why haven’t we talked!?!?!?!?
Oh I know, because there was no Bachelorette on last week and all of our lives sucked. Kidding, kidding…kind of. It’s probably because we were all doing the holiday weekend things followed by acting as if the week never really began. That’s what I was doing. It just didn’t feel like a real week last week. Can we just take a second to think about how awesome it would be if we all only worked 4 days a week? My husband works 6 days a week and if he only worked 4, we would get to do so much cool sh*t!
Wait, back to the bachelorette…I haven’t watched it yet. My sister in law works Monday nights so I wait to watch it with her on Tuesday. So DON’T TELL ME ANYTHING! I’ll be watching it in just a few hours then recapping the sh*t out of things tomorrow.
Speaking of sh*t, did you guys hear my snapchat rant recently about cussing? Snapchat is my happy place. Mostly because I can say whatever I want and no one can send me messages back about how they feel about what I’m saying. Except when someone writes me on instagram about it. Effed up. Way to ruin my happy place, whoever you are! Anywho, if you don’t have snapchat yet, you totally should get it. Mostly because I was forced to in order to stay hip and cool. Be hip and cool with me. And my cussing.
Ok, back to my sister in law. I officially have the same last name as her! Until she gets married someday and then I’ll be pissed at her. I finally pulled the plug and went down to the Social Security office and changed my name. I removed my middle name, added in my previous last name there and then took my husband’s last name. Next step: DMV on Wednesday for a new ID then I start checking off all the other sh*t like changing my name on my mortgage, bills, bank, and really, who knows what else. I wonder when using your new last name feels natural. Because now, it feels weird AF.
But it’s so fun and cool to share the same last name as him now! And now that we are married, no more parties, no more entertaining (thank the lord)…just constant questions about when I will be with child. Which is not in the near future plans. But what constantly is on our mind is wanting to live on a lake. But we don’t want to move away from Colorado. And since lakes aren’t exactly vast here in Colorado, lake houses are REAL expensive. So now we are trying to figure out how many pennies we need to pinch to be able to get one. I absolutely LOVE the neighborhood we live in and truly adore our house, but my husband is at his happiest when he’s on a lake. So if that means we need to be on a lake, that means we are going to try to figure it out. Not sure how, though. But if that means I get to wake surf regularly, I’m totally down for figuring it out ASAP. I seriously want to wake surf all day, every day. It’s so damn fun!
Wait…before you go…HOW WEIRD IS POKEMON GO?!?! So weird.
For the pancakes
- 3 eggs, whisked
- 1/2 cup almond milk + 3 tablespoons (carton, unsweetened)
- 1 tablespoon maple syrup
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
- 1/2 cup coconut flour
- 1/2 cup tapioca flour
- 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
- 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
- pinch of salt
- coconut oil or ghee, for greasing pan
For the breakfast sausage patties
- 1 pound ground pork
- 2 tablespoons Primal Palate Breakfast Blend or you could make your Apple Fennel Breakfast Sausage from Juli Bauer's Paleo Cookbook
- 2 tablespoons maple syrup
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
For the other toppings
- Whisk together pancake ingredients: eggs, almond milk, maple syrup and vanilla extract in a large bowl. Then, add coconut flour, tapioca flour, baking powder and baking soda and a pinch of salt to the large bowl and whisk until batter is well combined.
- Heat up a griddle pan or whatever pan you prefer and grease. Once hot, use an ice cream scoop or cookie scoop to make pancakes that are about 3 inches across. Let cook through until bubbles begin to appear on the top of the pancakes then flip, about 3-4 minutes per side. Continue until all the batter is gone- the batter should make 12 pancakes. Set pancakes aside and cover with foil to keep warm.
- Once pancakes are done, mix together all the ingredients for the breakfast sausage and form into 6 patties that are the same size as your pancakes (i had 2 extra patties leftover). Heat the griddle pan back up and place patties on the griddle pan and use either the bottom of another pan or pan press to press down the patties and keep them from puffing up while they cook. Cook for 4-5 minutes per side, until golden and cooked through. Once all cooked, set aside and cover with foil
- Lastly, turn the heat down on the pan to a medium low heat. Add the whisked eggs along with salt and pepper, then use a silicone spatula to continuously move the eggs while they cook through. I cooked mine until they were still a bit "wet". Remove from heat.
- Make the sandwiches: pancake, sausage patty, an ice cream scoop worth of scrambled eggs, another pancake, then I topped each one with a small amount of butter and maple syrup on top. I wrapped each sandwich up in foil and placed in the fridge then once I wanted to reheat it the next day, I placed them in the oven in the foil and cooked for 15 minutes at 350 degrees OR I removed them from the foil and cooked in the microwave until warm. The butter and maple syrup on top keeps them from drying out when reheated!
