Finding out you have a food allergy can be devastating.

Finding out you have a food allergy can be devastating. I think my first thought was, "What does that mean?" You ask your doctor and he says just avoid that food. It's just a skin test. They aren't entirely accurate.

I am going to attempt to give you ideas and recipes on how to avoid corn. It can be quite the challenge.

Sorry that my blog is evolving into a little bit of everything in life.

Powder Egg Omlete

My chickens have slowed down production.  I'm getting 1-2 a day from 6 hens. We got 2 new barred rock hens this year. They should start laying any day.  I've used my powder eggs. 1 TB to 2 TB water.  Made scrambled eggs yesterday with onion and bell pepper.  My garden has produced well this year.  All my produce is home grown.  Today I made an oven Omlete. Oiled pan with grape seed oil lined with homemade bread slices. Added chopped onion, bell pepper, yellow squash, salt, pepper. 6 TB powder eggs soaked in 3/4 water 15 mins and blended in mini processor. I needed to add additional water up to total 1 1/4 cups water to soak the bread. Baked 380 30 mins or until it's dry.  Added slices of Danamark Danish Havarti Cheese put back in oven for a few minutes to melt.

Breakfast and Lunch

Tomorrow breakfast and lunch. I'll heat the frozen buckwheat pancakes and blueberries. Top with cottage cheese and 2 hard boiled eggs on the side.  Lunch will be reheated frozen meatloaf and toasted homemade bread.  I pre-toast my bread and put in a sandwich bag the night before. I don't seal in fully until the next morning so the steam escapes. 

I pre-cook big batches of buckwheat pancakes.  Pre-package my lunch the night before.  Breakfast is usually pancakes and cottage cheese or egg sandwiches, sometimes with some dubliner. Lunch is something I made the night before, or something I had extra and froze.  I've been having sliced cucumbers with my lunch this week but I'm out for tomorrow and I'm tired. It's Thursday.  I have zucchini in the fridge but just can't do it.  :-). Cheers!

I'm showing the pancakes frozen invthe background. The cottage cheese and blueberries from my bushes. I also freeze the berries on cookies sheets. Place them in a ziplock and use the same.

Green Bean Harvest

My husband was dissatisfied with the pole beans we grew last year, so he's planted 3 - 25 foot rows this year. 

There's weeds!  You do what u can do, when u work too. Plus we have had excessive rain the year. 

Here's last weekends harvest, and there will more this coming weekend. 
Blanched and froze 5 pints snap beans and 4 pints french cut beans
Here's how I french cut beans. You can find this rotary cutter or a hand cutter on Amazon. 
Canned 16 pints
My tall pressure canner holds 16 pints.

3 years later I finally got blueberries from my 4 bushes!  My dh put some wonderful cages around the so I could have all of the blueberries to myself!  Now I need to be more proactive about fertilizing them!

Dehydrator Buckwheat Flakes

Diane on FB shared this with me.
Of course I had to alter the recipe for myself. 
3/4 cup buckwheat flour
3/4 cup King Arthur unbleached white wheat flour
1/4 cup ground flax seed
1/2 cup honey
1/2 cup apple sauce
1/2 tsp salt
3/4 cup Lakewood organic apple juice
Diane said the thinner you spread the better 
the flake so I thinned the batter a bit more 
with the apple juice. Spread in 5 fruit leather 
trays.  Cooking on highest heat.  I'll post the 
results later.
