What goes WOW between two pieces of bread?

Wow!

Sometimes it feels like I should put on a chefs hat and open a little lunch lounge.

That’s what I’d call it,
“Little Lunch Lounge”.

Open: 10am – 3:30pm

Menu: The best sandwich you’ve ever tasted!

Today I created a
‘Finish up what is left in the fridge’
sandwich.

Ingredients:

•Pumpernickel bread
•Ham Deli meat
•Tomato (organic)
•Baby Spinach
•Swiss Cheese
•Red Bell Pepper
•Red onion slices
•Pickles on the side

Now, what the big ‘hub bub’ is, is the TECHNIQUE.

Man, the TECHNIQUE, this is really the kicker!

———–

Anyone can just slap these ingredients together and call it a sandwich.

But this, this is a ‘SaNDwiCH!’

Here it is:

At the end, one sandwich has all ingredients and the other is minus the tasty tomato and red onion. My 4 year old doesn’t know what he’s missing.

It may take a few try’s to get it right.

This is how hers came out:

I am a newbie with using Coconut flour. My goal in having a healthier diet includes using coconut flour to replace the all purpose flour in recipes.

——-

With that said, there are some notable differences when you are accustomed to All Purpose flour.

1. Coconut recipes require many more eggs- so you will taste it.

2. The texture IS different. (You have to store your coconut flour correctly or you can get very grainy tasting results.
I keep my bag of coconut flour in a double ziplock bag, then place it in the back of the refrigerator. I’m not an expert, but that’s my method.)

3. You will get fuller faster. (If you normally eat 6 regular pancakes, coconut pancakes will have you full in 3 or 4. That’s what happened with us. )

4. If you don’t have the right technique, you will have to try again. (With regular pancakes, the technique isn’t so critical in your success. But, with the coconut flour pancakes, you’ve got to be ‘on point’. )

5. When you get the coconut pancakes right, you will be amazed. It will taste great and your body will feel great.
