gettin my coucous on

Voice is a little better.  At least people can understand me now 🙂

The husband doesn’t really know about this yet since he worked today, maybe I shouldn’t let him know this.  I kind of like being spoiled pampered a little.

This mornings breakfast was the usual Saturday pancakes ~ with a little twist!

German Chocolate Pancakes

  • usual pancake batter (what ever you use, I used oat flour)
  • unsweetened shredded coconut
  • pecan pieces
  • coconut flour
  • almond milk
  • cocoa powder

Cook you pancakes according to whatever recipe you like to use but add in some coconut and pecan pieces.  Top them with some chocolate coconut cream – 2T coconut powder, 1/4c almond milk, & 1T cocoa mixed together – more shredded coconut and pecan pieces.

Lentil & Couscous Stuffed Burrito

  • 1/4c leftover lentil sloppy joe mix
  • 1/8c cooked couscous
  • ww tortillas
  • shredded mozzerella cheese (or cheese of choice)

Combine the lentil mixture and the couscous until well mixed.  Heat the tortilla shells in a pan for a few minutes on each side.  Spoon the desired amount of mixture into the shell, top with some cheese, and roll up burrito style.  Place in an oven safe dish seam side down.  Top with more of the lentil mixture, queso sauce, and shredded cheese.  Bake in a 350 degree oven until nice and hot with bubbly cheese.
