Food Photo Dump + An Update!

So I was browsing through my laptop and realized I had so many unposted food photos, like these:

Now, I remember specifically why I didn’t share the recipe on my blog. It was because neither of these donuts were perfected yet. I distinctly remember choking on my coconut flour one because I didn’t add enough liquids, and coconut flour tends to be very dry and absorbs a lot of moisture.

Now, I never did perfect the recipe because I returned this little donut maker for a waffle maker instead. I figured it’d better serve me since I can press sandwiches and make egg waffles with them. Not to mention make waffles themselves–only keto-paleo friendly, of course.

Low Carb Paleo Donut Ingredients

I think what these ingredients were were coconut flour, curry power, 2 eggs, and flax meal. Oh, and some salt.

Lard and almond flour

And then another day I attempted lard cookies. I’ve always loved the flaky pastry crust of pies–apple pie, pumpkin pie custards… so I attempted to make one myself with pork fat because that’s the secret to a nice flaky crust(besides butter, of course)! My “LardOokies” tasted real nice with some peppermint extract but I never snapped a decent photo of them. You see, they were so flaky that when I picked them up they crumbled in my fingers.

Steamed Pork Ribs

Flashback a year earlier. Last fall, I stood by the living room window eating some steamed pork ribs with parsley. I LOVE ribs.

On that note, I’m also heading back home today to spend Halloween with my siblings. I can’t wait to go trick-or-treating with them and I wonder if I should myself, get some candy. I’m certainly young-looking enough to pass as a highschooler or middle schooler, but I don’t have a costume. I remember last year telling myself I wanted to be a sexy ring master. That didn’t happen so I vowed for it to happen this year. And well, this year, it’s not happening as well…

Worst comes to worst I just enjoy the walking around while I see kids trick-or-treating. I checked the weather network to see what it’ll be like the night of October 31st, and it just says cloudy! HOOPLA! Because the last 2 years, it’s rained on Halloween.

Things I gotta get done this weekend:

  • my stagecraft collage
  • buying cotton and feathers and a sharpie
  • my list of things to bring back with me to university
  • doing some demonstrations for knives(my new job is to demonstrate them and I get paid with each demo, whether I made a sale or not)

On the note of Halloween, I wish a you happy and safe night filled with fun! Make sure that you make these…
