My Brother’s Other Keeper

Littlest one got missed,
Jiji is one of the pack;
He can melt hearts too.

Jiji loves to sleep,
But he has a strange craving—
He tends to eat grass.

Mooman likes to cuddle,
Marmalade enjoys eating,
Case scares easily.

What about Babee?
She is special to the cats–
By annoying them.

Pancake Sandwiches


Stacks of Sandwiches
One with yogurt and walnuts,
‘Nother with sausage.

Then there’s open faced,
Topped with PB and preserves –
Strawberry flavored.

Pancake Recipe
1 cup white whole wheat flour
1 tbsp coconut flour
1 tbsp cream of wheat
1 tbsp baking powder
1 tbsp sugar
1 tbsp ground flaxseed meal
3 tbsp egg whites
1 egg
3 tbsp olive olive oil
1 cup milk (may be a bit more; consistency is more thick than watery)

Mix wet ingredients together and pour over mixed dry ingredients. Into medium-heated and oiled skillet, spoon enough to make two or three pancakes at a time, using the back of a spoon to spread batter into a round shape. Gently flip when surface starts bubbling. When other side is browned, transfer to a plate. Repeat, add oil when needed as you continue cooking. When done, put whatever filling you want between two pancakes to make a sandwich.

Filling ideas: Sausage, bacon, ham, yogurt, pieces of nuts, nut butter, preserves or jelly, applesauce, cream cheese, ricotta cheese with chocolate chips, and the list goes on . . .
