Chickens Rule!

I had to capture this on video. Whenever I check on the chickens, our rooster, Jessie, will follow and challenge Sheba to show who's boss!

Good morning to you too!!

Meet Jessie. We raised her (him) from a 1 day old chick. We had many hopes and dreams that someday Jessie would provide us with fresh eggs for breakfast. Now we cringe each morning at (ahem!) 5:30 A.M. sharp with a crisp and clear, COCKA-DOOODLE!!!! But no DOOOOS.... Not sure if Jessie will ever do the cocka-doodle-dooo, but whatever he dooo's, I hope my neighbor's don't want to dooo me in.
Looking again at my city ordinance rules, we can have up to 10 chickens in town. No specifications on roosters. I'm assuming (ahem) that we CAN have a rooster...

Anyway, my girls (and 1 guy) are growing fast! I built them a nice large pen last week and they seem pretty happy!

Low Carb Pizza!

Here's an amazing LOW CARB - breadless pizza!

Pizza Crust
  • 2 cups Mazarella Cheese
  • 2 cups riced Cauliflour
  • 2 Eggs

The cauliflour is "riced" by using a food processor, or grater. It needs to resemble rice. Place in microwave and cook for 5 min.
I make my own pizza sauce. Just a small can of tomato paste, add water to make consistency you prefer, then a pinch of garlic salt, and your favorite Italian spices. Mix, heat, and set aside.

Mix in bowl, both cups of cauliflour, 2 cups Mazarella cheese, and 2 eggs. Pour over a greased cookie sheet/pizza pan and spread.

Cook at 400 degrees for 15-20 min till crust is browned.

Spread sauce, and sprinkle Parmesan cheese...

Pile on your favorite toppings! Set oven to broil and cook only long enough for toppings/cheese to melt.
*This is the second time I've made this and I had forgotten to precook my riced cauliflour. It still turned out!
