So I’ve been Home Alone this week. Yeah, it deserves the capital letters. I hate being Home Alone. I realize that I’m 27, but I’ve never lived alone. And I have this insane imagination that refused to be quenched, particularly when I’m alone in a house with a Boykin Spaniel who won’t stop barking at the cars across the street.
Kevin had a business trip (back to Minnesota!!!) so I was fending for myself for a few days. Was it obvious from my blog? Haha. The mini pancakes? Coconut flour pizza! And even healthy cookies. Ha! I can’t believe I didn’t blow throw all the chips in the pantry while Kevin was gone, but I guess paranoia staves off the munchies!
For Kevin’s Homecoming last night, I knew I needed to make one of The Boring 3. I knew Kevin had pizza for lunch (like that makes a difference) so I decided to go with tacos.
Uh oh. No taco shells. Time for a little DIY action.
Homemade Whole Wheat Flax Tortillas (adapted from Aprons & Apples)
- 1 & 3/4 cup whole wheat flour
- 1/4 cup ground flaxseed
- 1 teaspoon salt
- 1.5 teaspoons baking powder
- 2 tablespoons olive oil
- 3/4 cup warm water
Directions: Mix your dry ingredients together till well blended. Next combine olive oil and warm water. Gradually add the liquid in a slow steady stream to your dry ingredients. Knead it all together till you have a ball and continue kneading once it has come together for about 1 minute. Now let it rest covered with at damp towel for about 10 minutes
Split the dough up into 12 even pieces, and roll them into small balls. Once they have been shaped into balls let them rest for 10 more minutes. Cook on hot, dry skillet. Once the bubbles start to form flip them over and cook until both sides are done.
Easy. Why haven’t I done that before again???
With the goods:
In case you were wondering where Boyd slept while his padre was gone:
Totally on Kevin’s side of the bed.
He had no qualms about making himself comfortable!
Boyd was not a fan of his bed last night after a few nights in our bed. Sorry, Boyd!!!
Good news — The Vizsla rescue rep was here tonight for our home visit. We passed with flying colors!! We are so excited. I think Kevin even got more excited about owning a Vizsla (although that baby girl is going to be ALL MINE!!). The Vizsla people brought their dog along for the visit. It was so fun!! We’re planning to go to the next local Vizsla club meeting even if we don’t have our own yet. I can’t wait!!! Oh. What reminded me of that was that the lady said their Vizlsa slept in bed with them. He’s HUGE!!!!! He literally almost knocked me over when he jumped up on me. I think we’re going to be needing a king-sized bed for sure!!!
If you have pets, do you let them on the furniture? Things have just gone downhill with the Boykin lately. Lol. And I know my Vizsla will be the princess.
What are your Home Alone habits? Sleeping with the lights on. Extra gym time. Playing music loudly so I don’t hear bumps in the night. Not going in the scary basement to do laundry. Assessing the security features of my house.
