Having Fun with GAPS

Lydia and Gabe excited about making Friday night pizza!

They each made a pizza with a special grain-free crust.

Gabe's crust is ground almonds.  Substituted almonds for the hazelnuts in the recipe

Lydia made a coconut flour crust all by herself!  The recipe is here.

Pizza sauce!

3 Sister's local grass-fed beef!

My little pizza chefs!

Looking good enough to eat!

Yummy!

MONSTER Cave

Winter Storm 2012

Cold snowy day.  We live in the banana belt or at least in a rain shadow, getting the mildest hit and always the least amount of precipitation of everyone else.  Kids were happy to have just enough to have a good time in.

Got my toe in it!  Actually crunched around in it yesterday afternoon before the sun went down, helping Gabe haul some firewood in the crisp cold air.

This puts "banana belt" in perspective.  Don't think we'll be growing any bananas here.  The kids are looking at the tropical rain forests of the world at this season.

Snow fall and icy roads brought and kept Marshal home for the most part the past few days.  Kids got a good sledding time in with Dad.  Happy family.
