Oopsie Rolls = Yum!

Ooopsie Roll

I don’t think I’ve made Oopsie Rolls in over a year. I liked them but wasn’t that impressed enough to make them again. Big mistake!

Now that I am on the Egg Fast (Jimmy Moore called Egg Fest) diet and only consuming eggs, good fats, and cheese, I thought I’d give it another go.

After all it’s another way to eat my eggs.

Oopsie Rolls

Gather your ingredients:

3 eggs
3 ounces cream cheese
1/8 tsp. arrowroot or xanthan gum

Optional: spices & sweetener

So here’s what you do. Separate the eggs. Add cream cheese to the yolks and arrowroot or the xanthan gum to the whites.

Using a mixer whip the whites until soft peaks form. Once done with the whites beat the yolks and cream cheese until blended. If you are adding spices or sweeteners you’ll add them in with the yolks at this time.
Once the yolks and cream cheese (and spices if you added any) are mixed carefully fold in the egg whites.

On a cookie sheet with parchment paper (or grease pan with coconut oil) make 6 mounds with the mixture. Flatten a little if needed.
Put in a 300* oven and cook for 30 minutes. The rolls should be firm to the touch. Not soft.

Remove from oven and let cool. I stored mine between parchment paper and wrapped the bundle in it as well. Mine were gone within the day! They will keep at room temperature for a few days. They do get a little sticky, simply reheat in a toaster oven or pan.
 You can freeze these if you like.

If on the Egg Fast two rolls = 1 egg + 1oz cream cheese. You will need to add a 1 tablespoon of a fat of your choice (like mayo!).

Now for some pictures!

There are only 3 eggs in this recipe so I whipped up my egg whites in a mason jar.

If you want to ‘flavor’ your Oopsie Rolls add in your extras before adding the egg whites.

I use my parchment paper more than once as you can see in the bottom picture.

Then enjoy. At the time I wrote this post I was on the Egg Fast so I made an egg and cheese sandwich with homemade mayo! Super delish!
Oopsie Rolls
I added a few tsp of this garlic blend to my Oopsie Rolls and it really made the rolls taste amazingly good. My Oopsie Rolls were husband approved. I served up the same sandwich, except I added some ham to his.

Here is what made my Oopsie rolls go from ordinary to great.
You can find it at Costco and probably Amazon.

Turn the Oopsie Roll over and make a mini pizza, add stevia and cinnamon to make a sweet roll, the possibilities are endless with these rolls.

Oopsie Rolls are Atkins, Ketogenic, low-carb, and Trim Healthy Mama friendly.

How do you eat your Oopsie Roll?

School Days

Our school days are winding down here at homeschooling6. The 4 older children are mostly doing Heart of Dakota on their own. The 2 younger are on a HOD break (wink).

I’m only teaching reading, spelling, and English to the 4 younger kiddos (Caleb, Brent, Ethan, and Lance).

I’m adding in some puzzles and dot to dots for the 2 younger boys because they have too much time on their hands and it works their brains.
I found the Word Games for a buck at Half Price!
When correcting Rod and Staff English I sometimes have the boys be the teacher. usually when it’s diagramming.
The boys like to make stick figures.
Rod and Staff English
Brent’s workspace and yes they are allowed some coffee in the morning. I usually make it half decaffeinated and half regular coffee.

I love his English composition book, haha.
It says spelling but it’s now English.

Brent teaching.
By having them teach the lesson takes 20 minutes longer but the benefits outweigh that. They love it and I believe it really reinforces the lesson.
Rod and Staff English
All About Spelling lesson with Caleb and Brent
All About Reading
Yesterday’s lesson was about collective nouns . . .
All About Reading
The boys just have so much fun with the activities. They are older so we don’t do them all but when they do complete one there are lots of laughs to go along with it.
All About Reading
And italics.
All About Reading
The boys do the rest of their school on their own. Heart of Dakota, math, and finish English. We haven’t been keeping up with Writing and Rhetoric. I was hoping to get through a few more books with them but their schedule is already pretty full. With the writing they get from Rod and Staff and narrations from Heart of Dakota for now that is all they are doing.

I still hope to get them started with Cover Story in January. That is up-in-the air still. I need to save up for it.

Here is Ethan completing one of the puzzles that I assigned.
We haven’t been doing Heart of Dakota Creation to Christ for a month now. I have been having him read from Christian Liberty Nature Reader and writing a 2-5 sentence narration. He also completes All About Spelling/Reading, copywork from his English lessons: English Lessons Through Literature, and math.

Lance completing a crossword puzzle.

Look What Hubby Brought Home!

I guess my Sweets got tired of me asking him to stop at Braum’s for another dozen or so eggs.
Egg Fast
Now I’m set for a few weeks.

I like to boil a few dozen and have the kids snack on them. I have them eat at least one egg a day. I call it their daily vitamins.

Operation Shoebox

The kids and I had a lot of fun putting our Samaritan Purse shoeboxes together. I wish I would have taken more pictures.

I took a few pics once we were all done I’m sad to say.
Operation Shoebox
Lupe took us all to Target and we found so many goodies like crayons, markers, pencils, little pads of paper, fun little toys, hats, socks, washcloths, etc.

We were originally going to do 3 boxes but somehow another box made it into our home. I wanted 1 box for a little girl but none of the younger boys wanted to make one for a girl. They were having to much fun shopping for boys their age. Lance said he knows what a 10 year old boy would want because he’s 10.

When we were home I found a shoebox to put the little girl box together. It was fun shopping for a girly things.
We ended up with:
1 for a teenage boy
1 for a teenage girl
1 boy box 5-9
1 boy box 10-14 
1 5-9 box for a girl

Lance did a box for a 10 year old but it’s actually for ages 10-14 which I think is a big age gap. There should be another for just teens like 13-14.

Josh and Annette did teenage boxes but theirs can also go to a 10 year old.
Along with the box we needed to enclose $7.00 for shipping so we did this online. By paying online you can also track your box. The kids are looking forward to seeing where their box will end up!

Have you packed your shoeboxes?

Egg Fast Week 2

I completed my second week of the Egg Fast. This week I didn’t write all that I ate on my blog because there are only so many ways to eat eggs. It’s the same as my Week 1. I do write it all in my composition book that I use as a food journal.

I’m still not losing but maintaining the few pounds I lost last week. I still plan to continue with the Egg Fast through November.
Egg Fast Weel 2
What I did this week, Monday-Wednesday I ate cheese with my eggs (mostly cream cheese). I made the pancakes which consist of eggs and cream cheese or had the cream cheese muffins.

I thought I’d cut back on the Stevia by only adding 1 tablespoon of the Cinnamon Butter to my pancakes. On the Egg Fast you must have 1:1 ratios of eggs and fat (1 egg + 1 fat), so if I had 3 eggs in my pancakes I’ll add 1T Cinnabutter and 2T butter.

Thursday and Friday I cut out all cheese and only had one packet of Stevia to see if that would get the weight loss going. I’m not a big fan of scrambled eggs. The only way I like scrambled eggs is with cottage cheese or if I can add some greens or eat them with some type of meat.

I do however enjoy deviled eggs or hard boiled eggs with homemade mayo. This is how I ate my eggs for the two days. I’m sure 2 days wasn’t enough but by Saturday I was ready to eat something other than hard boiled eggs (wink-wink).
Saturday I ate eggs for breakfast via a coffee and lunch. Then enjoyed salmon and veggies for supper.

Sunday I ate eggs for breakfast, lunch, and dinner but I did splurge and had a sugar free mocha made with cream instead of milk. Starbucks was having their buy 1 get 1 free between 2-5 P.M. It’s a treat to take all the children out so I went with it and enjoyed a cup of coffee with the family.

In total for week 2 I enjoyed 64 eggs. Surprisingly it was the exact same amount as last week.

Week 3 here I come! I plan to try the Oopsie Rolls this week.

Creative Lance

My 10 year old son Lance loves Trios and Legos. Some of his creations.
Here are a few of his smaller ones.
I thought it was cute how Lance tried to get some good pictures of his Trio creations.
He worked hard on this one.
I think it came out pretty neat!
Look how he used two round Legos to cover up some of the base in the picture above.
The fruits of his labor.
Brent and Ethan playing a game of checkers.
More Trio
Here is a close up.
Oh, and look what I found lying around. His cute little shoes.
I think it’s about time for a new pair.

Egg Fast: Buffalo Style Omelet

I love Buffalo Chicken Wings!!! Anything with buffalo sauce, well, it just makes it better.

When I found this Buffalo Omelet recipe from I Breath Hungry . . ., I was like, oh yeah! This is a pretty good size omelet too.

I tweaked it a little. Just added some mayo to it.

For the Buffalo filling you will need:
  2oz Cream Cheese
1 tablespoon mayo
1 tbsp Blue Cheese (or other soft cheese like feta )
1.5 tsp hot sauce. I use Louisiana Hot Sauce

In a small pan (or in a bowl if using the microwave) on low heat put all the ingredients in and combine and stir until smooth.
Buffalo Omelet Sauce
For the Omelet:
3 eggs
1 tbsp water
2 tbsp butter

Melt the butter in a nonstick pan. Whisk the egg and water. Pour into pan and let cook. When the egg is firm and you are able to flip it without the egg breaking flip it over and let it cook on the other side. At this time spoon the filling on one side of the egg and spread it out. Once the other side of the egg is cooked, fold the egg and serve.

Here is how I cook my omelet. I cook and flip!
Then add the filling and fold.

Try low-carb, ketogenic, Ankins, and of course Egg Fast  friendly pancakes and Cream Cheese muffins too.

Egg Fast Muffins

I’m 13 days into my Egg Fast and am really enjoying it. Who knew there were so many ways to cook up an egg. I’m not really losing anything like my Egg Fast buddies are but I’m not doing this all for weight loss though but to give myself a challenge. I like doing these health challenges. Last time it was the Whole 30.

I love that I know what I’m going to eat every day and it just makes life that much easier. On Saturdays, I eat low-carb, high fat and continue on Sunday.
One of my goodies is making the Cream Cheese Muffins. One of the talented ladies in the group posted this recipe.

They are not the prettiest muffins but they are tasty!
Cream Cheese Muffins 1
These are super simple, just 3 main ingredients: eggs, butter, and cream cheese and 2 more ingredients to add yumminess: Stevia or sweetener of your choice and cinnamon.

1. Melt 4oz cream cheese and 4 tablespoons of butter in a small pan and mix thoroughly. Mixing thoroughly is an important step to get a nice consistency. You can also melt in the microwave and mix.

2. Add a packet of Stevia (I used Sweet Leaf) and a tablespoon of cinnamon.
3. Add 4 eggs

5. Mix all ingredients and pour into greased muffin tins or use cupcake liners.

6. Bake for 15 minutes at 325 (they may need a little longer, mine did)

I got 6 muffins both times which = 3/4 of an egg. I plan to purchase a 6 cup jumbo muffin pan. This way I can make 4 jumbo muffins and count each muffin as 1 egg.

Calories for the whole batch is 1120 and 8 carbs.
Cream Cheese Muffins 2
You can enjoy these muffins with a little Thick and Sticky Maple Syrup and an Egg Fast Coffee!

Egg Fast Coffee: put 2 raw eggs in a blender or Magic Bullet, add 1 Tbsp Kerrygold butter, 1 Tbsp MCT or coconut oil, a packet of stevia and blend with coffee (I usually make a 16oz cup).

With the muffins, if you don’t have a packet of Sweet Leaf Stevia, just add your own low glycemic sweetener to taste.

The original recipe called for lots of cinnamon so I started with a tablespoon. I’ve made these a few times that way. I may add more next time. Pumpkin Spice might be a good spice to add.

My favorite way to cook up some eggs on the Egg Fast is to make some pancakes or try the Buffalo Omelet.

Little of This and That

Its been chilly around here, yay! I love it but it does make it hard to get out of bed.
Weather 11.13.14
It’s been crazy-busy here. I had quite a few reviews due in the past weeks and now it’s all over. The 2014 Crew year has come to an end. Guess what comes at the end of the Schoolhouse Review Crew year, the Blue Ribbon Award.
Blue Ribbon Award
This Blue Ribbon Awards won’t be posted until Monday.
I haven’t been taking too many pictures of our school days.
The two younger boys have been consistently using All About Reading and All About Spelling. These pictures are from last week.
All About Reading
All About Reading Level 3, Ethan completed lesson 24. I try to fit in at least three lessons a week. My goal is four though.
All About Spelling
With All About Spelling Level 3  Ethan is working through lesson 13. Step 13- The 1-1-1 Rule. He is still working through this lesson. The rule is a bit confusing for him.
Ethan has 31 lessons left of English Lessons Through Literature. I’m really excited about this. He is on lesson 74 and learning about prepositions.
This week I have him writing down the parts of speech, their definition, and words. For example with Verbs he wrote the definition, under that he wrote all the linking verbs, than all the state of being verbs, and all the helping verbs.
He doesn’t always remember the definition and such so I thought if he had all the parts of speech in one area he can refer to them there. Makes it easier than having to find his workbook pages.
Teaching Textbook 4
Ethan has been working his way through Teaching Textbook 4. I really would like him to start level 5 in the next couple of months. Most days he’s been completing 2 lessons a week.
Ethan 11.13.14.pngQuiz
Lance has completed up to lesson 20 in All About Reading 1. Hopefully by Jan. I can restart him in level 2.
All About Reading
Lance likes to put his sticker on the chart.
All About Reading
Lance started All About Spelling Lesson Step 14 – Final Blends.
All About Spelling 
We will probably take three days to complete this lesson. Today he spelled the words using the tiles. Tomorrow he’ll spell the words in his composition books, next I’ll have him spell from the More Words and some phrases.
Lance is working his way through English Through Literature Level 2! Today he completed lesson 10 about action verbs. This week he is completing his ELTL copywork in cursive. It will give him some more practice.
I don’t have Lance’s Teaching Textbook program on this computer so I’m not sure what lesson he is on. I’ll have to report back on that. I am having him do two lessons a day like Ethan. I do know that Lance is on the 2nd disc.
And that is where we are right now.
