We're watching WSU. I'd love to see them win!

I made a really good biscuit this a.m. DH even liked it! Cindy, I used your idea of adding a little more salt and I added a little more baking powder. They were really good!

Cindy I forgot to tell you - I have been adding more salt if I'm making a biscuit with that BTF mix. I added even more because of your suggestion (and was sure the 3/4 tsp. was a mistake - and it was) and I liked it better.

If you all keep buttermilk, just 1/4 cup of that mix, + a little extra salt + a little extra baking powder and buttermilk until it is a shaggy dough is delicious.

I used the original BTF mix and added 2 T almond flour, the extra salt and b. powder and half and half with a splash of vinegar instead of b. milk. It worked great! I'll try just the mix too with extra salt. I never have b. milk so I'll still use the half and half with vinegar instead. Thanks for the tip on that.

Hi ladies

Who has snow??? We have about 2 inches on the ground. The snowplow just went by so hope the roads aren't too slick. We have some wind, too.

Weigh-in is Thursday am. I do think I'll be down. I think I have lost about 13 pounds since starting metformin in November.

KU plays today. Hope they do well.

we may have a microscopic dusting of snow. Still too dark to tell.

Your lc doc is probably right to see the value of Metformin for post-menopausal women .
Love your McDonald's dinner. I'll just have to deal with my jealousy. lol

Update: no snow here. It looks icy! But probably just wet. It's 33 degrees.

I'll tell you Judy McDonalds in the evening isn't as exciting as it is for breakie/lunch.

I am going to start to add a tiny bit of unflavored coconut oil to Alex's Fancy Feast. For us humans it slows down the sugar release in foods. Why wouldn't it do it for kitty cats? I am the only LCer person on the diabetic cat care site. Maybe this will be a miracle ingredient that helps the fur babies. Anyone do this for their pets???

Waiting for Alex's numbers to go up so I can give him a shot before church. They are still low and it has been 8 and a half hours since the last one. The gals on the DCC board are happy with his progress.

Hugs and keep safe KC peeps.

I can't stop being curious what you ate at McDonald's?
I guess they have salads...
I'd push people out of the way for those french fries, so I just stay away...

Sounds like Alex is responding beautifully to your good care!

I have been on a dog food board recently and they are all aware that dogs need no carbohydrates. These people make their own dog food for their dog, or evaluate the foods on the market - when they add vegetables, they always stress non-starchy vegetables. They say if a dog were in the wild (or if it were still a wolf) it would be eating the skull, hair, etc. of whatever it killed and would not be romping through fields of wheat eating wheat LOL! So the vegetables are the fiber to make up for the lack of killing their prey.

Ick.

Anyway, I often wonder if those people make the connection of our own food needing to be low carb as well?? I don't preach on those boards, though.

I'd love to have more info on that site Judy.

I made your biscuits this morning. I think. Do you use butter? I did, but only used the BTF mix. The large batch I made up has no sweetener. I made a 10x batch and I almost need to make more!!
I also made bacon gravy with the BTF. It had a bit too much "floury" taste but it was sure good! We had a really big breakfast this a.m. compared to what we usually eat!

We've got 9" of snow and it's still snowing lightly. And most of the early snow yesterday evening melted as it touched the ground. I can't imagine how much we'd have if all of it had piled up. It shouldn't last too long though. I hope!

I was so happy WSU won!! My bracket is so busted anyway that I'm just rooting for whoever I like as they're playing at this point. I'm not in last place right now though, so that makes me feel better.

We're staying in all day and I'm fixing fundido for the game/dinner. And maybe chili rellenos. Depending on how hungry we are at the time.

Yes, I cut-in butter if I'm making biscuits, but I bet I could use melted butter just fine now that I'm typing this. Did you cut in butter or melt it? And were you happy with the result?

I don't put any sweetener in my big batch of BTF either. I also use half coconut flour and half almond flour - just a personal preference.

Did you just add some BTF to your bacon grease, then add..... milk? I must know this because.... GRAVY!!

It sounds like you've got your snow day all set out!
What is fundido?

I use a miniature food processor to cut my butter in and I LOVE the result. I'm not the best at cutting in butter by hand.
Yes, I just added the BTF to the grease and added half and half. It was nice to have gravy but I need to work on reducing the "flour" taste.
Fundido is chorizo, browned and crumbled, covered with cheese and baked until brown and bubbly. Need I say how very yummy this is???

Hi ladies

At McD's I ordered a bunless burger. Sometimes I order a Mcdouble with a side salad
That is a cheap lunch.

KU pulled it out!!! WSU plays Wed. Too bad ISU got snickered.

I need to play with some biscuits.

Yup dogs and cars should be low carbers for health.
On the cat board I did mention that I was on Catkins, too.

LOL..

Snow is melting, but looks like Mary Kay on FB is having tons of it in Illinois..Hopefully
no tree limbs will fall on power lines.

Hopefully, Alex's timing of his shot in the a.m. won't be the time during my Bible Study.
This morning, his numbers didn't go up until 10:45, so that is when I can give him the shot and not before. So, I missed about 15 minutes of singing, but it was good to get out of the house..LOL..He is "healing"..Where is Oral Roberts when we need him??? LOL..

It makes me wonder if you can cut his insulin back a bit?? I think it's great you found good support on that board. You will learn so much more there than from your vet!

If I cut in butter (or add melted butter) I do them in the oven - they still look fairly white, but it's a nice texture.
Otherwise I do them in the microwave and then usually end up toasting the bread/biscuits.

I was thinking what you were thinking about cutting back the insulin but I have no experience with cats - only humans (who, let's face it, are far more unpredictable insofar as how you control what they put in their mouths and their erratic exercise).

I baked my biscuits in the oven yesterday and they got a lovely golden brown. I started at 8 min but went a few more. Sorry, I don't remember how many more. I just watched them. And they were so good! And I did cut in butter.

Can I just say......I'M SO SICK OF SNOW & WINTER!!!!!

Hi ladies..

Alex is getting 1 unit of insulin..During the night he can last 10 hours plus on this, but in the daytime, it lasts about 6 or 7 hours..Interesting.

Poor KCity..It is a bit cold here this morning and there are icy places, but the kids had school..

I was 141 on the scale this morning. Hard to believe, isn't it? My pants are looseish..But jeans still work..They are more flexible, I think.

Going to do biscuit research..

Hi!
I'm still alive!

We ended up with 13 inches of snow!!
I shoveled the sidewalk and most of the driveway this morning.
My car is still covered and that last bit a driveway at the street is piled high thanks to the snowplow!
The snow is so heavy and wet you have to take it off in layers!

I'll try to finish after I walk the dog this afternoon.
Luckily I didn't HAVE to go anywhere today!

Miss you all and hope to be back soon!

Mary Kay!!
Thanks for digging out to say hello!

Here is what I used, Carolyn (x4):

SOUTHERN BUTTERMILK BISCUITS (KCSoccer using Ouizoid's BTF mix)
Preheat oven to 425ºF. (I baked in toaster oven, because I didn't want to heat the whole oven for 2 biscuits.)

2 Tbs Oatfiber
1 Tbs coconut flour
1 Tbs almond flour
(I omitted whey protein powder)
1 Tbs egg white powder
1/2 tsp baking powder
Pinch of salt (about 1/8 tsp)
1/2 tsp glucomannan powder (I used one capsule, about 1/3 tsp. actually)

Mix all ingredients together and place bowl in refrigerator or freezer for a few minutes. You want all ingredients COLD.

1 Tbs cold unsalted butter
3 Tbs buttermilk

Cut the cold butter into the flour mixture with a pastry blender or two knives until the mixture looks like coarse cornmeal. Add buttermilk and stir until a shaggy dough forms (you may need to add more or less buttermilk, depending upon how absorbent your coconut flour is). Pat (or roll) out two biscuit shapes, about ¾ inch high and 2-3 inches in diameter. Place on a parchment lined baking sheet. Bake 10-12 minutes, until lightly browned. Makes 2 biscuits.

- - -
as Sandy noted, add a little more baking powder, a little more salt, use your food processor to cut in the butter...
It's just Ouizoid's mix (made with 1/2 coconut flour, 1/2 almond flour, rather than ALL coconut flour) plus the butter & buttermilk (and subsequently our group here likes extra bp & salt).
