Well, hello blog. I'm sorry I haven't had much time for you lately. It's not that you don't mean anything to me, but unfortunately, I haven't been able to spend as much time with you as I'd like.
Life sure can be hectic with two little boys running around under my feet and other commitments of my own. I don't know about you, but I cannot seem to achieve all that I want to achieve during any given day. It's so frustrating.
One thing I have achieved lately is making a delicious snack that satisfies the tastebuds of my boys and my husband, and my unrelenting desire to cut back on refined sugar and carbs. I guess you could say we are moving towards the clean eating idea. I would like us to move there immediately with no backwards steps tomorrow, but my family have other ideas.
I do buy organic wherever possible, I have stopped buying sugar, but I still haven't managed to get away from white flour all the time. We hardly eat loaves of bread anymore as such, but I do make crackers, tortillas or baguettes most weeks. And invariably, I use mainly white flour as this is what my husband prefers. Baby steps, baby steps...
If you, or your kids, prefer a smoother consistency, before you make the paste, throw the dry ingredients into the TM bowl and grind for perhaps 5-8 seconds on speed 9 to make a chunky powder (is that an oxymoron?) which you can then set aside until required. So far, my kids are all good with the chunkier texture.
