Hurricane Weather & Baking

It’s been a strange day of waiting and watching. Hurricane Laura hit the Louisiana coast at Cameron in the early am hours as I held my breath. I have a dear friend and family that live in the Lake Charles area and I was really scared for them all. Flashbacks of weathering Hurricane Ivan in Florida all those years ago still rise and feel so vivid.

I live only 5 miles from the LA MS border so sometimes I feel as if LA is where I live.

I’m thankful to hear this morning that my dear friend Mary is fine along with family. I feel like even with the destruction we all dodged a bullet that could have been so much worse. But I am still nervous about seeing the damage.

At the moment I can’t watch the news because we have no power today. I’m not complaining. Just stating a fact. I’m very grateful that’s my only problem today.

Before the storm hit I stayed busy baking a new batch of bread. Wanna see?

I call these “Blissful Buns”

These make perfect sandwich or hamburger buns and only have 5 carbs!

They are very filling and although they don’t have the exact same texture and taste as regular buns or bread I think it’s a game changer for me because I no longer have to eat my burgers rolled up in a lettuce leaf!! And sandwiches in general are back on my keto menu because of this recipe!

You can find the recipe here Keto bread recipe.

Their recipe makes smaller buns with only 2 carbs. I have doubled the recipe ingredients and only made 7 buns so that’s why mine have 5 carbs and the recipe says 2. We just like the larger size buns. Even at 5 carbs that’s a sight better than the usual 16-20 or more carbs any bun or sandwich would have.

And luck y I made these yesterday because today our power is out due to high winds and a fallen tree somewhere between us and the highway.

See what a pretty sandwich the buns make!
