My cholesterol is ok . . not bad . . not great. I recently had a calcium coronary scan and found that I have one artery that’s 50% blocked but the doctor said they don’t usually do anything for a 50% blockage. He said that even though y cholesterol isn’t bad and has improved over the last 2 years, some would still recommend a statin type med and I said no .. not taking that. We talked about options and decided to try oatmeal every day and red rice yeast supplements and re-do my bloodwork in 3 months. So, or 2 weeks, I’ve been having steel cut oats for breakfast. I love oatmeal and cooking it in the pressure cooker is quick and easy. I usually make enough for 3 or 4 days and keep in the fridge and reheat it each morning. I add fruit and less and less honey except that one morning, I threw in a few chocolate chips!
This morning, Vince said “Are we having oatmeal . . again?” Hey dude . . you have a 50% blocked artery too!
I said no . . we’re having a treat and what a treat we had! The lady who has the Pressure Cooking Today website with all the yummy pressure cooker recipes, also has Barbara Bakes and there are lots of baked goodies there. I am not much of a baker but last night clicked on the Barbara Bakes site because she’s going to have the pecan pie granola recipe there today, which is what we’re having tomorrow morning with Pumpkin Steel Cut Oats . . back on the oatmeal regimen.
While at Barbara Bakes, I found the recipe for Peaches and Cream Ebleskivers! Oh, yum! I had buttermilk. I had whipping cream and I had peaches! I knew what we were having for breakfast today.
Batter and chopped peaches . . ready to go.
Here they are . . peach filling in the middle . . kinda like little pancake balls.
I probably just ruined 2 weeks of eating oatmeal . . peach ebleskivers with maple syrup and whipped cream . . and bacon. It sure was good! Maybe my headstone should read “She Loved Bacon and Sugar!” 🙂
