Rosa Parks Featherlite Peanut Butter Pancakes

In honor of International Pancake Day, I wanted to make pancakes for lunch. Since it was Black History Month, why not Rosa Parks featherlite peanut butter pancakes.

I didn’t have all the ingredients, so I did some improvising. Used wheat flour instead of white flour, and almond butter instead of peanut butter. Then I used dried egg whites instead of real eggs. That last substitution is not recommended. The final product fell apart easily. If I remember my home economics, eggs act as a binding agent. The dried egg whites failed me here.

The result was quite yummy. Also quite filling. I was only able to eat half of the 16 small pancakes I made. So I will be eating the remainder tomorrow.

Atari Lynx

I was inspired by the Classic Game Room review of the Atari Lynx. There is actually some titles for the Lynx that I would like to play, so I leaped on to Ebay. So like I always do, I over-payed for an Atari Lynx II with 27 games. I have never owned a hand-held game console. No gameboy or Vita for me. Well, I have if you include those Mattel hand-helds from the 70s. And I did buy that Dingoo A320.

I did this at a time when I am trying to get rid of crap. So I need to get rid of two things to compensate for taking on this one thing. Time to go into the retro collection pile and find some things to sell or toss out. I really don’t want the label of being a hoarder.

CeraVe Day 6

I received my first big tub of CeraVe last Tuesday. I have been using it ever since fairly diligently. I took an empty hotel shampoo mini-bottle and filled with CeraVe, and I plopped it into my pocket. I am trying to reapply every time I wash my hands or after a couple hours. Also occasionally apply to my feet, but not quite as frequently.

The conclusion after this brief period:  Not a cure, but an excellent treatment. My immune system is still attacking my skin. The steroid goop is supposed to suppress this, but failing. I can feel my skin is thickening with time. But the CeraVe seems to be preventing my skin from chalking, peeling, cracking then bleeding. I am very pleased so far. I appear to finally have something, after over a decade of trying to figure something out.

I purchased this initial tub off of Amazon. Nearly $17 for 16 ounces. I went to two Cubs and a Super Target, but no CeraVe. Today I went to the Shakopee Walgreens, and they had the big tub, as well as an even pricier pump bottle. No price break – the price to have Amazon ship it to my house was the same as buying it at Walgreens. But Walgreens did have a generic knock-off. Simply called “Moisturizing Lotion with Ceramides”. Ceramides is the magic ingredient here. The generic went for $11 for 12 ounces in a pump bottle. I purchased one and will give it a try.

So it would appear I have a victory in this latest round of set-backs I have had lately. I can’t say my mood has dramatically improved, but I think outside elements are preventing that  from occurring. This is a beauty cream, maybe if I used it on my face as well.
