Day 2 Jamaica trip 2024

I’m writing this post a few weeks after returning to Ottawa but the next few days I wrote while I was in Jamaica. It was a very busy trip but this was a day I got to stay at the resort. Jewel Paradise Cove while my friend figured out our plans for the remainder of the week.  The resort posts the activity schedule on the app, on tv’s in the room, and on a screen in the lobby. I had seen that there was a resort tour at 11:00. I have stayed in many resorts and it usually the company that you booked with doing these tours. I liked that there was no need to wait for a specific tour rep and the hotel was doing this. My friend was out up and early for the garden tour. I slept in and went for breakfast at 10:30. I wanted my friend to come in the hotel tour with me because I have no sense of direction but we later discovered we weren’t getting each others text messages and I thought she was still on the garden tour.  I had received my friends text that she was disappointed there were no plantai

Tasty Easy no flour pancakes and snow days - December 18, 2016


We have had many snow days in Coquitlam in the last few weeks. This is not normal usually it snows once a year and its gone the next day. The temperatures are remaining low this year and although pretty it makes commuting difficult. I have cancelled attending a few things as it is too difficult to commute we get wet snow here so there is a lot of ice everywhere.  Downtown Vancouver was a little different you can't even tell there was any snow there some days were even nice and sunny with temperatures of -1 or -2 compared to -7 or less in other areas. I am grateful that we now have a skytrain close by as the path to get to the skytrain is cleared so I am able to commute much easier than before.

As it is holiday season with lots of eating and treats here is something that feels luxurious but is actually easy and healthy. I saw the recipe in a magazine and I went from memory when making them so adjusted things to my taste.











Easy No Flour Pancakes

1 ripe banana
1/4 of a cup Almond Butter
2 eggs


The recipe said  to mash the banana with a fork then mix the other ingredients. I just put everything in the magic bullet. I couldn't remember the rest of the recipe so i put ghee on my griddle pan and cooked like I would any pancake. The first one I had the heat too high as this is a little softer than a regular pancake so it cooked to fast and fell apart. After I  lowered the heat and poured the batter a little thicker they turned out like crepes in texture. They tasted like a banana pancake a little sweet with nothing on them but i like that. Add a little nut butter, honey or maple syrup to the top and these are a great breakfast.

Update
I made it a second time this time I added macadamia nuts to it. Turned out much better than the first time.
