Feeding tube awareness

Feeding tube awareness is important. O have a feeding tube. I’ve had them on and off for the past few years.

I have had NJ tubes which go into your nose and to your small intestines and right now I have PEGJ tube which goes into my small intestines.

Every day I wake up and make my feeding tube forumla the kind I use is called real food blends. I put it in a blender with water. I then strain it into a bowl then wash the strainer off and the blender then I strain it into the blender again then I wash the strainer off and bowl off and then strain it back into the bowl and then wash the blender off and strainer and strain it into the blender I then get my feeding tube bags that I use and put the mixed strained real food blends into the bag. I close the bag turn the bag upside down and put my fingers on the blue longer part of the bag and squeeze lightly to get the air out of the bag and then prime the line that will connected to my feeding tube the one that goes into my PEGJ that hangs outside my stomach.

It takes lots of work but I would be doing this even if I was eating. I do this sometimes 3 times a day depending on what my body handles a day.

I’m thankful for this that saves my life

And if you give me a cake I’d be like I’m good, because its not cookies, so since I love cookies so much. When I was told that I was allergic to a lot foods, I had to go out and find ways to make different things.

But back to cookies so a few days ago I was wanting some chocolate chip cookies and I wanted them bad, so I pulled together everything I had to make them, and I, being me, was trying to find a recipe to work with and I couldn’t find a good one till, well, today. I found this recipe and I had to change it a tad, but it works and the cookies I made are so amazing.

So here is how you start off

Ingredients

eggs – 1 full egg and 1 egg yolk.

2 ½  cups flour (I used one and ¼  cup oatmeal flour and one and ¼  cup tapioca flour)

½ teaspoon baking soda

1 cup Brown Sugar packed

½ teaspoon salt

1 teaspoon vanilla extract

½ cup raw sugar (you can use white sugar I used raw)

¾ cup butter (I used dairy butter but any butter works.)

2 cups chocolate chips (I use enjoy life chocolate chips)

 

  1. I preheat the oven to 325 degrees F (165 degrees C) line cookie sheet with butter or cooking spray or parchment paper, I only had butter so I used butter and they worked good. (I basically just put butter all over the cookie sheet)
  2. Sift together flours, baking soda, and salt, set to the side.
  3. In a bigish bowl I used my kitchen aid that makes everything easier. Butter that has been at room temperature for a while (mine was about two hours) and sugars together, I let it blend together for about 5 minutes to get that creaminess I feel it works better.
  4. Add vanilla, egg and egg yolk and beat until well blended, (I let my eggs sit at room temperature for a little while you don’t have to do this step but I think it helps.)
  5. After the eggs and vanilla are really well mixed together add the flour, baking soda and salt, Now be careful not to add it to fast. I add it slowly and then just till its blended then add the chocolate chips and let sit at room temperature for about ten minutes if its still kind of not right looking let it sit longer.
  6. Put on pan anyway you please and then bake for 10-16 minutes my cookies happen to be big so they cooked for 16 minutes.
  7. Let cool and enjoy!

So that my best chocolate chip cookie recipe!! I hope you all have a good Shay-De foodie Friday!
