Cloud Bread Lunch

I am slowly getting back on track. I am back in my home and getting back in the kitchen and making Cloud Bread.

A Walk In The Park

A Walk In The Park

I have never been a morning person, but now, I am becoming one since things are getting back to normal. I have found if I get up early before the sun is out full force, and go for my walk I manage my exercise better. Previously I tried to walk in the evening before it got dark, and when I was finished with every thing else or ran out of excuses. It was not working and it made me anxious.

It made me think of an older neighbor that we all waved to on our way to work. She would get up in the early morning and go out and sweep her sidewalk. Everyone said what a “go-getter” she was. She really was organized. One day I was telling her I was not a morning person; she said neither was she. She said she got up to wave to everyone and then went back to bed. That made me laugh since we all assumed she was cleaning all day. Apparently things are not as they seem.

I am trying to cut down on the carbs. I don’t see it lasting long, but I thought I would give it a try. I have lost a few pounds, although I hesitate to mention it since I feel a good cheeseburger would undo my small success.

And because I am trying to lose a little weight, I have been having harsh ambivalent feelings toward Marie Osmond. Have you seen her? She says she has lost 50 pounds on her new diet plan. Since I can’t eat what she is eating – it’s processed, I am wondering if she is telling me the complete truth or she is fooling me like my old neighbor. She is so sweet, but I said ….. sometimes things are not as the seem.

I must be the last person on the web that has not made Cloud Bread. I wondered what they were all about. They were pretty easy.

I whipped the egg whites first in a clean grease-free bowl. Then in another bowl I whipped the room temperature cream cheese and yolks and a pinch of salt. I then folded in a third of the whites to lighten the batter, then folded gently, so not to deflate the whites the remaining egg whites. I spread them on a lined sheetpan and baked at 325° for about 25 minutes.

I had a sandwich and froze the remaining cloud bread. I placed a piece of wax paper between each and then bagged them. When I took the frozen ones out later, I reheated them to restore their original texture.

    You aren’t the last one to make cloud bread, because even though I’ve pinned it and thought about it, I’ve yet to try it! I’ve seen some with herbs, such as rosemary which sounds good too. That is too funny about your sweeping neighbor! As for Marie Osmond, I am so sick of that commercial I often want to throw something at the TV! From now on I am going to remember your comment about processed food, and what phoney baloney some of these celebrities are! She probably has 12 personal trainers and several plastic surgeons 🙂 Glad you are untented, what an ordeal!

    • Ms. Lemon says:

      Rosemary sounds good. I even though a little parmesan would be good.

      Everytime I think of my former neighbor it makes me laugh.

      Thanks for stopping by Jenna.

  2. Penny says:

    I love the idea of the cloud bread Madonna. Will have to try it. I know you mentioned that your homes were being wrapped, but somehow missed the reason. Infestations? Getting up early does make a difference in my day, as long as I don’t spend that time on the computer. LOL.

    • Ms. Lemon says:

      If you live in Southern California and if your house is more than ten years old you can bet you have termites. They are starting to come up with different building materials that are resistant.

      We may all be spending too much time on the computer, but I probably won’t be stopping. 🙂

  3. Lorrie says:

    I’ve looked at Cloud Bread, but never tried it. Did you like it? I’m cutting back on carbs these days, too. Real food, less of it, and being judicious about my choices. No fake food. So glad you are back in your home. What a process!

    • Ms. Lemon says:

      Hi Lorrie, I think I would use it as an open-faced sandwich. I am sure I will not give up all carbs, but I am trying to find a way around bread… my weakness.

      I got a fitbit for Christmas and it is helping me keep track of exercise and calorie input.

      • Lorrie says:

        I made some this evening and put a cream cheese veggie spread on it. I’m very pleased. As you said, it works well as an open-faced sandwich. I use a fitbit, too, but find that I can’t keep the weight off simply by exercising anymore – I need to watch my carb intake, too. And bread is a weakness of mine, especially fresh bread with lots of butter!
        Thanks for sharing!

  4. Kitty says:

    I read about cloud bread a few years back, but never made it, Madonna. Good for you for trying it. I do watch my carbs, and have for going on 18 years now. I can’t believe it’s been that long! Usually when I have a hamburger, I eat it without the bun. Maybe I should try the cloud bread instead? Did you like it?

    • Ms. Lemon says:

      Hi Kitty, I was just kidding about the cheeseburger. I don’t really eat burgers much anymore, but I do love bread. Cloud bread is not the total answer, but it is one more tool to a different way of eating.

      As always, nice to hear from you.

      M.

  5. Kitty says:

    I’m sorry, that I forgot to ask about what happened to your home?

  6. Laurie says:

    lol, I haven’t made cloud bread yet either! As I’m reading your post, I realize your thoughts mirror some of my own thoughts lately. I’d like to cut out some carbs, I’m not a morning person and I’ll just say, I do think about cheeseburgers when I’m not satisfied. Glad to hear things are getting back to normal. Pinning your recipe 🙂

  7. Monique says:

    Geesh Louise..that is a real drag..sorry to be so blunt but what a pain..

    on top of how you are feeling..

    you live in a gorgeous neighbourhood and the tent is a bit Cirque Du Soleil but I cannot imagine anything circusy about that,,again poor you..

    Take care Madonna..

    • Ms. Lemon says:

      Thanks Monique. I think you described it well; it does look like Cirque Du Soleil. I hesitated to show the negative side of living in a warm climate, and then I thought what the heck, we are all friends here. The good news is I am termite free and I got to have a pajama party with my sister.

  8. You are not the last person on the web to not have made Cloud Bread, I hadn’t even heard of it. 😀 Your lunch looks delicious made with the bread. BTW, now that I know that you live in Southern California…you might look for the tortillas I used for the quesadillas at Target, looking on their wed site I think they carry them in your area.

  9. You are so special Madonna! You make me laugh! I love the story about your neighbor.
    It makes me think about when I was 4 years old. I wanted so bad to be in kindergarten (even though it wasn’t possible for another year) that I would get on my bike every morning and put a bunch of books in the basket. I would ride down the street past the crossing guard and wave to her as I went past, hoping she’d think I was really grown up and went to school. Then I’d ride around the block, the other way and go home. In the afternoon, I’d do the whole thing in reverse.
    Haha! I’ve never made Cloud Bread, so you’ve definitely introduced me to something new. It looks wonderful!

    • Ms. Lemon says:

      Chris, your story is so cute. I think you are still riding that bike as fast as you can. 🙂

      btw, your kitchen is gorgeous and I am loving your videos.

  10. Miz Helen says:

    Your Cloud Bread looks so interesting, I can’t wait to give it a try! Hope you are having a great day and thanks so much for sharing with us at Full Plate Thursday!
    Come Back Soon,
    Miz Helen

  11. I haven’t made cloud bread either. Really should give it a try — it sounds so nice. I’m definitely not a morning person, although as the weather gets warmer, we do get up a bit earlier and do our morning walk (about an hour) before breakfast. Too hot to do it later!

  12. Susan says:

    So glad you’re back, Madonna! What a mess to have to go through. Believe it or not, I hadn’t even heard of Cloud Bread so no doubt I will be the last to make it 🙂 It looks delicious! I am not a morning exercise person either but I do applaud those who do. Maybe one day. Or, at least I could get out my broom 🙂 Cute story!
