We are so muddy in north central Missouri, and perhaps all over the Midwest, but i only know about my little piece the world that i cannot even drive into the pasture with a Gator. Back to walking and wearing my tall rubber boots to ford the running water. The 19th of March is supposed to be spring, but the typical telltale signs are far from sight.
When Dallas was younger but old enough to mow June’s lawn, he would invariably NOT mow the fairy rings which grew in her yard during the fall (after all it is dangerous and unlucky!). Fairy rings grow in wet, humid conditions – not necessarily hot, but certainly not cold. But what causes these mushrooms to grow in a circular or semi-circular pattern with such consistency?
Well, beyond the obvious reason that it is caused by fairies and elves dancing in circles, the answer is just as mysterious and inconclusive. In fact, there seem to be more folklore tales than ‘scientific’ proposals!
Blah, blah, blah – i’m going with the dancing fairies, elves, and pixies!
He wha tills the fairies’ green Nae luck again shall hae : And he wha spills the fairies’ ring Betide him want and wae. For weirdless days and weary nights Are his till his deein’ day. But he wha gaes by the fairy ring, Nae dule nor pine shall see, And he wha cleans the fairy ring An easy death shall dee.
8-10 ounces of grass finished ground beef or lamb or home made beef or lamb sausage
1 cup pizza sauce
Optional ingredients i usually add: sliced black olives and sliced fresh mushrooms, extra cheese
Preheat the oven to 350°F .
Use a Ninja Blender (mine is called a Fit Blender i believe) or some other type.
In a large bowl, combine the almond flour, pumpkin, sesame flour, ground flax seed, 1 cup of the mozzarella cheese, onion powder, and sea salt. Mix well. Then i add the two large eggs, 1/4 cup olive oil, and the water. Mix and combine thoroughly.
Butter a 10″ x 15″ pan (i use a stone jelly roll pan). Place the dough on the pan, then spread the dough by hand. You may have to keep your fingers wet using olive oil or water to keep it from sticking to your hands.
Bake for 20 minutes.
When you are ready, spread the pizza sauce, i sprinkle some Parmesan cheese if i have any, but usually i don’t, so i use some shredded raw cheddar or whatever i have on hand. Then crumble the cooked meat on top of that followed by optional olives and/or fresh mushrooms. Top with remaining mozzarella or other cheese. Bake for another 12 minutes.
Cut into about 12 pieces; this is very filling. One piece may fill you right up!
