Gluten Free Multi- Grain Bread

Multi- Grain Gluten Free Bread – Canucks On Wheels

Multi Grain GF Bread Mix from the Bulk Barn in Canada 🇨🇦

This recipe is for a 2 lb loaf in a bread maker.

1-1/2 Cup of warm water

4 Tbsp of Coconut Oil (do not melt)

3 Cups GF Bread Mix

1/4 tsp Xantham Gum

2 tsp of Rapid (Instant) Yeast

Add to your pan in the above order.

Start your breadmaker on Basic Bread setting

2 lb load and Medium Crust( do not use the GF setting)

Using a spatula move the mixture around to help incorporate as your machine starts mixing.

This is where you will notice the gluten free dough appears very dry and dense. Slowly start adding more water until the dough starts to actually resemble bread dough.

I didn’t measure just kept adding. Guessing another 1/8 a 1/4 of a cup of water. Be your own judge.

Close lid and let machine do it’s job!

Rv Mods – Drawer Covers

It’s not a matter of if, but when!

This past summer we had an unexpected visitor move into our Rv! We got the surprise one morning when we open up our cutlery drawer and surprise, something left us a turd!!

Yes, you guessed it, a fricken mouse!!

Grrr, now everything has to be completely cleaned and sanitized. These things creep me right out! Ok truth be told, I am scared shitless of them. Yes I know they are smaller than me, but nope not happening. I will scream like a little school girl, and I am not afraid to admit it.

Any plans Myron had that day were now put on the hold, as he now was on a search and destroy mission!

Aha, a section of our underbelly had come lose and allowed for a perfect entry point for the mouse to get in.

With traps set, it didn’t take long and snap…….. we caught the bugger!!!

We always knew it wasn’t a matter of if we would get a mouse, but a matter of when! We thought we had mouse proof our rig, but sometimes they just get in!

Not wanting them to ever get near our cutlery again. Myron came up with these sweet drawer covers.

He already had this clear heavy plastic material similiar to Lexan in his mobile shop, so he figured it would work perfect for the job.

Strong enough to hold my glass of wine!!

He used Velcro to temporarily hold them securely in place until we find the right fasteners.

They work awesome, another fabulous idea!

RV Mods – Drinking Water

We thought we would show you what we do for drinking water.

This idea is just super cool! We can’t take any credit for it, as our friends Roger and Collene installed this in their Cougar trailer. We loved the idea so much that Myron got busy!

He installed a separate water tap next to my kitchen tap for our dedicated drinking water.

Then install a 12v pump and switch.

Finally he ran a water line that feeds to our refillable water jugs.

It fits neatly tucked away under our sink so we don’t have to trip on the jug.

Genius I tell ya!!

The Adventure

” If we were meant to stay in one place, we’d have roots instead of feet” – Rachel Wolchon

Today marks 1 year since we moved into our 5th wheel.

July 22,2017 we officially moved out of our house.

It was time to start the final demo on the last 2 rooms in the house.

We are pretty luck, we have 2 amazing and talented kids. They stepped up and helped Myron finish the renovations.

The master bedroom and bathroom were completely gutted and redone.

Our son Randy installed all our flooring, and he did an amazing job!

The only thing left in the kitchen was the completion of the backsplash. Our daughter Courtney picked out the tiles and our son Randy did all the installation.

Now with the inside done, the outside needed a facelift. Again our kids, son in-law Glenn and our friend Gwen stepped up. Without their help we wouldn’t have completed by the deadline as we were both still working full-time. For that we are thankful!!

Renovation now completed and it was finally time to purge our stuff.

We sold, gave away and donated whatever we didn’t want to keep.

With the house emptied, now it came time for Myron’s shop. This was a challenge to say the least. He still planned on doing upholstery when we are back in Canada, so that meant he still needed to keep a lot of his supplies.

Anyone that knows Myron knows if you need it, he will have it!

It took about a week and a half and it was finally done.

And on October 31, we said our final goodbye to the house that we raised our children in and locked the front door for the last time, as the next chapter of our story began.

Cocopah Casino

We decided that Yuma,AZ would be our next stop as there is so much to see and do in the area. We decided instead of staying out in the desert that we would blacktop camp at Cocopah Casino just south of Yuma. The casino will allow you to stay in their RV parking lot for $6.00/night or $35.00/ week. This is just blacktop camping with no hookups. They do have level sites, security that drives around, and daily garbage pick up.

A view from the RV parking lot looking at the casino.

The RV sites are wide enough to have your slides out and be able to park beside your rig.

Unfortunately we didn’t get to cross as much off our list as we had planned, we did however spent quite a bit of time at the Foothills Animal Hospital in Yuma. Our little Miss Bella ended up with stuvite bladder stones that required emergency surgery.

The surgery went great, Miss Bella is doing fantastic and has healed quite nicely.

We did manage to take in some Yuma history which I will post in another blog.

We are hoping to make it back to Yuma later this winter to cross more off our list.
