This is how the online dictionary defines ‘chaos’ – The behavior of systems that follow deterministic laws but appear random and unpredictable. Chaotic systems are very sensitive to initial conditions; small changes in those conditions can lead to quite different outcomes.
Hmmm . . . small changes can lead to quite different outcomes . . . Interesting. No wonder the last week felt like chaos.
In my case, the small changes were one of my son’s two children and my other son’s dog (if you can call a creature that weighs about 3 pounds and is about 6 inches long a dog) coming to visit for a week. Apparently even 5 year olds and teeny tiny dogs come to Florida for Spring Break.
My normal household consists of one adult female (me), one dog (normal sized) and one cat except for every other weekend when one adult male (my husband) comes home from his job in California. The dog, cat and I respect each other’s spaces and food. We get along in perfect harmony.
So with my hubby home for the whole week (yeah!) the kiddos (yeah again!) and the extra dog (who respects no one’s space or food) and me waging an internal war against yucky bugs and generally feeling like crap (which is pretty appropriate since apparently that is how the dead bugs exit the body and you do a lot of THAT!) is was a pretty, well, chaotic week.
I watched “Horton Hears a Who” once, played Go Fish! 56 times, watched “Ed, Ed and Eddy” 101 times, did 149 loads of laundry, washed the floor 167 times and looked for the tiny dog about 1,000 times.
All in all – a great week!
Now that the kiddos and midget dog are gone, the house is back to normal (except for the little pet shop animals and Pokémon I keep finding in really odd places) the animals are starting to recover from the trauma of a minuscule doggy in their faces and food at all times and it is time for pancakes!
These Gluten-free Lemon Ricotta Pancakes are really light, almost soufflé-like and they will deflate a bit if they sit for too long but they are still delicious.
By the way, these are very low carb and I have made them with full fat, part skim and fat free ricotta. I didn’t like the fat free but the part skim is totally fine. I have also made them with 8 ounces of cream cheese instead of the ricotta, and that’s really good too!
Yum! With the first bite I feel the stress joy of the last week just melt away!

Gluten Free Lemon Ricotta Pancakes Recipe
4 eggs – separated
Scoop about 1/3 cup of the mixture onto the griddle for each pancake. The batter will be really fluffy so I push it down slightly with the bottom of the measuring cup to flatten it out a bit. Cook over medium low heat until browned on the bottom and the batter is cooked through (about 5 minutes). Flip over and cook until the pancakes feel firm to the touch. This just takes another minute or two.
