 “Rest is not idleness, and to lie sometimes on the grass under trees on a summer's day, listening to the murmur of the water, or watching the clouds float across the sky, is by no means a waste of time.” .....JOHN LUBBOCK


 Enjoying the summer day under my pergola, I watched the beautiful white clouds
gathering in that Texas blue sky...

 All at once, they started turning GRAY....hoping it rains....

We always need rain out here in West Texas...
but I'm so so sorry for the people in Louisiana.
Another kind of CLOUD....
of which I have absolutely NO IDEA what it is....or does...or ANYthing..

Cloud computing

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Cloud computing metaphor: For a user, the network elements representing the provider-rendered services are invisible, as if obscured by a cloud.
Cloud computing is a type of Internet-based computing that provides shared computer processing resources and data to computers and other devices on demand.

...ever heard of CLOUD BREAD...???
meee, either...
until NOW.

 ...almost NO carbs

 They make a fantastic sandwich....
Mr. Sweet gave his stamp of approval.

If YOU are watching your carb intake...
and want nothing WHITE, so are skipping
any thing white in the kitchen...
meaning NO bread...

then I hope you will give these egg "buns" a try.

This was my first time to make them and when I make them again,
I know to beat those egg whites a little more...a little fluffier will
make the "bun" a little thicker.

They aren't BREAD....
they are made from eggs and so light, you'd think
you are eating cotton candy....
but they are tasty...and so FUN.

Be sure to let me know if you try them...
and if you like them...

LOVE, bj


OOPS....I forgot to add my mosaic photo.
Sorry, Maggie


  1. The grate adds a nice effect but makes the sky look like it's in jail!

  2. Your cloud pics are gorgeous and I'm so happy your area is getting rain. As usual, we are getting a ton. Go figure.

    I'm back on the low carb program and this sounds perfect. You take what you can get when you cut out all that white stuff. My son lost 40 pounds in 2 months and he is adamant about keeping it off. He might just appreciate having his luncheon meat and cheese on this. Thanks!!!!


  3. Beautiful clouds . . .
    Our white clouds turned grey . . . skies turned grey . . . and the rains arrived.
    A full day of rain . . .
    I need some of your bread to go with the soup I am making tomorrow . . .
    Cooler weather arriving . . .

  4. bj, how nice to see comments from you on my poor old blog! I keep waiting for the urge to blog again but so far nothing. Yes, the fires are near me. Straight up the freeway..and into the mountains..sometimes I can smell the smoke. Not a good thing to smell. Those poor firefighters in this terrible heat. Yep...California is burning again this year. The thought of the animals always upsets me.
    I loved your cloud picture...that's one of my favorite subject's...clouds! Love the song too.
    Those buns look fantastic....

  5. love those pretty cloud pictures!! what a pretty sky!

  6. Goodness that looks so darn tasty. Love the clouds and the blue sky:). Have a blessed day dear B. J. Hugs

  7. Great photos of the clouds. You have a beautiful yard. When I am walking and there are clouds I like to see what animals the clouds look like. Your cloud bread looks so good. Have a blessed day. Madeline

  8. I so enjoy that back yard of yours BJ! I felt like I was sitting beside you watching the clouds go by -- and I just may have to borrow that quote for a future post! Happy Sunday~ Jackie xxx

  9. You must have been on cloud 9 watching those puffy clouds from your swaying red swing.

  10. Ahhh that is what summer is about. Watching the clouds roll by in the pretty blue skies. Happy New Week Ahead bj.

  11. Hi bj, we've gotten lots of rain here in central Texas...did you get any? It really has cooled us down which is so nice for the end of August! Hope y'all got some too. I think I've had some of that neighbor gave me some. It was delicious!

  12. How fun. They look delicious. I hope you got some rain. We got oodles of it. It doesn't feel like August.

  13. Wonderful clouds in the sky through your pergola! And nicely paired with cloud buns.

  14. You have just the perfect spot to watch the clouds go by.

  15. You do an amazing job on your post with the photos and the neat little tricks you do. You could make anything look good. However, in your case, food is always delicious and you captured great cloud formations.

  16. That bird DOES look like she's gonna have babies! I love your yard and patio, so pretty!

  17. I would love to try that looks wonderful! Love those big summery clouds too! Hope you have a good evening my friend. Hugs, Diane

  18. I agree with you about rest not being wasted time! Beautiful sky. I saw a recipe for cloud bread on FB and wondered about it, and now that I have a recommendation I believe I will try it!

  19. I've never really cared for the cloud thing in computers

  20. Clouds are outstanding this time of year. I never inderstood the whole icloud stuff and I have to make this bread!

  21. I love your pergola, BJ.
    The Cloud Buns sound intriguing and I will certainly give them a try as I LOVE a good burger and always feel a little guilty about the bun.

  22. Oh wonderful cloud photography and that cloud bread looks so yummy ~ great foodie shots!

    Happy Week to you ~ ^_^

  23. Yum, I'd say a ham and cheese sammie with your cherry tomatoes would be perfection. Beautiful view from your pergola, now I've got "West Texas Wind" in my head for the week, (;

  24. "I've looked at clouds from both sides now..." is running through my head after reading your post. Clouds are beautiful things! Love your food photos. The cloud bread is new to me, but I'll be checking it out. Have a great week.

  25. I am a sucker for cloud pictures and now the cloud bread on top of my next burger? I pinned that recipe. Looks good and easy. Thanks. Your pics are very nice. Love the chubby little birdie.

  26. Hmm. They sound interesting. I'll take your word for it. I'll have to try.
    Thanks for sharing.

  27. Hi BJ,
    The cloud buns look interesting however I think I'll stick to the real thing! Your cloud captures are lovely, the food styling magazine worthy and the little bird so cute but I can't spot your photo mosaic?

    1. My silly self forgot to add the mosaic...but it's on there now...sorry, Maggie

  28. Hello bj, Your cloud photos are a great study of cloud formations. Your home is in a beautiful place. I want to make some of that bread. YUM!
    Happy blue Monday,
    Love, jeanne

  29. Love that quote! Cloud bread? It looks good ♥

  30. I think we would enjoy this cloud bread! (i just did a similar post on clouds!--maybe we were looking at the same clouds!). I am going to try this bread as we are doing low carbs now. Thanks for posting it.

  31. Beautiful clouds in the sky and yummy clouds to eat... I think you have clouds covered! Have a great week!
