The Roof Reno

Before (top photo) After (bottom photo)
I must say that I was very worried about what the roof was going to be like under all the layers of roofing. We had 3 layers of roofing on the extension (flat roof) and 4! layers on the old flat part of the roof. Goes to show you that people don't want to do things the right way. Makes me soo sad. But that is why Chris and I are here to help this little place out!
This is a before on the flat extension.
Before looking out the front window
First layer is off the extension

Second layer is off the extension
all the layers are off
Adding on the new roof
Almost done end of first day
OMG the bin is pretty full and its just with the flat part of the roof!
Second day. Working on the front part of the roof
Adding the under layer

And done! All I have to say is why have the stress of leaking going on and not fix the problem. Its sad to see how badly taken care of this house was. One step at a time and we are making this house better and better. One day it will be 100% fixed up.

 Today I will be talking about basic cooking for cactus peddles. I find that they taste like green peppers pretty much. One thing I will say is be careful when cleaning the peddles I don't want you to prick yourself.

3 cactus peddles (mine came in a pack of 3)
a small spoon of oil if you wish
 So the first step is to clean the peddles.
Take your paddle and place it flat on your cutting board. Then take your knife and cut away from you you want to take off the darker bumps where the thorns grow as well as the thorns, trying not to peel off all the outer dark green skin. Once you do that you will take a peeler peel around the hole outside of the peddle. You can see all of this in this top photo.
 Cut the peddles up how ever you would like
 Time To boil the peddles for 10 min till they become olive green like the next photo

 Then Its time to fry with a little bit of oil or just some water till all the slime comes out of them, and they start to brown.

And here is how I had them. With my beef less tips, mashed potatoes, broccolini. You can also eat them in a tortilla! Just have fun with it. Have you ever had cactus paddles? And if so what did you do with them?
