It looks like she just slid eggs out of the pan and threw in the bread. And actually...this is how I usually make toast these days. ☺️

I make all of the bread we eat in the household.  Last year during my husband's furlough we were going through multiple loaves each week and one day we were grilling some hot dogs for lunch and my son got up right as we were getting ready to grill and wanted some too (he works night shifts). I only had enough buns on hand for my husband and I, but I had loaf bread.  So, we put our heads together and I said I could make cowboy toast for the extra buns.  Well. after we tried butter toasted bread instead of a bun for a hot dog, we have never gone back to buns, we all prefer the toasted bread.

Cowboy toast got its name from my daughter, when she was about 4.  With my son in school it was just her and I for lunch.  I asked her if she had any requests for lunch and she said toast. But the sandwich kind of toast.  Okay. She's four. I had no idea what sandwich toast was.  She said "the kind of toast you make with a toast-in-cheese sandwich, but no cheese" then she rolled her eyes at me. OH! so you want toast in a pan, not the toaster? YES! So, she pulls up her stool to watch me at the stove and I buttered up the bread on one side and toasted it in the pan and was about to flip it, and she stopped me.  NO MOM! Sandwich toast is only crunchy on ONE SIDE. I made a flippant remark how this is probably how a cowboy makes his toast on an open fire...and she called it Cowboy Toast from then on.  She still prefers her toast cowboy style...

I also toast english muffins and bagels in a pan with a bit of butter.  It is just me here and I am lazy sometimes and don't want to drag out the toaster oven.

Throwing bread in the pan to soak up the egg grease is pretty classic.

I was always a hotdog bun purist, but last weekend I had a veggie dog on two smashed King's Hawaiian rolls and I'm a convert now.

Thanks for finding this picture.  I know Janelle takes care of the dog, but the dog looks like she would just be off shaking her head somewhere with her dog friends like “you’re not going to believe the nonsense I heard today.” and then a play-by-play of all the Brown shenanigans would spread through the dog community.

I am getting second-hand claustrophobia from the thought of trying to walk from one end of that RV to another without stepping on two dogs, my daughter, and whatever random crap is laying around that place.  And I'm not a dog owner, but does Janelle just open the door and let the dogs run free amongst the prairie dogs and pine trees?  Wouldn't both of her dogs head straight for the cool water of the plague pond?  Does she just let them back in the RV after they've roamed?  I mean, does she use her precious water to bathe them after they've been rolling around in prairie dog poo?

My concern for these dogs increases every time she mentions them.

And here it is! The obligatory I-finally-went-to-the-gym-after-weeks-of-travel. Next, we’ll get the “my diet has been crap, it’s time to promote another gimmick”. 

I don’t understand why it’s SO HARD for this woman. You can exercise wherever you go, it’s called walking or running. It’s called squats and pushups. Or doing stairs in the hotel (if you have them). There are no excuses, this uninspiring loaf just doesn’t want to. 

Also with the food during travel, she complains (I’m waiting for that post from her). I’m a celiac with a dairy allergy who doesn’t eat meat and I find healthy foods when I travel and have way more restrictions than she does. It’s not always easy, but I either find stuff or make my own to bring. 

Janelle is always so full of the same excuses. And the “importance of choosing the right gym” is evident to her?!? After all theee years? You don’t say, Janelle.

Maybe her dogs don't like water? I've had several "water dog" breeds and not a single one of them liked water. One wouldn't even walk through puddles. Bred to hunt, it turns out she was a delicate flower better suited to long naps on linen sheets...

Because I can't say it enough, I am baffled at her consistent easter island head selfies.

Does she not look at them before she publishes them for the world to see? You'd think one of those three thousand kids would say something to her. She must think they look great. Meri and Janelle, polar opposite of selfies.

This! As a self-proclaimed "health and wellness" coach, she should be offering tips for how to maintain an exercise regimen while traveling - not making excuses. The point of being a coach is to help people through obstacles!

From Janelle's instagram story - first she details how the monsoon rains came last night and says "I survived...it's definitely different from living in a house" and she's sure experienced RV-ers are laughing at her. She did wear a bit of pink lipstick this time.

Taking into consideration that the "pond" is a retention pool for run-off water from melting snow in the early spring and periodic monsoon rains, it's probably pretty dried up at this time of year.

But, in the spirit of making lemonade out of lemons, Janelle may consider packaging up the mud and selling it as a homemade spa facial.  Bubonic Plague Beauty Treatment.

A convert to the veggie dog or to the rolls?  I buy the King's Hawaiian hot dog buns from time to time to eat with Hebrew National hot dogs. 

That was my theory about the pan or that she had already made several slices of toast in it and those were toast crumbs.  I really didn't look that closely.

To the rolls, the veggie dogs were already amazing. This was a small biergarten chain called Doghaus and I'd never had rolls this way before. Super good!

It makes sense that AUB doesn't follow the rules of the church...kinda like the whole polygamy thing, huh?

Janelle will be awarded big Brownie Points for these posts from her Commander in Chief.  She has made it clear that it is her choice to live this way and Savanah is along for the ride whether she likes it or not.

As a reward for her self-sacrifice, Kody may even drop by for another al fresco take out meal as it's too congested to cook indoors and with 2 dogs in residence, the air is a little too ripe to enjoy a meal indoors.

Yeah, right, Janelle. Your husband didn't do anything. We all know that. And yes, of course we think you are a meek person. What about "No way I'm pulling Gabe out of his high school in his senior year, and transplant him to Flagstaff. I'm not gonna do it", remember? And I really hope it was Savanah's choice to accompany you for a "living off grid" and she does love it, although I still feel sorry for her.

I know marine batteries aren't cheap, but she also says 'more'solar panels and a generator. Must be trucking in, or hauling her own water, and I don't know what a delivery would cost--unless she's filling up at one of the other houses? Then either the rental or purchase of the big rv or 5th wheel itself..

Basically, I'm wondering if it wouldn't have been cheaper just to rent, or even purchase a house instead of going though all this?


I did LOL rather big at 'before anyone gets their panties in a twist'. It's interesting that she says she's fine, but no mention of Savanah.

She raved about Salad & Go when she stopped there upon her return from the airport a few months back.  She could still be consuming a day's worth of calories for just that one $5 salad and fountain drink, based on her earlier report.

Too bad the Browns' finite resources must be tied up in Prairie Dog Plague Flats, because they could have franchised a Salad & Go in Flagstaff.  Janelle could have lived in a pod or one of the UHauls in the parking lot.

I totally agree, last time I brought a salad it was a Cobb salad at a local restaurant, by the time i slathered on the blue cheese it probably was a 3000+ salad ( but it was yummy)

This whole off-the-grid trailer thing with Janelle is a puzzler, considering the other wives live in big houses. What is she trying to prove?

Every time I see a closeup of Janelle's face, I think how Miss Heath and Wellness let that lump on her lip go so long, its removal, even with advanced surgery, distorted her upper lip. It's not a big deal, but it didn't have to happen. 

She must like playing the suffering martyr. Frankly, I think she's stumbled a little off the grid herself.

It’s good she addressed it outright.  I believe her when she says it’s her decision and she’s considering it an adventure.  It doesn’t  seem like she’s slumming it to me.  She’s getting water from somewhere.  Maybe she’s using a compost toilet.  😝I’ve seen them on the HGTV Tiny Houses.  Or maybe, they got a port a potty that she hasn’t photographed yet.

Dear Janelle: 

Yes, Janelle, we do think you are meek for good reason. You’ve shown to be. You’re scared to go to the gym (you’ve said so, sitting in the parking lot), you have been nervous to try this and that, you try something the rest of us have known about for decades and think it’s some new thing. You’ve been a “health coach” for years now and have shown no progress or strong motivation unless you have a coach of your own. And? You pulled Gabe out of school when you adamantly said you wouldn’t!

Lets dissect this for just a minute.

 Yes, Janelle, your husband doesn't do anything but boink Robyn and come over maybe once a month for al fresco dining on the promised land ( which by the way how is the building going, oh right your all broke)

Yes, you are a meek and mild person, we all cheered you on when you stomped your foot about ripping Gabe from high school, but wait, you did because oh Kody got to you when he wore his curly but falling out locks in a pony tail.

Short sighted, that would be you, for letting a cancerous growth become the size of a Mickey D's chicken mcnugget on your lip.

Last time I checked, you too are behind your keyboard showing us gross food, shilling products that are probably not even approved by the FDA . 

Keep shilling how wonderful you are being the adventurous person and living off the grid, when most of us here know that there is no cash money in the kitty to get you a rennal.

Man, I would love to copy and post this under her battery picture but she'd block me and I'd miss out on the snark.  But I'd be so curious to see how many people call me Karen, how many other names I'd get called, and how her sycophants would point by point attempt to shoot down every single truth in that paragraph.

Maybe Janelle should watch a few episodes of her own tv show to freshen up her memory, so that she remembers how unhappy the older kids, especially Maddie, Hunter, and Paedon were after the move to Las Vegas. And that she said on TV that she won't let Gabe through the same thing. Hell, I remember how miserable they were. Some strong willed person Janelle is... 

Btw this applies to Meri also. She, too, seems to forget a lot of what she said in a previous eoisode.
