Dinner Recipes / Re: Low Carb Fried Chicken! Tonights Dinner, Yummy
« on: June 30, 2014, 01:46:11 PM »
I LOVE chicken fried in ground pork skins!!!   So crunchy and delicious.  I've just used salt & pepper in the past, but I bet the seasonings in YOUR recipe make this even better!  Definitely trying it your way!  Thanks for sharing this Doug!   :)

Hey, not sure if you have a Sam's Warehouse in your area, but they sell these HUGE containers of chocolate almonds for around $10.  They aren't coated in chocolate, they just have a chocolate dusting on them.....delicious!

Speaking of baking.....Sherripie, had you got that wonderful hubby of yours making you cheesecakes again yet?  :)  After I get a couple good weeks behind me, I am definitely going to make one for myself!  Chocolate is still my favorite.

Hi Jen!  There's several of us who have "come home" over the past couple weeks!  I don't know why I was so embarrassed to say I had fallen off the wagon, because everyone here is always so supportive!  Sherripie is a rock star!  She has been such an encouragement to me.  It was so nice to come back and find the same folks still here, staying the course, and helping everyone else.   We can do this!.....(again.)   :)

Yeah, I only help out my friend on Saturdays, and there's really not a lot of baking going on on the weekend.  She does catering too, and right now is wedding season.   She also makes all kinds of jams & jellies and right now the farmer's markets are in full swing.  On Saturdays I am usually by myself. I mainly just wait on customers and clean the shop.  She has a lot of long time weight watcher customers so she sells a lot of "low sugar" items.  On the cases, she has all the nutrition numbers listed for each thing.  Even so.....the lowest carb item is a chocolate chunk cookie...and it still has 8 carbs.   I told her last week that I am BACK on the wagon.  Yesterday morning when I showed up for work, she had already left for the farmers market.   However.....on the stove she had left me a fried egg and a piece of sausage wrapped in foil.  She is such a GREAT friend.   :)

Oh yes!  Thanks for reminding me of this one Doug!   I've made it several times in the past, and it is SO good!  .....I gotta go grocery shopping.  ha ha

So glad to hear about Five Guys!  We have one in our town, and I have never even been there!  This will definitely be on my to do list!  :)

Hey Rosie!!   Oh this is going to be fun!!  Now we just need Jo and Owensmath and it would be like a family reunion!   I am so happy to be back.   Today is my 5th day of doing FTS faithfully, and so far the detox hasn't been too bad.  I am already sleeping SO much better.   I know after 2 weeks I will be on my way again!  I think Saturdays will be my hardest days......working part time at a bakery has probably not been the best idea for this old gal.   ;D   So thankful for this forum and all of YOU!

Thanks Umpa & Tony!  I sure didn't mean to hijack Sherri's post.  It was just so inspiring to me to see her courage and also thankful to know that I wasn't alone climbing back on the FTS wagon with you all.   Love you guys!

It's June 1st and I am SO glad I signed on today!  Sherri, I am in the same boat with you!  Just this week I asked my husband to start holding me accountable to do FTS seriously like I did at the beginning.  I went to the doctor this week and was shocked that I had put on more weight than I thought!  I had been off my thyroid medication for a while, and I know that didn't help either.  I am now back on my synthroid and ready to start taking better care of myself.  I used to get on the scales EVERY morning, and I hardly step on them any more.   Today is a new day!!  Thank you so much Sherri !   You have inspired me again.  :)

Hi Umpa & Tony!   Missed you folks!
As for the horses, we just have Rocky now... the Tennessee Walker.  I sold my paint horse after his bucking episode.  I'm just too old for that.  ha ha   Our daughter & new son in law have rented a place to live that has 10 acres in pasture.  They will probably be moving Rocky to be with them soon.  I may just be back to my cat then.  :D

Though I haven't been on here in a while, I have still been enjoying all my FTS recipes.  Mashed cauliflower is my favorite comfort food this time of year.  ....and it's going to be COLD here in GA starting tomorrow!  I probably don't even want to know what the temperature is down there in the Florida Keys.  ha ha

Hi Morgan!  I am with YOU!   I'm excited about the new year too!  I have played around for a whole year and should have been focusing on losing the rest of my weight.  I could have been DONE by now!  grrrrrr.  I am ready to get serious like I was when I first started FTS.   I received an email from FTS because I haven't been on in SO long!  Thanks so much!   Hopefully life is settling down and I'll have more time to check in here with my FTS family......which is exactly where I NEED to be!    :D     Happy New Year everybody!!!

...and don't forget about one of the main food groups...CHEESECAKE!!   ;D
