Re the cauliflower potato salad...

I was searching here to see how anyone made this and looky what I found LOL!  Anyway, I thought I would throw this out there.  I had cooked some frozen cauliflower in order to make caulimash.  Had about a cup of leftover caulimash and a cup of leftover cooked cauliflower in the fridge.  What to do with it?  Hmmmm.   They were both cold so I cut up the cooked into chunks and put it in the caulimash.  I added about 2-3 tsp mustard, 2 tbl SF relish, 2 drops sweetener, sprinkle of onion powder, salt, pepper.  Mixed well and and surprise!  A variation of cauliflower potato salad.  Next time I'll try Umpa's recipe!

Golly Gee Tony!!! I almost missed your pics....WOWOWOWOW.  Congratulations to You.  I am impressed.  You look so much happier.

This does sound good.  I have trouble finding the black soy beans locally but just order a case from Amazon (Prime shipping is free) and they are delivered right to my door LOL!

Thanks Tony and Umpa!   Been gone so much with new 5th wheel.  Bought the thing in August.  Took first trip in October to Myrtle Beach 2nd trip to Bay St. Louis, MS casino, 2 more trips in December (went to Florida hoping to be warm LOL) and another trip to Florida in February and just got home 2 weeks ago.  Then had dad's 82nd birthday and family from out of state.  Only got to see TooSweet a couple times and now she's traveling  :-[

I have stuck to FTS as best I could, glad I could pre-cook foods before we traveled and still gained some but now that we are home hope to drop the 5 lbs I gained this last trip.  Maybe by my anniversary (FTS in July that is) I can finally reach my goal.  Just got to tighten up and eat as low carb as possible.  Also looking forward to opening the swimming pool.  Have stopped buying those chocolate Russell Stover SF candies...those have been my downfall.  Haven't had any for a week now and am craving chocolate.  Using WF chocolate syrup instead LOL!

Gonna go back to basics; boiled eggs, meat and cheese wraps, cheese crisps and lots more water.  Cut back on combo meals (one dish meals for convenience that probably have more carb creep than I realize). 

Have missed all of you guys, but as you can see, we've been gone and traveling and the wifi's are pretty poor lately.  Larry has promised to buy me a "booster" and antenna for the camper so I can use the internet without having to pay for our mifi which costs us $90/month.  I save it for paying bills and checking email.

Anyway.  That's my story LOL.  Looking forward to getting caught up on new recipes and information!

  2 1/2 tablespoons  vanilla whey protein powder
      (I use 0 carb MIO Vegetable Protein Powder)
  1/2 teaspoon  baking powder
  1  Pinch  salt
  1  egg
  1  teaspoon  oil
  2  teaspoons  (I changed to) 2 tsp of SF Maple Syrup
  1 tsp water just before cooking

  Oil or cooking spray -- for the pan

Whisk all of the ingredients, except for the water and cooking spray, in a small bowl until smooth. Add up to 1 tablespoon of water if you'd like a thinner batter. Meanwhile, lightly grease a small nonstick skillet with oil or cooking spray and heat on medium. Pour in the batter and tilt the pan to spread the batter evenly over the bottom of the skillet. When bubbles appear all over the pancake and the batter on top looks like it's starting to set up carefully work a spatula around the edges and then under the pancake to flip it over. Cook until the second side is lightly browned. Don't let it get too dark or it will taste a little bitter. Serve with butter and low carb syrup, if desired (not included in the counts).

Makes 1 large pancake

I don't use a skillet.  I preheat my waffle maker and just before pouring the batter on the waffle maker I spray both sides with a light dusting of the cooking spray.  The batter has to be thin enough to pour but not run over the sides, pouring directly in the middle then close the top.  As long as your baking powder is not expired (LOL) the pancake is now the lightest fluffiest waffle! 

I had this for dinner tonight along with my crispy bacon and a couple fried eggs.  A really great low carb breakfast and so very filling.

We were lucky enough for TooSweet to make this and share it with us.  Hubs thinks it's great, as do I.  That's why I'm here, to steal the recipe LOL.  When we had a small container left over I put some on my chili cheese (Hebrew National) hot dogs.  I used to not like coleslaw on hot dogs BUT this was to die for.  The last bite that was left went on my leftover hamburger patty the next night.  Very versatile flavor here!!  Thanks TooSweet.

Dinner Recipes / I called it Ham Chicken Casserole
« on: September 22, 2012, 08:13:56 PM »
Hi all..I haven't forgot you, just been busy.  We traded our travel trailer for a fifth wheel the end of August and feels like we've been moving LOL.  Just getting it ready for another road trip.  Welcome to all the new folks, I understand from TooSweet there are a few!   I made the following for dinner tonight and hubby asked what do you call this?  So anyway I have dubbed it Ham Chicken Casserole for the lack of a better name.  Just wanted to share because it was pretty tasty and very filling.  I added carbs for packaged meats although package indicated less.

I used two individual 5" ramekin dishes and layered the following in each:

1/4 cup cooked cauliflower cut into small pieces (1)
Layer of shredded cheddar cheese (0)
1 ounce of Oscar Mayer Carving Board Ham, cut into dime size pieces
   {2 ounces <1} (.5)
1 ounce of cooked chicken cut into bite pieces (0)
3 slices of Oscar Mayer Deli Fresh Black Forest Ham rolled and cut over chicken
   {6 slices 0} (.5)
1/4 cup raw broccoli chopped fine (1)
1/8 tsp celery flakes
1/4 cup Bertolli Alfredo Sauce (2)

Microwave above for 5 minutes on half power
Remove from microwave

Top with final ingredients
Layer of shredded Parmesan cheese (0)
1-2 Tbl of crushed BBQ pork rinds (0)

Microwave on high for 2 minutes
Total carbs 5 for each dish

P.S.  Yes I do still weigh and measure all my ingredients!  No guessing to avoid carb creep!

Product Reviews / Some like it HOT
« on: August 13, 2012, 08:50:57 PM »
Found these new 0 carb hot sauces while eating a Mexcian Restaurant in Clarksville, TN.  I feel in love with the Cholula suggested in one of Doug's video have a new found taste for "hot".  The link is just so you can see the product picture (I don't see a nutrition label but if your local Walmart carries these then you can get there).  I have used the Valentina hot sauce and both the green and red Yucateco Habanero sauces.  The Yucateco Habanero's are both HOT HOT HOT, the Valentina is a little milder hot but all extremely good.  I bought the Valentina and green Habanero at our local Walmart.  Our local Mexican restaurant has it available also!

Product Reviews / Sugar Free Relish - Kroger Brand
« on: August 13, 2012, 08:29:06 PM »
During our travels we stopped at a Kroger grocery in my quest to find Mt. Olive SF relish.  We happened onto Kroger brand SF relish.  I was shocked and confused that they claim that it is 0 carb.  I have gone to their website so I could link the label but alas I can't find it, nor can I tear the label off the jar so I could scan and paste here.  So here are the ingredients:
Cucumbers, water, cauliflower, vinegar, salt, dehydrated red peppers, spice, sucralose (Spenda), xanthum gum, calcium chloride, alum, sodium benzoate and potassium sorbate.  Serving size is 1 Tablespoon; Calories 0, Fat 0, Sodium 90mg, Total Carb 0g, Protein 0g.

I personally would think this would be at least 1 carb per Tbl just like Mt. Olive.  Any comments?
