Product Reviews / Hot Dog Chili Sauce
« on: October 18, 2011, 09:53:13 AM »
Someone here on the forum suggested Hot Dog Chili Sauce (I think Owensmith?) and I finally remembered to pick some up.  This is good stuff.  I used it with my Nathans Hot Dog that I wrapped in a low carb tortilla with cheese and hot dog chili sauce.  :)

I know the recipe/suggestion is on the forum but just wanted to remind everyone how yummy these are!  Just peel, dice, toss with olive oil and your favorite seasonings and bake.  Great side dish.

Hershey Sugar Free Strawberry Syrup - 4 carbs- 4 sugar alcohols!  I used this in the Milk Shake recipe and also this morning in my One Minute Muffin.  It was great and seemed to make the Muffin very moist.

These are great for a quick lunch or dinner.  Cooks in microwave 60 seconds and very tasty, not dry.  There are 2 chicken breast in a package. I got them at WalMart located near the lunchmeat. 3 carbs for this flavor

Product Reviews / Dixie Diner Hot Cereal

I was so looking forward to the Dixie Diner Hot Cereal for a change up at breakfast. I ordered the Apple Cinnamon but was disappointed.  It smelled great but was gummy (could be texture thing for me).  :(

Are these okay?  I have eaten them and they have a great taste.  The ingredients concern me a little (rolled oats?)

Cooked my 1st Spaghetti Squash tonight. One squash makes a lot! 
Alfredo sauce- 1 cup light sour cream, 1/2 cup mozzarella, 1/4 cup Parmesan, salt, pepper, garlic (optional). Cook medium/low heat until smooth and creamy. 
I poured some over individual serving of squash and added sauteed chicken. Pretty good.

La Choy Chop Suey Vegatables?  Are these okay? 1/2 cup 2 net grams.  Thought I might add chicken for quick meal.

General Discussion / Sandwich - 1 minute bread
« on: July 05, 2011, 03:23:32 PM »
I love izzet's 1 minute muffin (bread) and have finally found the perfect microwave container for making sandwich! I was making it in a more square container, microwave, and then slicing in half.  Well I used this  (photo below) and divide mixture in each side of container.  Makes the perfect sandwich bread or toast.  just thick enough. You can toast and it doesn't fall apart! Love it  ;D
1 tsp butter, soft
1 egg
cup Almond Meal or flax if you like
tsp baking powder
tsp xylitol optional
1 tbsp heavy cream
A sprinkle of Parmesan optional
A couple pinches of salt

Mix ingredients together and pour into a square plastic container.  Microwave on high for 1 min 30 seconds.  Pop right out of the container, cool!

Breakfast this morning was poached eggs, bacon and biscuit.  The biscuit (2 net carbs) I made with Carbquik (Netrition 3 lb. box $11.99).  Pretty good biscuit.
