Happy Holidays

I wish you a Merry Christmas!

Winter has arrived and along with it, the desire for warmth.

Gingerbread is a flavor of the season, and being low carb is no excuse.

I made this recipe, using a biscuit cutter because there are no actual children here. SpecialK does that care about the shape of the cookies.

This is the recipe I used.  Modern day gingerbread faces?  For the first time since eating low carb, I made cookies that were crisp.  SpecialK especially liked the thinner ones, maybe next time he will help roll them?

Whatever you do to celebrate, I hope it’s a happy time.  May 2019 bring us all the best of ourselves.

Lettuce-less salad

I was playing in the kitchen again!  Cheryl gave me some green onions, and we discussed my desire for a bean salad.

1 Cucumber seeded, 2 tomatoes seeded, 2 green onions, sliced.  When I finished chopping, I realized my cannellini beans were oversized, so I cut them in half.  2 T each EVOO and white wine vinegar, 1/2 T apple cider vinegar.  Salt and pepper.

Sounds so easy, but it does take time to chop fresh veggies.  I am thinking to cook some brown rice to make a complete meal.
