    It's a snack box day: almonds, hard boiled eggs, salami, string cheese, some hummus, and a low carb tortilla

    Wednesdays, in my opinion, is the worst day of the week...we typically don't get home until 8PM or so, which means I don't cook an actual dinner (I usually just make scrambled eggs or something fast) so no leftovers.

    All I've had is a small piece of extra sharp cheddar and a cup of coffee with splenda and a half ounce of salted butter. Holding out for dinner tonight which is leftover vindaloo curry that I made last night.

    With all my health stuff and lack of activity my metabolism is weird and some days I'm just not hungry at all.

    I work for a regional food bank. Today, one of our very generous donors decided to buy lunch for the office and warehouse staff, and they are sending pizza! The office and warehouse are all very excited...I will be good and eat my avocado tuna salad in a lettuce wrap!

    The fathead crust is really good...I haven't tried the Keto Connect biscuits yet. So far I have liked most of their recipes.

    Today I am having Mock Potato Soup and a couple of hard boiled eggs. I have been sick for the last couple of days (strep sucks) and didn't have much energy to do more than that. Thank goodness for meal prepping on Sunday.

    I spread some seasoned veggies on a sheet pan last night last night -onion, carrot, celery, mushrooms, peppers, broccoli -and draped strips of bacon over them...then roasted them. So.Freakin'.Good! So now I have leftovers...I am spreading hummus on a sheet of cloud bread, and then rolling the veggie/bacon mix in it for lunch today!

    It's leftovers for me again today! I made pork stew (pork browned in a bit of bacon fat, with carrots, onions, celery, crushed tomatoes, and green beans, topped with chicken stock and baked in my Dutch oven for two hours). I didn't use any thickener, because I haven't been able to get the hang of xanthum gum yet, so the "gravy" was more like broth lol, but it was still really tasty and tender!

    I made some buffalo chicken dip to snack on this week, and cut up a couple of mason jars worth of celery sticks to go with it...so that's in my lunchbox, too.

    I also made fresh mozzarella! My hubby tucked a bottle of rennet into my stocking and I haven't had a chance to give it a try, but the process was straight forward, and only took about 30 minutes! It was delicious, and fun to make! So there is a piece of that in my lunchbox, too...! Right now with milk so cheap, I figured even if I messed it up then at most I wasted a little less than a dollar...

    today I have Buffalo Chicken(dip recipe from Keto Connect). Used rotisserie chicken and mixed it with broccoli. It turned out pretty good! I'm going to have to try their sauce for chicken wings next time. Have a great day everyone!

    This is pretty typical of dinner at our house lol...my daughter is a vegetarian, my husband is not on keto, but obviously I am...

    The hubby wanted chicken n dumplins for dinner last night. I started off with a pot of seasoned (black pepper, thyme, poultry seasoning, garlic), sautéed (in garlic olive oil) veggies (celery, carrots, onions, peas, and mushrooms), then sectioned off about a fourth of them for my daughter's dinner.

    To her pot, I added veggie stock.
    To our pot, I added chicken stock. Then I diced up some chicken, and added them to our pot, too.

    I let both pots come to a simmer for about 30 minutes.

    Then I sectioned off about half of "our" pot into two pots -one for me and one for hubby.

    I made a roux in a separate skillet and added that to my daughter's and hubby's pot. Into mine, I added a little xanthum gum.

    Next, I made a small batch of regular biscuit dough, and a tiny batch of keto biscuit dough. I dropped that into their respective pots by rounded spoonfuls, brought the pots up to a boil and covered them for about 8 minutes.

    Dish up and serve!
    Once dinner was over, I put the leftovers into pint sized mason jars for lunches this week.


    I don't mind cooking this way, even though it makes a LOT of dishes, because the hubby and daughter are responsible for dishes, lol...
