I'm officially ready for fall. All the pools are closed and summer weather without pools just doesn't go together very well!!

I went to the funeral this morning for my friends daughter. It was so sad but a very nice service. I pray for peace for that whole family.

It's always something.
At least he can "chat" with the repairmen instead of you!

Sandy, I continue to pray for that family, also.

Carolyn, your stories have blossomed into sub-stories of their own!

MK - you make me laugh!

Hi ladies.

Well, an old pipe split when they were repairing the valves. Plumber will be back. Gary will be happy until he gets the bill. Then rock guys are delivering blocks for our new back wall that needs repair badly. It is nice to have dh around so he can let peeps in.

Was 143 this morning. We have such wonderful tomatoes that I got some of Braums LC bread to make BLTs. Big carb splurge.

Hugs all around.

I didn't know Braum's had LC bread. How LC is it? And does it taste good; like real bread? My dad's heading to my sister's soon and I just might have to place an order!!

Good job on the weight Carolyn!!! Mine is jumping all over the place. After being back in my window at the end of last week, it jumped back up a couple. Sometimes I really do get tired of this daily, lifelong struggle, but I know that's the only way to whip it.

Morning, still hot in Texas.
Love the plumbing stories! Within the past month we had leaky pipe under kitchen sink and washer problems too. DH was able to fix these. Over many years of marriage I have learned not to nag about broken items, I just piled everything from under the sink onto counter, mentioned the leak and shut up. A couple of days later, after 2trips tp Home Depot, DH pronounced it fixed. Then, it started leaking out the other end, repeat same scenario, done. Mentioned washer not working, quit doing laundry, went on my way. DH fixed it too. But if I nag, oh no, he balks and complains, on and on it goes. Why does it take us so many years to learn how to manage great big "little boys?"

Heard of new flour, made from crickets

Funerals for young people are so sad

Visit tomorrow to Dr VH for follow up. Have decided that these 2 meds might be ok I guess, not thrilled with them but better than some.

Hi everyone -- I'm new -- I lost 50 pounds low carb (high fat) from 1-1-13 to end of May when I started yo-yoing up and down 10 pounds. Then I got back to 252 about 1.5 weeks ago -- then with major celebration of birthday am now back up to 263.5!!!!!! WHAT was I thinking of??? So now I'm back on, and was thinking meeting some low carb friends would be very helpful (since we speak the same language)....

So here I am, ready to lose more more more, may I join your September challenge and my goal is just to get back true to HF, LC, and lose what I can by the end of challenge?

Hi ladies..

Braums' LC bread is extremely nommie with 6 nets carb per piece..45 calories. It's a light wheat..I don't usually buy bread, but this is a good alternative.

I love plumbing stories involving husbands. It never ends pretty. My friend's dh has a rule that he never goes to a Lowes/Menards/Sutherlands more than twice per job. He has to switch if he is going for the third time so the workers don't think he doesn't know what he is doing.

Good news on our plumbing story..My very kind and smart plumber came back to fix the pipe and only charged us $44 for the part..Labor was free because he worked on it yesterday.

Elizabeth..We need another Californian..We have Sharon.. Yup, yup, yup..Go off plan and we gain. I was eating 150 carbs in the olden days and 1300 calories and weighed 195..Duh..Welcome to you..

Buffy: I hope you get your meds straightened out and hopefully they will make you feel tip top..

Didn't exercise today..Had to babysit at church, then the plumber, then the phone rang all morning..There is always tomorrow..

Need to make a carrot cake for church on Sunday for the college kids. Will make a HC one and freeze it..

I went to the gym this a.m. and did the weight machines. Then I headed to Walmart. I hit their clearance just right! I got about 7-8 pairs of shorts marked down to $3-5 for next year plus a couple pairs of capris and a pair of workout pants!!! I was there for over 2 hours!! But what bargains I found.

Welcome Elizabeth!! Jump on in, the water's fine and we don't bite. People, that is. We love new peeps to join us.

That's a funny story about the "2 time rule". I wonder if DH does that and just doesn't tell me, lol.

Dear People I thought I Knew Who Do Not Eat Wheat,


If you don't have a Braum's near or don't want to pay whatever price, Sara Lee Delightful Healthy Multi-Grain has 45 calories per slice and 7 net carbs per slice.

DH eats that bread and I did too before LC and going wheat-free.

Mostly wheat free.
*ahem*

D'Italiano light has 45 calories and 7 net carbs too which is what I use when I occasionally have to have bread.

The creamy chicken scampi is going to be delicious if all the tasting I've done making it is any indication!!!!! Winner winner chicken dinner!!!! Really!!!!

Creamy Chicken Scampi by Peace, Love & Low Carb

CREAMY CHICKEN SCAMPI
I used to eat at a certain chain Italian restaurant all the time and their chicken scampi was one of my favorite things in the world. I decided to try and create it in a low carb version. The result was pure deliciousness. Enjoy!

INGREDIENTS
1 1/2 lbs. Chicken Breast - Cut into tenders sized pieces
6 Large Cloves garlic - Minced
6 Tbs. Butter - Divided
1 Cup Chicken Stock
1 Cup Heavy Cream
1/4 Cup Parmesan Cheese - Grated
6 oz. Mixed Bell Peppers - Sliced
A Few Slices Red Onion
1 tsp. Italian Seasoning
1/2 tsp. Red Pepper Flakes
Salt and Pepper - To Taste
(2 Tbs. Peace and Love)

DIRECTIONS
Salt and pepper both sides of chicken breasts. In a large saute pan, over medium-high heat, pan-sear chicken in 4 Tbs. butter. Sear on both sides until a nice golden brown - 3-4 minutes each side. Remove chicken from pan and set aside. (Chicken will not be fully cooked at this stage.)

Using the same pan, reduce heat to medium and add remaining 2 Tbs. butter, and minced garlic. Brown the butter and garlic. About 1-2 minutes. Be careful not to burn the garlic as it will turn very bitter.

Keeping at medium heat, add sliced red onion and saute onions until transparent - 3-4 minutes.

De-glaze the pan with chicken stock. Using a rubber spatula, scrape off and mix in any stuck on pieces of chicken and garlic. Add Italian seasoning and red pepper flakes. Bring to a boil over medium heat, then reduce to low to simmer. Let simmer 2-3 minutes.

Add heavy cream and allow to simmer 5-10 minutes to allow sauce to begin thickening. Mix in Parmesan cheese and salt and pepper to taste.

Mix peppers into sauce and add chicken back to the pan. Finish cooking chicken in the sauce on low. Let simmer for 10 minutes.

Makes 4 Servings:
1 Serving:
Calories: 464
Carbs: 4 net g
Fat: 34 g
Protein: 38 g

My notes:
I used boneless, skinless chicken thighs, not breasts. I don't think it really needs the bell peppers but they were good. I'll probably sub mushrooms next time. I also didn't add the parmesan cheese to the sauce, I just topped it off at the table. This is a keeper for sure!!!! I served it over a little Dreamfields spaghetti but it would also be good over zucchini noodles or mashed cauliflower or just plain. Yummy!!!!!

Yummmmy. Sounds like a winner. Thanks, Sandy.

Yes I like Sara Lee, too. However I do not buy bread normally. Really I don't.

hope your VH doctor is nice to you.

Honestly, the regular bakeries who make LC bread make the best tasting bread..The expensive ones make their bread taste like sponges..

I'm like you Carolyn, I rarely buy it and when I do I end up throwing most of it away after it gets freezer burnt from storing it in the freezer. It is nice to have once in a while if you can tolerate it.

I'm going to do yoga today! I haven't done yoga in years so this should be interesting, lol. I'm really looking forward to it though.

Oww..Sandy have fun with your yoga... I like the easy version..Shawn does the "hot" yoga..

Wow, I can't believe how fast I can do laundry now. The water is coming in like Niagara Falls instead of a tiny trickle..Duh..

I am definitely going to the gym this morning..Definitely.

Everyone have a great day.

Oh...my chips came in..The green beans are good, too.

Good morning looks like everyone's busy. Love the recipe Sandy.

I'm in the mood for pot roast. I watched Pioneer Woman this morning and she made a great looking one in the oven. She used low heat and it fell apart. Made my mouth water. . A shopping we will go.

Welcome Elizabeth. This is a great place to hang out.

Yoga was a killer!!! It was not supposed to be hot yoga but somebody left the heat up in the studio so it was. Very hot yoga!!! But I did enjoy it, a lot! Then I went shopping for some new workout clothes. I figure if I spend money on a wardrobe I will have to go so I can wear it, lol. Right?? Sounds logical to me.

Question

Remember this?

Low Carb No-Bake Cheesecake

1 small box Sugar Free Jell-o (I am using Lemon)
16 oz cream cheese, softened to room temperature.
1/2 cup sour cream
1 tsp vanilla

Add Jell-o to 1 C boiling water, dissolve.
Add cream cheese and mix well, then add sour cream and vanilla.
Grease a glass pie pan and pour mixture into pan.
Chill in refrigerator until set
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

I have 2 thingies of cream cheese sitting out to soften.

I bought a box of Sugar Free Jell-o PUDDING (lemon).
My mom used to make a faux cheesecake with pudding, not regular Jell-o and I thought I'd try it but didn't think it through very far.

Would I use about a cup of Hood milk for the liquid with the pudding?
I'll beat up the cream cheese first to make sure it's pretty smooth.
Or half a cup of cream + half a cup of water for the liquid?



Sandy I love reading about your new exercise regimens!
And yes, even one attempt at an exercise calls for a new workout outfit!

Judy, I would just add the cup, too..However, make sure the jello pudding doesn't have lumps in it with only using a cup of liquid..Beat well, then add the cream cheese and beat well..This sounds really wonderful..The jello version was really wonderful.

Sandy, I am betting that the hot yogis forgot to turn down the heat..LOL..If you are doing yoga, you need to look the part for sure.

Hi ladies!!

I've been so busy exercising I haven't had time to check in.
Mon and Wed I do body building in the morning and yoga in the afternoon.
Thursday is a band class and more yoga.
Friday is just body building.

Add that to the dog walks, regular errands and mom stuff and I can't seem to fit everything into 1 day.


Elizabeth!!!

Sandy - I started yoga a couple of weeks ago - and of course you need new clothes!!
I don't like it too hot - I can't breathe!

Love the recipe!

Judy - I remember that recipe!!!

Sharon - how was the pot roast?

Buffy - I'm glad you finally figured out your DH! I just want to call a repairman for everything!

Carolyn - love the hardware store rule!!
