Sure, we will pick him up at 1:30 Oh and you can come too. There is plenty to choose from.

BTW, if you go to the Little Venice's web site, they do ship all over the US.

Gee Doris, it shouldn't take very long to throw it together.

Just slice the eggplant and either broil or fry it till brown ( you can bread it, but I don't bother)...layer in a pan with Mozzarella cheese and your favorite sauce, and bake for about 20 minutes.

You can cheat and buy the prepared egg plant "cutlets" in the frozen food section of most grocery stores.

Welcome taoko, I remember eating things like that around 8 yrs ago, loved the rustic melba.

I've been having trouble finding almond flour lately, the stores are usually out of it, and we don't go often enough to check often. Costco doesn't carry it, only has the flaxmeal, so far, anyway.

Monday's fine foods

B: zucchini, mushrooms, cauliflower, sunflower seeds, browned. Some broth in there. 1/2 cup egg whites. Flaxmeal, garlic. chipotle. Grated parm. black coffee sips

L: Sara Lee bread sandwich, hummus and tuna, have lots of tuna to use up.
2 boiled eggs. spinach salad, small.
black coffee

Snack: s/f suisse mocha hot drink and black coffee

D: Boca burger patty and fried egg on top. steamed brussel sprouts and sprinkles of sharp cheddar Molly McButter brand.
black coffee

Evening snack: Skinny Cow frozen bar and grapefruit segments, need to get more, also.

Monday
i went over my calorie goal, but i had plenty of slack from being under the four days before. didn't keep my carbs where i like them (under 100 net), darn melba toast. i don't bank carbs like i do calories, my brain functions better when i keep them lower and fat high. i found a recipe for LC turnip pancakes i'm going to try with the chicken liver spread.

Bfast: chicken liver spread on rustic melba, ruby red grapefruit, black tea
Lunch: beefy borscht with sour cream
Snack: cheese, almonds, dried apricot halves
Dinner: roasted chicken hind-quarter, okra with schmalz and cajun spice
Dessert: Greek yogurt and SF berry sauce
Snack: grilled pork loin

Doris I make my own almond flour by grinding almonds. I buy a 3 pound bag from Sam's club of natural almonds and grind them in my food processor and if neccessary run them through a coffee grinder to get them finer. That bag last me a long time.
