Yep, those are oopsie rolls! .

I was making thai curry last night and my 6 year old asked me what would happen if I made a mistake with the curry, and liked it.

I said "then it would be a good mistake, I guess."

Then he said "It would be oopsie curry!"

ROFL, he must have remembered the whole story about why the oopsie rolls are called oopsie rolls!

Low Carb Reuben Melt. 7 net carbs. Not gluten free or induction friendly, but still pretty wonderful.

I used the gluten free pizza crust recipe from the Tropical Traditions website. I wouldn't say I loved it, but it was as good as any of the other pizza crusts that I've tried so far.

If you go to their site, they also have a video of it being made.

Quote:
Gluten-Free Pizza Crust

Makes 2-4 servings

* 2 cups whole milk organic mozzarella cheese, shredded
* 2 large organic eggs
* 2 tablespoons flax meal
* 2 tablespoons coconut flour
* ½ teaspoon baking powder

Preparation:

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Cut 2 pieces of parchment paper out for baking sheet.

Mix cheese, eggs, flax, coconut flour, and baking powder together until a sticky wet dough is formed. Spread with a spatula to ¼ inch thickness on a baking sheet lined with one piece of parchment paper.

Bake for 30 minutes in preheated oven. Halfway through the baking process, flip crust over by sliding it off the baking sheet with the parchment paper, placing the second piece on the sheet, and turning the crust over unto the new sheet and peeling the old paper off. Return to oven until done baking.

Remove from oven, slide off of parchment paper, and flip over again for cooling. Once crust is cooled, top with sauce, pre-cooked veggies or meats, and cheese. Set crust with toppings under the broiler on high for a minute or two until cheese is melted and bubbly. Slice and serve.

Yummmmm!!! All of the pics look so good.

I ate my dinner too fast tonight and forgot to take a pic. I just made spaghetti sauce, spooned it into oopsies and ate it like tacos. It was delish.

Brussels sprouts with bacon:

Venison chili:

Creamy southwestern chicken soup. I tweaked a recipe from Linda Sue's site.

Quote:
CHERI'S CREAMY SOUTHWESTERN TACO SOUP, with my changes:
2 raw chicken breasts, diced
2 3/4 ounces onion, chopped, 1/2 cup
2 cloves garlic, minced
1 tablespoon cumin
1 teaspoon chili powder (I used chipotle chili powder)
8 ounces cream cheese, softened
2 10-ounce cans Ro-tel tomatoes, undrained (tomatoes with green chilies)
2 cans chicken broth (oops, I only used one can!)
1/2 cup heavy cream (I left this out)
2 teaspoons salt, or to taste
1/4 cup chopped fresh basil
1/4 cup chopped fresh cilantro

In a large soup pot, cook the chicken with the onion and garlic. Add the spices and cook a couple minutes. Drop the cream cheese in bits into the meat. With the back of a big spoon, smash it into the meat until no bits of white remain. Stir in the Ro-tel, broth, and heavy cream (if using), and heat through.

Just before serving, stir in the fresh herbs.

Oh yeah, and at the last minute, I threw in about 1/2 cup of left over cooked cauliflower that needed to be used.

Tuna Steaks and zucchini:

Quote:
Tuna Rub:

Mix equal parts:
ground cumin
ground coriander
sea salt or kosher salt
freshly ground black pepper
chili powder (I used chipotle chili powder)

Coconut oil or ghee (for searing)

Rub into the tuna steaks and let sit for at least 1/2 hour.

If you really want the rub to be special, then you can use whole cumin and whole coriander, and dry toast them in a heavy bottomed pan before grinding them.

Either pan sear or grill for 1-5 minutes on each side, depending on how rare you want it.

I cooked it on a cast iron grill on our gas kitchen stove, and it worked great, but it had the same effect as having a fire in the kitchen, lol. It just about smoked us out. I'm sure we have permanent lung damage now. I had to open windows, and it isn't really window opening weather outside.

I did use whole steaks, but I didn't defrost them beforehand, so I cut them into smaller pieces so they would defrost faster. That is why they are in long thin pieces, lol.

GTBraveGirl, I don't have cream of tartar and hate to go to the store just for it. I am wondering if, since baking Powder has cream of tartar in it, could I sub that for the cream of tartar? The Floopsies sound so much easier than the Oopsies and I need a bread like substance. I have been using Flat Outs but they are rather bland and dry.
Sometimes I just want a piece of toast or sandwich!

Wow Laurie those look sooo yum!!

jlp2009 I do not know if it will work to sub the powder, what I do know is that the cream of tartar is used to help get the egg whites stiff. If you know that you can get them to the right consistency without cream of tartar, you can leave it out hope that helps!

I have read that you can use 1/2 to 1 teaspoon of vinegar instead of the cream of tartar. Lemon jiuce might also work. The acid stiffens the cell walls and gives the eggwhites more structure.

well I should have read the last 2 posts before I made them. They are in the oven now so I will have to let you know if they work, but I used 1/2 tsp. baking powder. I hope I end up with something edible but it sounds like they might end up like a giant omelet.

well, thankfully they aren't a giant omelet, but they sure aren't anything that I could use for a sandwich either. The taste is good, but to me, would work well with SF syrup or sausage. I did add 1 tbsp. extra almond flour and 1 tbsp. whey protein powder to the mix hoping that it would be more bread like. I used an 8 x 11 pan instead of 9 x 13 hoping that they would be thick enough to slice in half but they are too thin for that.
But at least they are edible!
Looks like I will go get some cream of tartar or try using vinegar and try another batch.

I don't have much luck with oopsies. I usually make th floopsies. If you are dying for bread, they have some good lc tortillas with 3 net carbs per tortilla.

When I want a bready pancaky type thing, I fry the queso cheese and put sf syrup on it. It is fantastic.

Tonight, I used the carbquick for the first time. I am from the south and LOVE fried salmon croquettes. The carbquick worked fine. I mixed up a can of pink salmon, added minced onion, egg, salt and pepper...........dunked it in the carbquick and fried away. It was good enough to make me feel like I cheated.

Considering I went to a birthday party today and didn't touch birthday cake or ice cream, I think my salmon was pretty good reward.

I have tried several different LC tortilla and they all are like eating cardboard (IMO) I have used the Flat Outs for roll up sandwichs and they are bland but tolerable since I don't eat them frequently. They tend to get soggy if I take them to work for lunch. I also tried to use them for pizza crust and they came out of the oven crispy on the bottom but very quickly became soggy.
I tried the queso cheese once and it was so salty that I couldn't eat it.
I want to try to whey protein pizza crust but haven't bought the plain PP yet. That will be another experiment!

Last night I made pizza casserole

LC tortillas for crust, lc pasta sauce on it, then cheese, pepperoni, mushrooms, bacon, ground beef and more cheese.

I keep eating before I get the pic taken. It was delicious. Tonight, pork chops and a veggie. I'll try to get a pic.

Indian Curry style Meatballs in Cashew Sauce, with cucumber raita and salad. I'm thinking it was a little high carb with the cashew butter and all, but it was tasty!

Bacon and Cheddar Crustless Quiche
