We had another nice low carb meal tonight -- grilled pork chops with sugar-free apricot chutney, sauteed zucchini, green salad. I am trying to watch a few minutes of the "Real Housewives" before Tony makes me change the channel to NFL football -- LOL!

Feels good to be back on low carb again -- I know I will feel back to normal by Wednesday when ketosis kicks in! That is the best feeling. Hope everyone has a great night. xo

Amber, you are going to look fabulous for your Vegas vacation. You will make great progress over the next three weeks too -- you have great determination. Maybe your boss will end up by giving you a few extra days off? It is always so slow during that week.

It is a chilly day here in Boston and the wind is howling like crazy. Another long day of work ahead but I can't complain. I need to think of something good to have for dinner tonight -- maybe the Barefoot Contessa's eggplant gratin paired with a protein. Coming back after a mini cheat is hard but doable.

Have a great day everyone!

I hope you have a wonderful day and that it isn't too cold! That gratin sounds delicious - you make me want to cook (and that's not easy to do!)

Julia, the gratin is super, super easy. I will post a link to the recipe but it is essentially this:
*Cut thin slices of egglant (large circles) and saute in olive oil until lightly brown
*Spray cooking spray on a large plan.
*Mix ricotta cheese with one egg, salt, pepper and a dash of fresh garlic or garlic powder
*Layer the eggplant slices in a single layer on the pan
*Spoon sugar-free marinara or tomato sauce on top
*Spoon ricotta mixture on top of that
*Top with shredded mozzerella and parmesan OR romano cheese
*Keep doing those layers until you are done
*Bake at 375 degrees for a half hour or until the top is bubbly

It tastes just like an eggplant lasagne but it is so low carb! We usually have this with grilled chicken or pork -- yum! I wanted to make it tonight by Tony felt like burgers so that's where we are today. That's fine: I like burgers and salad.

AMBER: I am so excited for your VEGAS trip! I was just there for business and you have to stop in two of these new hotels for a cocktail -- the Cosmopolitan and the Mandarin Oriental. Both are gorgeous and luxurious with awesome lounges (that don't have all the noise and the clang of the slot machines -- very peaceful and lovely) -- perfect if you and Tony want to have a nightcap after dinner before you go gambling or see a show!

Julia, here is the link to the Eggplant Gratin recipe from the Barefoot Contessa. My recipe recollection above is not quite accurate. You need to add some half and half and parmesan cheese to the ricotta mixture and the oven temperature is 400 degrees not 375. Old age ruins my memory - LOL. Anyway -- it is so good -- especially if you're craving a hearty, flavorful Italian comfort food dish without the carbs!

Thanks for that recipe Gail! I am not a huge eggplant fan, but when smothered in all that Italian goodness how can it be bad?? I wonder if it'll work with Zucchini.. That I like..

Thanks also for the tip on the new Vegas casinos. Haven't been there in about 10 yrs, but it is my favorite city on earth.. Yes, I am a gambler.. There is a possibility I may go this March. Trying to figure out my options for my oh-so necessary winter vacation.

Judy, this would work with zucchini -- I would just bake it for a shorter time as zucchini is a bit more delicate than eggplant. Maybe bake it for 20-25 minutes? We often saute zucchini in fresh garlic and olive oil and then sprinkle with sea salt and good romano cheese. Also did you know that some people make "zoodles" in place of pasta? They use a mandolin to slice ultra thin skinny strips of zucchini that look like pasta. They boil or saute them until soft and then serve with any good sauce -- alfredo, vodka, marinara or anything that you would normally toss pasta with and enjoy.

I hope you get to go to Vegas - that would be super fun! There are so many new hotels that are really lovely and sophisticated -- very NYC or LA and without the noise/craziness of the casinos/slot machines but they still have them on the property or nearby. And the restaurants there are fabulous. There is a good BLT Steak, Del Friscos and tons other high end steakhouses that make it very easy to stay on low carb too.

Lisa, I think they would like it -- with the marinara sauce, ricotta, mozzerella and parmesan cheeses, it tastes just like lasagne. You can add meat to it too -- sausage or you could make a meat sauce.

I got a new dress for our upcoming work Christmas party and it fit really well. I read about this type of dress -- it is by NUE by Shani, which offers built-in shapewear in every dress. So instead of buying Spanx or another kind of shapewear and a bra, the shapewear is already sown into the dress to lift the bust, suck in the stomach/torso area and shape the bottom. I tried it on this morning and it looked decent.

Gail I want to check out the Mandarin, we stayed at Cosmopolitan it was beautiful! I am excited for that, although I am going to be porky and even porkier when we are done there! LOL

The dress sounds beautiful what color?

Amber, you are NOT going to be porky! You are doing great staying on plan. Didn't you love the Cosmopolitan? Wait until you see the Mandarin Oriental -- really elegant and fabulous.

The dress is black with a deep v-neck, elbow-length sleeves and hits just at the knee -- I hear this type of style is the most slimming. It does show a bit of cleavage which I really can't help so I am a little nervous about that! If I end up not feeling comfortable with it, I have a "back up" dress that I can wear -- a black knit St. John dress.

One of the things I miss about being thin is how you don't worry about how clothes will look -- most things look, you know, fine. When you are heavier -- particularly if you carry your weight in specific places (in my case, that is tummy and upper/mid back) -- you really have to find things that hide your weaknesses and play up your strengths. Not an easy feat sometimes. Oh well, time to stop complaining!

Your dress sounds lovely Gail! If you feel beautiful in it, you will be beautiful in it! It's all in the confidence! And, there's nothing wrong with a little cleavage - it's all the rage now!

You inspired me to make some yummy veggie dishes on my fasting day tomorrow. I bought ingredients to make Cauliflower bread sticks, Portobello Mushroom pizzas, and Zucchini to try a mini version of your lasagne or to use them as "boats" and stuffing them with veggies and cheese and tomato sauce.. There is so much we can do if we are just a little ambitious. The recipes abound!

Have a great day!

Awww, Laura, thank you! The dish is really delicious and so easy to make. You are lucky to be in beautiful Texas where it is nice and warm.

Judy, I love your menu. Cauliflower bread sticks sound great and I love the idea of the zucchini boats. I saw some good recipes for zucchini boats on the website Peace, Love and Low Carb too. And you are RIGHT about confidence!

We had the eggplant gratin last night -- so good -- and I am still in deep purple ketosis, so that is even better! It is a chilly day today...better get bundled up. Hope everyone has a great day -- the week is almost over!

Brrrr, cold here too! But at least the fog and rain we've had for 2 days has lifted. Didn't wear a winter coat yesterday, but I think those days are over for the next 3 months. Are you in the path of the ice/snow storm?

We were at an Italian themed buffet last night and they had Eggplant lasagne. It wasn't too bad.. I bet your gratin was yummy. I am making the cauliflower thingy today.. don't want to have to pull out the food processor.. Maybe I'll see if my stick immersion blender will work..

Have a good day!

Judy, let us know how the cauliflower recipe turned out! I am dying to know! It turned out okay here today -- after the morning freeze, the weather got milder and stayed in the 40s with that white sky and dreariness of the coming winter. I should not complain as it did not rain or snow. But if you live in the North, you know what I mean - the white sky against the bare dark brown trees, mist in the air and a chilly wind but the temperatures are not too cold because if feels like rain is on the way. Chilly but not cold, a little depressing but not enough to induce suicide -- you just have to acknowledge that winter is here and there ain't nothin' you can do about it (if you can't escape to Florida).

We got Greek takeout tonight -- grilled chicken Greek salad and a gyro salad. Good and filling. I was so hungry so it hit the spot. Have a great night everyone! xo

Gail the dress will be perfect, cleavage is a good thing! My boss is so flat chested and uber conservative, LOL I am always telling her to show some skin, LOL Of course she is like 100 pounds soaking wet, another naturally skinny person I am surrounded by! Whenver I wear grey or something high necked she comments how she likes it, LOL

Ready for the weekend, we have Tony and Autumns B-day party his parents are coming down, and his brother, then a Christmas party at the neighbors, apparently last year they had a tent with heaters set up and bar service, fancy! I am hoping that is fun!

Oh Amber, I love you! I wish you lived closer so I could hang out with you -- LOL. It's funny: when I was thin, I did not mind my large chest. When I am overweight though, my larger bust makes me feel even huger. I mean, I am not freakishly large, just larger than average but I always envied thin petite girls who could effortlessly wear tank tops and spaghetti straps without a second thought. I should just appreciate what I have and not be so self conscious about it. At the end of the day, no one cares anyway.

Laura, greek food is so good -- and it helps you stay on plan. I need to vary my food so I don't get bored. I generally only eat one meal a day so I need that meal to be reallly flavorful. I am going to try some new low carb bread from the Great Low Carb Bread Company. The order is supposed to arrive either today or tomorrow. I ordered low carb hamburger rolls, bagels for Tony and pizza dough. Normally I shun low carb products like breads, bars and shakes but I heard such good things about this brand on this board. The hamburger rolls are only 16 carbs apiece and the pizza dough is super low in carbs -- but you can only have once slice of the finally made pizza because I think it has like 10 carbs per serving. I am going to try it and see if I stay in ketosis with it. I really like the idea of making our own pizza. Tony LOVES pizza and gets mopey without it -- LOL.

Amber, it sounds like you have a great weekend planned. I think the neighbors party sounds super fun -- you will have to let us know how it goes. And you are going to LOVE taking Tony to Morton's! It is a low carber's paradise!

This week just flew by, didn't it ladies? Christmas will be here before you know it too. I am really looking forward to the weekend. Work always seems so hectic in December because everyone is scrambling to get stuff done before the year ends, trying to cram four weeks worth of work into three. I am exhausted just thinking about it!

I hope everyone has a great day and a wonderful weekend ahead! xo xo xo

Cauliflower bread stick recipe

Good morning Gail and her friends! The recipe for the cauliflower bread sticks is below... BUT, I did not make them because I wasn't hungry! WHAT???? Could that really be true??? Yes indeedy, I got home from my errands and the pool at 3:30 - and I was scheduled to eat my second mini meal which I wasn't the least bit hungry for! Seriously, this has never happened to me in my life. I decided to have my second mini meal for dinner and skip the bread sticks until tomorrow.. So, I plan to have them later today as a side dish. People use this as a pizza crust base, too.. You'll just want to do it thinner. Here is the recipe that I have:

Cauliflower Breadsticks! Hardly any calories for the whole pan! 340 she said… I get about 443 calories for the entire recipe when I use the cheese I purchased

Idea: Add tomato sauce for a pizza

•1 large head of cauliflower - 143 cal
•2 cloves garlic, grated or minced
•2 large eggs, lightly beaten - 140 cal
•4 oz low fat mozzarella cheese - 160 cal
•1/2 teaspoon onion powder
•salt
•pepper

•Preheat oven to 450 degrees.
•Chop the cauliflower into chunks and place into microwave for about 5 minutes or until soft
•Place the cauliflower into a food processor and blend until it's a mashed potato texture
•In a medium bowl, stir together cauliflower, eggs,cheese, and seasonings
•Lightly spray a baking pan with spray oil and coat with the mixture (about 1/2 inch thick)
•Bake at 450 degrees for 20-25 minutes or until the top starts to brown
•Add additional cheese to the top and enjoy!

Hey Judy! Thanks for the recipe -- I am super excited to make it. It sounds like you have a great day planned today -- breakfast with your girlfriends and shopping. I hope you have FUN!

So I tried on the two dresses for my office Christmas party today: the new one (the NUE by Shani) one and the "back up dress," a little black dress I've had for years by St. John. I should point out that the St. John dress is a size 10 but it is a knit dress so it's a little more forgiving. When you wear it with proper shapewear, it looks good. (Amber, I am wearing that dress in my Facebook photo).

So when I asked Tony which dress I looked better in, of course he picked the St. John backup dress -- LOL -- not the new one. Oh well. He was right though -- I did look thinner in it. So I guess that's what I will wear. I know -- "first world problems" right?

I only wish I was a real size 10 but I ain't complaining if the dress looks good. I could not fit into it at this time last year so I really should celebrate a "non scale victory" here instead of being a doggie downer.

Hey Lovelies,
Busy day so far! I finished Christmas shopping and have done about 25% of the wrapping. It does not sound like much but it is a heck of a lot of work. I had to get some work done this morning, clean the house, exercise, shower and then dash off to get a pedicure. By the time I finished holiday shopping it was 1:45 PM and the only thing I had to ingest was coffee and water.

So I did not feel like cooking and our shipment of the rolls from Great Low Carb Bread Company just came in. So I stepped into this fabulous gourmet Italian deli and restaurant and ordered a large Italian sub (Tony's fave), grilled chicken sub and a steak & cheese sub with a side of sausage. We ordered the hot dog rolls from Great Low Carb Bread Company -- and they are teeny but only 15 carbs per roll! So I fixed a low carb Italian sub for Tony and a low carb grilled chicken sub for me - figuring we'd eat the inside of the steak and cheese and the sausage if we were still hungry. I toasted the low carb rolls first and spread a tiny bit of melted butter on the rolls before I stuffed them with the protein fillings.

It was delicious. We had this with a tossed green salad. We have not even eaten the sausage or steak yet - we are full. You guys know we typically eat one meal a day with IF and all but we are full.

I will let you know if I am still in ketosis tomorrow. I heard such great things about other posters about the Great Low Carb Bread Company so I ordered hamburger rolls, hot dog rolls, pizza dough, onion pockets and a low carb brownie. So far the rolls get an A -- just don't compare them to the most delicious rolls ever home baked by your Aunt Anna who cooks like Julia Child. They are good, decent rolls that taste very good with delicious filling -- not "5-star French bakery perfect bread cuisine" but they fulfill the craving nicely.

Hope you guys have a good day. Love you all very much! xo xo xo

Thanks Laura! I woke up in ketosis this morning with purple sticks so it looks like the rolls from Great Low Carb Bread Company are a winner! I was thrilled to see this.

We are going to try the pizza dough this afternoon and make low carb pizzas. With the dough, the pizza is about 8 carbs per slice (not including toppings) so you could have two slices if you used sugar-free marinara and stick to meat/cheese toppings. I will let you guys know how that goes!

It is COLD here today and we are supposed to get snow today or tomorrow. Boo! I guess it had to happen sometime though. I hope everyone has a great day today. xo xo xo

Sounds like your LC rolls are a winner! Your sandwiches and pizza sound great! I am going to make little pizzas using portobella mushroom caps for the "crust". I have all the ingredients and it sounds great! Going to cook up some steaks for DH.. I am not a beef eater unless it's smothered in sauce.

We are getting a couple of inches of the white stuff today, but at least it's warmer.. a balmy 25 for the high today.

Enjoy your Sunday Gail!

Yum Judy! Those portobello mushroom pizzas should fantastic and healthy too! I hear you about beef -- every now and then, I like a really good grilled steak but Tony is much more of a meat eater than I am.

I just made us a divine shrimp scampi as an appetizer -- no pasta, rice or bread of course! Just really good jumbo shrimp cooked in a scrumptious sauce (butter, olive oil, fresh garlic, white wine, parsley, red pepper flakes and shallots). We have the pizza in the oven now. I will let you guys know how it goes. xo xo xo

Yum yum yum. I am watching little snippets of the Philly/Detroit game, and if that is what is headed your way...I am definitely not envious. It looks crazy there~On the other hand, our beloved Brownies are playing your Patriots today
