The corn muffins look so pretty. Nom, nom, nom. What an amazing chef you are Geeny. Perhaps someday you'll open your own restaurant. Glad your Thanksgiving turned out so well. I stayed LC and ate only turkey and asparagus (assuming the asparagus are fairly LC; I didn't actually check the number of carbs) but I was greedy about the turkey and over-indulged somewhat on that. Ah, well...we're all weak-willed sometimes.

Gail...I buy swiss miss diet hot chocolate. I can't remember if it is 2 carbs or 3...but very little! I love it. Topped w/ a little redi whip and I don't miss marshmallows at all

B~pumpkin bake w/ redi whip
L~Chili "soup" w/ 3 mini corn bread, topped w/a little bit of sour cream, guacamole and shredded sharp cheddar cheese x 2 (I had an early lunch, and then was hungry so had a little more)
D~Indian chicken over spinach

Ingredients
1 onion (1/2 lb.), peeled and chopped
2 tablespoons chopped fresh ginger
1 fresh chili (about 1 oz.), rinsed, stemmed, seeded, and chopped
1 tablespoon salad oil
2 teaspoons garam masala
1 can (6 oz.) tomato paste
2 cups chicken broth
1/2 cup whipping cream
1 1/2 pounds chicken, cut into 3/4-inch chunks
1/2 teaspoon coarse-ground black pepper
Salt
1/4 cup (1/8 lb.) butter or margarine

Preparation
1. In a 5- to 6-quart pan, combine onion, ginger, chili, and oil. Stir often over high heat until onion is lightly browned, 3 to 5 minutes. Stir in garam masala. Scrape mixture into a blender; add tomato paste and chicken broth. Whirl until very smooth. Pour mixture back into pan, add cream, and bring to a gentle boil over high heat (mixture is inclined to spatter). Reduce heat and simmer, stirring often, until reduced to 3 cups, about 5 minutes. Pour sauce into a bowl. Rinse and dry pan.

2. Mix chicken with pepper and sprinkle lightly with salt. Set pan over high heat; add 1 tablespoon butter and the chicken. Stir until chicken is no longer pink on the surface, 2 to 3 minutes. Add the sauce and simmer over medium heat, stirring often, until chicken is no longer pink in the center (cut to test), 3 to 4 minutes. Cut remaining 3 tablespoons butter into chunks and stir into sauce until melted.

If you have access to the spice garam masala, this dish is worth it. I love Indian food and so do my children. I still buy the naan for them to eat it with, we skip the rice completely and eat it like a stew. One of my boys' fave dishes. I got this recipe off of this site years ago and it has become a staple in our house.

Lola, I eat asparagus all the time. I am pretty sure its lc. I tend to think "green veggies" are the lowest carb, as long as they aren't peas There are worse things than over indulging on turkey! Like...sweet potatoes, cream pies, mashed potatoes, pasta...you name it...atleast it won't knock you out of ketosis! Some days I eat a ton...some days not so much. I am still beginning my journey here, so I really don't even count calories. Only pay attention to my carbs, and even then, I am not strict on the under 20 thing. I don't eat bad carbs what so ever. My meals are predominantly meat, fat and then sometimes a veggie. I use sugar free on all of my products. I always have an lc friendly sweet in the house because I have a huge sweet tooth! To be honest, I don't even count my carbs, I just KNOW because I don't add extras throughout the day. Oh, and that very familiar metallic taste in my mouth, the inches shrinking off and the scale lowering weekly

I really do wish I could open my own restaurant. That would be a dream come true. I would definitely make it low carb A dieters paradise, or even a man's world lol.

I believe I discovered Cleochatra's website There are so many recipes on there!!! I think I am going to attempt to make these tomorrow.

Cheetos
3 egg whites
1/8 tsp cream of tartar
3 egg yolks
3 ounces cream cheese, softened
Flavored popcorn seasoning

To Prepare:
1. Preheat oven to 300 degree Fahrenheit.
2 In a mixing bowl, beat egg whites and cream of tartar on high speed until thick, stiff peaks form, about 3-5 minutes.
3. In another mixing bowl, combine egg yolks and cream cheese.
4. Carefully fold yolk mixture into whites.
5. With a spatula, scoop mixture into a sandwich or quart-sized food /sandwich bag with a tiny bit of the edge cut off to make a 1/2″ opening.
6. Pipe batter into 2″ doodles on parchment paper.
7. Bake for 15-20 minutes or until doodles achieve a light golden brown.
8. Cool slightly.
9. Lightly toss with popcorn seasoning in a bowl.
10. Place in dehydrator for 2 hours on high heat or allow to stay out overnight to achieve more crunch.
11. Store in a semi-sealed plastic or paper sack at room temperature for up to a day.
Makes 3-4 cups cheese doodles.
*Nutritional Information: this does not contain the amount of scant carbs totaled in for popcorn seasoning. If te label reads “0,” I’d add .2-.3 carbs per serving of seasoning used to be on the same side. 0 carb on many labels simply means “less than .5″.
For 1/2 recipe: Calories: 255.5, Carbohydrates: 1.7 g, Fiber: 0 g, Net Carbohydrates: 1.7 g, Protein: 12.65 g, Fat: 22 g
Per entire recipe: Calories: 511, Carbohydrates: 3.4 g, Fiber: 0 g, Net Carbohydrates: 3.4 g, Protein: 25.3 g, Fat: 44.5

kinda late last night, I did have some more leftover turkey with a little chive cream cheese smeared on top. Don't ask me what made that concoction come up, but now that all of the lc gravy is gone I had to think of something to put on top Not too hungry this morning, so just ate a piece of colby jack cheese. Should be okay until lunch. And, if not, I will eat...One of the great things about being lc is you can do that. EAT.

I think I am going to make them this evening after I get home from work. I don't have popcorn seasoning so I will grab it on my way home. And, I don't have a dehydrator so I will let them sit in the oven over night to crisp them up Wish me luck! I hope they taste amazing!!!

They were really good Bren! I made them into mini muffins, so I could eat like 3 or 4 at a time and feel like I was indulging I kept the leftover muffins. I am going to spread them with butter and eat them as little snacks. They don't really taste like corn, but they definitely do the trick!!

Good luck, dear. I hope the stress will lessen for you soon. I think Nov and Dec are difficult months anyway...at least I notice my mood is always somewhat low [seasonal affective disorder due to lack of sunlight] and also I feel more tense than usual which I attribute to holiday hype and stress even though we try to be low key about it all. Also a number number of deaths in my family have occurred during these winter months which of course adds to the feelings of sadness and melancholy. I'm sure I'm not alone in this; only yesterday I spoke with a friend who is experiencing the same thing. And on top of everything you are dealing with the financial strain you mentioned yesterday in Susan's journal so that makes everything even more problematic. I will send positive thoughts your way and do hope you'll be able to land another job...or, ideally, one job which would pay more.

just took the last of my leftover turkey and made some crazy concoction that tastes amazing Sauteed up some finely chopped cauliflower, onion and celery. Sauteed it in butter w/ poultry seasoning. chopped up the rest of the turkey leftovers and added it in. Added turkey broth to the pan. Once it started bubbling, I did just a few pinches of xantham gum to make it sort of gravy-ish. OMG. This tastes so freaking good. Sort of like turkey and rice.

I went this morning and put in two applications, but just got word that the local Target is looking for seasonal help. I wonder if they would give me only morning hours? That would be awesome!

Also, I have "cheetos" drying out in my oven right this minute. I keep wanting to taste one, but know that they have to dry more before they will have the crunch effect I am looking for.

I am on a small dosage of antidepressant, but I really don't think it's working for me right now. I was supposed to close the restaurant tonight, and after 3 hours, and 4 tables, they sent me home...$27 richer. Right now my life is so suffocating I don't know what to do.

Oh, sweetie, hang in there. This too shall pass...nothing ever stays the same for very long. Know you are not alone; many of us are fighting to maintain our equilibrium right now. I know you will get though this difficult period and move on to a more secure and happy situation. You are so very intelligent, focused, determined and hard-working that you are bound to be successful. You are a good and loving mother and you've made a happy life for your family. You have so much to be proud of. When you look back on your life you can realize that, above all, you are a survivor and you are a strong woman. You will survive this temporary blip and go on to continued achievements. I, for one, am rooting for you.

Low Carb Crepes
3 eggs, separated
3 ounces cream cheese
1 tsp baking powder
1/8 tsp cream of tartar
1 packet Splenda
2 Tbsp Davincis Vanilla Syrup (Sugar Free)
2 Tbsp oil
1 cup whipping cream
3 packets Splenda
Frozen berries
Preheat oil in skillet over medium-low heat.
In a bowl, whip egg whites with cream of tartar until peaks are stiff (about 5 minutes).
In separate bowl, blend cream cheese, yolks, baking powder and davincis sugar free syrup. Adding half of the yolk batter at a time to the whites and using a tall spoon (I use an iced tea spoon), make a lazy sine wave through the batter once. Turn the bowl 90 degrees and repeat. Add second half of the yolk mix and repeat sine wave two more times.
Using scant ˝ cup scoop, drop batter onto heated pan. Let cook until bottom is firm (the batter’s not yours) about 3-5 minutes. Flip and press lightly. Let cook for another 1-2 minutes, until crepe is set. Move to a plate to cool.
When ready to serve:
Arrange crepes on a plate (best looking side down).
In a bowl, whip heavy cream with two packets Splenda until still peaks form. Spoon cream into the center of each crepe. Roll and place seam-side down. Tuck fresh fruit in, on and around the crepes. Sprinkle one packet of Splenda along the top (optional).
Refrigerate leftovers.
Makes 6 crepes.
Nutritional information: Calories: 144, Carbohydrates: 4, Fiber: 0, Net Carbohydrates: 4, Protein: 5 grams, Fat: 12 grams

Making these right now. This will be breakfast for the next few days My first time incorporating a little bit of fruit.

Cut yourself some slack, Lisa. You are in a tough position right now so of course you are going to eat a tiny bit more -- everyone else would too. Have you looked at employment opportunities on Craig's List? Often you see good part time gigs/seasonal opportunities there. What about other restaurants in your area? You seem like a very popular, well-liked waitress so I imagine that you might be able to find something else local?

Give yourself more credit for getting out of a bad marriage that soured your family life, bravely rescuing your boys and giving them a better future. You are a hero in my book.

Gail...you are going to make me cry lol. You really are a good friend. I did apply to a Steakhouse in the area, and they want me to come there. They called last night. I told them that I didn't want to leave Macaroni Grill during the holiday and stick them, but that I would love to start working lunches for them, and maybe after the holidays go to full time. It will be a demotion from where I am at now, because I am also the training coordinator, but it is a very busy restaurant and in a business location. The demotion will be in hourly rate and position, but my pay will be higher lol due to higher volume. It is weird how that works, but I will take it!

So, I did make the crepes this morning. First off, they taste very good. Secondly, the recipe was very difficult to pull off For one, it doesn't clarify if you spread it around when you first put it into the skillet. Then, it doesn't make 6 1/2 c servings...more like 5. AND...it says 2 tbsp of oil (I used coconut)...I took for granted that it was to fry the crepes in. I should have done 1 tbsp for half and another for the other half. Only two of the crepes out of the 5 came out. And, although you are only supposed to eat one, I ate both lol. I might try the recipe again with some tweeking. I did used 1/4 c sliced strawberries, about 4 slices per crepe, and it was such a nice addition. I have a ton of whipped cream left over, and am so excited. It is one of my fave things...hot chocolate, jello, pumpkin bake, etc.

I worked this morning, and will be heading back in for the evening. Lunch shift was pretty good today. Pleasantly busy. I made triple what I made last night lol. Hopefully tonight is just as good

Lisa, that is GREAT news about the steakhouse. I am not surprised that other restaurants want to hire you. That says alot about how good you are at your job -- the ultimate professional compliment! Your crepes look divine -- they are making me hungry. I love whipped cream too. Tony makes it homemade and when I get a tiny sweet craving, I just have one tablespoon of it and it satisfies me right away.

And it is great news that it is busier at the Macaroni Grille. It should continue to get busier because folks love to go out for lunch and dinner while they are holiday shopping.

Hang in their girl! You have good karma on your side!

So it just dawned on me that I really don't eat many veggies since I started lc. I should atleast be eating one small salad a day. Or something. Usually my veggies are incorporated as in chopped up with my meat. Do you think I eat enough veggies? Should I add more? I feel great under 20 carbs. Sometimes I have issues in bathroom department, but never even thought to associate it with veggies. As I am typing this, I am having a quick lunch of 2 oz. pastrami w/ melted swiss on top and a handful of butter lettuce, four grape tomatoes and kens dressing. I picked up the lettuce on my way home from work. It sounded good.

Lisa, I find that if I eat 1-2 cups of dark leafy salad greens with olive oil and fresh lemon juice (or a sugar free Italian dressing) a few times per week, I am totally regular and lose faster. The greens really help with the regularity issue. You don't have to do this every day but a 4-5 times a week really makes a difference.

I eat leafy romaine at least once a day and take extra magnesium when irregular. Plain lettuce does absolutely nothing for me.
