[QUOTE=Pedidoc;983038]Dinner out - chicken, green beans, cream sauce and then I sinned - carrot cake.......:([/QUOTE]
I've got a recipe for primal muffins that includes carrots. Probably still not a good idea to eat regularly, but it must come in lower on the sinning meter... LOL! Last time I made it I put in no added sugars. The various fruits were enough.
[QUOTE=Pedidoc;983498]So I've been looking for what to do with squash. Seems like cubed and roasted or soup are my choices. Any creative ways to fix it?[/QUOTE]
I like baking it (or slow-cooking it) and combining it with cooked apple (or apple sauce for a quick version), butter and garlic. Easiest way is to sautee the garlic and apple very slowly in the butter tillthey're nice and soft, add the squash and mash. A little thyme in there is nice too. Cinnamon or pumpkin pie spice instead would probably be nice too. Very yummy stuff.
[QUOTE=Pedidoc;984864]I made the Brazilian cheese bread (Judg's recipe since it all goes in the blender and Siobhan warned me it was sticky). It is fantastic. I forgot how filling bread is! Two mini ones with my orange glazed pork chop and roasted Brussels and cauliflower and I'm full. DS loved them too.:) today I've had a phone meeting with student, 2 hour conference call, did laundry, paid bills, cooked dinner, and baked the bread. Got in several set of wall push ups too. Tomorrow is the clinic.[/QUOTE]
They are nice, aren't they? I do try to have them just as a special treat though. They're not exactly low-carb, but at least they are grain and gluten free.
I did something similar a while back - cut myself on a razor. Truly a pain in the arse for a few days. Here's hoping the good primal nutrition will help you heal![/QUOTE]
Sending positive thoughts to all in Sandy's path!
Ouch on the injury! Not nice. Must be a good one if you needed the pressure dressing for that long. More wishes for speedy healing sent from the north.
I might just have to make some of that Brazilian cheese bread. Yet it sounds dangerous. But in a good way. :)
Chipotle meatballs with shredded zucchini and some leftover sweet potato for dinner. And wine. Nothing on TV, graded some presentations, read for about 3 hours. Caught up on journals. Put off paper until tomorrow, then I've got to stop procrastinating. Have several home things to do on top of the paper. :(

Thanks Greensprout. My thumb is definitely missing a chunk! The bread freezes well - just saying.........
I always manage to take a chunk out of my thumb or a finger when using a grater. I should probably avoid mandolines... Hope your hand gets better quickly.
I just remembered with relief that I fed the last of the cheese bread to visitors. Yay! One less thing to tempt me as I try to go VLC for the next little while.
I'm thinking the cheese bread is on the Thanksgiving menu!:o
Did not sleep well last night. Awake off and on. DS off to work at 0400 and DH at 0500. Dozed off and on until I got up at 8. Coffee with coconut cream, thinking of eggs..... Leftovers for dinner.
Tummy is off today. Went back to bed for an hour. I've notified the clinic I won't be in this week, so I've rearranged my to do list. After reading Tomi's journal I need to start tracking my food again. I just hate doing all the measuring - reminds me of WW. :mad: I'm home this week, then travel for 10 days, home 3 weeks (except for 2 days away with DH for anniversary), then travel for 9 days and that gets me to the new year! I'm hoping for a better year in 2013.:D
