#Lowcarb Boredom - Meal Ideas - 10/9-10

Tuesday I probably ate leftovers for lunch, as I usually do....can't remember for sure but that's the usual. For supper I made my BIG pan full of roasted cabbage and onions with ham. Just chopped, tossed with olive oil, spread in the pan, into a hot 425ish oven on the top shelf until browning, toss, return to oven until soft and crispy edges. We love this stuff, either with ham or with bacon, and could eat it every other day. I may have already posted about that, if I did forgive me, I don't remember and don't have time to keep checking.

I wanted something sort of biscuit-bready with it, so I got out a mixing bowl and put in a cupful of CarbQuik, about 1/4c each of rye flour, golden flaxseed meal, parmesan from the can, and almond flour, about 1t each of baking powder and baking soda, and a dash of salt. Whisked them together, then added 2 eggs and about 1/4c of sour cream; mixed into a stiff dough, then added half'n'half until it was the right consistency - probably 1/2c total - just a guess. I pressed the mixture into my muffin top pan wells with a baggie over my hand, sprayed with nonstick spray. By the time I was ready to put them into the oven they had risen about double in size; I cut crosses into the tops to make them easier to break into quarters (they were pretty big!) after they were done. After the cabbage/onion/ham was about done I lowered the heat to 325 and baked the, um, biscuit-bready things until they were golden and cooked through. And THEY WERE DELICIOUS! My husband calls them sand dollars :). Definitely will make them again, might try with some corn bran instead of rye to see if they'll take on a cornbread-y type flavor. The texture is already similar, although after being in the fridge overnight they slice very easily and make a great sandwich!

Today hubby brought home some frozen pizzas for lunch, there's about 100gN of carbs in one of those which is twice my maximum daily allowance, but it was delicious. I nibbled on it throughout the day. For a snack I had some leftover cabbage/onion/ham from yesterday.

And that's about it for the last 2 days! :) We sure do eat strangely around here don't we? :)
