Low Carb Tortilla

leave a comment »

I tried  Mission Brand Carb Balance Whole Wheat Fajita Size Tortillas on Sunday. I thought that they were cool. I like toasty tortillas and they toast up real good!

1 tortilla is 4 net carbs!! They have a heap of fiber.

I made picadillo to go with my beans I made in my new pressure cooker. I made fideo for my hubby. We had a feast.

I LUV EGG BITES

leave a comment »

I Egg Bites. I’ve mentioned Egg Bites before. They are SO delicious. I got the recipe from Michelle’s blog, http://theworldaccordingtoeggface.blogspot.com/.
I did have a problem with this scrumptious recipe.  My egg bites would stick to my muffin pan. I even e-mailed Shelly and asked for help. When my egg bites still stuck, I went out and bought me some new mini muffin pans.

I found these at Big Lots. They are great.

I made some ham and cheese egg bites this afternoon for tomorrow’s breakfast on the run.They did not stick at all.

Problem solved!! These things are just too good to stop making them because they stick to my old mini muffin pan.

I  MACY’S
We visited Macy’s today because we had 3 $10 coupons (just like ca$h) that were expiring on Monday. I bought this beautiful pressure cooker for $10 (orig. 49.95)!!This is very exciting.
I got it home and soaked some pinto beans-and then cooked them for 25 minutes..They are fantastic!!

It’s Friday and my sis is coming for a visit

leave a comment »

I love it when my sis comes to visit. She lives in League City, just outside of Houston. She’ll be arriving this evening.  We plan to go eat some Tex-Mex, drink some Tequila, and listen to the Mariachis.  Sounds good doesn’t it.
 
I have big cooking plans this weekend. Let’s see how much I get done.

Bon Voyage Amanda and Jerry/ 1st review of lower carb frozen meals

leave a comment »

Amanda and Jerry are leaving today. They are goin’ cruisin’ down to Cozumel, Mexico.  I know that they are going to have the most wonderful time. I  checked the Galveston webcam (http://www.galveston.com/webcams/)  and saw the ship waiting for them. This is a little ritual I go through everytime I go cruisin. Have to check the ship on the webcam.  I actually saw the ship depart at 4:35 this afternoon. I was waving to them over the computer.  The weather for Saturday in Cozumel is —scattered showers, high 85, low 73.  Not bad, not bad at all.
Review of lower carb frozen meal(from my list on March 12):
I have to report that I ate a South Beach Living Caprese Style Chicken with broccoli  (White meat chicken strips in a marinara sauce with ricotta and mozzarella, served with broccoli) frozen meal for lunch. The net carb count is 7, calories 260.  It was tasty and with strawberries for dessert, I was very satisfied.  I would eat this frozen meal again.
Will report on another frozen meal very soon.
