Feelin Crummy

leave a comment »

I’ve been feelin crummy for 2 days-probably allergy related-stuffed up ear! I actually slept all night, 2 nights in a row. Anyway, I just attended a 2 day inservice, and I shared my yummy blueberry muffins. Everyone seemed amazed that they were low carb!! They are really very good!! Now, we are out and I have to find the energy to make some more. I don’t think I’ll be makin much til the weekend.

Crockpot Applesauce Chicken

leave a comment »

I made this crockpot dish for our gals beading night. I was a little disappointed in the end result, but Darlin Dan and Jessica liked it. We’ve been eating the leftover chickn in sandwiches and quesadillas. Here’s where I got the recipe… http://crockpot365.blogspot.com/2008/09/crockpot-applesauce-chicken-recipe.html

Hash Brown Chayote

leave a comment »

Goodnes Gracious-Hash Brown Chayote is Delish. So delish, my Darlin Dan gobbled it up. This strange looking vegetable is quickly becoming my new BF.
This is what I did. Again, I used only 1 chayote because I didn’t want to waste a precious chayote if I didn’t care for the end result. I peeled the chayote and then I cut it in half lengthwise. I cut out the small inner seed. Then I got out my trusty salad shooter and grated the chayote. I removed the excess moisture by placing the grated chayote in a colander lined with a coffee maker paper liner. 1 chayote=1 1/2 cups grated goodness. I sauteed the chayote in a skillet with a small amount of oil. I added 1/2 of a chopped onion. I let it cook until it started to brown up. I seasoned it with sea salt and freshly ground pepper. When the chayote was ready, I topped it with grated cheddar cheese.  It does shrink up (just like a potato!) or cook down….?
Next time I make this, I will top it with some sliced green onion and bacon bits.
This is really some good stuff…………..

Fried “Chay-apples”

leave a comment »

I have to admit-these are pretty tasty things. I combined a few recipes and came up with a great tasting fried "Chay-apple".
I will write out the recipe when I make a bigger batch. For my experiment, I used 1 chayote.
We ate some homemade low carb cinnamon ice cream with fried "Chay-apples" on top!

What in the world is Chayote?

with 3 comments

I started reading about Chayote on Low Carb Friends. The Chayote is from the gourd family, along with melons, cucumbers and squash. They are quite peculiar looking.  A Chayote is about the size of a pear.  It is also called a Mirliton or Chocho. 1 Chayote= 35 calores, 7.9 carbs, 3.5 fiber= 4.4 net carbs ……Not bad.

 

I was able to find some easily at La Michocana, a mexican food market.  The price isn’t too bad, 69 cents a pound. I bought 3 Chayotes/ 3 pounds worth.

I’ve got a couple of recipes I want to try.
