Al and Sophia Gonzalez opened their Barbacoa place this weekend. In South Texas, Barbacoa is a very popular weekend Breakfast treat. Barbacoa places are typically open only on the weekends, Saturday and Sunday.  Sophie is Danny’s niece. Al and Sophie both work in the school district. Al’s parents have a Barbacoa place in Corpus Christi, Texas.
I picked up some of their pork rinds (actually they gave me some)GOOD LUCK GUYS!!

4th review-South Beach Living Grlled chicken Caesar Wrap

leave a comment »

I decided to try a wrap sandwich kit by South Beach living–weighing in at 8 net carbs for 2 wraps.  At first glance, the tortillas look pretty small-but it was satisifying.  There was plenty of chicken.

3rd review: Lean Cuisine Steak tips portabello

leave a comment »

Here’s another installment to my reviews of lower carb frozen meals. This one is Lean Cuisine’s Steak tips portabello.  The stats are 180 calories, 10 net carbs, for this 7.5 oz meal. It consists of beef rib tips & portabello mushrooms in a burgundy wine sauce with broccoli. The sauce is yummy!!  I ate this with a baby spinach salad.
 
Fiesta Week is starting on Friday. I’m gonna try to comment on a fiesta event every day during fiesta and I will also try to include a lower carb recipe that could be made in honor of fiesta. Viva Fiesta!!
