hit the floor each morning
the devil says
"Oh Crap, She's up!"


Plant seeds of expectation in your mind; cultivate thoughts that anticipate achievement. Believe in yourself as being capable of overcoming all obstacles and weaknesses.

Hi (I say shyly because I somehow missed your response a whole MONTH ago and am embarrassed!)!
Here is a recipe:
Tofu Parmigiana serves 8 @ 7.5 g carb
2 lb firm tofu, cut in 1/2" thick slices
1 lb mozzarella cheese
2 c Hunt's Meat or Mushroom "Homestyle" pasta sauce
2 T oil
grated Parmesan cheese (the cheap stuff is better for this use)

Heat oven to 350º F. Sprinkle Parmesan on tofu, saute in oil until lightly browned. Layer tofu in baking dish with tomato sauce and mozzarella. Garnish with a bit more Parmesan cheese and bake 30 minutes.

Oven-Fried Eggplant serves 4 @4.8 g carb
1/2 c mayonnaise
1 lb eggplant, sliced 1/2" thick
cheap grated Parmesan cheese (actually, I use crushed pork rinds but given your vegetarian bent, you'll prefer the Parm!)
Heat oven to 425ºF. Lightly grease a baking sheet. Smooth a thin layer of mayo on each side of the eggplant slices then sprinkle heavily with the Parm. Lay slices in a single layer on the baking sheet. Bake each side up 12 minutes.

Cheesy Eggplant Casserole serves 6 @ 9.1 g carb
1 recipe Oven-Fried Eggplant (above)
1 1/4 c spaghetti sauce
1/2 lb grated Mozzarella cheese
1/3 c Parmesan cheese (the good stuff)
In a greased casserole, layer half the eggplant, sauce, and Mozzarella, in order, twice. Sprinkle Parmesan on top. Bake at 350ºF for 20-25 minutes until bubbly.

Mushroom Casserole serves 6 @ 4.4g carb
12 oz fresh sliced mushrooms
3 oz grated Swiss Cheese
1/4 c chopped onion
1/3 c cream
2 eggs
1/2 t tarragon
4 T butter

Heat oven to 325ºF. Grease casserole dish or ramekins. Saute mushrooms and onions in butter until soft. Add tarragon; cook 4 minutes more. Mix cream and eggs in bowl. Sprinkle cheese over dish bottom; cover with mushrooms; pour cream mixture over all. Bake 30 minutes. (note: this is too cheesy to be a quiche, and is absolutely fabulous!)

Just cruising through leaving everyone with some motivational thoughts for today:

“To move head you need to believe in yourself . . . have conviction in your beliefs & the confidence to execute those beliefs.” ~ Adlin Sinclair

“Patience, persistence & perspiration make an unbeatable combination for success.” ~ Napoleon Hill

“Keep away from those who try to belittle your ambitions. Small people always do that, but the really great make you believe that you too can become great.” ~ Mark Twain
