I made a small plate of antipasto. 3 slices of Provolone, salami, roasted red peppers and splash of red wine vinegar. Then I was still a little hungry so I stole two slices of liverwurst from my hubby. It was actually not that bad-very filling.

- zoodles ("noodles" made from strands of zucchini) sauteed in hamburger drippings, with a sauce made from leftover Eggplant and Hamburger Casserole, thinned with some heavy whipping cream and topped with shredded cheese (a blend of mozzarella, cheddar and provolone) - cucumbers in a mixture of ranch and sour cream
- zoodles ("noodles" made from strands of zucchini) sauteed in lard, with a sauce made from leftover Eggplant and Hamburger Casserole, thinned with some heavy whipping cream and topped with shredded cheese (a blend of mozzarella, cheddar and provolone) - cucumber with Caesar dressing (bad choice of dressing, but I was tired of ranch)
Low carb tortilla wrap (3 net gr carbs) filled with tuna salad (mayo, tomatoes, lettuce, albacore tuna, pickles, celery, olives and a bit of onion if you like that). I also mix the mayo (0 carbs) with a little cream and some onion or garlic salt. Atkins has a ranch dressing recipe to die for, and I have also used that in this wrap. Egg salad is also good in this.
Maybe these are more lunch selections, but they are still very good lighter dinner choices.

My name is Jeanne (pronounced Jean ee); I live in eastern Washington State.
Maw, it definitely helped. I chopped the beef and mix it in the sauce before I left for work so it could sort of marinate and it was pretty good. The sauce has horseradish in it which I love so it had a nice kick.
I don't know that I would call it a bbq sauce but from what little I read it's an Alabama thing and it is traditionally used on chicken.
I tried a new recipe for asian beef it was flavorless and as tough as shoe leather! Since I batch cook I'm stuck with it for the next several days. I was trying to think of how I could rescue it and bbq beef came to mind but I didn't feel like making bbq sauce and store bought has too much sugar. I found a recipe for white bbq sauce that is mayonnaise based and a throw together kind of recipe it only took about 3 minutes to prepare and it was delicious!
So I had beef with white bbq sauce & buttered asparagus.
Come on, peoples! Surely I'm not the only one around here who eats supper/dinner! What do you eat? Who cares if it's not exciting. Mine usually aren't, either. Who has time to fix exciting all the time, anyway. What did you eat last night?
I had leftover meatloaf, buttered broccoli, and carrot salad (shredded carrot, sunflower seeds, mayo, cinnamon and splenda)
At a mom-and-pop Mexican restaurant - I asked for fajitas, minus the tortilla and rice, and with extra lettuce. What I got was the skillet-y thing of beef, onions and peppers, and a big pile of lettuce with a little bit of tomato, some cheese, and a scoop each of sour cream and guacamole. Very good and reasonably low carb.
All of which would have been fine if I'd been cooking! I'd have used whipping cream in the soup. Instead, Mom used skim milk and thickened it with flour. And it still ended up watery. No need to thicken it with whipping cream. Oh well. That's the price for being at her house.
I mixed some seafood cocktail sauce with mayo to use a dip/dressing. It's 3 carbs per tablespoon, but the mayo cuts that down considerably. It's a lot better than the 7 carbs in the fat free and reduced fat ranch Mom has.
pork chop green beans with sour cream and dill salad (lettuce, parsley, celery, carrot, cherry tomatoes) with a dressing of mayo and salsa (the only dressing Mom has is fat free or reduced fat ranch, both with 7 carbs per 2 T)
pork chop green beans with sour cream and dill acorn squash with butter (Acorn squash is not low carb. I got a delicata squash (which is relatively low carb) for me and an acorn squash for Mom, but my delicata was rotten at the end. I had some of Mom's acorn squash instead.)
Tonight I am baking Cheesy Chicken Thighs.....I'll serve these with a veggie and side salad.
Cheesy Chicken Thighs 6 - 4 ounce boneless skinless chicken thighs (you can use breast if you like) 4 tbsp butter 2 cloves garlic chopped (use more or less to your taste) 1 cup shredded cheese -- I like cheddar and/or pepper jack .5 cup Paremsan Cheese
Melt butter and garlic in a pyrex baking dish in the microwave for 1 minute. Coat chicken completely in butter and garlic mixture (in the same pan). Coat in Parmesan cheese (in the same pan). Coat with shredded cheese (in the same pan)!
Bake at 350 for 1 hour. Let rest for 15 minutes before serving!!

Canned green beans and slices of Spam fried in lard. I'm trying out possible disaster rations. Spams not all that bad, at least not when fried in lard. Not healthy, probably, but then this is emergency rations, not something I'd eat every day.
Caveat for newbies - this thread was started about a year ago as a place for people to post what they were actually eating. We get requests for this sort of thing every now and again, sometimes from newbies and sometimes from old hands at low carb who are getting in a rut. Anyway, people posted what they really ate, and it wasn't always on plan. Please take this into consideration as you read these menus. If something seems wrong, it may be! Please, please, please - if you see something that doesn't seem right, ask us about it BEFORE you eat it! It may be just fine - pork rinds with butter are OK. Or it may not be - candy bars, for example.
I hope you can find some new and interesting things to try and that you get some good ideas for ways to adjust your current eating to this new way of eating.
