Low Carb Shrimp Scampi & Salad

I am trying very hard to stick to my diet, and decided to have a low-carb, mostly low-calorie dinner of shrimp scampi and a salad. I saw a wonderful creamy Cajun shrimp recipe, but I know I would eat too much of the sauce, so I opted for this choice. Starting with a vinaigrette forContinue reading “Low Carb Shrimp Scampi & Salad”

Easy Meal Prep

I’ve had another job change (same hospital, different department and shift), so I’m changing how I meal prep. My husband has made a bunch of breakfast burritos for his lunches before, and I love breakfast burritos! So, I decided to make a low carb (or keto?) version for myself. This week I’m doing a greenContinue reading “Easy Meal Prep”

Run to Stay Warm 2022

Today was a fun day outside. Every year there is a Run to Stay Warm race. You can do a 5k, 10k, or a half marathon. Proceeds go toward helping people pay their electricity bills, specifically people who are in financial hardship at risk of having their electricity shut off. I showed up early… waaaayContinue reading “Run to Stay Warm 2022”

Egg Salad Sandwich (Paleo/Keto/Delicious)

Has this blog turned into a food blog? Maybe‚Ķ temporarily… First: I MADE MAYONNAISE! I’ve tried it before, have failed miserably and wasted eggs and oil. This time was different. This time I followed the very easy instructions in The Primal Gourmet Cookbook. Voila! Mayo! Not only that, but it is delicious! I think I’mContinue reading “Egg Salad Sandwich (Paleo/Keto/Delicious)”

Beef Stroganoff in Acorn Squash

I have made beef stroganoff many times, and I’m not sure I’ve ever followed a recipe. It’s a little different each time, and always delicious. How can you go wrong with meat, mushrooms, and cream? Well… I suppose things can go very wrong. But not with beef stroganoff! Going for the healthier option, I gotContinue reading “Beef Stroganoff in Acorn Squash”

A Tribute to Sue Grafton & Kinsey Millhone (plus some ramblings)

Sue Grafton is one of my favorite writers. She died in 2017, but not before writing what is known as the “alphabet mysteries. It started with “A is for Alibi,” and went to “Y is for Yesterday,” coming out the year she died. I read somewhere her family says the letter z doesn’t exist inContinue reading “A Tribute to Sue Grafton & Kinsey Millhone (plus some ramblings)”

Bunches of Lunches

Here I am again, making lunches. I have a few days off (I took the weekend off for the Joyride, and then I have my normal days off), but I still need to eat lunch. I’m doing intermittent fasting, so my lunch is my first meal. I want it to be a tasty one! IContinue reading “Bunches of Lunches”
