lunch today...

was some sliced black forest ham and colby jack cheese and sliced raw carrots, lunch comes in at 5 carbs.

Came home and started cooking, after resting for a bit. I am making my first batch of oopies rolls. Stole this from Jamie aka Carbarella at Your Lighter Side. I did a double batch and added a pinch of cinnamon and a pinch of splenda to the second half. I can't wait to see how these turn out! It seems really simple. 3 eggs, 3 oz of cream cheese and a pinch of cream of tartar. I doubled this and used a 1/4 tsp of cream of tartar so that I could do the sweet rolls, too. I put the egg whites and cream of tartar in my Kitchenaid stand mixer and put it on 10 and let'r rip. I creamed the cream cheese and egg yolks with my hand mixer and by the time I was done with that, I had some really stiff peaks in the egg whites. Spray a cookie sheet with non-stick spray and make six mounds of mixture and flatten them a little. Bake at 300 for 30 min and there you have it!!!

I plan to use some Anne H's aka CarbTripper 's recipes, as well. She made bacon with brown sugar/splenda on it that looked delish!!! I have been wanting to try that for months. She fried the bacon and when it was almost done, you pour off the fat and add some brown sugar splenda blend and then let it carmalize!! Yum!!!

Tonight's dinner will be taco salad sans nacho chips. With 2 tbs of salsa, dinner will be 10 carbs. Total so far is 19. Only 1 left!!
