I also had some leftover rice cooked with chicken broth, so I reheated that with a couple tablespoons of jarred red salsa and a tablespoon of tomato paste from the freezer. Then I mixed together some sour cream, lime juice and zest and cilantro with a little salt and sugar. It turned out really well.

Dagnabit, GG, those enchiladas look so good! Missing Mexico...

I had a ham and Havarti sandwich with mayo and sprouts on whole grain toast. Healthy CAN be delicious! I keep telling myself.

We had bibimpap made with the Korean-style marinated pork belly I started Sunday. Cooked it for about 2.5 hours yesterday at 300. Ended up cutting off the skin cause it got a little dark (even with foil tent) and cutting meat up in cubes. Served with jasmine rice, bibimpap sauce, garnishes of shitakes, carrots, spinach, bean sprouts, with an over-easy egg on top. No leftovers cause someone REALLY liked the pork belly marinated and cooked that way. I'll admit I had a few nibbles as well while I was cubing it up.

It's very rich, not low cal, but low carb for sure. The Kale was a great addition we really liked. I'll work out the recipe and post it tomorrow.
