Thursday's Dinner Thread, 12/4/14

I plan on having leftover BBQ meatloaf, fresh mashed potatoes and canned green beans, and maybe a tortilla.

What's happening in your kitchen?

Just finished putting together a recipe of turkey-mushroom crepes with white wine-tarragon sauce. The recipe made a l-o-t, so I divided it into two portions, one of which will make its way to the freezer. It's always nice to have something in reserve when schedules get busy during the holidays.

Along with the crepes we'll have Italian green beans, canned from the summer's garden, maybe a potato roll or two with butter, iced tea, and the last of the pumpkin cheesecake.

MEAT-za! Basically, it's pizza with a "crust" made of Italian sausage and ground beef.

I had my doubts when I started putting it together but, honest to goodness, this has got to be one of the best things I've ever put in my mouth.

Recipe please, Steve? It looks delish and I'm thinking hard about following your diet. Would you also leave the the diet link purdy please?

We went to Costco today and picked up the mandatory rotisserie chicken so we'll be having some of that tonight with the leftover Orzo Rosotto from last night that was killer good. I have some broccolini to add the green.

That does look good.

Recently I found out that in Argentina they have a pizza made using pork as a crust. I was ready to get on a plane that night!

Sure thing, K! Here's the recipe:
Meat-za Pizza Crust

As for the diet, I get most of my information and recipes from these two places.

Ruled Me | Ruling the Keto Diet & Getting in Shape – Guides | Recipes | Tips
Ketogenic Diet Resource

There are a few other resources, including some books. If you look over the links above and think it's something you might be interested in, I can share those, too.

I'll be perfectly honest. This Keto diet is definitely not for everyone. It's very restrictive - even more so than Atkins or Paleo. But I'm doing it for my health. My wife is doing it with me, and has complained at times. But she's lost almost 10 pounds in the last three weeks, so the complaining has died down somewhat.

Thanks PPO!

Oh, and your carne looks great. I've been hungry for Mexican, but it's so hard to find choices that don't include beans, rice, or tortillas. However, I've seen some things on Rick Bayless' show that have sparked some ideas, and have also been thinking about trying a flourless Chile Relleno sort of concoction.
