I think it was Rick who turned me on to this. It's a keeper for sure.

Wish I could dream up something different for low carb sides.
How about creamed spinach, great with steak, chicken or fish.

This recipe has a little kick to it!

Bea, I swear we're on the same wave length! I just came back from the kitchen after making two individual casseroles of a dreamed up version of creamed spinach!! I hear the music from The Twilight Zone.......

I'll take a picture when we're ready to eat.

The creamed spinach casseroles were Italian influenced with portabella mushrooms, and Italian cheeses.

Kayelle, that is a delicious looking plate of food! I googled "low carb side dishes"; boy, did a list pop up quick! This Allrecipes link was the first one, and the pictures on the screen looked pretty good to me. Low-Carb Side Dish Recipes - Allrecipes.com


I'm feeling better, but my hippy is still a little dippy. It must be the way I slept, because I get some part out of whack on a regular basis. I ran a couple of errands today. Oh boy, didn't want to make supper after that, so we had a quick one. I cut up some of the ham Himself has been eyeing, sliced the rest so he can nibble on it at will, and made a ham and cheese omelet for supper. His side had mild Cheddar cheese, mine had Guggisburg baby swiss. He toasted up a bit of multi-grain ciabatta bread for each of us. Later, we'll have some mixed fruit with a dollop of vanilla ice cream, just for fun.

we've been in Michigan for a couple days for a family wedding, so I was just craving something light and fresh.

I sous vide some U10 shrimp with hot smoked paprika and vanillla bean. Put it on top of shredded romaine, sliced avocado, fresh cilantro, and lime juice. For a dressing, I used my homemade version of bang-bang shrimp sauce.

Cheryl often seems to have a veggie side and a fruit side. A watermelon-feta salad is yummy in the summer.

Tonight I made a big batch of spinach and ricotta-stuffed pasta shells with tomato sauce. Served it with garlic bread sticks and a green salad.

We're making freezer meals for my FIL, so I set aside enough shells and sauce to fill three mini loaf pans and put them in the freezer for him.

That looks delicious, Kay! Pretty little dish on the top front too, reminds me of a dove.

Sounds good, CG. Can't go wrong with an eggy cheesy hammy omelet. Hope you feel better very soon.

Great sounding and inspiring meals this evening!
