After a bit of discussion, we decided to give it a try.
I'm discovering that between my internet search skills and my natural experimenism in the kitchen, I am coming up with some incredibly delicious things. J. was uncertain if he wanted to try this route until last night, when I served up a low-carb baked chicken cordon bleu in Bearnaise with steamed asparagus. He declared himself sold.
Today I A. picked up a pack of TGIFriday's frozen original hot wings, which are insanely low carb as they skip the breading (which I learned in 2003), and am currently cooking a low-carb stuffed meatloaf with steamed spinach in vinegar and butter.
I THINK we might be able to stick with this. Mainly because one of the first things I found was a good way to fake mac n cheese, for when the psychotic carb urges hit me in a few days.
But for now, I'm having fun flexing my creative cooking muscles.
