My wife and I use these when we make personalized pizzas with our low carb tortillas. No carbs I them. Regular pepperoni has maybe one or 2. Taste is pretty good too. You could use these on some cheese slices for a quick snack too.
I suppose your wondering where I've been. The correct answer to that question is in the lovely, cold desolate land of fatherhood. Wandering the dessert aimlessly trying to stay alive at all costs.
That's the short correct answer anyway.
The long answer is as follows...
I got a new job. I can honestly say for the first time in a long time that I really enjoy it too. Not too stressful, it's challenging, and for the most part each day I have been there I have left feeling a success. It's pretty exciting. Prior to being in this job I spent the last 11 months working at the giant of Costco. And while I can't say anything bad about the company itself, the job I had was pretty stupid. I was often bored, and felt misused. Talents wasted. That's not the case anymore.
My little girl is growing up more and more. She is jabbering each day now and figuring out how to manipulate her father through the perfect tones in her cries. It wont be long and I will be spending my midlife crisis funds on her Barbie dream house.
If you like a smile, I have been continuing my little experienment of posts that are Daddy Daughter Day related. Enjoy. or Don't. I don't care what you think. I like it.
It's been almost 6 months since my dad pasted away. I still think about him and miss him. His birthday would be this week. I know he was proud of me, but I know that I could do better than what he saw of me.
I am blessed with an amazing, forgiving, graceful wife that loves me and cares for me. She takes care of our daughter in a town she hardly knows, surrounded by people she hardly knows. She is pretty awesome.
Hopefully in the next few weeks we will begin our new creative arts journey that brought us to Fargo. That's easier said than done sometimes though.
Oh yeah Fargo. I watched the show. Did you? I loved it and I live here. It's nothing like life here at all though. I mean, when we murder people its a lot less interesting.
A movie I helped make is finally getting screened. If you live in PA you can see it. Here a link to info about it. Makin Wookiee
Outside of that I can't really say much else has been going on. I have had to try to hit Atkins hard a bit again. Mainly because my diet has strayed into dangerous territory. My previous job at Costco had me walking a lot. Like a-lot a-lot so I didn't have to exercise as much during the day. I got away with a lot more sneaky carbs. Those days are done now.
Ok well, I should go.
Whats up with you folks?
I saw this in the freezer section and I succumbed to its marketing. Meat made for men. I love meat, and I am a man. It makes sense. ManCave brand meats are the new thing.
I took home the Bacon Cheeseburger. I was curious if they could harness the flavor in a brat. actually its not that hard to do really. Bacon and cheese are really the main ingredients.
These guys were pretty tasty. Authentic which is cool. Made fresh in smaller batches. I like that. I am interested in trying their breakfast brats at some point.
Anyway, yes they are good. But not really cheap. You can get other brats by companies like Hillshire and others for half the price. they are a little more processed, but that's the scale you have to balance. You want cheap? or you want fresh?
Me, I want delicious.
The Atkins Bacon Scramble is simple enough. Eggs and bacon always work together. Add cheese and you have something great. And more cheese and you are really on to something.
Don't let the words "cheese sauce" scare you. It's totally a good idea here. It's a yummy bowl that nails what breakfast should be. No complaints here.
Over the months I have posted several quick reviews about the products made under the Atkins Diet brand name. Since there are so many different products available with new ones being added all the time, and since they are such helpful snacks to get through the day, I thought it might be a good idea to post them all here in one place for people to find.

I am a big fan of curry. I love it when its got a little spice to it and a nice sweetness. It's a great chilly day meal and if you live in the Midwest like me you will have a bunch of those. Curry is where it's at for me.
That being said, I have no idea how to make a great version of curry on my own. I know I could look for a recipe, but I love things that are easy and help the lazy cook like me achieve his mealtime goals. Sooooo...when I saw Campbell's Thai Green Curry Skillet sauce on the shelf I knew I had to give it a try.
You just add chicken. It's that easy. You could add veggies too if you wanted to, but chicken is all you need. The flavor is pretty great. It has a great balance of sweetness and spice. Some curry sauces are bland and lack the kick I like, this was pretty good. And you could taste the slight use of coconut in it too. Thats a major plus for me. It brings great flavor and helps to keep that sweet taste. I would use this stuff again for sure.
So far, campbell sauces have been pretty good and I have been happy with them. And the fact that there are a couple with low carb options are great news for us.
Need a cookie? Don't we all.
Heres an option for you folks with a sweet tooth that need something a bit more after your meal. A sweet snack that doesn't taste too artificial and has some good substance to it. Murray's Sugar Free Fudge Dipped Vanilla Wafers are low in carbs, have a great taste, and help to fulfill the need for those chocolate mid day cravings. They are light and airy so they won't fill you up or make you feel to bloated either.
