I was out of my wheat rolls, so I kind of missed my egg in a bread bowl yesterday!  But I ended up making a hash that looks like ass, but it tasted delicious!  Diced canned potato, diced zucchini, 1/2 ounce fontina cheese and 1/2 cup egg whites.  On the side was a peanut butter/apple arnold bread sammie:

I wished I had diced red pepper in there to make it look nicer!

Before our 45 minute walk, I tested my blood sugar and it was 90 – perfect!  But I needed a bit more fuel so my blood sugar wouldn’t drop too much – this did the trick! 😀

Lunch was a loaded baked potato – a 6 ounce potato with 1 cup of my cincinnati chili from the deep freeze, baby carrots and cucumber with ff ranch dressing.

Last year we discovered fried garlic – it takes fresh garlic to a whole new level – very garlicky, but mild and smokey at the same time.  It’s a great pizza topping!  I ended up using my whole wheat dough I made last week for my pizza – wow, when I took the lid off it almost looked like the dough was moving the yeast was so active!  I plan on baking the rest of it this afternoon.

So my idea for my pizza was to make a New Orleans barbecue shrimp.  One of the first restaurants I worked had made the most amazing barbecue shrimp – the spicy butter sauce was amazing when you dipped crunchy artisan bread into it and sucked all the spices off the shrimp.   But it takes a lot of butter – usually 1 stick of butter for 2 servings!

I decided to use my 5 calorie “spread” to make my sauce for the pizza.  My seasonings for six shrimp:

  • 1 tablespoon worcestershire sauce
  • 1/2 teaspoon black pepper
  • 1/2 teaspoon oregano
  • 1/8 teaspoon cayenne pepper (could have used 1/2 – it wasn’t spicy enough for me)
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon minced garlic
I cooked until almost done in a super hot cast iron skillet

I decided to add the spicy butter mixture to my pizza – it was flavorful, but again, could have had added spice for me!

with fresh basil on top after it comes out of the oven
I had three of these pieces - my dough weighed in at 5 ounces all together

I haven’t figured out my stats for yesterday yet, but I’ll post them later – curious how I did on the carbs, the pizza notwithstanding!

Also, check out Christina’s new feature – Friday Firsts – you submit something new each Friday you did for the week, weather it is trying a new recipe, ingredient or restaurant.  I submitted my whole wheat bread – it was the first time I’ve ever used vital wheat gluten!

Gotta run – I am finally getting together with my Mom for lunch today!  Have a great Saturday! 😀
