Sleepy Little Llama Crochet Pattern

I had this skein of yarn laying around that I had bought last summer. It wasn’t expensive, but the color just looked so appealing to me, however; I wasn’t sure what to do with it. I kept looking at it wondering what it could be. (this may the reason why my yarn stash is so, well….let’s just call it “healthy”!)

Sometimes I can’t imagine yarn just becoming a hat or scarf or blanket, sometimes it’s as if I can hear it begging to be something ultimately “cooler” and preferably with a personality! Maybe the yarn just wants to know it will be hugged and or loved by someone (I mean, can you blame it afterall? Who doesn’t want to be hugged and loved from time to time?)

Bacon is irreplaceable! BUT….just maybe…

It’s true! Bacon can simply not be replaced.

When I recently went to a Pescatarian lifestyle I knew the hardest thing about this change was going to be saying goodbye to bacon.

Seriously, Steak, eh. Chicken, meh. But bacon….I mean BACON, crispy, fried, heavenly, melt in your mouth bacon!!!!!!! How could I possibly say goodbye. Bacon is the boy that you just can’t let go…you know what I’m talking about! That bad boy that is terrible for you! The one your dad forbids you see!

Now mind you, this can be ordered in the store as well but only with careful planning! You see the problem is that Starbucks stores loves sugar, and they like to make their drinks with plenty of the sweet stuff! But us KETO folks know that sugar = carbs and other yucky things we want to avoid. Here is my way of making this delicious drink at home! If you want to read about how I order in the store, I’ve added that below.

Cauli-Mac & Cheese, 7 Net Carbs of Comfort

What’s wrong with this title? How can we call it Mac & Cheese when there is nothing even remotely resembling Macaroni in it? This is the ongoing argument between my husband John, and I. Now, while part of me agrees with him, the part that grew up on homemade, crispy topped, giant casserole dishes of ooey, gooey, ACTUAL macaroni…there’s also the Keto/LCHF/Banting goddess that resides in my brain gently reminding me that cauliflower actually is similar to macaroni.

Sweet & Salty Holiday Snack Board

A snack board. Pure joy and happiness! The one pictured has a little Keto for me and a little regular for some guests. But you can easily switch out your selections for whatever crowd you’re pleasing!

And while you can share them year round….there’s just something about a “Holiday” snack board. Think of all the many times they make sense! Continue reading “Sweet & Salty Holiday Snack Board”
