There are days when I have lots of energy and get so many things done. Today was not one of those days. I have definitely had worse and lazier days but today was a struggle. This morning it took me until about 11:30 to talk myself into working out. I didn't get much done before that. Well, that is not entirely true. I did go through my binder of low carb recipes and I pulled out things that I knew I was never going to make, things that were too complex or complicated or things that were duplicates, or near duplicates, of other recipes. When I put in the chicken parm recipe I realized I already had the exact same recipe in the binder. From the same website and everything.
Speaking of chicken parm, this was what I made last night. It was incredibly good and Ethan said that it is the closest to the real thing of any of the substitutes we have tried so far. I agree. But honestly, the only difference between this and the real thing is pork rinds instead of traditional breading. So I guess it makes sense that it is nearly identical. Ethan has now issued me a challenge to find a good bread alternative to make chicken parm grinders. Challenge accepted!
After we got back from some grocery shopping I got out the dremel and prepped 11 dolls. It's useful to have a bag of ready-to-dress dolls on hand. It's not much harder to dremel 11 dolls than 1. Getting everything out and set up takes the most time after all. So I spent a bit of time in the driveway getting dolls prepped. Partially in anticipation of the storm that is coming tonight. As you can see in the doll pics below, the sky was nice and blue. Now it's clouded up and looks like the snow may start any time now. It's crazy how fast the storms come in. Anyway, we are expecting 5-8 inches of snow last I checked so I am sure I will have a delay at the very least and potentially no school at all. I am OK with no school. Not that I want the year to go longer, but I could use another full day to stay home and work on dolls. My show is coming up fast.
Model Horse Place store soon.
Now I am going to go and make some low carb beef stroganoff. I hope it is wonderful. I'll let you know how it turns out and, as usual, I will share the recipe and my thoughts on it.
