This blog is dedicated to the low-carb menu challenge presented by Jimmy Moore. I'm living the Louisiana low carb lifestyle, where low-carb is the new way to go ! I live southwest of New Orleans, Louisiana....have three awesome kids. We are deep down in the heart of sweet Cajun Country, where we kick back and relax, go hunting, fishing, or make groceries! My doctor told me that my blood pressure numbers were getting too high, so I had to loose weight. She challenged me with ten pounds in three months. That was October 7, 2008. I lost 26 pounds !!! In February of 2011, I found that I had gained a few pounds more than I would have liked, weighing in at 170 pounds. I had to get back into the swing of living the low carb life again !! I am loving the 'low-carb' style and wish to contiue it . I exercise three times a week at the gym, and off the 'off' days, I learn to RELAX !! November 2011, finds me in different circumstances -- a new lifestyle, great community of friends and a challenge to keep that 45 pounds that I lost OFF. Feel free to read my blog, browse around, or just sit a spell!!

Second-Chance Bread



Good thing for second chances !


Today, I decided to give the low carb bread machine recipe another try using my 1.5 to 2 lb. loaf bread machine.

As yall know, I screwed up the first loaf, by not adding any salt, and not adding more splenda.

I did it right this time. The recipe turned out fine, when doubled... but I found these attributes lagging.

The bread came out beautiful today, It has a very good quality and taste to it !

For breakfast, I had two scrambled eggs and one slice wheat bread.

Lunch: Hickory Farms Summer Sausage drizzled in olive oil, fried in my skillet. I made a sandwich with them on my freshly made low carb bread above !

Tonite, I had one cup of broccoli, some lunch meat slices and three strawberries cut up drizzled with whipped cream.

New VIsion, do you have a 1 pound machine or a 1.5 to 2 lb machine ?

Remember to DOUBLE the recipe to get that perfect two pound loaf :)

Good luck,.. I want pictures too !

Hmm, I've just been informed that my little comment was accidentally deleted.

I think I just said that the bread looks delicious! I wish I hadn't given my bread machine away when I started LC ... who knew! Two carbs per slice, that is awesome.

Sorry about that ! I know others have had problems with the blogspot not working. I accidently deleted one of my own comments with yours... and then I read on another blog where people were not receiving their comments when someone posted, so I'm not sure whats going on

I thought it was cute how you popped over to my blog to ask me to repost. :) I know that I cherish every comment that I get and the thought of accidentally deleting one makes me want to cry out NOOOO! hehe. Sorry I didn't have anything more profound to say. ;)
