Not really a no spend day but...

January 5th, 2010 at 04:18 am

Thanks for the great ideas for winter comfort foods, y'all. I figured soups and stews would be the favorite and yep, that's pretty much what happened. I love 'em myself, though, and always appreciate new food ideas and y'all came through again.

I wanted cornbread with my lima bean dinner last night but it's too high in carbs so I experimented and came up with a pretty darn good substitute. I used Carbquick and a little bit of a cornbread mix I had lying around and came up with a concoction that actually produced a very cornbread like thing. Yaaaaaay! It's still a little too high in carbs for us to go nuts with but in moderation we should be able to have it once a week or so.

Yesterday four bill payments came out of the bank account but neither of us had personal spending so we sort of, kind of had a No Spend Day! :::insert weak cheer here:::

    I've never heard of Carbquick - is it available at most stores? Congrats on your no spend (bills don't count in my book lol)

    I get it from netrition.com. It's available at some other stores that have low carb foods but it's not at any store near us. It isn't cheap but we don't use it often so it lasts us quite awhile. The biscuits made with it are very good and satisfy our occasional craving for a biscuit with breakfast!

    Thanks, I'll give it a try!

    I'll need to order up some of that. We are low-carb people too.
