I don't usually have lunch, maybe just a piece of cheese or a few nuts. But yesterday I had half a dozen fresh smelts breaded with almond meal and fried in avocado oil with a small salad. Yum!

Loving the wonderful fresh fish my local market has on Fridays and Saturdays!!

I got my BGL down to 168 after 12 hours so I had an egg burrito for lunch. I think I'll have another cup of coffee with that.

I'm guessing Neily, you are not using a low carb tortilla. what else is in your burrito besides eggs? I could eat low carb tortillas for a little bit, but even they started spiking my BG and I had to quit them.

Hamburger soup. Used what I had on hand which was:

_cooked hamburger
_what was left in a jar of spaghetti sauce (about 1/2c)
_leftover spaghetti squash
_beef bullion
_some frozen spinach
_dehydrated onion
_dehydrated garlic
_dried basil
and water

Simmered this all morning - it was delicious.

I had never thought of using spaghetti squash in a soup, but it was great. It'll be a regular for soups now. (I freeze portions of cooked s. squash so it's easy to grab and heat up.)

Cute little open-face sandwich . . . pimiento cheese spread piled on a bacon weave base. I shoulda taken a picture, but . . . y'know how it is.

For a meal containing one single solitary carb, it was delightfully delicious and very Very filling!

Mom's Day brunch at a restaurant with the family. Salmon, ham, green beans, cheese, raw broccoli/salad and iced tea. For desert some more cheese, broccoli and coffee.

Shanny, how did you get the weave to hold together? I've tried it a few times but they always fall apart. Did you bake them? I tried pan frying with no success.

I do bake them. A 1 pound package of bacon makes six of the small weaves which I find most useful. I bake them at 350 on a jellyroll pan lined with parchment paper. Using three slices per weave - I cut the slices in half, and when I construct the lattice, I make sure the slices are scooted up nice & close so they bond together in the cooking. About halfway through - prob'ly 15 minutes or so using plain bacon, not thick-sliced - I flip them over & finish baking. Once they're nice & crisp, I drain them on paper towels before storing them.

I haven't tried this with thick-sliced, just because it would take longer to cook, and because these are plenty sturdy made with just regular thickness.

Thanks Shanny, I wanted to make these for blts and was frustrated when they separated in the pan. I'll try again and bake them. I wonder if I do them on a rack if I can skip the turn step? I love your idea of using them like a cracker!!
