There's still deli roast beef left over, so I made more of the same burritos that better half raved over the other day - fine strips of the beef & Bush's baked beans added (to his). I do think just the plain beef is delicious - it's so nice & rare & tender - salt/pepper is all it needs, but he thinks the Bush folk invented baked beans . . . :rolleyes:

Mmmmm... I haven't had deli roast beef in a while, I need to get some. When we were breadaholics, we would buy it shaved, then sautee it up with onions, load it on hoagies with some provolone for philly cheesesteaks!

I don't know that it would have the same effect without the hoagie, but maybe just rolling up a slice of beef and provolone together and heating it up would be good... could make a horseradish dipping sauce or some au jus with sauteed onions... hmmmmmmm

I bet it would made up as a wrap . . . I roll up cream cheese & sometimes my cheese spreads if they're thick enough, in just the beef slices. Anything's better rolled up in beefsteak! :D

Tonight I went to my niece's house to celebrate my great nephew's 6 month old birthday (really just an excuse to see the little guy! He's so cute!). My sisters, brother-in-law, and niece all had tacos and I had a taco salad with just a small handful of tortilla chips crushed on it. It was delicious! I took my bg's before meal and it was 123 (very respectable for me) and took just my base amount of insulin (12 u Humulog). About an hour after dinner I was feeling pretty funky so I took my bg and it was 65! I was able to enjoy a chocolate cupcake and about a scoop of moosetracks ice cream to help raise it. About 15 minutes after I ate that I checked bg's again and was only at 87. Felt better, and glad my numbers didn't skyrocket after eating so much carb and sugar, but that low was really bad and I was feeling pretty bad. I leveled out at 87 and was fine after that. I'm glad my numbers are getting better for sure, but I'm going to have to ask the doctor about if my number is decent before meal and I'm not planning to eat alot of carb if I should back off the base amount and do smaller amount, if any at all at that point. I don't like having low's; they are just exhausting and I always have a headache afterwards.

Meatloaf with grassfed ground beef... I still use regular breadcrumbs because it works out to minimal amounts of carbs per serving, but am thinking of trying almond meal next time. Steamed broccoli slathered in grassfed butter - our bodies need fat in order to absorb all the nutrients from our veggies!

Yum!
My husband chops up almonds in the food processor and adds to his meatloaf and I love it

Chicken Cacciatore..

without pasta. :(
I've only made this once, years ago...but it was really good. I might have to try it again... with spaghetti squash or zucchini noodles.

I have been playing the domestic goddess today. Cooked up a very nice Leek and Broccoli soup for lunch and a hearty beef stew with a side of green cabbage for tea.

Last night I had a feast. My mom gave us a turkey for thanksgiving but we forgot it in the car overnight, so an unplanned turley dinner. Glorious! I had Turkey, peas, stuffing a roasted potatoes and to finish it all off a piece of lemon pie. Muy wife made me and said that it wouldn't kill me, so I caved. 2 hour PD was 6! I couldn't believe it!

One more wrap from the deli roast beef (and we polished it off, I promise!) ;)

I sliced it very thin again, as usual, placed it in the wrap along with a handful of grated sharp cheddar cheese & 2-3 tbsp. of minced onion. Rolled it up & warmed it enough to melt the cheese, then I drizzled it with the au jus I'd kept from roasting it - since I had rubbed the roast with coconut oil for roasting it, the au jus was a nice beefy coconut oil sauce & was perfect to moisten the wrap. Had to be eaten with a fork, of course. Only mistake was serving it on paper plates, and everlovin's request was to serve it next time on "real" plates, so he could cut it up without cutting up his plate. Y'think he expects to have it again? :D

Zucchini and meatballs here...delicious! 1/2 grassfed beef, 1/2 salsicca sausage (fresh made no-nitrates)... used a different attachment on my mandolin and it sliced the zucchini into perfect "noodles" - sauteed those in grassfed butter until a little tender. So yummy!
