But "baby steps," here, please, I didn't intend on starving....or to go cold turkey from eating, just cut back.
For dessert, I lit a candle, a Christmas gift from my SIL.
Chocolateness Legacy Candle, by Root. The smell is heavenly. The fragrance alone will satisfy your senses, without the calories, of course. For your "chocolate fix," this is the perfect solution! :)
The recipe below, is one that I have used before when watching my carbs. It is easy and delicious. I intended on fixing it last night for supper, and taking pictures, but had forgotten it has to simmer for 1 1/2 hours. Didn't have time.
Sour Cream Pork Chops
*Boneless pork chops, *onion sliced into rings (optional), *1-8 oz. sliced mushrooms,drained, *1 cup beef broth, *1 tbs. chopped parsley, *1 tsp. prepared mustard, *1/2 tsp. salt and pepper each, *1 cup sour cream
Brown chops, 2 minutes on each side. Place onion over chops, spreading mushrooms over onion. In a small bowl, combine broth, parsley, paprika, mustard, salt and pepper. Pour broth mixture over chops. Cover, reduce heat to med-low and simmer for 1 1/2 hours. Stir in sour cream, and cook an additional 3-4 minutes. Do not let boil.
If you are not watching carbs, the pork chops are wonderful over rice. ~Enjoy!
