1. Sorry I haven’t been updating much. Between working the holiday rush at my seasonal non-digging job, taking the GRE, and enjoying a shit-tastic flu, I haven’t been cooking much. In fact, I’m suffering from my sick person’s diet of dehydrated chicken noodle soup, because I’ve been THAT uninterested in food or cooking.
2. …except for on Christmas Eve! The tradition in my family is a big meal the night before Christmas, so that we can spend Christmas day eating omelets and watching Star Wars and all that good shit.
I decided to make four things I’ve never made before for Christmas Eve this year. All of them turned out beautifully and were amazingly good. Here are links, for your perusal:
Cucumber and Zucchini Carpaccio Salad (lacto-ovo, gluten-free, low-carbohydrate)
Aigo Bouido, or Provencale garlic soup (can be made vegetarian-friendly [which I did], gluten-free, low carbohydrate)
Roasted Cauliflower and Cabbage Pasta with Fried Capers and Cheddar (lacto-ovo, gluten-free [depending on what kind of pasta or pasta substitutes you use], low carbohydrate [again, depending on your pasta])
Cranberry Lemon Loaf (lacto-ovo, gluten-free, low carbohydrate)
I suggest you try them all!
