Weight Loss Chart from Patchwork Times by Judy Laquidara

It’s been 5 weeks today since we started our new way of eating, which I hope is a lifetime change but time will tell. For me, it’s more of a new way of drinking since the Dr. Peppers are gone, for the most part. I still have one about once a week if I really...

Bacon Cheeseburger Soup from Patchwork Times by Judy Laquidara

One of the recipes I’ve fixed recently was Peace, Love & Low Carb’s Bacon Cheeseburger Soup. It really tasted like a cheeseburger! The recipe called for 1.5 pounds of ground beef. I had two one pound packages so I used them both and added a bit more of everything so we would have leftovers. I...

Dinner Tonight from Patchwork Times by Judy Laquidara

Today was a day we were going to fast completely. Most everyone has an opinion about fasting. Some do it for different reasons. Some think it’s crazy. I have done it for years for spiritual reasons but usually . . in fact, except for once, it’s been fairly short fasts – 24 to 36 hours....

Kitchen Experiments from Patchwork Times by Judy Laquidara

Besides Vince having more energy, and getting things done around the house and feeling good .. he’s decided to get more involved in the kitchen. I’m not sure how I feel about that yet. Over the weekend, he was reading about fermenting foods and how it changes the sugars and carbs and I’m not sure...

Dinner Tonight from Patchwork Times by Judy Laquidara

Dinner tonight was a mishmash of what we were both wanting but it was still low carb. Summer sausage (1 carb per 2 oz.), a little mustard, brie, guacamole, 2 little tomatoes that I didn’t eat, bacon wrapped jalapeno poppers and some kind of seaweed cracker. It wasn’t bad but I love rice crackers with...

Dinner Tonight from Patchwork Times by Judy Laquidara

Tonight was a total screw up for dinner, but it worked. There was a chicken recipe on the menu scheduled for tonight but when I went to get the chicken out of the fridge this morning, it was still frozen solid but the ground meat was defrosted so I said to myself . . I’ll...

Dinner Tonight from Patchwork Times by Judy Laquidara

You don’t have to tell me . . I know it already! When I’m doing something, and having fun, I think the whole world should do it with me and I probably sound that way about this diet but truly, I understand it isn’t for everyone. Today a reader wrote me that her husband is...

Dinner Tonight from Patchwork Times by Judy Laquidara

On the menu for dinner tonight was Blue Cheese Pork Medallions. I had looked forward to that dish all week. This morning Vince announced: There’s a ham in the shop fridge that needs to be used. He had bought it a week or so ago when I wasn’t with him and I totally forgot about...

Craveable Keto Cookbook from Patchwork Times by Judy Laquidara

With so many recipes on the internet, I can’t even tell you the last time I bought a cookbook for myself. Most all of the keto recipes I’ve been making have come from the Peace, Love & Low Carb website. Everything I’ve made from there has been amazing and having easy to make, yummy recipes...

Dinner Tonight from Patchwork Times by Judy Laquidara

I didn’t do a report yesterday which was the end of our two week diet period. Vince lost 19 pounds. I lost 10. His blood pressure is getting close to the point where his doctor told him he could reduce his blood pressure meds. I’ve quit taking my blood pressure every day. My blood pressure...

I knew the Pork Eggrolls in a Bowl was going to be terrific and it was! We also had roasted brussels sprouts but this time I chopped them and did them in the countertop convection oven because I could do more of them then I can do in the air fryer. I often have to...

Test Knit #1 Finished from Patchwork Times by Judy Laquidara

It’s amazing what we all can do when we set our minds to it. Last night I finished the first test knit I was doing. I finished it in a little over two weeks. I used a total of 1,013 yard. That’s what can happen when I start a project and pretty much stick with...

Today’s Meals from Patchwork Times by Judy Laquidara

My cooking plans always include having enough food leftover that I don’t have to cook on weekends. Yesterday, we could have had chili but I had the pork in the fridge that I needed to cook. Tonight we’re having chili. For breakfast we had leftover sausage rolls, eggs and cheese. There will be a menu...

Dinner Tonight from Patchwork Times by Judy Laquidara

Another great dinner with leftovers for another meal. Yay! About noon I seasoned country style pork ribs and put them in the oven at 300 and left them til about 4:00, flipping them over once. About 4:00 I switched the oven to 375 convection and they cooked probably another 30 minutes. They were moist and...

Breakfast This Morning from Patchwork Times by Judy Laquidara

I hope you don’t get tired of me posting the keto recipes. Even those who have no interest in the keto diet could probably use a bit more “low carb” in their lives so I’m only posting the ones that I think are delicious and that anyone would like. I don’t think anyone would think...

Another super easy and super yummy dinner tonight. It’s easy to eat low carb when the food is this good. The salads were a combinations of lettuce out of the garden with a bit of storebought lettuce. Vince tilled up a good section of the garden. I know you folks up north are hating us...

Dinner Last Night from Patchwork Times by Judy Laquidara

I knew I had taken a picture of the plate last night but just now figured out my phone is putting pictures where I can’t find them. I found this one in my Google files on the Chromebook and this is one of the prettiest dinners I’ve made lately so I wanted to share it....

Dinner Tonight from Patchwork Times by Judy Laquidara

Tonight I had leftover roasted chicken and asparagus that needed to be cooked. I’m not a fan of leftovers unless I can disguise them enough that they don’t taste like leftovers. I had looked through low carb recipes online and nothing had jumped out at me for the chicken. Then I was finishing up the...
