Today’s Dinner from Patchwork Times by Judy Laquidara

Vince made smoked salmon today. I told him that since he does such an amazing job with that smoked salmon, he should start cooking more meals. He said “I’ll think about it” and then 2 seconds later, he said “No.” I said “No, what?” and he said he had thought about cooking more and the...

Dinner Last Night from Patchwork Times by Judy Laquidara

We had leftover roasted chicken in the fridge from when I had roasted the whole chicken to get the bones to make bone broth. I used that leftover chicken to make Buffalo Chicken Salad last night. Super quick. Super good. Super keto! I added a little butter to a skillet, added the chicken, poured a...

Blueberry Clafoutis from Patchwork Times by Judy Laquidara

While searching for low carb recipes last week, I came across a recipe for low carb Blackberry Clafoutis. I told myself if we stayed on track and didn’t eat too many carbs during the week, I’d make this over the weekend . . we did . . and I did! I could have been a...

Golden Milk from Patchwork Times by Judy Laquidara

Several years ago, a friend gave me a recipe for Golden Milk. It’s made with coconut milk, turmeric, ginger, black pepper, coconut oil and cinnamon. It can be sweetened with honey, maple syrup or an artificial sweetener. I have some “maple syrup” with artificial sweetener that I’m not crazy about but it works just fine...

Chicken Feet/Bone Broth from Patchwork Times by Judy Laquidara

We’ve been watching video interviews with various doctors, mostly chiropractors specializing in nutrition. There are five videos available per day so, depending on how late in the day we get started, we’ve had some late nights of watching these videos but most of them are excellent. Through the years, especially since we’ve been learning more...

Bacon & Mushroom Pork Chops from Patchwork Times by Judy Laquidara

Our meal today was Bacon & Mushroom Smothered Pork Chops. This was so delicious. I started cooking it this morning and could hardly wait to eat. To start with, I was able to get a pork loin last week that was marked down to $5.50. Knowing I would use it soon, I just stuck it...

Dinner from Patchwork Times by Judy Laquidara

As expected, dinner was amazing. It is the Crustless Taco Pie. You can see from the numbers that I got very close to where I need to be, remembering that I try to stay between 50 and 55 grams of protein. What I ate today: Crustless Taco Pie (one serving – recipe link above) Avocado...

Dinner Tonight from Patchwork Times by Judy Laquidara

Dinner tonight looks like it’s going to be yummy! We’re having Crustless Taco Pie. This morning Vince took my car to get it inspected, brought it back, took his car to get it inspected and then he was going shopping. Yay! Cars inspected, shopping done and I didn’t have to leave home. When I’m home...

Avoiding Alzheimer’s from Patchwork Times by Judy Laquidara

Vince and I watched a series that ended last night on avoiding Alzheimer’s by Dr. Perlmutter. Most of these types series are free to watch for a period, then you have to pay but often, you can search the internet and find them still available. I believe the name of this one was Avoiding Alzheimer’s....

Protein in the Diet from Patchwork Times by Judy Laquidara

A reader asked in a comment: I am just curious – how do you get enough protein if you only eat one meal/day? I am not a doctor and I am definitely NOT giving medical advice. These are just my thoughts. Most of the recommendations I see for protein requirements for a 50+ year old...

Change of Menu Plans from Patchwork Times by Judy Laquidara

This afternoon I had to go to the dentist and when I left there, I ran by the grocery store to get chicken livers to make food for Rita. I found these Ribeye steaks marked down from $17.25 to $12 and they looked good so I got them. I already had leftovers out of the...

Wants vs. Needs from Patchwork Times by Judy Laquidara

Vince’s blog posts make me think . . not so much about what I’ll buy but more so about what he thinks about the things I buy. I’ll admit that there are some things I think I’ll use, I buy and then I don’t use. Recently, I ordered a few cookie cutters. It may have...

Turkey Wrap with Basil Mayo from Patchwork Times by Judy Laquidara

Earlier this week, we had turkey wraps with basil mayo. I followed the recipe which used sliced turkey and that was so yummy. Today I made that again but I chopped the cooked turkey (leftover from the turkey I cooked last week), stirred it into the mayo and made it more like a turkey salad....

Tonight’s Dinner from Patchwork Times by Judy Laquidara

Tonight’s dinner was PF Chang’s Copycat Keto Lettuce Wraps. They were delicious . . and quick . . and easy! It was served with Vince’s pickled carrots and a few grape tomatoes. The only thing I changed was adding chopped peanuts to the top. And, I used chicken breasts instead of thighs because I had...

Using Leftovers from Patchwork Times by Judy Laquidara

I’ve been trying to make a real effort to use leftovers. The sooner I use them, the better the chance they won’t get left in the fridge and then thrown out because they’re too old to use. Tuesday afternoon we grilled portobello mushrooms and served them with caramelized onions, cherry tomato halves and a bit...

Dinner Tonight from Patchwork Times by Judy Laquidara

The Caesar Egg Salad Lettuce Wraps were amazing. I would suggest they’re more of a lunch/brunch type item. It’s cold. It’s crispy (I used the outer leaves of a head of iceberg lettuce). I’m thinking when we’re traveling, the egg salad would be great to take, along with some washed and ready lettuce leaves. That...

Menu Plan – Week of July 22 from Patchwork Times by Judy Laquidara

As promised, here’s the menu plan for next week. Monday – Saturday. It’s hot and we have some activities going on here that may mean the electricity will be off and on a few times on at least one day so I’ve planned cool, easy to fix and easy to clean up after meals. I...

Buffalo Chicken Keto Cauliflower Mac & Cheese from Patchwork Times by Judy Laquidara

Tonight’s dinner was Buffalo Chicken Keto Cauliflower Mac & Cheese. A couple of times I’ve substituted cauliflower for potatoes in dishes and they were ok . . not something that left me wanting to make the dish again real soon. I think it’s harder when you’re trying to imitate. Cauliflower in place of potatoes or...

The Asian Meatball Report from Patchwork Times by Judy Laquidara

They were delicious! I used the Asian Chicken Meatball recipe from Peace, Love and Low Carb. I followed the recipe exactly except I used one pound of ground turkey instead of two pounds of ground chicken (because Aldi had ground turkey and no ground chicken) so I used half as much of everything else. We...
