Low carb lasagna recipe

do you roast the eggplant slices first, so the water evaporates before layering it?

they also have the 2 soups and app bar on weekends, plus frequently do a groupon or other deal, if you'd like to try it.

substitute for soy sauce

they are noticeably sweet for me so depending on what i'm making, i may do a 50/50 of coconut aminos and fish sauce.

some fish sauces have sugar or other additives, so here's one that doesn't (and is paelo friendly if you're into that):

i go to the lakeline location a bit. the quality of the meat is a bit better than the place over in RR i frequent, but i'm not in love with their broth.

sad about the fire.

Low carb pancakes, outstanding!

recently made low carb pancakes with cream cheese and eggs (and spices) and they are GREAT! i was getting so sick of frittata type stuff for breakfast.

i under-cooked them a bit so i could heat them up in a pan each weekday morning before going into the office. did the same with bacon and cook that first so the residual grease helps with the pancakes.

yeah, there's a few different flavors here, but all of the ones i've found have MSG, which gives me headaches :-(

Pâté

noble sandwich company (at least the 620 location) has various seasonal pates, with a gelee on top, in mason jars. i think the last one i got was $6? it was super tasty.

i just made marcella hazan's tomato onion butter sauce, and then threw in a bunch of veg, and some leftover boursin. tastes great!

i bought some recently, too. right now they're sitting in the fridge because i made a spaghetti squash dish for the week. not sure what i'll make with them yet. it's the fetuccini style.

oooo, that sounds pretty dina-safe, as long as there's no soy sauce or malt vinegar in a marinade.

i'm also game, and willing to take a risk.

i really like carbonara with my spaghetti squash.

another thing i like to do with it is marcella hazan's tomato onion butter sauce. i decrease the butter, add a few glugs of balsamic, and leave the onion in for much longer at a whole heat.

then i'll throw in whatever leftover veggies i have on hand-- mushrooms, spinach, etc. you can use leftover protein too (or play around with the cheese ratio if you are vegetarian).

i would love to go! but i am one of those annoying people who can't have gluten, and i live in 78729 and don't get out of work until after 6.

so that said, depending on what everyone decides, i'm game!

Object: Fantastic dinner for 2 under $30.00

what do you get there? i've lived in the nabe for years and haven't tried it yet, probably because it's in a very un-restaurant-y area.
