Fun! So my decorations in general are pretty lame so far but I am really proud of this:

I knit my first xmas stocking! Up until now my knitting consisted of scarves and a couple of hats. This one is for me since I expected the first one to suck I made mine first and it actually turned out okay! I made a few mistakes but they’re probably something only I will notice. Though I will be making 1 change to the rest and that is making them a little bigger. This one is about and inch smaller than the pattern said- probably due to my knitting tension so I’m going to fix that for the rest of them :slight_smile:

Merry Christmas!

I don’t celebrate Christmas but friends and family do so I’m weaving up some candy cane kitchen towels.

I never have any decorations, not worth the hassle. Always made an effort for my son as I wanted him to have the magic of Christmas that I never had, but not worth it these days. If I did have decs I’d spend the whole time untangling cats anyway :joy:

Great idea, another thread I look forward to. My dog N=1’ed me on canine advice I was skeptical about, so what was to be a day of decorating converted to a day of cleanup.

Wow, that is lovely. Once upon a time, I corded & spun wool and did weavings. Seems like another life time ago, the 80s.

I’m decorating my house with some homemade LCHF eggnog

Love the mixer. Can not stand eggnog. Too much milk and I love my eggs cooked, not raw.

Do you use an alternative to either the milk or raw eggs?


(You cannot outrun a bad diet) #11

Sorry on the eggs, but, no, no egg alternative. I love “poofing” up the egg whites. I’m far more comfortable in the kitchen than last Advent. I used almond milk, as per the recipe.

Please send some to Baltimore :stuck_out_tongue:

I have a tradition every year of making coquito (Puerto Rican eggnog, basically). Guess I’ll have to find a way to ketofy it this year!


(You cannot outrun a bad diet) #13

Converting recipes to LCHF is a fun challenge. Shall we call yours co-keto?


(Becca) #14
  1. I didn’t even think to google Keto coquito! I guess I’m not the only PR person doing Keto :joy:

  2. Co-Keto, I love it! :joy: that’s literally the most perfect name :grin:


(#inforthelonghaul, KCKO, KCFO) #15

This one sounds better, I am also not a fan of condensed milk, but this coconut milk you condense yourself does sound like something to try. I like this recipe better than the original posted one. I try to stay away from brown colored spirits, stick to the clear ones, less carbs.

I have never made eggnog but I might give this one a try. Thanks for the postings.

Egg Nog wow

Found it!
Here’s one recipe to possibly easily convert
Use @Digital_Dave famous crust :smile:

Egg Nog Pie


#17

I actually do make an Eggnog Cheese Cake as well, but have not converted it to a Keto-Friendly version yet. … But since there’s a Keto Eggnog recipe also posted above, might have to take a look into it. :slight_smile: Thanks


(You cannot outrun a bad diet) #18

There’s no accounting for taste. I thought this looked good but my wife said; “Ewwww.” Whatever.

Watching the video I see I didn’t fold my egg whites into the nog. You can make this recipe using your own keto eggnog and this pie crust.

I’m still digging that I get power tools in the kitchen, i.e. that nice mixer in the photo.

I’ll get that right next time.

This is my son. He learned 3 Christmas songs this week so he could go busk to earn money for Christmas.

That suit will draw a crowd. It has a life of its own :christmas_tree:
