So, when will we have the new server so I can upload again?
You can probably upload now, if the images were smaller. It might be the settings on whatever device you are using to take the pics. … So whether phone, digital camera, etc. Check your settings and just reduce the image size. You can manipulate images on a computer, if you have a program to do this. Or simply open the image on the computer, reduce the size down some and shoot a screenshot. (But this would be for images you’ve already taken of course, and this would not be needed for any new images once image file size has been reduced on the device.) - The sizing option on this site, has nothing to do with the image size itself, but reflects the size it’s viewed by others once loaded. So it’s the initial image size it was saved as that the computer is not allowing the upload, if that makes sense.
This was last night’s dinner: Grass fed smoked beef Sausage w/ roasted peppers and onions. Dipped in brown mustard. Air fried Cauliflower ‘Tots’ with spicy mayo. Dessert was no-churn strawberry ice cream and sugar free chocolate syrup with some brownie brittle sprinkled in.
For the most part I’ve adapted to eating keto/low carb. I find the foods to be not very different than what I used to it, e.g. veggies, meat, dairy. I’ve tried hard to recreate those items that are missing with this WOE, like the ice cream, syrup, etc. But I’m getting a bit annoyed (?) with DH’s comments that the regular version is better. He eats pretty much everything I fix, but will often fill in with carb types of food. Sigh.
Always a favorite
Brunch was egg salad on homemade keto bread, and homemade Greek yogurt with organic strawberries, homemade keto blueberry syrup and homemade keto granola. Granola was made with toasted coconut, seeds, and nuts.
Dining in (yay!) at a new Mexican restaurant in Searcy called Guacamole’s.
Spied a dish on their extensive menu called Diet Avocado. Avocado with bacon, cheese and fajita steak. TOTALLY keto! Didn’t come with rice or beans
I do understand how it works - but have no idea how to adjust picture size on my camera. I can reduce picture size using paint, but that is time consuming. Maybe there is a mod for the forum that downsizes images automatically? I am not familiar with the message board program you are using.
this is what I eat (without) bacon I guess, when I eat at a mexican restaurant but I have to combine things and ask that the beans and rice be held.
Baked pork chops topped with Rao’s marinara & mozzarella
That looks fantastic
Thanks Ashley! … Just finished loading up the recipe in my Recipe Thread. … Recipe
I really like the way it came out, and it was quite tasty indeed.
Easy Microwaved Cheese Sauce!
Wow! I am in awe.
I had read about sodium citrate, but had never really thought it was so easy to make a cheese sauce with it. I am wrong. I finally ordered some from Amazon. It came Friday and I immediately tried it. Wow. I did a half-batch of this recipe:
- 1+1/8 cup of water
- 11 grams sodium citrate
- 4 cups of cheese
So I did just over a half-cup of water, 5 grams of sodium citrate, and an 8-ounce bag of shredded Mexican cheese. I did it in the microwave by pulse cooking it – nuke for 60 seconds, whisk, nuke for 30 seconds, whisk, and repeat until it’s nice and creamy.
A luxurious cheese sauce in just minutes! And just imagine all the variations that can be done with different cheeses and spices!
I put most of the batch into a storage container, and it firmed up a bit in the fridge. Less firm than a block of Velveeta cheese, but probably still sliceable, but a bit sticky. Later, when I spooned out a few portions into a silicone baking cup to reheat in the microwave, it left indentations where I spooned it out. But later, it was back to a smooth surface in the container.
I’ve had it on nacho chips (made with Joseph’s Lavash Bread) and scrambled eggs. Delicious! And so much better than just melting shredded cheese on them, because the cheese stays nice and runny.
Our local Albertson’s had cheese on sale this weekend, so I bought five 8-ounce bags of finely shredded sharp cheddar for $1 per bag.
Tonight’s dinner was 100% grass fed Beef patties with spicy mayo, lettuce, tomato, red onion, and pickles. The buns were homemade and I thought they turned out pretty decent. Served with chipotle coleslaw.
