HOMEMADE SOUP DAY. February 4th

For most of us it’s still getting pretty cool outside. If you have snow I’m sorry…this is why we live in Florida. Before the jokes begin, we live in northwest Florida. We have a different climate than other parts of Florida. We had done and ice just several years ago.

Anyway if its cold outside a warm filling meal hits the spot. I did a take on a couple of popular recipes to make them more keto or low carb friendly. We are not strict Keto but the low carb dieting has drastically improved our type 2 Diabetes numbers. So enjoy these hearty soups that will definitely be a like a warm hug on those cold nights.

Jen’s Super Sandwhich

So, as I was trying to answer the, “What’s for dinner?” question once again. I went with a super Sandwich creation, for Super Bowl Sunday. I have to satisfy some very good sized appetites and keep them diet-friendly for low-carb, keto style. With several of us needing these requirements for our health, it makes satisfying both regular and special diets a challenge. It’s an even better one when you can satisfy both, without sacrificing taste. I’ve been told by everyone who has them they are better than the sub shops and Deli’s make. So here’s my recipe for a great sandwich.

https://www.cookscountry.com/equipment_reviews/1433-chefs-knives

Ingredients

  • 1 medium purple onion sliced thin
  • 1 green bell pepper
  • 1 lg beef steak slicing tomato
  • 1 medium head Green Leaf Lettuce
  • 1 – 16oz pkg deli-sliced turkey breast
  • 1 -16oz pkg deli-sliced black forest ham ( I like the Land O Frost Brand)
  • 8 oz extra sharp sliced cheddar cheese
  • 8 oz sliced aged swiss cheese
  • 16oz Bacon Cheddar Ranch dip
  • 12oz sliced bacon cooked extra crispy
  • Yellow mustard
  • New York-style Rye Bread Or Dark Pumpernickle or low carb alternative
  • I got 7 full-size sandwiches from 1 loaf and had meat and cheeses left over.  If your crowd is bigger plan accordingly.


Directions


  • Spread 1 tsp Bacon Cheddar Ranch dip on each slice of bread.
  • Layer on dip onion slices on one, bell pepper on the other. Sounds easy but the order is important so it doesn’t slide out of your sandwich.
  • Next comes turkey breast folded and evenly layered. (I put 4-5 on onion side to build)
  • Add 2 full slices of Swiss cheese
  • 1.5 slices of super crispy bacon
  • Thin sliced tomatoes
  • 1 slice extra sharp cheddar
  • 4-5 slices black forest ham
  • Cover with little yellow mustard
  • Add Green Leaf Lettuce
  • Top with second dip and bell pepper bread.  Cut in half to make easier to hang on to. Quarters work too, especially for made up trays.  We added whole wheat original Sunchips with a little of the dip.

    NATIONAL CROISSANT DAY – January 30


    In the United States, National Croissant Day, recognizes a wonderful flaky pastry enjoyed at every meal.  Croissants are  buttery, crescent-shaped rolls that are crispy on the outside and soft on the inside.

    The key to a perfect croissant is laminating the dough. Laminating the dough, also used in puff pastry, is a process by which butter is folded into the mixture creating multiple thin layers of butter and dough. The result is a mouth-watering flaky crust and airy body.

    Legend surrounds this pastry, as is often the case with a popular, worldly treat. What is known, is that crescent-shaped breads have been found around the world for ages. One of these was the Kipferl which originated in Austria as far back as the 13th century. This nonlaminated bread is more like a roll.

    Credit for the croissant we know today is given to an Austrian military officer, August Zang. In 1939 he opened a Viennese bakery in Paris introducing France to Viennese baking techniques.

    Make Warm Memories

    On January 7th you can remember the warm, cuddle ups from yesterday. Today you can add even more of those warm memories.  January is National Soup Month, National Slow Cooker Month, and National Sunday Supper Month.

    You can enjoy soups, stews and many other great dishes by doing some meal prep and slow cooker days. Nothing is better at the end of a long day in the cold than coming home to comfort foods like Beef Stew, Homemade Chicken Noodle Soup, Everyday Beef Stew, Beef Pepper steak, Minestrone, White Chicken Chili, and even regular Chili. Did I mention lots of these are good for game days as well.

    Best of all you can do the prep ahead of time and put it in your Crockpot. Imagine a warm hearty comfort food hot and ready to eat after a long day.
