Ups and Downs

Well, I made it through another week!
I made a few good low carb meals this week.  The BEST was a Bacon Blue Cheese Burger on a homemade bun.  The bun recipe was from a post on Low Carb Friends.  I tweaked it some because I didn't have enough pork rinds.
 I used a serious amount of blue cheese crumbles and applewood smoked bacon.
Red Lobster Biscuits
8 ounces of cream cheese
4 large eggs
 1cups of pork rind flour
1 cup almond flour
1/2 cup Parmesan cheese
1 tsp baking powder
 1/2 cup shredded Italian cheese mix
1 cup shredded cheddar cheese
1 tsp pepper
1 tsp garlic powder
1 tsp parsley  

preheat oven to 425 degrees
bring eggs and cream cheese to room temp. mix until well blended. add the dry ingredients,spices, and cheeses to the wet mixture
and blend, mixture will be thick. grease the muffin tines and mound the mixture in (lemon size) bake at 425 for 12-15 min. remove from oven and brush with melted butter 
Enough for 12 regular sized biscuits or 4 big fat hamburger buns!

I made some Salmon the other night.  I actually bought canned green beans, usually not my favorite, but I had a tester at the store of a really good recipe!  It was smokey and very flavorful, main ingredient was Cumin.  So I made that to go with it and guess what?  I WAS OUT OF CUMIN!!!   That one little ingredient was the only reason I made them!  So, I improvised and threw some other stuff in.  Everyone liked them, but I was  bugged!
  Those are toasted pecans in the beans, FYI.

So, I got my bill from my ER visit (actually my hubby got it, and I could practically hear him screaming from here at work).  It was $1450!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Apparently it costs $850 alone to step foot in the damn place!!!!   
So, we had a very unpleasant evening...  my husband was very pissed, mostly because we were never informed that our health plan coverage had changed.  He just wouldn't let up!   We have to meet the deductible before things get cheap.  If I had known this, I seriously would have gone home and lay down instead!  Sheesh!!!

So, here is a funny video.  You can't really see this well because it  was so dark, but the sound is the important part!  My Hercules snoozing:

So Happy Friday!  I have an incredibly strong beer waiting for me!
