I put a sirloin steak in the slow cooker with some Mexican seasonings, and jalapenos from last year's garden. I cut some lettuce from this year's garden and served the meat over that with a sprinkle of cheese. My intention was then to add a dollop of sour cream. It would have been a nice low carb meal. Only we didn't have sour cream.
It was still a nice low carb meal, but it was even better without the sour cream. The jalapenos were HOT. The sour cream would have blunted the heat. Instead we got the full force of it, and it was good. There was some meat left over and I will likely have it for a meal today, sans sour cream. I may skip the sour cream completely going forward. Who knows? Of course it with a couple of days age on it, it could really be hot. Then I might change my mind about not having sour cream!!!
I really am glad that something finally came up that we had to do without. That is the whole object of this little exercise. I am a little embarrassed that we are half way through the month and so far we only have lemons and sour cream MIA.
My mother and I are going out of town for a long weekend this weekend. That will leave 65MD on his own. He won't do much cooking for just himself. He'll eat at school or get something to bring home. So, I'm still thinking we'll skate through this month without any real issues.
