Russia.
Beef stewed with vegetables.
A small piece of peace-trading beef.
Vegetables: sweet Bulgarian pepper, onions, carrots.
Four hours of preparation, and the most gentle, soft, delicious, juicy and aromatic beef is ready for consumption. The dish is prepared without adding any oil.

Tonight I made a keto pizza. No picture, so you'll need to use your minds eye.

Wheat flour isn't keto, but cheese is, so I took some shredded domestic provolone and put it in a hot frying pan to begin to form the crust. Then spread an herby tom' sauce on it that I had previously made. After it had some time to warm, more cheese and thin sliced pepperoni. Still in the pan it went into a 450°F oven to melt the cheese and warm the sausage. I miss yeast pizza dough, but it worked for me and no carbs.

Here’s why you should always grill an extra steak or two when you’ve got the grill going. Tasty pizza with tenderloin steak  Happy2

Sorry, no pictures.

Some folks know that my body is in ketosis by choice and I eat to keep it there. Basically I burn fats for fuel. If I want to go back to burning sugar I'll start to eat carbs again. So my goal is to consume things and keep carbs to a minimum. I love chocolate and I have yet to make mine without sugar carbs, but I am making hot cocoa without sugar. The carbs in my version of this hot cocoa is just what is found in the dry cocoa bean powder.

It's dead simple to make. There is a recipe that I got from the 'net, but now I just wing it.

HOT COCOA
Makes 1 serving – scale up the quantity for additional servings

2 teaspoons dutched cocoa powder ( we prefer dutched process cocoa because we feel that these cocoa powders have a deeper flavor, darker color and a smoother texture that blends flawlessly in hot beverages.)
2 teaspoons sugar (or erythritol, xylitol, monk fruit extract)
2 tablespoons cream, not heated
6 ounces boiling water
optional: a bit of xanthan gum as a thickener but it might require blending, mint extract, cinnamon

Optional: whipped cream or mini marshmallows for garnish

Place the cocoa powder and sugar into a mug and mix well. Add the cream and stir into a smooth paste. Add the boiling water and stir until the mixture is smooth and well blended. Ladle the hot cocoa into a mug and garnish if desired.

As I wrote I wing it now, measuring nothing. I put the dry ingredients in a stainless steel beaker and mix them, add the boiling water, and use the immersion blender to mix because it gets the xanthan gum smoother. I don't use sugar but one of the non-sugar sweeteners listed. I doubt that mine would be sweet enough for a child, but for an adult who is eating and liking 70%+ cocao chocolate it's delicious. I add some half and half instead of the cream, but it can be omitted entirely if one wants to allow more of the chocolate flavor through.

Well, I didn't manage to get an image of it before it was carved, but we had a roast turkey this evening. Yes, earlier than Thanksgiving, but it was on sale at the supermarket for 49 cents/lb., and we were afraid they all would be gone if we waited until the holiday. So tonight we had the drumsticks, with some stuffing, mashed orange juice sweet potatoes with walnuts, and rolls. Some of the white meat is going into lunch sandwiches over the next couple days. The rest of the turkey will go in the freezer until Thanksgiving Day.

Oy. Neither my nor I felt like cooking tonight, so she stopped on her way home from work for fast food: for each of us a double cheeseburger, onion rings, French fries, and a salted caramel milkshake. Now I ache. But I think of it as stretching my stomach out for the upcoming Thanksgiving feast...
