I made that cauliflower pizza crust before, it's very yummy. But it is NOT low cal, it's cheese that holds it together IIRC. And kind of time consuming to make.
SIL makes mashed cauliflower sometimes. Again, also not low cal because of the cream cheese, but OMG...I love it. I've never been a fan of mashed potatoes, so I far prefer the cauliflower.
Recipe please?

I figure, I eat WAY too many carbs most days (I love toast!). I should cut significantly back and then use dining out as a chance to indulge in pasta.

Ugh. I'm at the airport in Vegas, my flight is delayed, and I'm about to keel over from exhaustion. But it was a fun & productive conference.

Thanks! That doesn't sound bad at all. I just like seeing what different people sign up for. For me the hardest part is always what to do about eating out. There are not a lot of smart choices at bars and restaurants, and some of them are not good at fielding substitutions, etc.

I think it's time to belly up to the bar and have some shots.

I will probably stick with the breakfast and lunch part even after I'm done and go back to eating normal dinners.

My 8 week completion date will be just in time for Myrtle Beach bike week in May, and I'll have all the beer I want for 4 days.

You're right. I should sit at home and drink alone like you.

Why not? afraid of being alone and saving some money? Or is it that you cant cook, your apartment is a POS and you need to be around other people to validate yourself? Newsflash sammy, if you have to buy them drinks to hang out with you, they really aint your friends.

Have you considered gluten free carbs as a bridge?. Some aren't bad- I make the when my BIL is coming to dinner
I know people who say they are gluten sensitive and so I've tasted quite a few things that are gluten free. I didn't like them.

They're not THAT bad, but that's the problem. They weren't that good, either.:)

This is the exact recipe I used for the pizza crust: http://www.eat-drink-smile.com/2011/04/caulif...

Not sure of the exact recipe SIL uses for mashed cauliflower, but this is close. Plus, add a ton of garlic. http://www.inspiredtaste.net/19731/simple-cre...

Never heard Sam complain about money, either. Maybe people buy HER drinks.(shrug)

It takes a lot of trying different stuff/products to find ones you like. It gets expensive (Nick has a friend who has some serious medical issues and gluten issues are one of them). She made brownies with a gluten-free mix and they were delicious (and I don't care much for brownies). But the mix was like $4-$5, not the cheap stuff I normally would buy.

What a sad, angry man you are. That's your answer? I socialize for validation and to avoid my dumpy condo with its empty fridge? If believing that helps you sleep at night, then you just go on believin', Grumpy.

I make mashed cauli once in a while, I roast the cauli and the garlic, then add goat cheese, butter, a little cream cheese, a little chicken stock and some parsley. It's actually really good.
