Sometimes You Need A Hot, Satisfying Dinner, Darn It!

This is what I reach for when I'm craving "comfort food," now that I'm having to eat the low-carb way due to hypoglycemia.

I always make sure I have a variety of bags of frozen veggies handy, and I always keep cheese on hand... so this is a quick, easy comfort food fix that takes about 5 minutes to make!

Hope you'll enjoy my easy recipe as much as I do.

      Quite a lot of the time its mostly or all veggie, though I do enjoy meat.

      I mean what harm can it do? By the contrary it is full of vitamins and so on ... so yes, sometimes I do eat such a dinner!

    • emmajowebster 4 years ago

      Absolutely!!!!

    • miaponzo 4 years ago

      Not very often... I'm definitely a meat eater :) But I did eat a natural peanut butter on multigrain bread with fruit only jam last night... does that count?

        I need a lot of protein on a regular basis...

        Unfortunately it is not really my thing, but I think it is the way to go. My mother used to eat this way. I think a lot has to do with whether or not you have vegetables from the garden.

          Hello sheilaschnauzies, You have a great lens! Simple but interesting recipe.

          I have set up a brand new lens which tells you the basic core ingredients for different cooking styles, ie, Southern, Indian, Spanish etc. I have personally chosen you as one of the contenders in a little competition Im doing. Under each list is a poll asking if you can think of recipes and dishes to create, using some of the ingredients, plus others of your own ingredients, ie meat, fish pasta etc. There are different tasks for each section, ie a Vegetarian Chinese recipe, or a Chicken Curry recipe etc.

          You can then put your recipe name in the voting poll further down with a link to the recipe (which might be on your lens) creating more traffic for you. Once I have received the first 10 links and recipes I will start a 15 day countdown. The top 3 voted for recipes at the end of this period will be placed as a permanent link on my Lens.

          I have posted the first link Gordan Ramsays Chicken Curry, lets see if the public like one of your recipes more than his.

          I do hope you would like to participate in my little competition. The Squidoo lens is https://hubpages.com/food/essential-kitchen-food-i...
