... my second low carb Christmas! Are the holidays a happy time for you? This past Thursday we went to a "Holiday Sing". A 5 year old girl we're very fond of was taking part in it. It was a wonderful reminder of what the holidays can be. A sea of bright, smiling faces filled the church stage with yuletide glee. The kids were all singing and using sign language in the performance. All types of songs were performed - Christian, Jewish and non-religious tunes. It was pretty special.
We're not really exchanging many physical gifts this year. At least that's the plan in our family. But I do have a treat to share with you all. My lovely wife, who's recently crossed the "15 lb weight loss mark", came up with this one: Low Carb Peanut Butter and Jelly Cookies!
This is the brand of LC (xylitol-sweetened) fruit preserves we've been using: Nature's Hollow
Just add a dollop of any flavor of LC jam or jelly you enjoy on top of the cookie and starting chewing! We've tried their apricot and wild blueberry jams and also their Sugar Free Maple Syrup. Very tasty. :-)
To all that stop by ... I wish you and yours a blessed, healthy and joyful holiday season and a great start to 2010. 2010?! Crazy.
