I visited my mom today and was qutie stressed out! But there is no better stress relief then coming home and letting Mom treat you like you are still a little kid! And she always feeds me. She made me my favorite snack and low carb too, yes Mom is a low carber as well! Ok it is called an " Eggplant Paste" She boils eggplants, whole, i think, then roasts them in the oven. Takes them out, puts them throght the meat grinder. Then she mixes the paste with tomatoes, garlic, pepper, salt and lemon and a bit of parsly. The whole paste gets dressed in a very fresh first cold pressed olive oil. Then she sautees La Tortilla wraps and somehow makes them very crunchy, that one is still a secret, i guess Mom wants me to keep coming back. Ok, here is a twist. Then she spreads the paste onto the very crunchy wrap with a little of world famous Arkhangelskya black caviar and a touch of ice cream. I just went to Heaven! Dr Mike, you should try it, to die for! I dont know if you love caviar, but I do, and know quite a lot about it. I buy it through a local store in NYC and it costs $225 a pound but boy it is good! once I treated my ex grfriend who was jamaican to a Russian sandwitch of fresh bread ( back in the days) with butter and black caviar. Check this out, she thought it wasnt enouph and spread almost the whole can of the caviar on the bread, whci cost about 75 a can. I wouldnt be mad, but then she said it is ok, nothing special, jerk chicken is better! Hah, I guess it is! And no, that is not the reason she became my ex, but memories, or memories!

I kind of started with less then desired meal and ended it with less then desired everything, including carb and calorie count. I swayed off the course and 5 plus one and only one had become less then 5 and many ones and none of them only plan! I ALSO LEARNED HOW HARD IT IS TO KEEP TRACK OF MENUS EVEY DAY, AND BE HONEST AND ACCURATE ABOUT IT! SO BACK TO THE ORIGINAL PLAN AND NO MORE TEMPTATIONS! I DID UNDERESTIMATE ALMOND BUTTER CALORIES AND GROSSLY UNDERESTIMATED MOMS EGGPLANT PASTE CALORIES, AMOUNT AND CARB COUNTS. BUT LESSON LEARNED, LESSON REPEATED AND LESSON REINFORCED!
