Here at the end of my first year of keto, Christmas has been so good. I hope yours was beautiful too.
This was dinner for us. Ham, green beans, cauli-fried rice this time with Mark’s favorite rotel & taco seasoning seasoning, and salad. But of course, Christmas eating is mostly about the deserts, right?
Meringues, which are supposed to be white, but I left them in too long and they browned. Still, they’re light as a feather and melt in your mouth. They’re made of egg whites and Swerve with a squirt of lemon juice so they’re extremely low carb. For next time, I’ve made a little note to myself to check on them every 15 minutes and pull them out before they brown.
Cheesecake, which is our go-to keto desert for any special occasion. And then a little scoop of death-by-chocolate ice cream. I still don’t have quite the technique for ice cream down, but this one came out pretty good. I did use the vodka to make it less icy. It needs to stand at room temperature a few minutes before scooping.
Whew! We were full to the brim. Christmas is continuing at our house this week. Betsy & Kyle will be here tomorrow with their parents and we’re so looking forward to seeing them.
All the merriest to you and yours this Christmas season!
