    so thought this would be a good thread for posting food / pics of things we can impress our non low carb friends with .
    had my 2nd dinner party last night and served jims curry with prawns , double thumbs up they were fighting over the last of it:D and made butter chicken which was lovely too , they had rice and i had cauli rice which they were actually eyeballing wanting to try it . made some low carb starters which i thought looked pretty so took pic ( they are mozzarella with little tomato , basil and we head garlic and chilli oil to drizzle, smoked salmon and phili roll ups and cheese and pate bites).


    [​IMG]
    last time i made pizza with ceasar salad , should have took pic then too looked (and tasted) great.anyway just thought any ideas we could get from eachother would make us less fearfull of enetertaining our friends / loved ones ....

    Don't forget me either next time Sukie! I've not done any dinner parties for a long time (single and all that jazz - plus I have no friends LOL) If I did though, I think I would do scallops and garlic as a starter, steak and mushrooms with curried spinach (tastes lovely, think lamb saag) over the top, fried courgettes as a side. For desserts, well it has to be sugar free jelly, and diabetic choccy mints, Irish coffee with whisky and cream. Hungry now!

    Looks and sounds fantastic Sukie.

    I'd love to come but it's a bloody long drive to Whitehaven. I know this from having had a customer there when I worked for Sanderson Solutions!
