low carb dried cranberries and chicken salad

December 2nd, 2011 at 01:01 pm

Before Thanksgiving I got two sacks of cranberries on a BOGO sale. Cranberries are a low carb fruit that I can have as long as I don't have sugar in them. I decided to try drying one sack using Splenda instead of sugar. It was super easy and worked great. Just 1/2 c splenda dissolved in water. Heat cranberries and sugar water in pan until cranberries pop. Spread on cookie sheet on silicone baking mat and bake for about 8 hours at 150 degrees.

I made a chicken salad today using the dried cranberries. Leftover roasted chicken, celery, walnuts, hard-boiled egg and dried cranberries mixed with mayonaise. It was very good.

I cashed in 20 Discover card points for a $25 gift card to Staples.

Christmas ended up costing $498+ this year. I'm not planning to buy anything else unless it's free.

I got 3 bottles of KC Masterpiece BBQ sauce at Safeway today. I'll donate all of them.

I finished reading the library book Foundation by Mercedes Lackey. Sci/Fi - good.

    I didn't even realise that cranberries were low carb, Im going to have to check this out as I have been avoiding all fruit [execpt advocado]

    all berries and cherries are relatively low carb - can't have a ton of them, but can have some. Cherries are about 1 carb each, so I usually only have 8 - 10 at a time.
