This picture was taken on our first anniversary. We celebrated with steak, baked potatoes, rolls, and salad. Oh, and of course, the top tier of our wedding cake. After a year in the freezer, it was absolutely delish. I’m not saying we didn’t have a nice time, but our low carb celebration this year was so much better.
This year we celebrated our 6th anniversary. My husband said it was the perfect meal. I don’t know about perfect, but it was a feast. The food was rich and decadent. The reward is obvious too.
When I tell people that I don’t “cheat” for special occasions, they usually seem to feel sorry for me. I try to tell them that I don’t feel deprived, but I’m not sure they believe me. However, the awesome thing about low carb is the fact that you can eat so well while improving your weight and your overall health.
This year’s menu included the following: steak and vegetables with compound garlic and herb butter, bacon and cream cheese stuffed mushrooms, and chocolate covered strawberries.
The recipe for the strawberries can be found here. The recipe for the mushrooms is coming soon.
