Instead I stayed at home, futzed around with different stuff on the internets, started a piece on Libertarians which I decided to let simmer a while instead, and eventually decided to make chili, since I hadn't had that variety of comfort food in a while. No beans, of course; I'm too lazy to fix them from scratch, and the canned beans all have sugar added. It turned out okay, and the low-carb tortillas from La Banderita were excellent stand-ins for their usual soft versions, which have five times the carbs of their low-carb version. Add in Harris-Teeter's 4-cheese Mexican blend shredded cheese and a couple slices avocado, and the result was tasty goodness without bending or breaking the diet. I also made the We All Scream for Ice Cream recommended on the Something Awful low-carb megathread yesterday. Even though I screwed up by using whipping cream instead of heavy cream (they're not the same! Who knew?) it turned out well, just had more carbs in it than I wanted.
Going to go to bed early tonight, since I want to eat breakfast & leave early so I can arrive on time for mass at Holy Trinity, which is on the other side of DC. :(
