A lot of what I cook for the family I cannot eat due to the sodium content [raise your hand if you are tired of this subject ::Skippy waving frantically::] and usually I end up with a meal made off of the ingredients from their meal but with less/no sodium.
For example: Last night I made Wallene's all time favorite Chicken Pot Pie - but even with low salt chicken broth it still is too high for me to even have a little piece - I would have to not have any sodium all day to swing it. So I had boneless, skinless chicken breast shredded with steamed mixed veggies and boiled potatoes.
Yeah, kind of not the same.
The kids really liked it and were great with their thanks, etc. But Pooldad? He was just a bit too effusive. I mean everyone loves kudos and I really do, especially when it comes to my cooking - but, uh...um....
Telling me "That was the BEST pot pie you have ever made. Boy Skippy you really outdid yourself this time." just really kills me. I know he meant well - but when I step on the scale and weigh this:
Dude, I don't really care how good YOUR dinner was. I know it was good. I made it. But I am starving and not just for calories.
Taste. Taste would be a good thing.
PS - I am not complaining, honest - I get to eat a lot of ice cream and cookies! Chocolate is amazingly low in sodium -go figure- lol - but do you all have any good tasting, low sodium recipes? I am tired of the same ol' stuff and I am in a rut. Help me!
