A meal only a LOSER could love!

For my son Joshua's 21st birthday, he requested LOW CARB for his dinner party. Seems everyone's on a diet these days, so I was happy to comply! We had 3 cooks in the kitchen today (4 - if you count Joshua peeling the boiled eggs, and helping with the preparations...)

We whipped up a lowcarb meal of fried sirloin steak, Parmesan chicken wings, buffalo hot wings, and a chef salad of lettuce, cabbage, grated carrots, grated cheddar cheese, Feta cheese, chopped red onions, radishes, fresh spinach, boiled eggs, fried turkey bacon, and ranch!
For dessert, I made a blueberry cheesecake - Lowcarb, using the natural herb Stevia for sweetener. YUM!


Blueberry Cheesecake

INGREDIENTS:
1 pkg unflavored gelatin
1 cup of boiling water
16 oz cream cheese (room temperature)
1 tsp vanilla
1/2 tsp Stevia concentrate powder

TOPPING:
1/2 tsp Stevia concentrate powder
1/8 tsp salt
1 1/2 tablespoon cornstarch
1/2 cup water
2 cups blueberries
1 tablespoon lemon juice
1/2 tablespoon butter

INSTRUCTIONS: Dissolve gelatin in boiling water, add cream cheese and vanilla. Beat well. Add Stevia and continue to beat. Place into dessert dish or cake pan. Cool for one hour in the refrigerator.

TOPPING: Mix Stevia, salt and cornstarch in a saucepan. Place on medium heat and add water, stir until thickens. Add blueberries, lemon juice and butter. Continue to stir as it thickens. Remove from heat, cool, serve over cheesecake base.
