Howdy foodie friends 💞

How is Spring treating you?

We had a few amazing days of the high 70's but now are back to 60 and raining 😒

It has been driving the puppers crazy because they had those few days of being able to stay outside for just about the whole day only to be stuck inside on the sofa staring out the window at the rain falling.

My Snapchat has been full of a lot of pouty puppy pictures.

Then today I woke up with one heck of a sore throat.

I went over to visit the kids and the G-baby Sunday and they were all fighting of a cold. I crossed my fingers because I have been pretty lucky this year about NOT getting sick.

No such luck this time.

This morning I have the whole headache/sore throat/yucky sinus party going on 😔

I had grocery shopping, cooking, photos, the whole shebang planned for the next couple of days but I think it is going to be more like tea, kleenex, and Nyquil on the schedule now.

Luckily my tummy isn't involved in this whole situation so comfort food like this Low-Carb Italian Beef Bake is still on the menu for lunch.

Oh, I love leftovers!!

As you can see from the photos, the hardest part about this dish is layering everything.

Seriously, that is it.

Of course, I took a little help from Birdseye with the cauliflower rice. This isn't a sponsor dealio, this is just me trying just about every brand of frozen cauliflower rice out there and being wickedly disappointed with them all, except Birdseye.

Don't get me wrong, my homemade Garlic Herb Cauliflower Rice is amazeballs, and not that difficult to make but, when you are in a huge hurry or planning a lot of cauliflower rice recipes in one week, it is nice to know that there is a brand that I can grab and know that everyone will enjoy it.

If you decide to make my homemade cauliflower rice, one batch equals the 2 bags of frozen that this recipe calls for.

Also, if you are keto, or trying to stay as low-carb as possible, try to use the block mozzarella cheese and grate it yourself.

That is the same with any shredded cheese in a low-carb recipe.

The companies that produce the pre-shredded cheese use different kinds of starches to coat the cheese shreds and keep them from clumping in the bag. That adds carbs to the dish.

So if you are strict, shred shred shred yourself!
