Low Carbing Hostess

Low carb devil’s food cake with strawberries and whipped cream

Gee, it sure is nice visiting a sister who is on a low carb diet, too.  I never make desserts like she does.  So the devil’s food cake with strawberries and whipped cream that she fixed for us today was an absolute delight!

Ann and I went shopping today.  She bought new towels and looked for a dehydrator.  I bought fishing tackle.

I had planned to fish in Cecil’s pond.  But the fish are so tame that when we walk by the pond, they line up in the water and watch us curiously, totally without fear.  I just didn’t feel that it was sporting to fish for them, so will use my new tackle somewhere else.

Sheba was a bad dog!

Sheba dug a hole in Ann and Cecil’s yard.  So she spent much of the day in her pen with the dig-proof hardware cloth floor, only getting out for leash walks.  Traveling with her looks like it’s going to be a real challenge for a while.

We have decided that her crate takes up way too much room in the Casita.  We took it out today, and she will sleep on the floor by the door tonight.  If she makes it through the night without a potty accident, then we won’t use it in the trailer again.

The crate is way too big for the camper, so we took it out today.

If she does have an accident, then I’ll put the crate back in the trailer for the remainder of this trip, but build her a crate underneath my bed when I get back home.

I am starting to think that I was nuts to want a puppy!  🙂

    Could you fold the crate up and use it as a barrier by the door so she can only be in that small space? Just keep her area small, that should help.

    • Shelly, I’d be afraid the crate would scratch or chip the fiberglass. She makes it all night when she is in the crate, so I’m crossing my fingers it works without the crate.

  2. hmmmm.,…..i must say that, sharon, i’d have to agree with you about the puppy….you are a better woman than i for taking on that challenge!!!! and could you ask your sister if the dessert she served was made somehow different to make it low carb????
    and thanks for the crockpot pizza recipe.

    • Theresa, I wouldn’t say I was a better woman…. I’d say I had a major lapse in judgment! 😀

      The devil’s food cake doesn’t have sugar or wheat flour in it. You can find the recipe on this forum post: http://forum.lowcarber.org/showthread.php?t=153934

      Ann’s icing was actually a combination of cream cheese and cream instead of just whipped cream, as I posted.

  3. Oh, your Casita looks so lovely and inviting…bet your having fun with it !
    Just hang in there with the puppy, it will get better …..and Sheba is so cute. :))

    • Linda, we are having a ball in our Casita. We are just crazy about it!

      Thanks for the encouraging words about Sheba. She is a darling…. she is just such a PUPPY! 😀

    I could never deal with a puppy. I was so lucky when Fred found me. He was trained in so many ways. And is such a good little guy. I have had puppies befor and am not a good trainer at all. Good luck
