Ghoulishly Grisly Low Carb Halloween Budget Meals

 Polish Sausage with Cabbage, Caraway and Apple and Oven Roasted Chicken Nuggets are Low Carb
but just don't sound as scary as Guts 'N' Worms or Monster Claws!

Happy Low Carb Halloweeny!

Remember the old joke, "What's worse than finding a worm in an apple?"


Ok, humor me here. Admittedly the two meals I made for the CarbSmart Budget Low Carb Cooking article this month sound a lot scarier than they look!

The Budget Low Carb Cooking October article impressed the "boys". The re-naming really helped present my case because they thought the scary named dishes tasted way better than the counterparts with plain ol' boring names.

For some reason I have a tough time getting them to eat cooked cabbage but dangit! They will eat those grisly worms like nobody's beeswax - slurping and drooling and trying to gross everyone at the table right off their feed! Especially if I tell them they better not eat 'em!

*scary* Ghoulishly Grisly Guts and Worms *eek!*
*not-so-scary* (aka Polish Sausage with Cabbage, Apples, and Caraway Seeds) *no eeks*

*scary* Monster Claws *eek!*
*not-so-scary* (Coconut Crusted, Oven-Baked Chicken Fingers with Spicy Asian Apricot Mustard Dipping Sauce) *no eeks, but at least the boys will eat these under the boring name*

The Budget Low Carb Cooking recipes are available now. And get ready, cuz there's gonna be a bonus recipe in honor of Halloweeny!
