Shishkabobs!

This one is so easy it's stupid. It just takes a little prep.

Ingredients:
6 chicken breasts
1 bag large shrimp (cooked)
1 green pepper
1 red pepper
1/2 purple onion
1 package thick sliced mushrooms (or slice your own)
Olive oil to taste
Soy sauce to taste
1 tablespoon ground oregano

Cut the chicken into pieces, marinate in olive oil, soy sauce and oregano. Put in the fridge for at least three hours. Do the same thing for the frozen shrimp, though you might want to thaw them in cold water for half an hour first.

Marinate the skewers! I forgot is part and ended up with slightly smoked kabobs :)

Cut the veggies into whatever size pieces you like, then marinate them as well.

Throw some lard or other oil into a wok, and cook the chicken pieces until mostly done.

Assemble the skewers! There's enough veggies to alternate meat, veg, meat, veg, etc...

Toss on the BBQ for 10 to 15 minutes. Depending on the size of your BBQ this might two batches...

We were very, very surprised at how delicious these were. 5 stars.

Low Carb Cheesecake

3 packages (1 and 1/2 lbs) cream cheese (room temperature)
4 eggs (preferably room temperature)
1 and 1/2 teaspoon vanilla
1 and 1/2 teaspoon lemon juice
1 and 1/3 cups Splenda
1/4 cup sour cream

Crust:
1 cup almond meal
2 Tablespoon melted butter
2 Tablespoon sugar equivalent in artificial sweetener
Preparation:

Heat oven to 375 F.

Combine ingredients for crust, and press into the bottom of a springform pan. Bake for 8 to 10 minutes, until fragrant and beginning to brown.

Raise oven heat to 400 F.

Put cream cheese in mixing bowl, and beat until fluffy. Add other ingredients, scraping the bowl and beaters each time (this is very important), fully incorporating each ingredient. When all ingredients are combined, scrape one more time, beat one more minute, and pour mixture into pan over crust.

Put the cheesecake on a sheet pan in case of drippage. After putting the cheesecake in the oven at 400 F, turn the oven down to 200 F. Bake for 60 to 90 minutes, checking often after an hour. When the cake is firm to touch but slightly soft in the center, or the center reaches 155 F, remove from oven.

Lets kill cancer!

Say what you will about this appearing on The 600 Club, but the science behind it is solid. How do you kill cancer? STOP EATING CARBS! I'm so sick (pun intended) of seeing friends, family and acquaintances suffer from this modern plague. The drug companies can kiss my ars.
