Low Carb

Well DH and I started a Low carb diet and for the first 2 weeks we cant have any carbs or sugar or fruit. SO there isnt much interesting cooking going on right now. Ill probably be absent for another week. I just finished my first week and DH just started his first week. So far I have lost 3 pounds and DH has lost 2. So until were back to cooking here is a recipe that I am going to try sometime as soon as we are allowed a few carbs again.

Pumpkin Pie Dip

--1 cup canned pumpkin pie mix
--4 oz cream cheese
--1/4 cup sour cream
--chopped walnuts, optional

I use my Little Dipper crock pot---these measurements are perfect for a little dipper. If you don't have one, you can put an oven-safe dish inside of your large crockpot.
Add the cream cheese to the Little Dipper. Top with sour cream, then pour in the pumpkin pie filling.Cover and cook for about an hour, then stir well. If the cream cheese isn't fully melted, cook a bit longer. The Little Dipper doesn't have temperature settings, you just plug it in. If you are going to use a big crockpot with an oven-safe dish inside, cook on high for about an hour, or 2 on low.
Garnish with chopped walnuts, if desired
