  Happy Thanksgiving
                          "Feeling gratitude and not expressing it
                                  is like wrapping a present and not giving it."
                                                          William Arthur Ward

If one could only learn to appreciate the little things...

   A song that takes you away;
      for there are those who cannot hear.
   The beauty of a sunset;
      for there are those who cannot see.
   The warmth and safety of your home;
       for there are those who are homeless.
   Time spent with good friends;
      for there are those who are lonely.
   A walk along the beach;
      for there are those who cannot walk.

 The little things are what life is all about.
 Search your soul and learn to appreciate...

                           Happy Thanksgiving!
                             Lora and Neil

Gourmet Cheese Crackers!

Kitchen Table Bakers
Many of us have been making "cheese chips" for a long time (melting cheese in the microwave until it gets crisp) as a low carb snack. So when I first heard about the "Gourmet Cheese Crackers" from Kitchen Table Bakers, I wondered what would make these different (or better) than the cheese crisps we could make at home. Then I got the chance to try them and I knew they were going to be a favorite!

Made from baked cheese, their varieties include Aged Parmesan, Sesame, Garlic, Italian Herb, Caraway, and Onion Poppyseed. They're perfect little cheese rounds, lacy and crisp and seasoned to perfection. All natural and handmade, these little gems come in at less than 1 net carb per 3-cracker serving and contain no transfats, preservatives, or other questionable ingredients.

Nutrition Panel But the most important thing is that they're delicious. We had a hard time testing them with the group because no one would wait long enough to put them through various serving ideas... people kept munching them as-is from the container. And I guess that illustrates their best attribute — quick delicious snacks.

Now I did try them with chicken salad heaped on a cracker, as well as crumbled over a salad. Both were terrific and I think you're only limited by your imagination with these crisps. My personal favorite was the sesame, but everyone quickly chose their own favorite. The Italian Herb was amazing with a cool sour cream dip, and the Caraway was very good with thin sliced deli meats (especially paper thin corned beef!)

As the holidays approach, don't miss your opportunity to serve these to guests and watch them disappear. They come in 3-oz clear plastic clamshell containers that protect the crackers.

They're available in health food stores, and online at CarbSmart, or at The Low Carb Connoisseur.
