Santa Fe Fajita Stuff and Red Lobster Cheesy Garlic Biscuits

I’m now on day 3 of having less than 20 carbohydrates per day.  Traditionally, this is the worst day for me.  Carb withdrawal can be vicious.  I normally imagine myself breaking someone’s neck (international secret spy method, of course) for a warm roll.  My mood is bad.  The only joy I can muster today is yelling obscenities at the television when something else comes on about the damn upcoming royal wedding. 
Speaking of international spies, we went to see the movie Hannah last night.  All I know about that movie was it wasn’t very good.  There just seemed to be a lot of running, bad accents and Cate Blanchett scrubbing her gums to bleeding.  Additionally, during the movie all I heard was the crunching of carb riddled popcorn.  It seemed everyone, but me, had a jumbo bucket of popcorn. It was more tortuous then the endless running in the movie.  It was like a full-on crunching carb attack. Bad accent, crunch, crunch.  Running, crunch, crunch.  Gum bleeding, crunch, crunch.  Ugh it was horrible. 

Clearly, I won’t be having popcorn today.  The first recipe is what I will be making for dinner.  The next recipe is what I will imagine I am eating for dinner.

Santa Fe Fajita Stuff

A tablespoon or so of canola oil
Clove or so of garlic, minced
Handful of Tyson Grilled and Ready fully cooked chicken breast strips
Handful of yellow onion, peeled and sliced
Handful of red bell pepper, seeded and sliced
Handful of green bell pepper, seeded and sliced
Large spoonful of Philadelphia Cooking Crème Santa Fe Blend
Large Spoonful of salsa
Handful of shredded cheddar cheese

Heat the oil in heavy skillet; add the garlic and onions and sauté over high heat for 2 minutes or so.  Add the bell peppers and chicken; cook over high heat for 4 minutes or so (until peppers have begun to have a blackened look around the edges).  Reduce heat and add Philadelphia Cooking Crème and salsa, heat for about 2 minutes.  Remove from heat, plate, throw some cheese on top and serve.
