My first day cooking no-salt, no-sugar....well, whaddya know.....

Because of some medical issues at our house, we're under strict orders for no-salt, no sugar for the next month or so....and we were having company -- a challenge! Note that nobody in the house is diabetic, it's so that everything plays nice with the meds for a while -- so there's no blood testing or anything along that line.

I wasn't too fussed about it, as I use very little salt anyway -- and at the table? I dropped and broke the salt shaker about 6 weeks ago and nobody's asked for it yet.

So I roasted a saddle of lamb with lots of garlic, rosemary, and pepper, all muddled together with a mortar and pestle.

Ratatouille - pepper, basil, and Herbes de Provence

A tricolor rice blend (this one was a little wobbly, but quite edible with no salt)'

cheese (a bite or two, as one of the cheese was *very* salty to the non-diet folks)
Bread

And sliced fresh strawberries (which are on the allowed list)

You know what? Other than the rice...I didn't even notice that there was no salt added to any of it.

There's another few weeks to go...so I'm sure there will be some real clunkers appearing on the table...but the first night was a genuine success!
