Barb, the only one that told me anything, was the woman at the dr. office; called and said... watch your carbs and take two pills a day. I will call in your scrips today.
Period.

I sort of knew that no more cookies and chips and pretzels and sandwiches, or toast and peanut butter late at night . No more 3 burgers at a sitting, and no more three dishes of spaghetti.
I had cut that out, but like last night, I had to have one cake doughnut. Usually I would eat a plain; a cinnamon, and a powdered one, and maybe one more.
I don't do that anymore. pale

That happened to me to. No one told me squat. I went to D forums and learned so much. I was taking the wrong wrong medicine . Dangerous life altering drug. I stopped that really fast. I just did not know better. My feelings for the doctor went out the window.

My nephew is having a semi annual party that he usually calls Bacon N Bourbon but this time he is calling is Scotch and Swine. I am taking some bacon sushi. Its bratwurst with pineapple flavor, cheese that tastes a lot like Mozzarella and roasted green pepper rolled inside a bacon wrap and smoked for 2 hours. I made it yesterday and will re heat it just before we leave.

Tonight is a meal I've been thinking about for months!

(Tina's) Braised potatoes w/onions & peppers and sausages w/grapes, finished with a splash of basalmic vinegar.

I sure hope it's as good in real life as I have imagined it to me in my mind.......

Sounds superb to me Beth...

I don't know what?? to make for dinner tonight. The Girls ? Tina , Maria , Sherrie, ar at a (ready for this? ) Double Baby Shower down at a Firehouse someplace in Jersey .... Yep! ... Sisters Having a baby shower together. Double the Gifts.... Cards and the ( Boring to Me ) opening the gifts with thousands of clothes for infants and up to size 3 I guess? ....

Just from what I watched them pack in the car, was enough to fill the racks in Babies are Us with all the clothes and diapers. OMG. Seriously, I said,"How does a baby get to wear all those clothes. ?? By the time the child is 2, there would only have been 1/3 of them worn. Good Golly Miss Molly!
I'm hoping Mommy T or DD Maria packs me a few Italian Specialties to eat for My Supper. I should have told them to bring their big Purses! LOL... Fill Them Up!

Bourbon will be just fine. Charlie is bringing some Irish whiskey. He is going to try a Korean recipe for pork belly too. Last year Cassie made some bacon chocolate chip cookies.

" bacon chocolate chip cookies "

sounds good to me! I've been thinking about some chocolate covered potato chips with a sprinkling of bacon......

Now, THAT sounds fabulous!

((smash 'em on my rear end and wrap me in Saran Wrap!))

O * M * G !!!!!

Barb, you were right on with your suggestion of sausages w/grapes.....Mr. Amazing couldn't have been more pleased.  What a simple, fabulous meal.  How can something so easy taste so good?

I ended up picking up some 'bangers' at Fresh Market.  The meat market guy said they were wonderful ~ great for breakfast, for lunch on a bun or how ever you wanted to make them....mild pork sausage with leek, I think he said.  A Johnsonville brat would do just as well.  The original recipe calls for Italian Sweet Sausage, but we don't care for the fennel so I looked for an alternative.

I browned the sausages and then added a bunch of red & green grapes to the pan.  Into a 350° oven for 25 minutes to continue to cook the sausage.  Took the sausages out of the pan and put the skillet on the stovetop to cook down the grapes to a syrup-y goodness, adding just a tiny splash of basalmic vinegar (probably 1 Tbsp.).  When the grapes were starting to break down (they lost all their color so if you only get red OR green, makes no difference) I emptied them over the sausages in the serving dish.

The taste was so good.  The bit of salty-ness of the sausages with the sweetness of the grapes.  YUM!

And the potatoes were a perfect accompaniment ~ quartered yukon golds, browned in a bit of evoo, then a whole onion cut into 8ths and 4 Hatch chiles added to the CI skillet with some chicken broth to simmer slowly until everything was soft.  Last 15 minutes I increased the heat and removed the lid so the liquid would evaporate.  Tina sure taught me well!



Oh, just one note ~ be sure to put a pot holder over the handle of the skillet when you remove the sausages & grapes from the oven.  My left hand is still throbbing.....

The sausages were good sized....we each only ate one.

Tomorrow for lunch there's going to be a fight to see who gets the leftovers!

((Maybe I'll have 'em for breakfast.....)) LOL

Have you noticed if any weight has come off since you have changed your eating?

Tomato, Fig, Feta Salad w/Basalmic Dressing?

That's my guess.....

((how'd I do?))

Those tomatoes are, to say the least, a treasure to begin with!

Yes, it's got an almost 'fruity' taste, at least the one I have. Good stuff.

We had a cafeteria type dinner tonight. Herbed rotisserie chicken, Stove Top cornbread dressing and instant potatoes with a jazzed up canned chicken broth gravy. My DH had seconds. Oh well, there is no accounting for taste.

For dessert we watched the eclipse of the moon. Gad! It still is in the 80's outside.
