Back into the swing of things...MPM


Last week we FINALLY got around to trying the homemade corn dogs and the oven fried chimis. They were both very good. I was skeptical that the chimis would crisp up, but they did!! I was also too lazy to melt butter (recipe calls for margarine), so I just brushed them with peanut oil. I learned a trick while making the corn dogs. My first one looked a little funny, but I learned that if you put the corn dog in and let it cook for just a second and flip it, it keeps the batter from spreading out flat. This way you keep the corn dog looking more like a store bought one. Of course, with a deep fryer, you wouldn't have this problem.



This week I am really focusing on getting things back in order menu wise. The last three weeks have been off. On top of that, I am diabetic and have not been watching what I eat. So, I am really trying to plan better meals so that my blood sugars are in a good range.

*=new recipe

  • Monday--Smoky Appalachian chicken breasts, sauteed spinach* (for me), green beans (for the boys), baked potatoes

I just love Philly Cheesesteaks. My husband and son recently discovered them since we moved to Las Vegas. They're a nice treat.

My husband is a diabetic. And our whole family follows the diabetic guidelines. It's amazing how many tasty recipes that our out there. Did I tell you that I lost over 20 pounds following it? It's great for everyone.

The chile relleno casserole sounds pretty tasty. I find my sugar levels rise when I stop excercising. As much as I despise getting on that treadmill I know it is the best thing to fight this terrible disease. Good luck from one who knows how hard it is to keep on track.
