We had a family reunion this past Saturday and it's surprising sometimes what you can learn. I knew that my mom and her side of the family had an extensive history of diabeties, however I never new that anyone on my dad's side had it too. The dessert table brought it all out, after several mentioned they couldn't eat anything. lol..I fixed that quickly. I had pulled recipes from the files here for Buttermilk Pie and Blueberry Cheesecake. Thus, it turned into more of a headcount of who 'did not' have diabeties than those of us that do. The number was staggering and you know it made me feel not quite so alone trying to decide the right things to eat. The white potatoes were clearly left out of the stews and the bread was limited to small squares of cornbread or crackers. We had quite a bit of fresh veggies to munch on as well as pickles, cheese and condiments of that sort. Overall, it was probably the most comfortable place I've eaten lately and it's nice to know that I'm not alone and making the right food choices. Brought to mind the old saying about family…you may not be able live with them, but you can't live without them. They are a valuable commodity!
