Kitty Update

It's been more than two weeks since Fishtail and Rusty Rose came home with us. In that time, Fishy has been allowed free access to the entire house, has had his sleeping quarters moved from a little bedroom to the laundry room, to the upper level of the house -- or wherever he wants to sleep. He developed a kitty cold, which I had to treat with an antibiotic/antiviral cocktail that I had to give him through an oral syringe (0.6cc/day for 7 days -- ARGH!). He met my brothers, sister-in-law, and…See More

Diabetic Told To Shoot Self!

The New York Daily News is reporting that a female McDonald's employee with diabetes was told by her boss that if she left work after having what was described as a "severe diabetic episode", that he would shot her.This is not a novice employee: The newspaper reports that she has worked for McDonalds for nine years. So, she knows…See More

What I've Been Doing

Posted on March 4, 2014 at 5:48pm 17 Comments

If you check out my photos, you'll see a couple of them include a very special cat, Samantha. She was a fantastic companion, a cat who was a hero, who acted like a mother cat to her humans, but who never forgot to play. She died of kidney failure a few years ago, and we've been without a cat since. Over the past few months, we've been considering getting another cat, and over the past few weeks, we decided to fill that empty space and we started seriously looking through the shelter listings…

Saturday Breakfast: Silver Dollar Chocolate Chip Pancakes!

Posted on February 1, 2014 at 4:05pm 8 Comments

After a diabetes diagnosis, breakfast can become a frustrating affair. Following the Atkins plan? Plan on giving up your cereal, toast, muffins, most fruits, and even your coffee. Following a low-fat plan? Well, again, plan on giving up most breakfast fare. After my diagnosis, I insisted on a very low-fat meal plan, one which had 20% calories or less per day from fat. So breakfast was often dry toast or bland cereal. BORING. How many times can you eat the same puffed rice cereal before you…

Tonight's Dinner: Braised Beef Over Butternut Squash Polenta

Posted on January 30, 2014 at 6:30pm 2 Comments

Eating the same foods over and over again can get pretty boring. Lately, we've been going through a bit of a boring stretch with food, sticking with favorite old standbys. And it shows. I have gotten bored with eating. So today, I decided to make something different, something I haven't had in a long while: Braised Beef over Butternut Squash Polenta, a recipe I found in Diabetic Living magazine.

The recipe:

2 pounds boneless beef chuck

4 teaspoons olive oil

2 stalks…

Tonight's Dinner:

Posted on January 23, 2014 at 1:00pm 4 Comments

When I was growing up, one of our favorite dinners was a pork roast cooked in a slow cooker. Made with garlic, onions, peppers, tomatoes, and Italian sausage, it was a dinner that was tasty, but also tended to be high in fat from the roast (into which went the slivers of garlic) and the sausage. At that time, no one really thought about the amount of fat we were consuming, even someone like myself, who was continually on a diet to try to shed the excess weight I was carrying. Still, it's a…
