The low blood sugar made me do it!

I am in line at the grocery store, and I can feel my blood sugar REALLY start to drop.  As Hannah and I were taking the groceries to the car, I saw Arby’s and the decision was made!

 And then I also got these:

Crunchy deliciousness - and they had cheese in the middle!

I even ate about 10 of Tony’s fries on the way home, and I checked my blood sugar when I got home, it was UP to 53!  So I decided to forgo my lunchtime insulin. 

So our salsa turned out just okay.  The tomatoes weren’t as flavorful as we normally get in the summer, and I didn’t get a good char this time the tomatoes were so juicy.   And I accidentally erased my grill pics!  Rats!   But here’s what I can show you:


I blended this in two batches:  tomatoes, jalapeno(s) to taste, lime juice, salt, whole garlic cloves.

I wished they had turned out like this:

This pic was from September.  But I have an idea.  I am going to char two whole tomatoes and garlic under my broiler and see if I can get the smokey flavor that’s missing.  Hannah liked how the lime looked after she squeezed it to death!

It almost looks fuzzy!

So we’ve spent the last 45 minutes straightening up.  My Mom is coming over for dinner!   I try to make her meals that she wouldn’t normally fix for herself and she went through my blog and picked 5 choices, but I settled on one recipe because sirloin tip roasts were on sale for $2.98 a pound!   So on the menu is Classic Roast Beef and Gravy, Buttermilk Garlic Mashed Potatoes and Paremesan Zucchini. 

We are going to go to the high school’s yearly musical tonight as well.  And since my Mom lives an hour away she’s going to sleep over too.  Should be  a fun night!

My friend Helen across the pond  gave me a blog award! 


Wasn’t that sweet of her??!!  I’ll have to put my thinking cap on to see who I will pass this to.  Thanks Helen!

Not sure when the next post will be, but check back tonight for my BSI recipe – I think you’ll soon be making your own!
