I just love it when someone posts something and it makes a reminder for me. Have to test my sugar. I have been trying to remember to test it at least once a day. I am so bad when it comes to testing it. Sometimes a week can go by before I remember. And I keep the glucometer right next to my bed along with the strips and lancet in full sight. I look right past it.

I had heard of cream cheese frosting Addie, but I assumed it would be as bad, if not worse, than buttercream icing.

But actually, cream cheese frosting is delicious!

Mind you, I suppose it does depend how much sugar you add to it!

I made mine with Mascarpone, coffee, and icing sugar. Honestly, I was licking the bowl out!

The daily ritual of taking blood pressure readings, he gets his machine out, I get mine and we GO!!! Yes, we don't share one...Shrek keeps forgetting to move the button to the second person and I get very erratic data when I upload my readings for the doctor.

Katy, if you want something really yummy to put under that icing I suggest you make a Hummingbird Cake. I have an old recipe (1979) from a fundraiser cookbook and can't find the exact recipe online. However I did run across a lightened up version that I think I will try. No guarantee how this recipe turns out but it sounds good. Also, the directions tell you to pour the batter into 3 round cake pans. I would make 3 cakes in throw-away foil pans (about 7x10 inch?) and freeze two of them without the icing and make just 1/3 of a recipe worth of icing. That way if I wanted a quick dessert I had the cake part ready.

I'm listening to intermittent cat complaints. I put Shreddy in the guest room, with food, water, and a litter box. We're not supposed to sleep with him for two weeks. I don't want to wake up and find him snuggled up next to me. Well, actually I do, but I'm being cautious. Shreddy is not happy. Poor boy.

Separation Anxiety. How sweet! He'll probably "mark" all the upholstery furniture when you let him out in the morning.

Oh dear, I hope not. His urine is radioactive. He doesn't mark upholstery, but he has been known to pee on the floor when he's ticked off. That's bad enough. I have to wear disposable gloves to clean up any messes he makes for the next two weeks. And, then it has to be flushed or put in a bag that stays outside the house for three months before going in the regular garbage.
