WOW, you folks are sure busy!! My husband left for the airport before dawn this morning to fly back to Florida and visit his 97 yr old mom for the weekend.
Sure is quiet this morning around here. I'm trying to think of something to do for the weekend I wouldn't do if he was here. Guess I could clean out his closet and get rid of all his clothes I hate. Hmm, not a bad idea.

Out of the strawberries we bought last weekend, I made a pie as the swan song. Splurged and made the crust using lard. Boy did it turn out nice. Also made a batch of English muffins.

Other than those two things, the day was pretty much low key. We took the motorcycle over to Glenn's daughter's house (about 17 miles) to bring a card and gift to a granddaughter who turned 13 on Thursday.

Stayed and visited about an hour while the children ran and played and spent lots of time splashing through the garden hose and pool.

Pizza at home for supper tonight, topped off with a healthy serving of homemade strawberry ice cream. Those strawberries sure are good.

Tomorrow? Who knows. I kinda want to make a couple of loaves of French bread to have on hand. Probably will since the weather's supposed to be iffy. If it doesn't rain, even if I do make the bread, we'll probably head to the pond out back and catch some catfish for dinner.

Katie sweetie hello!! it has been a long time how have you been? I just found out I am diabetic and the thing that makes me VERY sad is that I won't be able to eat your fantastic devils food cake I guess one small piece once in awhile wouldn't hurt?

just figure out the carbs and eat accordly. often if it is high in carbs, i replace a meal (usually lunch) with a treat.

how many carbs are ok and how do I read the label properly? I found low carb\low fat wraps. it says only 7g net carbs per wrap on the front of the bag but on the back label it says:
total carb 15g
dietary fiber 8g
sugars 0

so is it 7g or 15g? all my doctor told my was I can have as much meat and veggies I want and thats it. I have been trying to find out what I can on my own.

You subtract the Fiber grams from the carbs leaving you with 7g of carbs.

msmofet, are you diet or medication controlled?
