What is the custardy filling you put in your tarts? It looks amazing!

Blood glucose. I am a diabetic. Somethings throw my bg high. Somethings do not. Like pasta typically does not rock my blood sugar. Let me eat a bit of rice though...

For lunch today, I had potato soup, cheese, sausage, crackers, and an apple. To drink, sugar free (Crystal Lite) Lemonade.

Thank you Kathleen.
It’s cream cheese, mascarpone, whipped cream, lemon juice, vanilla and powdered sugar.

Wednesday is cheat day for me, I usually get the special at the Livestock Sale Barn Cafe. I had two pulled pork tacos in corn tortillas with a delightful coleslaw made with chipotle sauce and pico, pork chili and black beans. Ice water for a beverage.

As for the too sweet mandarins, I rarely eat sugar of any kind and found out they were just overly sweet for me now. Since my bypass surgery I have lost 45 pounds (10 more to go), plan on keeping it that way.

That is awesome, PF! 45 pounds equals 180 sticks of butter lost from your frame!
