Mmm-mmm! If I weren't still full from that lasagna, y'all *would* be making me hungry! I love rye bread. I was already looking up flaky pastry, as DH knows it, closer to rough puff pastry, as I know it. And then ciabatta, chewy Italian loaves.

Buncha good cooks here. No wonder we gain weight at GCs!

I'm so glad you guys "get it" about cooking! I like the challenge and adventure of trying new recipes, or "hacking" traditional ones so they are diabetic friendly for Allen. We do "moderate carb" -- so between 50 and a hundred carbs a day. We still eat bread and potatoes and rice, we just try to maximize resistant starch and fiber in order to do it.

So my culinary adventure today is gonna be making a delicate fish stock from scratch, for boulliabase. The fish market is supposed to be calling me this morning with heads and bones from white fish, and I've saved the shells from crab legs and shrimp. There's some unusual ingredients I need to pick up: pernod and saffron threads. Looking forward to it.

Edit: uh, nope one the pernod. Too expensive for 2tbsp! So I'll brew a strong licorice spice tea instead.

Gona take me a drink then I'll roam around
Gona check on my stills and see if their ok
Rye whiskey rye whiskey please last all day.

Yep.... i like to try things.....
hub is type 1 insulin dependent diabetic cause of pancreatitis......
He has to have carbs,to balance insulin
Hub had heart attack 20 years ago with 5 bypass, so heart healthy
Diet too
Hub has kidney disease from heart damage, so Low potassium
Hub now takes warfarin, so watch vitamin K closely, test at home
Weekly
Hub had to have all teeth pulled in October because of danger of gum
Disease

SO........ creative cooking.... yep, good thing i liked the challenge.




Sue, what kind of puffy noodles are you referring to?
Spätzle maybe.... i do make those, but they are flour....

Bait eaters! Haha, love it Hunt. Yup yup.

Di, yep same thing with Allen. Insulin, 2 heart attacks, 1 stent. Heart disease, diabetes, hypoglycemia on both sides of his family. I want him around to be a cranky old cuss, so learning to cook for his issues was paramount.

Okay, I just stumbled into sprouted wheat flour last week. Learned about it from a blog. Take a look at these stats!

If our experiments go well, and his bs doesn't spike, this could be a game changer.

Good morning, your up pretty early. Started a reply a few minutes ago and was interrupted by a phone call. Had a man at deer camp wanting to hunt on one of my stands. Too cold for me to hang on the side of a tree with a bow, those days have passed.

Yup, I think you're right Tim. Looks like we got about 3" but no drifting so far. We are planning on escaping during the next warm up next Saturday but it's doubtful that the s$$w will have gone by then. We have to drive about 3 miles before reaching a plowed road so maybe we will have to stay a little longer. Having to rely more on our wood burning insert now since the ground floor geothermal unit is beginning to fail. It's 17 years old and will need replacing soon ($3-4K) ouch! The back-up propane furnace is still working though so we will leave it 'til after our trip.
See y'all later, whenever.
