Thanks. I treat my diabetes different than most, I don't eat any grains at all (unless I cheat, like today) because I strive to keep my blood sugar below 140 at all times. 4 years and I still don't have to take any meds, so far so good, knock on wood.

A couple Tbs. of Apple Cider Vinegar when eating spaghetti or high carbs, cuts the carbs in half. Gotta disguise it in lemonade or lemon drink, and we take the capsules.
Tina gets them at the health food store or Puritan Pride. It works for us.
Apple cider vinegar slows the carb absorption as I was told by a severe diabetic who watches her numbers.
That's some great information. I'll definitely give it a try. Thanks.

Still shopping for home/car insurance, so I've had limits of liability and exclusions dancing around in my head for the past few days . I've already found a way to save $500 by switching. I've still got one more quote coming before I make up my mind.

I am going to cook beef and the recipe which I have picked is "homestyle beef stew" from Knorr. Actually I have taken leave from my office to look-after by sweet angel.

For "homestyle beef stew" recipe I have collected all the necessary information from

http://www.knorr.com/recipes/detail/...tyle-beef-stew.

You all can certainly try this beef recipe cooked with a difference and share in your experience in reply to my thread.

Hi Sylvia,
Since you posted the link we might as well show that recipe here. It does indeed look GOOD. Let us know how it comes out.

Ingredients

1 lb. beef eye round roast, cut into 1-inch pieces
2 Tbsp. all-purpose flour
2 Tbsp. vegetable oil
2 medium onions, chopped
2 cloves garlic, finely chopped
1 tub Knorr® Homestyle Stock - Beef
2 cups water
2 tsp. Worcestershire sauce
4 cups baby red potatoes, halved
3 carrots, sliced

Directions

Toss beef with flour; set aside.
Heat oil in large saucepan over medium heat and brown beef. Remove beef from saucepot; set aside.
Stir onions and garlic into same saucepot and cook, stirring frequently, until onions are tender, about 4 minutes. Stir in Knorr® Homestyle Stock - Beef, water, Worcestershire sauce and beef. Bring to a boil over high heat, stirring until Stock is melted. Reduce heat to low and simmer covered, stirring occasionally, 40 minutes or until beef is almost tender. Stir in potatoes and carrots and simmer an additional 40 minutes or until beef and vegetables are tender.

Just got finished shoveling 4 inches of heavy slushy snow!
The snow blower could not touch it..... Good Ole Back Breaking shovel by shovel!

We were happy to see snow.... but not like the 12 inches they forecast. That would have been great!

Been putting the kitchen back together with the cabinets painted for "She who must be obeyed." Also made a couple of loaves of old fashion white bread for a couple of shut-ins we know.

I braved the wild people and did a little Black Friday shopping yesterday. Everyone in the stores seemed nice and calm, but the maniacs driving in the traffic were a different story.

Sams had some Kenneth Cole boots that I wanted to look at, pretty good deal for $29. Ended up with just a few things and came home and ordered some shower fixtures online.

Looks great Joe!

I've been through the paint the cabinets thing too!
Then, after a year.... a look from the woman , and the quote!
" Look at the old cabinet is showing around the door pulls!!"

I said,"Watch this demo dear!" KNOB! Do you see the KNOB??? See .... PULL...To you see the PULL????" ..... Watch! Hand on knob...open door. Push on knob...close door!

Pull! Hand on Pull...Open the drawer.... Push on Pull...Door Closes! ....
..... S I M P L E ........... That is why they are put on the drawers and doors!!

3 weeks later.... At the stores getting the new kitchen cabinets.

ME.... I like the old metal cabinets and the kitchen sink with the old shelf back faucet, and the built in sloped drain board in the heavy cast iron sink.

I planted a ginger root to the pot. Maybe too early to it but one ginger root I bought for tea started to make buds so I decided to give it a try.

Still on the painting project. Cabinets have been done for a couple of days, and yesterday I finished the foyer, as much as will be done before Christmas. the railing will wait till January. Finished the three slab doors and hung them this morning while the repairman replaced the torsion springs on my garage door. One busted yesterday, and as it turned out, there were two different springs on the bar. I had one replaced about 10 years ago, and they installed a weaker spring. Now both are the same and the door is back in service. $230.00

Today I need to grocery shop and paint the two bi-fold doors. they will be hung tomorrow. Here's where I'm at.

NICE Joe!.... just make sure they know what the door knob is for.
I used to tell the kids,"the handle is where we grab to OPEN.....and grab to CLOSE the door!!!...
Did they listen?...NOT

What I did, was ( you know those heavy clear plastic containers that the narrow 1" Venetian blinds come in?).... Well I save them and most are 1-3/8 wide. I cut them about 12" long, and remove one side, and then slide it on the door just below the lockset. That is the spot the kids, and some of the grown kids, grab to close / open the door. Saves a lot of greasy sticky spots, and easy to clean with windex.

Remember the old brass push plates on the older doors? If it were me, I would put them on the doors. DW frowned at that idea!
She said, NO, "I don't live in the post office"....LOL

My dishwasher rack has a few rust spots on it, so I'm going to try to fix it before it gets too bad. I let the one before this one get beyond repair . I bought some stuff called Uber Goop and am going to give that a shot this afternoon. If it seems to work and looks decent, I'll show ya .

. . . doing today . . .

if you hear a loud crash, that would be me fixing my Windows notebook with the sledgehammer....

Windows is out of control. DOS worked; Windows pseudo-works aka "crashes just most of the time"

the HP crashed so bad not even the factory CD's have been able to make it work again. the factory CD's install the operating system on Drive D: that's an oops.

and the Acronis True Image bombs as well.

so I downloaded a Win7 ISO file, but the HP product number refuses to work with that. sounded, simple, get a working Win 7 setup, overwrite with the TI image.
neat idea, totally doesn't work.
