It really helped hearing from all of you and your support.  I have pretty much cut out all bread, potato's, pasta, another words CARBS.  I did get a meter from the doctor and have to check my blood sugar twice a day. Doctor has me on Metphormin 500mg., once a day.  I can't exercise like I… MORE

About Me
I am a easy going guy who is always busy. Yes ladys and gents I don't have time for TV. During the winter months I am either hunting or most likely helping down at the church. During spring I am working on repairs outside and getting my hotbox ready for the garden. Summer and fall I am busy canning and freezing what comes out of my garden. I also cook all the meals for the day or event.
My favorite things to cook
I have to thank my mother for this. She broke her ankle when I was 10 years old, and there is where I learned to cook. I am nothing compared to my mother,(she is a true Chef), can make a delicous dish from scraps in the refigerator. Anyhow, I make a lot of bread type, deserts, nationalities.
My favorite family cooking traditions
You most likely won't like this. As a youngster we used to have family reunions and get togethers all the time. We would all go fishing and have a fish fry, and the ladys would bring side dishes and of corse desserts. That has gone now because America is to busy.
My cooking triumphs
Everything I have ever done has been great. I always end up with a empty dish.
My cooking tragedies
None: My daughter burnt popcorn;;; how do you burn popcorn? She said I did it, thats my girl.
