The Roller Coaster Ride of Diabetes! Whoo! Whoo!

I am a Type 1 diabetic diagnosed back in the early 60's as a child.  I am living in Montreal, Canada and enjoy scribbling about diabetes from time to time. I’ve had my ups / downs just like any person would experience with going through life - diabetic or not.  My motto in life?  Diabetes does not control me – I control it!! 

You can find more posts/discussions at my Facebook page called "The Roller Coaster Ride of Diabetes" and also on Twitter under the name of FatCatAnna.  Feel free to follow me at both places or send me a private message!

  • D-Feast Friday - Peanut Butter / Marmalade / Bacon Butty

    Okay – a few of you are going to be going – gross, gross, gross – but it actually is a really yummy combination – and a butty is a sandwich or sarnie (you don’t only have a cooking lesson – but also a language lesson <lol>).  It’s something my Mum used to make from time to time as a lunch for us as kids (though I’m not sure if my brother liked it – have to ask him – he was a picky eater at times).  The one thing, you have to use bacon from a pig.  I’ve switched over recently to turkey bacon, and it’s not the same, so luckily I have a butcher close by that I can just purchase the slices I need, so there is no waste.

    So, ingredients are very simple.  Your choice of bread, 2 slices (you are making a sandwich right).  I prefer something with abit of nuttiness in it (of course, you can’t beat my homemade bread).  Then you need some peanut butter (chunky or not – whatever is your preference), orange marmalade (Robertson’s Golden Shred is my favourite since I’m British), and 3 slices of bacon (if you want more – you can have more – depends on your love of  bacon – and how many high fat meat exchanges you are allowed).

    Cook up the bacon until it’s nice and crispy, lay it between a sheet of paper towel to soak up any access fat – set aside – toast up bread – then put peanut butter on one slice of toast  – then marmalade on the other slice of toast – place bacon on top of one slathered slice of toast – plunk down other slice of toast – and now you have the most delicious butty/sarnie/sandwich that you have ever had.  Don’t roll your eyeballs at this until you have given it a try – if you like all of these ingredients – trust me – you will love the combination of peanut/saltiness of smoked bacon/bitter sweet marmalade!
