Making Dinner...

I  baked lasagna for Dinner tonight when I got the bright idea to put it under broil. Well when I took it out after three minutes, it looks just under burnt. I could not believe it.  I normally would not be using the stove on such a lovely  hot  day but my blood sugars have been running way low like 3.1 this morning. Its been suddenly dropping day or night for about two weeks now. The Diabetic Dietion said to keep increasing carbs which I have been doing but my blood sugar still drops. Oh well hopefully Ed will not mind the lasagna being a bit crunchy.winksmile

You could probably scrape off the crunchy top part, shred more Parmesan over the dish, and it would be just as good as it was meant to be.

I'm surprised, not that I know much about diabetes, that your dietician suggested increasing carbs instead of seeing the doctor about lowering your insulin dosage.  Diabetes is a very Tricky Thing.

 oh Kitty I forgot to add yes I have been lowering my Insulin intake almost daily in accordance to my Diabetic Dietician. I am taking 12 units less than I was two weeks ago. I must have read your mind about the lasagna because I did scrape off of the center of the top. I did not have any more Parmesan so I used Mozzarella  and it was very good. Ed was happy and never knew the difference.hmmhmmhmm

 Perfect, just the way I like it!  I intentionally overcook a number of foods, hot dogs, toast, pancakes and pizza come to mind.  I'll probably get cancer from all the carcinogens.

Huzzahs on being able to lower the insulin dosage, may your improvements continue.

There is no such thing as too much mozzarella on lasagnas or pizzas, and the longer and higher we can stretch it, twirl it, swirl it, and finally pop it into our mouths, the more we enjoy it.

Life is good.  Lasagna's better. smile

 Oh yes! I love my toast almost to the burnt stage with lots of Becel and a bit of peanut butter and multi fruit jam. Yum! oh yes and French Toast not burnt but crisp.  I can only have it once a while which woks out to about 4 times a year and not all on the same or week.

I think I'll leave you two to your Burnt Offerings.

I have to have hamburgers and all the tender cuts of beef and occasional lamb outrageously rare, yes!  I like my rare (as in seldom) tuna steaks rare (as in bright pink), too.

The past few years, I've lost interest in food, yes, this from the Younger Kitty...OK, the Middle-aged Kitty (who will never admit to going beyond that)...who watched cooking shows for 2 hours every afternoon on PBS a few decades ago.

Meh, food is good, sleep is better, the less of the former and the more of the latter in all circumstances.

...and desserts, King Eddie continues his reign over the kitchen.

Thursday afternoon's enterprise produced two cheesecakes topped with cherry pie filling, which, although I haven't asked and he hasn't said, are probably destined for a couple of our neighbors.  The sooner the better, I'm thinking, before I become too attracted to them.
