    November already! There is so much happening! The American Diabetes Association designates November as American Diabetes Month. It is also incluides:

    All Saints Day, All Souls Day, Guy Fawkes Day, The US Elections, National Dunce Day, US Veteran's Day, Remembrance Day, Armistice Day, International Tongue Twister Day, World Diabetes Day, International Day of Tolerance, International Men's Day, Universal Children Day, US Thanksgiving, US Black Friday and St Andrews.....with all of that going on we have lots to do.

    One of the most important things we have to do is take care of ourselves. That includes among other things eating well and watching our diets. Over the years we have learned many tips to eating healthier. This month in the Diabetic Forum, Andi, Mia and I are asking that you not only tag some of your fall favorites but help us to learn from you how you create healthy delicious meals that aid in maintaining a healthy diabetic lifestyle.

    Who Can Play?

    Anyone can play.

    What recipes can be tagged for this game?

    Any recipe that has been posted s eligible for tagging. The recipes you tag do not have to be in the specific category for "Diabetic" nor do they have to have "lower in sugar, starches...etc". We have learned to be a creative bunch and this month we will be tagging and making over our fall favorites.

    How to Play:

    1) Choose ANY recipe that has been posted to the website.

    2) Post a reply to this thread stating which recipe you are preparing, and include the recipe name, recipe number, posting chefs name.
    i.e. = Andi icon_arrow.gif Paula's Recipe xxxxxxxx, xxxxxxxx

    3) Make the recipe within the month time period, but we will keep the thread open a couple of days beyond the end of the month in case you want to finish a last minute recipe up.

    4) Post your review to the recipe page, and picture if you have taken one.

    5) Report back to this thread that you have made and reviewed the recipe you tagged, including the recipe name, recipe number, posting chefs name. Post the photo too, as we love seeing your photos and this just makes adds to the fun.
    i.e. = Andi has completed: Paula's Recipe xxxxxxxx, xxxxxxxx


    Please come and join the fun while we learn to be healthy together!

    We have the autumn fair here, we have the biggest fair of Switzerland!
    I took some picture and posted in my autumn fair topic as well as more informations.

    There are a lot of specialities there, but icon_cry.gif really not diabetic friendly or gluten free.
    I wish you a nice Saturday!

    Hi everyone. Andi, the finger is still giving me a little trouble but it does seem better. Awake, the fair sounds great. We spent the last couplemofmdays with the grandchildren. It was lots of fun. Home again and will start cooking in the next day or so.

    Happy Sundy all! We change from daylight saving time this weekend. Don't forget to set those clocks.

    Hello Andi! I am glad that you were spared the storms wrath. I will be doing Thanksgiving this year. I'm getting with the other grandma and we are going to make recipe selections on Thursday deciding who is doing what.

    That soup looks so delicious. May have to check that out myself.

    Hi all wave.gif
    My internet gave in, so I'm totally behind icon_confused.gif
    Paula, hope your finger will mend soon completely


    Awalde, hope that you're having fun with the autumn fair icon_biggrin.gif I guess a fun fair isn't meant for eating healthily icon_lol.gif Just enjoy - the health stuff can make its way here.

    Andi, hope everything on the farm is okay and you were not affected by Sandy at all or at least not badly!

    wave.gif Welcome back Mia!
    The Autumn fair is (was?) for me fun as I like to look and take pictures.
    Actually I don't need rides to go, it's much more fun to look at the people there! I love the colors and lights; it's a wonderful way to cut out a piece of darkness.

    I love "Magenbrot" this year I prepared again the full amount of my recipe (more or less pounds!). I take from time to time a piece, but not too much and not too often. My DS ( FS..."Fre..-Sa..") can eat a lot without gaining wait!
    SNIF, we cannot. I act as I wouldn’t see when he goes to the Magenbrot-Reservoir!

    I asked my DH if he would like to have "Chääsküechli", but my DH seem to have enough of such stuff as he gets this for lunch (not at home!) during the week.
    "Chääsküechli" are small cheese pies in Alemannish (a German dialect), they are served during the fair.
    A photo from the web:
    .

    Mässmogge are thumb-sized, hazelnut praline-filled sugar candies. They are a regional and seasonal specialty of Basel, Switzerland, where they are made and sold at around the time of the autumn fair. Good, but I don't miss them,


    Fairy floss, roasted almonds, nougat-halva, are only some of the sweet snacks.

    Klöpfer, Joggeliwurst (2 kind of Swiss sausages) got new companions: merguezes, Weisswürste (not Swiss sausages) and so on.
    Some stalls serve Indian or Chinese specialties now!

    Mia is right, that stuff is really not healthy, but, except of the Magenbrot, I really have no problem to avoid this kind of food!
    Decades ago peoples didn't have so much sweets and great food, at this time the fair with this kind of food, was really something special.

    I remember the Mässmogge very well icon_lol.gif I tried them while living in Freiburg, but I guess I'm more the Chääschueechli type icon_lol.gif
    Do you happen to have a recipe for them? I'd love to convert it into gluten free, haven't had them in ages and would so much like one icon_biggrin.gif

    Good morning all! It is a rainy Tuesday and election day in the US. I completed my last 2 recipes for PAC and wanted to share.

    Rice Pudding (For One), #337291 by Spgty21 is made with brown rice. I used low fat milk and 1 tablespoon honey for 2 servings. It made a delicious quick dessert.


    Rosemary Parmesan Polenta, #468594 by Julie.25 Made a delicious bed for my Cajun Shrimp and sauteed Peas. The recipe called for cream and butter. I made it healtheir by using low fat milk with a higher ratio of chicken stock. The olive oil was reduced to just enough to coast the pan.

    Hi dear Mia!
    Sometimes I prepare a "Chääsweihe" (not Chääsküechli, but the difference is only the size) using puff pastry or a simple savory crust and in the cheese mix I mix eggs, milk, nutmeg, pepper and "Martini bianco"!
    A friend of me (and Italian gave me this tip of the Martini Bianco), on the crust place a thin layer of "prosciutto crudo".
    In my case I skip the prosciutto crudo, but Martini bianco is a great tip, a genial one. She did not add flour to the mix, simply not too much milk.
    This lady leaned me A LOT about cooking, I went in the forest with her looking for mushrooms, she introduced me to the South Italian and Mediterranean cuisine.
    Back to the Chääsweihe, I have no recipe, I prepare this but I never mesure it,
    perhaps you are right, I should prepare this once mesuring the ingredients, prepare this other times and find out the best quantities.
    At the moment I can only give you the simple tip: Maritini Bianco icon_lol.gif !
