    Hi Shirley, did you ever get a chance to make this? Just wondering. Many diabetis in the family and they would appreciate something with less sugar than the original.

    No I have never made it as I just recently found out I am diabetic and I have to wait till I can get the ingredients.. I do my big grocery shopping when I get my SS check so it has to wait till I can get the ingredients. I will make it and let you know and will also post a picture of it as well..

    One thing I know for sure is that I have got to get with the program and stay with it till the end.I think the worse thing with the diabetes for Me is that if I don't get with it and stick to the change of eating habits I could end up blind and for a gal that loves to read that would just be the end for me. What diabetic recipes I have seen they look good to me and I suppose you could take any recipe and make it diabetic friendly. I have it in my head that my plate should be half veggies. meat the size of a card and small size rice or potato and sugar free desserts such as a pie should be 1/8th of a piece. So that means smaller portions of everything too.. My spoiled old tummy is going "OH NO"! LOL
