Don't Slander Me

I know, I know. It's not 'que. We were supposed to cook over New Year's weekend, but my wife got sick and wound up eating chicken soup and watching the Monk marathon. Somewhere along the way, we made a pizza. Our pizza stone cracked in half, so I just slide the 2 pieces back together like a puzzle. The pizza doesn't seem to notice.

Today, my family's coming over to celebrate my dad's birthday, which was yesterday. I'll post some pics later. We're having brisket and chicken, cole slaw, brussel sprouts and some other stuff. It's tough because my dad's a diabetic to know how to cook for him-- I bought some diabetic cookbooks, but I gave them to him. I've been dying to make some bacon-wrapped chicken, so I'm making that for the fam. I'm excited. I'm trying to decide how I want to marinate the chicken, but time is getting tight so I'll have to let my gut, err, stomach...instincts lead the way.

I'm sorry to hear about your wife. I hope she's feeling better. And wish your Dad a happy birthday from WhiteTrash/BrooklynQ.

I don't know if I told you about my daughter being diabetic. It's real easy to cook for a diabetic person, just be sure to balance your fats and proteins with sugars.

For example, whole milk ice cream is better for a diabetic than the low fat version because the fat actually regulates how the sugar from the ice cream is released into the blood.

Just stay away from the quick an pure sugars and you'll do fine with Dad. Any questions, fire away. I'm no expert, but I'll answer what I can.

And by the way. I Q'd today. La Di Da!

Thanks for the tips, Robert. As you may have noticed, healthy cooking is not my forte' :-) was until he had a bunch of wine and chocolate mousse cake. My mom was slapping his hand all night.

That Boboli pizza sounds good, Mista. Any pictures/recipe?
