We Celebrated!

Last night, to mark two years with Diabetes, we had a celebratory dinner.  =)

On the menu:
Naan Bread and Hummus
Pomegranate Salad with Blueberry / Pomegranate Vinaigrette
Middle Eastern Chicken Pot
with Butter Almond Cous Cous
and Tapioca Pudding with Baked Apples and Caramel Sauce for dessert.

OK - not the most kid-friendly meal (although, the Sugar Kids LOVED it!!) but I had a bit of a stressful day at work, and when that happens, cooking is my therapy.  Needless to say by the time dinner was done, I was VERY relaxed.... of course that also could have been the wine.... hmmmmmm....

Before and after dinner the kids played Candy Land with Grandma and Grandpa.  Laughter and high energy  filled the house.  When it came time to put on PJ's the kids were so wound up and had the giggles so much we couldn't even catch them to get them undressed and dressed again.  As you may have guessed, as a result of all of our revelry, Sugar Boy got two glucose tabs before bed.  =)

It was a GREAT night! 


  1. Glad that you guys celebrated BIG TIME Donna...although too bad that you had a stressful day at work.

    Dinner and WINE sounds yummy. I may need to pop down for a visit!

  2. Nights full of family, giggles and good food are the best!

    Dinner sounded delicious! What's the chicken recipe? Sounds SO good!
