WELCOME TO DIABETIC ENJOYING FOOD

I have chosen this name for this blog because it truly states my story. I am a type II diabetic who most certainly enjoys food. When I was diagnosed with diabetes several years ago, my blood sugar level was over 400. With some oral medications, a lot of research and some trial and error, I have found that unlike my ancestors I truly can continue to enjoy food. I hope this blog will help you to also enjoy food and be healthy. Some recipes are my originals and some I have collected.

APPLE & TURKEY POTPIE

1/4 cup chopped yellow onion
1 tbsp butter
1 can (10 3/4-oz) condensed cream of chicken soup
1 can (10 3/4-oz) condensed cream of celery soup
3 cups cubed cooked turkey*
1 large Granny Smith apple, peeled & cubed
1/3 cup raisins, optional
1 tsp lemon juice
1/4 tsp ground nutmeg
Pastry for a single-crust pie

Preheat oven to 425 degrees.

In a large saucepan, melt butter over medium heat; add the onion and saute until tender. Add the soups, turkey, apple, raisins - if using, lemon juice, and nutmeg; mix together well. Spoon the mixture into an 11 x 7 x 2-inch baking dish.

On a floured surface, roll out the pastry dough to fit the baking dish. Cut slits or a design in the pastry. Place the pastry over the turkey mixture and flute the edges using the tines of a fork.

Bake the potpie at 425 degrees for about half an hour or until the crust is a golden brown and the filling is bubbly.

Yield: 6 servings

*May substitute turkey.
