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. Everyone reacts different to various foods. Check your blood sugar readings so you will know whether or not a recipe works for you! And feel free to take a recipe and adjust it to suit your needs.

2 1/2 cups cubed cooked turkey
1 1/2 cups sour cream, divided
3 tsp taco seasoning mix, divided
1 can cream of mushroom soup, undiluted
1 1/2 cup shredded Mexican Blend Cheese
1 small onion, chopped
1/2 cup salsa
1/4 cup sliced black olives
10 (7-inch size) flour tortillas
Shredded lettuce for garnish
Chopped tomatoes for garnish

In a bowl combine the turkey, 1/2 cup of the sour cream, and half the taco seasoning mix, half of the soup, the onion, 1 cup of the cheese, the salsa and the olives.  Be sure to combine well. 

Place 1/3 cup of the mixture down the center of each tortilla.  Roll up and place seam side down in the prepared baking pan. 

In another bowl, combine the remaining sour cream, taco seasoning mix, and soup.  Stir to blend well then pour over the tortillas in the pan. 

Cover pan with foil and bake at 350 degrees for 30 minutes or until heated through.  Remove from oven, remove foil and sprinkle with the remaining cheese.  Garnish with shredded lettuce and chopped tomatoes.
