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.

1 lb ground beef
1 small onion, diced
1/4 cup butter, melted
1 small green bell pepper, chopped
1/8 tsp freshly ground black pepper
1 can low-fat cream of mushroom soup
2 medium-size zucchini, sliced thin
1/2 tsp salt

Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
Lightly butter a 2-quart casserole dish; set aside.

In a skillet, cook the ground beef with the onion until the beef is browned; drain well.

Combine the drained beef/onion mixture with the remaining ingredients, mixing well. Transfer mixture to the prepared casserole dish.

Bake at 375 degrees for 30 to 45 minutes.
