How the heck did it get to be mid-September–and FALL–already?
If you’re in southern Ontario next Sunday (September 26th), I’m going to be at Toronto’s annual Word on the Street celebration at Queen’s Park. It’s a chance to mingle with publishers, authors and illustrators of all types of books–non-fiction, children’s books, young adult, literary, romance, you name it. I’ll be hanging around the Toronto Romance Writers’ booth mid-afternoon.
It’s only about three weeks to Thanksgiving (up here in Canada, we hold it on the second Monday in October) and I’ve got not a clue what to serve considering that this year two of our family are now complete vegetarians. Since a turkey is probably out of the question, maybe I’ll see if I can find a turkey breast for Guitar Hero and I. And since Gizmo Guy’s diabetes diagnosis and I’m trying to watch my intake as well, I can’t make a fancy sweet potato pie with marshmallows or GG’s favorite for Thanksgiving — peanut butter pie (OMG I finally found the perfect recipe for it and now after only two years I can’t make it *sob*) I guess I could make one of my apple or peach crisps but I make those fairly often and I don’t feel like they’re special enough for Thanksgiving dinner. I can substitute Splenda instead of sugar, but we also need to go easy on butter and oils. Heck with diabetes even fruit can be too much. Any one got any good recipes for a fancy dessert I can adjust for someone with diabetes?
