Experiments with Pasta

Believe me, I had no expectations that I could continue to eat boatloads of pasta as was my habit before learning of my pre-D condition. But I did want to see what a reasonable portion might do. Starting at a 73 bg level before dinner, I was at 108 2 hrs in; crossed my fingers, but jumped to 118 at 3hrs, down to 116 at 3.5. Then I had to go to bed. Woke up at 99, so I don't think I did too much damage. At least I hope not.

I guess I will cope in the future with meatballs. I don't think zucchini strips will cut it for an Italian American . . . Sigh.
