  1. We love lamb chops and we make a very simple mint sauce. Your mint sauce sounds delicious. I have to try it. Even in winter we grill lamb on the outdoor grill. It really brings out the flavor.
    Left you a note on WAG and I learned something new on Maxy Sez. I learned diabetes is a complex illness that affects every aspect of a person's life and every system of their body. I so respect that you have never let it define you or rule you.
    Stay well my dear friend

    Diabetes is very complex and if you keep control off your sugar levels / eat right / exercise you will do fine and always remember that you are in control .
    That goes for any illness , you can't stop because you feel better , continue and it will be as common as getting out of bed in the mornings .
