Hi, I'm back. I decided on a stir-fry today. This isn't bad at all. Its pretty good. The combination of the ingredients helps to keep the blood sugar normal, for a diabetic. It stays in the range required for us. We have had couple of pretty hot days around here and is getting cooler (so they say). I hope you are all staying cool. I hope you all enjoy this recipe. Until tomorrow.
