Cracker Barrel puts sugar in green beans and I swear I've had turnip greens there that tasted sweet too.

That's the common way to make veges in the South. Remember a couple of weeks ago I told about going back to my favorite Soul Food eatery and tasting sugar in everything? I know the cook there and when she came out to speak, I asked her and she says she puts sugar in all her veg to up the flavor. She also adds a touch of baking soda to all her greens. Cornbread too at times. Sad for some of us?

Funny - I always add a pinch of SALT to everything to pop up the flavors . . . even the morning coffee. Added sugar sure IS sad for us!

I love going out to eat, but I've been doing it less and less lately. I find I gain weight when I eat out too many nights in a row, even when I think I've calculated everything in it correctly. My blood sugar is never as good, either. Plus, like your husband, it's never quite as filling. (Or enjoyable.) Don't know why. I have a few restaurant standbys that I know I can trust, but I'm such a party pooper these days because I am very reluctant to try any place new.
