    Rick, are you familiar with the strange phenomenon known as the "turducken"? It's a Cornish game hen stuffed inside a duck stuffed inside a turkey. This year, a guy I knew experimented with the "turbaducken" - he made the turducken as usual, then wrapped the whole thing in bacon. That sounds right up your alley, right?

        Ham, pasta salad, bread, etc. The usual stuff we eat every year for Xmas/Yule/Festivus.

        EDIT: WTF? This was in the general food subforum when I posted. O_o

          Down here in the South we have turducken cajun style. It is a boneless chicken stuffed into a duck stuffed into a turkey which has cornbread stuffing between the layers too! The chicken and duck are completely deboned and the Turkey is deboned except for the legs and wings. The food safety trick is not to assemble this until you are ready to cook it to prevent food borne illness and to keep all the poultry refrigerated. They are truly yummy!

                      Unique Yule!!

                      My "favorite son" (family friend who lives with the kids and I) has identifyed with the Jewish ancestory from his fathers side. I told him I would cook him a traditional hanukah (sp??) dinner either on the first night or the last night of Hanuka. Hanuka begins in the 21st, so we will be "merging" our holy nights.

                      We'll have a traditional Jewish meal of roast chicken, Latkes, apple sauce, donuts and hanakuh cookies. I will throw in some speghetti squash just because I like it!!

                      After dinner I'll have Jason tell us a little about Hanukah, and we'll light the first candle of the menorah. Then we'll hold the soltice ritual, decorate the house, and after closing the ritual, we'll open our soltice gifts. This will be the first soltice we will have done a ritual for. I'm finally getting pumped and maybe even getting into the season. If I can start a tradition at my house of decorating on Soltice as part of the ritual, I'll be a happy old woman . . . LOL. Next year will be a challenge as we will be moved in with my parents by that time. I wonder if they will participate with me . . . we'll see if we can teach a couple of old dogs some new tricks!!

                            OK, calm down. As a type 2 diabetic, I can tell you one thing. You can have half servings of everything, but choose the half serving of one of the pies. So, you just have to follow your serving guide. And scrape off all the extras on the ham. That would be a half a palm deck of card size to us. and 1/4 instead of one half cups of everything else. Check your sugar before and 2 hours after you eat. NO SNACKING unless your sugar is too low. Most likely it will be a tiny bit high and a walk or sliding scale insulin will be in order(if you are on it).
                            If you deprive yourself, you will be in the fridge in the middle of the night, which will be worse(trust me)for your diabetes.
                            Then one more to get through, if you celebrate New years as well, and your portions depend on the region you honor.
                            Our family eats southern and German. so lunch is black-eyed peas and cornbread and supper is sauerkraut and spare ribs with potatoes.
                            You can eat those things too. Just watch your portions and dessert.
                            Hang in there. You will work it out.

                              Our holiday meals usually consist of baked ham, chicken-dressing, cranberry sauce, potato salad and green beans, with some sort of pie for dessert, usually either apple, pecan, or pumpkin pie.

                                I am type 1 ( juvenile onset) insulin dependent. You can still eat and take a shot to keep your sugar level stable. You will not ever be able to just pig out ever again however. Watch your carbs and starches mind the portion sizes.

                                (Most adult onset patients are actually classified as type 2)
                                If you are type 2 you can still eat and watch portions too. Follow the nutrition plan you are given and again you cant not pig out anymore. Take your pills and insulin if severe case ! Limit the starches and carbs and watch your portion sizes. Look for a cooking with Splenda cookbook great desserts in there! You can look up Holiday Recipes with Splenda online actually.

                                Having diabetes is not the death sentence it was once known to be. Much research has given us new tools to better manage this disease and live almost normal lives now. See if they will set up an appointment for you with a nutritionist to help you work meal plans to fit your lifestyle.

                                The best thing to learn to do is to learn to eat about 5 small meals a day spread out. 2 can be snacks actually like half a piece of fruit when they allow it back into your diet. Learn to eat whole grain foods and cut out all the processed junk and greasy fast foods. If you love fried foods cut back some.

                                Try gradual changes in your diet such as learning to eat more steamed veggies with a little seasoning. Use Sea Salt instead of table salt. Make good use of your herbs and spices. Reduce the starches to one per meal gradually if your sugar is not too much out of control. Cook with heart healthy oils!

                                In either case check your blood sugars often and religiously. Good control of your blood sugar is a must. This disease can affect every other vital organ in your body. Your eyes and teeth can be affected, kidneys, heart, liver, lungs etc.
                                You will be more prone to cavities and gingivitus and vision problems so take good care of yourself!

                                Begin a program of exercise if you do not currently exercise regularly to keep your circulation working right. Poor circulation is very common and you can lose limbs from it down the road.
