The Say Low Fat Cheese! Photo And Recipe Link Up

I haven't included guidelines for the Say Cheese! Photo and Recipe Link Up for a while and my only request is to have at least one photo. I love candid shots of humans and critters (or a cheesy pose) and recipes with cheese.

You've gotta watch those Dempsey kids, especially in a bar on St. Paddy's (I'm pretty sure that's a Manhattan)

Bonus points for the cook with a healthy, low cal recipe, because after being diagnosed with type 2 diabetes two and a half weeks ago, I'm looking at food and cheese in a whole new light. (I look at cheese from both sides now, from up and down, and still, somehow, it's cheese illusions I recall, I really don't know cheeeeesssse aaa at all.)

"R" is for real sure this Tex Tubb's bartender is possessed by the devil. Farewell, delicious, calorie-packed tacos

I've been using my tough camera lately so apologies for the poor quality photos.

  1. I hope you checked with the barman first - that is a demonic looking photo!

    1. I was getting enchiladas although he did serve me a delicious upscale soda pop (no more of that though).

    1. I was trying to be sneaky amusing myself by snapping photos which is hard to do with a flash.

  4. Sorry to hear you were diagnosed with Type II diabetes; I'm sure that is quite an adjustment in diet, thinking, and lifestyle.

    1. I was just cleaning out my cupboards for the second time, amazing the junk I found even on the second pass. But you are doing great and I'm sure I'll find it easier to adjust as I go along.

  6. I was recently diagnosed with high cholesterol, so cheese is a thing of the past for me too! :(

    1. I had to go on Pravastatin for that and it really helped. I snuck a shake of parm in my soup yesterday and did it ever taste good. But today I threw out a pack of low fat CoJack I had in the fridge. Good luck to you and I hope we both discover the more nutritious tasty stuff I know that's out there. It is out there, isn't it?

    1. Yeah, Tamar, I have no idea why there were gathered there like that except the ice cream window was open pretty near by.

    1. It is catchy, isn't it? I don't know what diet that is but it sounds very healthy and perhaps involving sand and crab legs. Well, I'm going to have to change that cheese theme I guess. Here's something, La Croix is coming out with three CHEESE FLAVORED sparkling waters. I love your photos and your blog.

    1. That's the kid's Aunty Meghan and she likes this photo too, poor quality and all. Yes, we do love our cheese and have some very excellent cheese at that. I just commented to Kathryn above that La Croix is coming out with three cheese flavored waters, haaa that cracks me up.

  11. Very nice photos. Sad, hearing that you were disgnosed with Type 2. Prayers going out to you. Thanks for hosting and I hope that you have a wonderful week.

    1. It's a good kick in the butt for me and I've already taken to keeping a food diary and am on track weight loss wise. My doctor told me yesterday that my biggest problem was stressing out about it after I presented her with all the info I found online. Big mistake, I think I broke her, lol. She actually told me to stay off the Internet.

  13. I would be happy to help that kid with that drink! (I mostly stick to white wine these days, but a Manhattan was my cocktail of choice back in the bad old days). Bill has T-2 ... it’s is manageable .... cheese is OK. Not sure about the Manhattans ))).

    1. Ha, never leave a Dempsey alone with a cocktail. Are you sure you're not from WI, Sallie? I can NOT tell you how many Brandy Old Fashions and Manhattans I've made in my life, mind boggling. Bill does, well, feel free to pass on any tips, I don't get my Diabetes Education course until June, but you guys are pretty active so that gives me hope. I didn't know that cheese was okay but am presently thrilled to hear that La Croix is coming out with cheese flavored water. I got a book called, "What Do I Eat Now?" delivered today. I used to be able to put away quite the amount of alcohol but it's only the rare fine Irish Whiskey or sip of intriguing micro brew these days.

  14. Look out for these little ones:):) Also love the capture of the cyclists:) Sorry to hear to need to make a life change! My neighbor couple (they both have) diabetes. It's a struggle because they both like to eat!! Hope you meet someone who knows about food - makes it a whole lot easier!

    1. I've done it before, J. and was pretty successful, unfortunately I'm one of those people that eats their feelings and a few huge personal things sent me over the edge. I'm part Italian and they are huge eaters, even the skinny ones of which there are fewer and fewer. The Irish side of the family also struggles with obesity as do so many in the country and the state of WI in particular. I wish your neighbors the best of luck and I think I'm off to a good start, thank you.

    1. Thanks, Rose, I realize that it's only been a few weeks so am pretty sure I'll discover more and healthy and good tasting food as time goes on. My tastes are already changing.

  16. So sorry to hear about your diagnosis :( I'm sure it's a big change for you. I'm so glad you linked up at My Corner of the World!

    1. It is a big change but I've done something similar diet and nutrition wise before so it's a matter of getting back into that mindset. I'm learning more every day and am fairly hopeful I'll be able to keep eating better, exercising more and losing more weight.

  17. So sorry about the Diabetes! :( My husband has that too and still pretty much eats what he wants, in moderation, except for cutting down on sugar. Here's an article about cheese and diabetes you might find useful: https://www.medicalnewstoday.com/articles/317222.php

  18. I love cheese, I just can't eat the stuff (dairy allergy)!
