Bee, you gave me this recipe, I just made it last night, it is wonderful. We had it for dinner today. Am going to make a giant crock of it this weekend. It is a definite keeper. To all diabetics reading this, my other 1/2 is a diabetic and when we have meals with barley, he can't believe how low his glucose is after eating, no matter how much of it he eats.

BTW - we have stopped using noodles in our chicken soup and go for the barley. Took a crock to someone's else last night, not knowing she was a diabetic. SHe was thrilled with her glucose level after dinner. That barley is a good thing to eat.

Thank you for sharing that, it sounds yummy. Try this one: Take a sweet potatoe or yam, and micro until baked. Scoop out the inside and take some of the skin, put it into a vita mix, whip with milk and 1 tbs. butter. That's it. Very healthy, and so very tasty. Blessings, M&M

That sounds wonderful. Especially with all the cold and snow outside. Should be a good recipe for weight watchers too. I think the weight watcher diet and diabetic diet have a lot of similarities. thank you for sharing.
