This tag is a lament for a pear!
As many of you know I have Type 2 Diabetes - it has been in the family at least as far back as my Great Great Grandmother so has been part of our family for a while now! The good news is - following a review with the Diabetic Nurse, although on medication, it has been reduced and she doesn't need to see me for a whole year now!
A reason to rejoice you might say!! Hmmm, I have given up a lot of my bad habits, helped along by a programme called Choose to Change run by the local heath authority but along with that …I have practically had to give up eating pears! I can share one with hubby every so often but I have found by using my blood test kit that Williams Pears(my Faves)cause my blood sugar to leap!!
It's a big NO to the pear and a firm pointer to an apple instead!
Tim's tag and tutorial is here
I used Tim's techniques on my tag, except that I stuck the cut half of the pear flat and raised the rounded skin part up.
I may have been a bit heavy-handed with the foil but I have sent my pear off in style!!
I will, of course, always remain 'pear shaped'!!
Thanks for looking, Chris
