K and I went to his parent's place for dinner on Sunday. His aunt and uncle were invited, as well.
His aunt (his mother's sister) is diabetic. (this is important)
K's mother made ham, sweet potato casserole, carrots and green beans. Sounds alright until she told us that
- the ham was cooked in the crock pot in a cola concoction containing brown sugar and 2 cans of soda (as well as other ingredients)
- the sweet potato casserole contained brown sugar
- the carrots were flavored with pancake syrup
Yeah. The only dish NOT containing sugar was the green beans!
Then she brought out dessert: Brownies
But not just ANY brownies. Brownies with a layer of marshmallow cream topped with a mixture of chocolate and peanut butter and topped with cocoa Pebbles cereal.
Seriously! This was a complete sugar feast! In my opinion, it was completely unacceptable to serve this meal to a person with diabetes!
I said the same to K on the way home and he poo-pooed me.
Do you folks think I'm over-reacting to this?
