Tasty Tuesday Tuna Mornay.

Tonight I cooked Tuna mornay for tea so thought I would post the recipe I used and the carb factors.

Now that Tom is on a pump we need to count every bit of carb going into his body. The way this is done is by working out the total carbs in the recipe and then weighing the food. If the food weighs 2kg and has a total of 300 carbs then we divide 300 into 2000 and get a carb factor of 0.15.

If Tom eats 200 grams then he has a total of 30 gram's of carbs.

Simple maths (when you have a calculator). I am working out the carb factor for all my recipe's and writing it down in a little book that I am keeping in the kitchen by the scales. It is a lot of work now but once I have most of our recipe's I will only have to weigh Tom's food.

Tonights recipe:

1 can of Tuna in Springwater.
2 medium onions
1 can of creamed corn.
1 can of corn kernels.
500 grams of mixed frozen vegetables.
2 cups of milk.
50 grams plain wholemeal flour.
2 tablespoons of oil.
1 packet of Dried French Onion soup.

Heat the oil in a large frying pan and cook the onions. When the onions are turning clear add the flour. Mix to make a think paste. Add a little bit of milk at a time and mix until it disappears into the paste. Keep adding milk until all is added. Add the tuna, mixed vegetables, corn, cream corn and french onion soup. Bring all to the boil and simmer for 15 min.

Serve with rice or pasta.

Carb factor is 0.18 per gram.

Our sons Tom and Christopher and our daughter Amelia are type one diabetics. We pray everyday for a cure. We do not want one by illicit means though so don't support any organisation that contributes to Embryonic Stem Cell Research.
