I made a fruit pizza for the 4th. This is a concoction consisting of a sugar cookie dough crust, cream cheese frosting and sliced fruit on top. It was extremely sweet and my party guests did not eat that much of it. No worries! I polished off the rest over the next 24 hours, single-handedly.
And, yes, my blood sugar shot to the moon as a result. I enjoyed every minute of the eating part but the aftermath was not good at all! I had to take a long nap (induced by high sugar numbers) and then drank water at the next day's party, only. (I consider that an NSV as I really enjoyed the company and my giant glass of ice water.) I did enjoy this treat and kept the damage to one 24-hour period.
I learned that summer party guests like beer, grilled meat, cold fruit slices and ketchup. The rest is really unnecessary. As for me, I don't make treats like this very often and with good reason. It's behind me now, time to look ahead.
(Oh, and the mosquitoes enjoyed me greatly as I am covered with July 4th mosquito bites. Ouch! Another reason to watch the sugar intake - less appealing to bugs!)
