Superbowl Sunday gives everyone an excuse to make a momentary lapse in their resolutions to eat healthy. The potato chips and nachos come out. 10-piece buckets "go boom." Anything that can be slathered with barbecue sauce is slapped on the grill. This year the network news reported on an impending chicken wing shortage for the big game.

Just because you have to deal with T1 diabetes doesn't mean you have to excuse yourself from all the fun. You just have to be smart about it, and remember to take insulin.

Like her daddy, Cassie has a primal love of bacon. What is usually a low carb (but high fat) food has been exquisitely transformed into a magical gastronomical delight by my vegetarian(!) wife. Below is a snapshot of pecan-caramelized bacon appetizers. It's fitting for a night watching the pigskin, as long you bolus properly for it.

Mmmmmm...Caramelized Bacon for the Big Game
