Memories from the Mountain

January 30, 2012

This weekend I went skiing (surprise surprise) with my dad, uncle and cousin.  There were supposed to be lots more joining us, but stomach bugs and colds had the upper hand.  As a kid, I always had noodle soup for lunch on ski days.  I still have it quite often, but sandwiches or other lunch forms are okay now as well.  I was thinking about it skiing down the mountain when I went with my dad and “the boys.”  “the boys” are my father’s brothers and cousins.  I think I was about 12 years old.  We bought lunch on the mountain (big deal!) and I wanted a bread bowl.  I decided to have clam chowder instead of chicken noodle too.  It was the same amount of soup that I usually have, so imagine our surprise when later that afternoon I was in the 400s!  Neither of us knew that chowder “broth” had carbs in it.  Why would we?  Needless to say I took a lot of insulin and I think that I got clam chowder in normal bowls until I got a pump.  (I’m not entirely certain though, because it IS delicious) especially during a ski day.

Saturday reminded me of the original day.  Although there were a lot less people, and I wasn’t the youngest, and now I know how food is made (or at least the amount of carbs are in it).  Either way, both days were amazing and I’m so glad that I have so many wonderful people in my life, especially on the ski slopes.
