Les, I used to be able to eat a lot, but not anymore or I'd be like you.

Annette Rivera said...

Is there a substitute for whiskey? Sorry, "clean and sober" for over 20 years.

jalna said...

Hi Annette. Sorry, I don't know, but I'll ask my sister Didi and will get back to you.

jalna said...

Annette, here's Didi's response: To me…its kinda a key element….aside from another kind of alcohol, vinegar would be the only recommendation….cider or balsamic…but ½ the amount.
