Chicken Cacciatore, Guessing Carbs and Oops, Forgot to Test

DINNER - oh yeah. I loaded the crockpot with gold potatoes, carrots, mushrooms, diced tomatoes, spaghetti sauce, onions, eggplant, and garlic this morning. 
The house smelled so delightful when I got home and I was starved!  
We scooped up the yummyness and ate. 

Now comes the hardest parts of counting carbs, putting in the food and estimating what is on the plate and what the program tells you a serving is. I came up with this:
36 g carbs, 29 g protein, about 5g fiber

As I write this is I realize I spaced testing at the 30 minute, 1 hour and 2 hour mark.
UGH UGH UGH SO....
at the 2 and 1/2 hour mark I test.... 102 mg/dL!  Whew!
I am happy with the 102 mg/dL, since I started at 84 mg/dL,  I probably and hopefully didn't get too close to or over that 150 mg/dL mark I have set for myself.

I think I need to use a timer......
