Hello.....no, I have not fallen off the face of the earth......sorry for the extremely delayed entry. Life has been VERY busy as I'm sure it is for most of us.
1st off, I can no longer stay at home this summer since we are now buying our own apartment. Actually owning a place means a monthly mortage payment & the board of the co-op looking into our finances greatly. So no slacking off for me this summer! :-( It's worth the sacrifice to be a home-owner though :-D
I've also been cast in a play!!! Nassau Community College production of "The Long Weekend" very funny & I have one of the leads. I haven't acted in 3 years & it feels great. That goes up at the end of June.
3rdly - we have a cat that my husband is very allergic to. We had to save him & we've spent too much money on vet bills (he was run over by a car) to ever get rid of him. So, I have to clean like a mad woman to keep his itching & allergies down. Small price to pay for the fuzzy one.
So between all these things plus being a stressed out teacher, I've had little time to blog. My sincerest apologies. That doesn't mean I've forgotten about BTD. It's a big part of my day, EVERY DAY.

Yes, the whole reason I get to write on here in the first place, lets talk about food. I've had very little time for cooking. Good Puerto Rican husband has been doing most of that. For the most part, my diet's consisted of deli turkey on ezekial bread with yogurt cheese or cheddar. Lettuce would be good on that too if it wasn't always going bad in the fridge. (Carlos calls it our graveyard for vegetables....) Mustard is always yummy but stay away unless it's vinegar free. After being away from vinegar & going back to it one day.....my intestines & stomach we're in knots. & no one wanted to be around me......:-)
Tuna fish sandwiches are also great or sometimes I just make the tuna fish with canola mayo (you can find it at whole foods) & an organic turmaric/salt mix. It's very tastey.
Celery & carrots are my new favorite snack. So easy to just wash, break in half, throw in a baggie & you're off! A natural peanut butter or apricot spread is delicious as well. Just make sure there's no CORN SYRUP. I swear, it is the bane of my existance as an AB.
Carlos was inclined the other day to make a homemade spagetti sauce & turkey meatballs. So good. I don't know what he does to it but it's very good. I will try to post it sometime this month.
Oh & let us not forget soy milk. It's so yummy & so healthy for us AB's. If you've never had it before, as an AB please try to incorporate some into your diet.
Eating out is always a problem with me. It seems that all the places I run into are all or nothing for AB's. I try to eat at home before we go out so in case I really can't find anything I'm not that hungry. Gotta go - play practice in half an hour!!!
