I can't believe I've been gone this long. I have a confession to make. I am a sick person.
You see I contracted a virus when I was 14 that has weakened my immune system permanently. Now I catch pretty much every single virus and infection that comes around. I try to limit my public "exposure" to sicknesses, but . . . Well you know. Crap happens. I can't control where my entire family goes and I can't control what they carry back to me.
So hopefully that explains my absence. I was sick with a bad virus for about two weeks, then felt a little better for about a week, now I have a flaming sinus infection.
So to help with my sick/blogging capabilities I (along with my parents help!) have saved up and bought myself an IPAD!
This is not a christmas present. Nor is it a Hanukah gift. It is simply a "Holy Crap! I have enough, and free overnight shipping! Ahhhhhh!"
Now I can blog from the comfort of the couch, or bed, or anywhere else for that matter. I love it.
As far as baking goes . . . Well let's just say that freezer I stocked has been saving my keister. Usually I can bake while I'm sick, but this one has just knocked me out completely. Hopefully in the next couple of days I'll be able to make a couple more batches of Teff and Brown Rice Oreos. Oh yeah. I haven't told you about those yet. Well maybe that's something else you can look forward to this week. :)
In the meantime, I've been living on deli meat, Sunflower Seed Butter, and these gluten and corn free Asian noodles.
I found these at my local health food store. They come in flavors like Garlic & Onion, Thai Ginger, and Vegetable. But my favorite is the Bangkok Curry. It makes my nose run, which is always good when your sick. Plus it only has 170 calories. I usually add some chicken and broccoli florets to round out the meal. Sooo good!
Ready in 3 minutes. Steam cooked not fried.
I also found these delicious snacks. They are:
And only 156 calories for 6 pieces.
Ingredients: almonds, Rice Malt, Evaporated Cane Juice, Sea Salt
Simple and good.
They come in flavors like Almond Crunch, Pom-raspberry Crunch, Cran-blueberry Crunch, Black Sesame Crunch, and many more.
