I can't believe I've been gone this long. I have a confession to make. I am a sick person.
That's it.

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.

I hope you feel better soon! Careful with those Mrs. May's snacks...they can be addicting!

I remember they had them at Costco a couple months ago and I ate the whole bag in one sitting!!! So bad if you're constantly on a diet like me. :(

Thanks so much for all your well wishes! Fortunately I am now 100% better. Thank goodness. I bought the Mrs. mays at Smart and Final, so I was able to to get the variety pack of individual servings. That curttails the problem of gorging my self on nut snacks. Lol.
