5 on Friday

Foods I miss dearly.  
  1. Cheese.  Warm  creamy brie, tangy feta, smooth goat cheese on a crisp cracker, stringy mozzarella a top a pizza.  I could go on and on. . .  
  2. Milk.  Cool crisp glass of milk with a warm cookie.  One side effect of the surgeries is that I am now severely lactose intolerant.  You never realize how many foods have dairy in them until you have to avoid them.
  3. Ice Cream.  Soy Ice Cream just doesn't cut it.  It is really just a sad joke.  I almost cried while watching Scott enjoy some Ben and Jerry's Chubby Hubby the other night.  
  4. Vegetables.  Man, what I wouldn't do for some roasted broccoli or asparagus right now.  Hopefully down the road, I will be able to add them back in.  But for now they cause more pain then they are worth.  
  5. Italian Food.  I can't handle any tomato products or dairy.  Think about it, that rules out almost all Italian food.  (Incase you're wondering, tomato burns like no other)

I want to open the FAQ back up. I plan to incorporate them into a weekly Five On Friday.  So. . . let it flow, let yourself go, slow and low, that is the tempo.  (Brownie points to anyone who can name that tune, and Andy you don't count cause you are a freak of nature at this game.)

Slow & Low by the BEASTIE BOYS!
Am I right?

Ah, a Beastie Boys fan! I knew I liked you for some reason...

Now, here's another test: do you [still] have all the lyrics to Paul Revere memorized? Or is that just me...?

Steph said...

Yeah Paula you get the brownie points :)

Brigita~ Hell yes! :)
One lonely beastie I be, all by myself with nobody. The sun is beating down on my baseball hat. The air is getting hot, the beer is getting flat. Lookin' for a girl, I ran into a guy. His name is MCA, I said howdy, he said Hi.

Nope definitely no just you ;)

I feel so awful that you can't have those things. I remember when I couldn't taste anything for a week due to a cold I was going INSANE! The stuff you just don't appreciate until it's gone....

I have seen pictures from this colondar somewhere before. The pictures with the blue silky material. It's touching and beautiful. Do you know what the tatoo a couple of the girls have represents? The star tatoo.

I hope you are feeling a little stronger and your days are a little brighter.

Much love Steph, Aunt Deb :=}

P.S. So far no job, so if you need company give me a call.

Hey there,
I miss those foods too - especially vegetables. I find that weird, too, as I never used to like them. But, now i crave green beans ... so odd. lol! Hopefully we will both be able to eat soon. Hang in there.
