Okay Apryl, I'll do my best to remember your birthday...umm, what can I use to jog my memory? I know, on MY birthday I'll remind myself that yours is the next day!
I don't have to worry about any Super Bowl party delights, but I AM going to a Survivor party tonight (imagine having a party that can't even start until at least 10 pm on a work night, I just might write and complain to CBS
). We're all supposed to bring the one food item you couldn't possibly live without if you were stranded on a tropical island for 40 days - it boggles the mind and I bet there'll be lots of temptation. Seeing that I'm strictly "on plan" at present, I'm bringing a fruit tray (okay, I know you'd probably have lots of fresh fruit if you were stranded on a tropical island, but I don't mind being a party pooper
). I found a low cal and fat free fruit dip that is absolutely delicious - it tastes sinful but is totally guiltless. Okay, it's pretty complicated, but here goes. You take one large carton of fat free sour cream and one package of coconut cream pie filling (not the instant kind, the kind you would normally cook). You pour the pie filling right out of the box into the sour cream, mix well and refrigerate overnight. Presto. It tastes like pina colada and when you dunk a chunk of canteloupe in it's a treat for sure!
Hope you're feeling better soon Holly, drink lots of water to flush it out of your system and gargle with warm salt water (I know, pretty yukky, but plug your nose and take a quick drink of orange juice afterwards - works wonders!)
