Daring Bakers May 2009 Challenge - Strudel!

Hey cute people :)

This is going to be short and sweet..

Unfortunately I had another lil hiccup with my health and spent a few days in the hospital this month. I hadn't made my strudel before I went in and now that I'm home again, strudel just isn't in the cards for me.. I'm now on a fat free, low-carb, no salt diet.. so I am really enjoying sugar-free pudding and tomatoes. :P

I suppose after abusing my body for 40 some years, it had to catch up with me, eh? I'm going to get better though.. and will conquer another DB challenge in the future, but ya'll have to forgive me this month. 'kay? :)

Please make sure to check out the blogroll at The Daring Kitchen and go give Linda of make life sweeter and Courtney of Coco Cooks a lil extra loving for picking such a kick-ass challenge! They were both wonderful hostesses this month and we are forever grateful!!

Bake on Gorgeous Daring Baker Type People! :)

I hope you are feeling better soon! Have been enjoying your blog and fun, uplifting writing style for quite some time. :)

Take a look at my low carb recipes--maybe they'll perk ya up? Been eating that way for three years and pretty much makes you feel amazing. Don't lose heart. Rest up!

I hope you feel better soon! Tomatoes are good. Not such a fan of sugar free pudding though. Let me know if you need anything!

Take care and here's wishing you a "get better quickly".
Health is definitely first priority.
Btw, sugar-free and tomatoes can be good too, just takes a little getting used to. :)

I'm so sorry you got so ill. It's always a bummer to have to spend time in the hospital, even if your care staff is nice. I hope you get well soon.

I've had to watch my carbs since I went gf. As traditional gf eating isn't kind on the carb count. It does take a little while to get used to the change in diet, but once you do, it's hard ot go back to eating the old way.

Get Well Soon!!!!!

You have such a positive outlook on things...that alone will see you through the no-salt sugar free diet. Besides, aren't you glad tomatoes are allowed? Be well! *hugs*

 

Anonymous kellypea said ... (5/27/2009 7:40 PM) : 

Big wet sloppy kisses. Okay, so maybe not. Hugs, perhaps? I owe, owe, owe you my dear. Please get well.

 

Blogger glamah16 said ... (5/27/2009 9:17 PM) : 

Hope you get better. I has to cut the salt too, and should be cutting the other stuff to perhaps. But Im being inventive and getting used to low/no salt. You will be surprised!

Lis, I'm just so glad you're better. So what if you weren't ablr to turn out some strudel dough sheets that looked like Silence of the Lambs skin? :P Mine did, though, and I should have taken a photo when it did!

Anyhoo, when you're eating all that bland food, pretend you have a cold and all that yummy sweet, saltiness and fat is ACTUALLY there but disguised by your stuffy nose ;D
*huge hugs and kisses*

BTW....I'll marry you any day, especially after what that bastard did to me, as he cuddles with his frumpy beeotch.

 

Blogger Jenny said ... (5/27/2009 10:25 PM) : 

Oh dear, I do hope you are feeling better and taking care of yourself!

 

Blogger Barbara said ... (5/28/2009 7:06 AM) : 

Sorry to hear that Lis. Hope you are on the road to recovery now.

 

Blogger Audax said ... (5/28/2009 8:42 AM) : 

Hope you are feeling better soon. More important to get your health into top gear first. Wish you well on the salt-free carb-free and taste-free diet - just kidding it will take you a little while but you will find that you don't need salt and sugar to taste the finer things in life. Get well soon Cheers from Audax.
