I don't think I realized just how large (no pun intended) the Band community was. So many of you have offered me supportive words and good advice and I haven't even gone under the knife yet. I barely know you, dear readers, and I already don't want to let you down! Imagine the pressure and and guilt you'll be able to inflict upon me 6 months from now! Every day will be like Sunday dinner at mom's house!
Last night Husband (H), Daughter (D) and I went out for dinner. I always look forward to Saturday night dinners because most weeks, that is usually the one meal a week I am guaranteed to eat out of the house (both H and I love to cook so we eat most meals at home).
Since D turned about 9 months old, dinner out is typically at a local Mexican joint where the margaritas are strong, the extra sour cream is free, the food comes fast and furious and the waiters stop by enough times to tickle D and say “ohh, niña bonita” that H and I don't have to spend our entire meal doing the monkey dance to keep her entertained.
Last night however, I felt a little “triste” while eating my carnitas tacos. I kept thinking about all the things I was going to miss – the chips and salsa, the warm flour tortillas, the cheese enchiladas that, I swear, must contain some kind of illicit drug they are so addictive.
The next thing I know I'm falling quickly into what H calls a “crazy spiral” thinking about all the things I will be LOSING, by getting The Band instead of what I'll be GAINING.
Its hard to see the big picture when you have guacamole with big avacado chunks sitting at your table – not to mention the staff singing Feliz Cumplea᷈ños to a 75 year old man with a sombrero on at the table next to you.
So, even though you all barely know me and you are under no obligation to spend your time answering questions that may seem silly to you or even worse, may make you HUNGRY – I was wondering if you could take some time to share with me some of the things you CAN and DO eat that you find yummy and wonderful?
Truly, there is only one thing on the planet that I am not fond of and it is mayonnaise. Honestly, even writing the word down kind of signals my gag reflex so tuna salad, egg salad, deviled eggs and other mayonnaise-y friends need not apply. Besides that, the food world is my oysters Rockefeller.
Thank you in advance and keep the words of wisdom coming. You guys are awesome.
