Searching for the perfect recipe!!!

In a desperate move to straighten out my head and receive confirmation on my crazy life I have chosen to fast today. Unfortunately, my body vehemently opposes the entire concept. I experience many crazy things like a drastic drop in sugar levels and the ability to dream up what food I would want to be chewing right now... for example, the only thing on my mind right now is the Queensland Salad from Outback Steakhouse or the Crispy Chicken Salad from Famous Dave's. They both sound fairly mouthwatering right now. I'll have to concoct a recipe that will imitate those tastes though right now I can pick up some chicken tomorrow night and maybe experiment on Sunday. Any ideas?! For now I'll search through the Internet to find something that sounds remotely close.

The best part about the fasting is to see hubby be so supportive. He can't go tonight because he has to close the store and our youngest is not yet twelve. they are going to head out to dinner together and hopefully have a good time. Anyway...hubby didn't want to eat in front of me so he went home for lunch so I wouldn't be tempted.

Oh, and if you were wondering our customer count has picked up in the past few days. We are definitely going to make it through this mess.

Look after yourself. Don't dehydrate or let your metabolism slow down too much.

I'm glad to hear the store is picking up! Fasting is one of the hardest things for me too. I get nautious if I don't have stuff in my stomach, so fasting is the antithesis of an empty stomach. I have made it through though and I'm glad to see that you made it!
