Well I'm glad I got everything off my chest before!!! Liz (check out her amazing blog) got me moving.. she was just in a baking rut too, and well.. if she could get out of it, so can I!!!!

I Think that i've just been so overwhelmed witheverything lately that I havent had much incentive to cook. I did in fact make more of those
applesauce bars... theyre originally from Vegan for One's blog. Check out her blog because it too is pretty danm inspirational!!! Theyre probably my favorite because of these reasons:
1) Im allergic to
 soy... and most bars contain lots of soy... I CANT EAT THEM :(
2) They're fast, easy, and convenient to take on the run
3) They're filling! I swear just one is a good enough lunch or mid day snack for me
4) They're chewy: I hate when "bars" are too crunchy.. they are seriously perfect!

and those are 4 reasons why everyone should make these bars!!!

OK SO! I decided I needed a day for myself. I was supposed to go to the Yankee Game with my mom tonight, But I dont feel so great, and I wasnt in the mood to go into the city, be surrounded by drunkards, and sit outside in the cold... (girly of me? perhaps, but its all good :) My mom ended up taking my cousin Rick. He's 15, a die hard yankee fan, and sooo excited to be going to a game... so it all worked out in the end :)

I ended up sitting on my couch watching re-runs of  "So you think you can dance" Im obsessed 
with that show, so when I saw that there was a marathon on, I was HAPPY!!!!!!!

I cant wait to get back to
 dancing every day. Since school is FINALLY over, It will 
give me a chance to get back to BDC and dancing!!!
It also made me miss the ROCKETTES!!! I havent posted any pictures of the show.. so here are some the our swing took from back stage!!!

 I was center!!! It was amazing, and scary, and fun, and humbling, and I REALLY HOPE I GET TO DO IT AGAIN!!!!!

so heres some Rockette info for ya...

The Radio City Rockettes are not just based in NEW YORK! Believe it or not there are in fact 4 casts that perform the show (the same show) in cities through out America. Last year I was in Costa Mesa California, and Phoenix Arizona. It was amazing and really awesome to be in the warm weather during christmas!!! We are all considered equals.. being in the outside show does not make you a "second string rockette"!!!!
2008 is going to be a fabulous year. We will be performing in New York (of course), Chicago, St. Louis, Buffalo, Cleveland and Nashville, as well as a tour that will be visiting 18 arena's through out 18 cities in Middle America!!!!! Its going to be great.... so please go and see it if you can.... you can check the Radio City Web Site to see if we will be in a city near you!

Ok now that I have done some shameless promoting I will talk about dinner last night with Anthony!!!
One of my FAVORITE places to eat is Ruby Tuesdays... they have an amazing salad bar that is always fresh and full of great veges and fruits. Among my favorites are edamame, zucchini, sunflower seeds,  and portobello mushrooms!! I always make a HUGE salad (and anthony makes fun of me) But i will not lie,, I make a MEAN salad!!!

For lunch today I was craving a great fruit salad.. mom had just gotten home from the market with my favorite fruits!!! Mango, Strawberries, Kiwi, Apples, Bananas, Watermelon, and Pineapple!!

I reached for the mango, kiwi, banana, strawberries.. and suprisingly enough Pumpkin seeds!!! They give a lovely crunch to it.. I could honestly have them in anything!

SO thats all for now.. I actually made some stir fry for dinner, but by the time I was done making it I wasn't hungry hahaha.... sounds stupid but hey ill eat it later!

Thanks for your comment on my blog :)

The gummies I bought weren't sour unfortunately - they were coated with sugar.

According to PETA's I Can't Believe It's Vegan list of foods, Sour Patch Kids are in fact, vegan. It's great new for me since I love those things!

P.S gorgeous pictures!!!
Right now my favorite style of dance is contempory/modern. I've only started doing this style last year but I think jazz is what i'm most familiar with.

Glad to hear you love the applesauce bars!! I usually make them before school because they're so quick to put together. =) You got out of that baking rut fast, yay!!

hey! thanks so much for commenting on my blog! :D

anyways, you asked about amaranth:
it's basically just a litte yummy grain that you can find at most health food stores. some supermarkets have been starting to carry it too!

It tastes kinda nutty, sort of like quinoa

Here's a lovely article all about amaranth:

hope that helps!
