Matty. Thanks for your appreciation. During our 8 years of marriage, hubby has been deployed 5 years of it. Most people don't understand that, to be a military *wife*, you have to be a MARRIED single person! LOL
There is ONE oriental store here that's bigger than a phone booth, and it doesn't carry a lot of fresh produce or meats. More canned squids and noodles and soy. A HUGE selection of cookware and dishes... but not food worthy at all.
I am seriously even having issues with getting meat shipped here. Every place is too far away (or WAY too expensive) to ship. I've been looking into going on a trip to NM as I believe I've found a farm or two I could get some meat from. I can get to a Whole Foods store in Albuquerque (spelled without looking up! **thumbsup**) but it is a 9 hour drive round trip. I would need to do a severe prep for a trip like that.
Also, for those who keep commenting on going *easy* on the nuts, I ALSO use nuts to make homemade NUT MILK. My son, who seemed to be lactose intolerant until he turned 3, drinks gallons of nut milks. He also adores nut butters. And again, if using nuts to keep my kiddo interested in eating healthy, I still say To Each His Own.
