Glad you are enjoying your UD! :jumpjoy: Are many of those items on your list things you haven't had in a long time? I know there is a sense of wonder and a THRILL at getting to enjoy them again on JUDDD! :jumpjoy: I still marvel sometimes at all the wonderful things I can eat on this woe without guilt. :)
