Snacking when bored

Hungarian Cabbage Rolls

4. Do you speak any other languages?
Not fluently.  I can get by traveling in Spanish or Italian speaking countries though.
5. How do you manage to eat healthier while eating out?
I choose options with less sauces or fried components.  That isn't tough though because my palate has come to a place that I don't really want them anyway!
6. Who has been the most supportive person in your life?
This is tough because I think you lean on different support systems throughout the various phases of your life. 
7. What is your favorite genre of music?
8. How long have you been blogging?
5 Years
9. Why did you start blogging?
I started blogging strictly as a way to connect to family while we were raising our son, who is now 4 1/2. The families didn’t use MySpace or Facebook, nor did I, so this was the easiest way for me to share. With the advent of more and more internet social sites, I haven’t found blogging for the family connection quite as necessary. I started using it as an outlet for myself really. The blog evolved into Susan Today because that was what I would write about, whatever was on my mind that day. I talk about things that I would talk about with my friends.
