I’m back a few meals and bites later! This day seems to be so long.
The line-spread test
My lab partner
Control oatmeal (old fashioned with water)
Whipped banana in the making
Kelsey likes textures
The topping: A Great Harvest Savannah Bar! I brought this to share with my classmates to crumble on oats
Second Breakfast! Whipped banana base with about 1/6 of the Savannah bar and a small spoonful of Cinnamon Peanut Butter.
And coffee, which we made in class. From the sound of it, everyone who tasted the oats liked them My professor thought they were great! But I think the Savannah bar was the biggest hit
I also had to taste test the ice creams we made last week. These were variations of corn syrup, stirring vs. no stirring, sucralose, ice cream maker, chocolate (in the middle), etc. I had a tiny spoon of each sample
MORE science. Starches gelled and corn starch puddings. This was a very long and complicated lab day!
Since I knew I wouldn’t need lunch for a while, I went out to run errands after lunch, including a pit stop to Great Harvest to visit the Baker! Perfect timing – he had just started his break and was munching on the most delicious homemade broiled cheese sandwich on a huge crusty bun. I had two bites And per usual, I was fed a few delicious samples of King’s Cake and Rosemary Garlic and decided I would like a loaf of Rosemary Garlic for our “loaf of the shift.” So I brought home this baby –
I wasn’t that hungry from the samples, but I could tell since it had been over 4 hours since my last meal that I was feeling empty. And this bread looked too good to put away, so I made a baked cheese myself! (Much smaller than his though ) Mine had a wedge of laughing cow as the binder.
With the sandwich I baked the last of our washed and prepped kale (Whenever I need some for a recipe I go ahead and wash and trim all of it and store it in a zip lock bag with a paper towel and it’s ready in 10 minutes as chips for a quick lunch).
And feeling like I’d had nothing but carbs all day, I had some more fresh produce
I picked these strawberries up on sale at the Fresh Market when I was out. Strawberries from Florida are SO good right now!
With a seltzer..
I’ve got more to do before I can relax for the weekend….if I can relax this weekend. I’ve got a test and a paper due next week that I haven’t started on yet We’ve got Thank You For Smoking to watch from Netflix and a fun dinner planned.
