Greetings! Chem is ALMOST OVER!!! We convinced our prof to give us another take-home test . We really do learn more going over and over the material to make sure we get the questions than we would spend studying, so I’m in favor. Certainly makes my life less stressful. I’m skipping lab this Thursday too in exchange for Americana at the Symphony!! I’ve already earned 900 of our 800 lab points, so what’s the point in going?! I might be too chicken to skip both of the last ones though. We’ll see!
On the way uptown I whipped out my emergency trail mix (or I guess it’s "Trex mix" to be proper) and had 2 handfuls. I was pretty hungry after my workout and the strawberries did not suffice.
An hour later, I had the best packed dinner! The gazpatcho was fabulous a day old – I can’t wait to make this again. It’s a great food to have in the fridge for the week and doesn’t need reheating or anything. I topped it with some avocado , and the chickpeas on the bottom made nice chew.
Plus a piece of leftover flatbread -
And a yogurt + some granola . When I have "lunchy" foods like yogurt for my early dinners, they hold me over SO much longer than a normal dinner of veggies + grains + entree. Maybe it’s the higher protein content?
With sparkling water (a new kind from Costco) at a picnic table with my lab-mates.
We actually got out a little early tonight! It’s so nice to be able to walk to my car while it’s still light out. I had an Honest-Foods Cran Lemon Zest bar on the ride home. It was the last of the 4 flavors to try. While I liked it a lot, I’m not really a big lemon person, but if you ARE a lemon person, you’d love this, as the lemon flavor is very authentic.
By request, there’s now a "New Products" category where I’ll put new foods the first time I try them. Hope it’s helpful! I added some of my recent finds earlier today.
Getting in bed on time tonight for an early morning run!!
