Food Science lab was all measuring today Can’t wait to do some cooking! We have to do a final project that is some kind of food experiment. I talked to my professor and she loves the idea of testing the effect of different forms of banana on oatmeal consistency! Frozen, sliced, mashed, heated, and no banana. The class will do a sensory evaluation on each type and report differences in gelatinization and texture. I may tweak the variables, but I was happy to hear that oatmeal would work because I am truly interested in this topic!
I may claim to dislike leftovers, but what I love doing is taking pieces of leftovers and creating a new dish. I bring you Tofu + Root Veggie Crouton Couscous Over Spinach!
I put it all on a bed of baby spinach, which steamed as the food heated. On top was a serving of our Near East Curry Couscous plus about 1/2 a cup of leftover potatoes and 1 slab of tofu. Plus some more of those heavenly breadcrumbs!
Plus I had about a half cup of cottage cheese topped with a drizzle of maple syrup and some Quaker Oat Squares –
It was a wonderful and filling lunch!
I’m working on packing for my trip. Here’s my selection of bars + trail mix for the car ride + weekend, plus a sandwich for both my mom and I (ham, swiss, spinach, mustard, pickle) and carrots for tomorrow’s lunch. We’ll probably add an apple each as well.
**My mom and I might eat in downtown Fredericksburg, VA on Monday. Does anyone have any restaurant recommendations?**
I cannot believe this is the exact flight I have taken many times. SO SCARY but I am very glad everyone was OK. It is amazing to hear the passengers’ stories.
