Our Food Comp classroom is always FREEZING , like around 60* or something, so I usually eat lunch outside to thaw for our 15 minute break. But today I wanted to socialize some with the other girls, so I decided to eat inside. But I ran and checked my email first, which threw me off and left only 10 minutes to eat. And I totally forgot to take a picture of lunch !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! This is only the second time in almost a year I have forgotten to take one.
So here’s a reenactment :
I had Salmon Salad with half a can of salmon, 1 carrot, 1 celery, 1/4 a green pepper, 2 tbsp capers, red curry powder, dijon mustard, and 1 tbsp plain yogurt. It looked like this!
I also had one of the husband’s Wheat n Flax bagels , just plain and sliced. A pretty good representation:
And a plum(b!)
Today’s lab was not edible – we made all kinds of starch thickeners and tested the "gel-ability": corn starch, tapioca, arrowroot, potato and AP flour.
The "Line Spread Test" to see how far it spreads –
Tomorrow’s lab is an "eating day" – whole grains!
Lab got out a little early so I decided to go to Winthrop’s gym for a workout. I did 45 minutes on the ET and about 12 of lifting . This was my first time in the weight room there. It’s really nice (and new!) and has the Free Motion cable equipment that I like a lot. I’m going to try to exercise there more this fall when I have time to kill on campus between an early morning and late afternoon class.
Once home, I had 2 giant strawberries –
And in 5 minutes I’m turning around again to go uptown for Chem. I’m meeting my lab group early, so I’ve got to be there at 4:30. It’s gonna be a late night too. Plowing through!
