I am stressing out tonight because I revisited my course plan and found a glitch that would mean I can’t do my Dietetic Internship until Spring of 2011, which would leave me idle for a few semesters just waiting around until I have the letters by my name to work in the industry. It wouldn’t be the end of the world since I have to use an extra year to finish my masters, but it’s really putting a kink in my plans to work as an R.D. during that year and the summers between. This all depends on one class being a pre or co-requisite for another, so I’ll have to wait and see what happens.
At the advice of tfh, I did in fact go get a cup of hot tea before class 🙂 Funny thing was the coffee shop was so hot that I warmed up without it! But it was still tasty. I got some decaf Earl Gray and used a splash of whole milk for creaminess.
I came home and remembered the new box of Kashi GoLean Crunch we picked up at Costco this weekend. I have never bought the crunch version of GoLean because it was so much higher in calorie than the original, but I’ve been seeing it on blogs lately and had a craving for a super crunchy new cereal to change up my usual H2H and Fiber Worms, so decided I’d get it and treat it like granola – for a super crunchy topping to things rather than a measly cup for breakfast. It’s great!! But I think I ate too much, because my stomach is kind of having pains. Maybe too much fiber 🙁 I had about a half a cup in this bowl….and another half cup from the bag 😳
We made a superb dinner tonight!! Apple-Cheddar-Bacon Frittata and Maple Garlic Snap Peas.
- 1 slice bacon
- 1/2 large apple (about 1/2 cup chopped?)
- 5 eggs
- 2 tbsp milk
- 2 slices swiss cheese, diced (or just use shredded)
- 1/2 cup shredded cheddar cheese
- Pinch kosher salt
- Preheat broiler.
- Chop bacon into pieces and brown. Halfway through bacon cooking, add chopped apple and cook for several minutes until apple softens.
- Mix eggs with milk, cheddar and salt. Pour over bacon and apple. Cover with swiss cheese.
- Place frittata under broiler (in safe skillet!) for 3-5 minutes, until brown and bubbly.
- Makes 3 servings, each about 300 kcal, or 4 servings at about 225 kcal.
For ~ 3 cups snap peas we used:
- 1 tsp canola oil
- 2 garlic cloves
- 1/2 tsp soy sauce (we used tamari)
- 1 tsp maple syrup to drizzle over top when done
- Salt, as usual
We were lazy and ate by the TV 😳
