Parmesan Shrimp + Vegetables over Whole Wheat Spaghetti
You can’t go wrong with shrimp stir-fry! We found 2 lb bags of shrimp very cheap a few weeks ago and haven’t remember to use it! Tonight was a simple mixture of 2 oz whole wheat spaghetti, sliced red pepper, broccoli, sugar snap peas, shrimp, and a quick chicken broth and Parmesan cheese sauce (nothing special or fancy there). All topped with a bit more Parmesan and red pepper flakes.
It’s FREEZING here and I had to have hot tea with dinner to try to warm up. Total dinner calories were about 430.
It’s WAY too cold for ice cream, although that’s what I wanted. So I settled for room temperature chocolates – one solid dark and one vanilla creme.
Kitchen Table or Library?
I left campus right after lab – about 3:30 with the intention of working here. I like the mentality of working on campus and coming home to a peaceful house, but the truth is that my house
1) Has clean, nice bathrooms
2) Has a fridge and microwave
3) Has no reason to pack up my computer and haul it into the bathroom because I’m afraid someone will steal it.
I do have the distractions of the husband and my computer, but I have the internet on campus too so it’s really not a huge deal. Plus I was much more relaxed knowing I didn’t have to drive home after dark and rush to make dinner (because we could start on it while I was still working at the kitchen table). I probably get a little less done here, but at least I’m happier in general! If my labs end early I can be home by 4 or 4:30 on M and W and by 3:45 on TTH. And 12:30 on Friday!
So I should probably work at home in the afternoons and at Winthrop in the mornings, which makes more sense.
Here’s my afternoon snack when I got home – the remainder of my trail mix I packed this morning and hot chocolate made with about 9 oz of skim milk and 1 heaping tbsp of Nesquik.
They’re calling for some icy weather here tonight and tomorrow, but I think it’s just going to be freezing cold rain. I’m hoping no ice because I have my first Intro to Dietetics class tomorrow! Snow would be welcome, but not ice. Bleh.
Off to bed!
