Do you guys go through weeks of the month when you’re just not hungry? I totally do. I think it’s part of being female. Some weeks I am ravenous and other weeks my usual meals leave me uncomfortably stuffed. I was expected to get hungry soon after my lighter lunch today and really didn’t! I had an Amazing Grass bar at 5PM and at 8 still wasn’t really hungry. It always catches me off guard.
Here are my packed snacks for the afternoon + evening of classes –
Amazing Grass Peanut Butter bar (which Jenna gave me!), persimmon, Frog Hollow Farm peaches and a few almonds. I ate a few peaches and the bar at 5PM and that was it. The bar was great. The Amazing Grass bars are all surprisingly good and not that grassy at all (compared to taking a shot of the juice!) These dried peaches are really growing on me too!
I came home to find the kitchen upturned from a session of beer bottling and chicken broth making.
The happy brewer
He just brewed a batch of a Moose Drool look-alike and was bottling it tonight. WOW – I had a few sips of the non-carbonated sample and it is pretty darn close to the real Montana Moose Drool that we loved so much on our trip.
The chicken stock was made with celery, carrots, herbs and a bunch of chicken stuff from our most recent whole chicken bake. I had planned to have leftovers for dinner, but Matt announced he was having broth and bread for dinner. How appropriate for him 😉
After peeking into this bag and finding a HUGE hunk of sourdough, I decided I wanted broth and bread too!
But when contemplating the broth, I had the idea to stir in an egg and make egg drop soup! I’ve always wanted to make it from scratch. I didn’t have time to research, so I just whisked an egg in a ramekin and slowly drizzled into the hot broth in a pot while stirred. MAGIC!
I actually ended up sharing the bowl with Matt, who was too busy cleaning to make a bowl and I wasn’t too hungry.
But I did manage to eat all of my bread! It was as good as I imagined and I had a nice doughy sour hunk!
Probably going to start my tumor research now, but won’t be staying up as late tonight! Tomorrow will be spent writing all day since I have the night off from class.
