This arrived in my Inbox shortly before class:
NUTR 371 canceled today
Sweet! I’m now at home sipping a cup of hot tea in my slippers and hoping to knock this semester nutrition project off my to-do list for good.
But going back to campus… here’s what I packed for lunch.
A romaine, carrot, POM, hummus (it’s hidden in the lettuce), caper (sorry Fancy!) and blue cheese salad with some vinegar on the bottom for flava. This was the last of that giant hunk of blue cheese I got at BJ’s. It turned out to be pretty economical!
Plus my newest invention: a cottage cheese, pumpkin + honey-cinnamon sandwich on High 5 bread! It was excellent. I just spread a quarter-inch thick layer of the goods on there and drizzled with honey and a sprinkle of cinnamon. It did get a TAD bit soggy on the pumpkin side, but that was OK.
And grapes –
I ate while I worked on this paper. Crankin’ it out.

Here’s a link to a coupon for $1.00 of any two packages of Quaker Oatmeal!
OK, back to my project. It’s all downhill from here. Just Organic in the AM and the weekend begins! Too bad I have a ton of studying to do this weekend, so next weekend can be wide open – we’ve got company coming for an exciting reason – more details TBA!
wow that sandwhich combo sounds GOOD! I bet it would be good with pumpkin butter too huh?
good luck with the homework and projects! I have a Nutrition test tonight and project to work on this weekend too.
Do you have to take Organic II? Or just 1 semester of it? I just signed up for Chem 1 next semester (gulp).
Yay for cancelled class!!
Kath, I really love your sandwich Ideas!! I would never, I mean never think of those ideas.
Good luck on the paper

that sandwich sounds good. i cant eat much pumpkin though, i think im mildly allergic. my throat gets all scratchy and its hard to swallow. i still eat pumpkin pie though!
Classes getting canceled (before you actually get there to find a note on the door) are the best.
That sandwich is an interesting combo. Looks good 🙂
Hmmm I might have to check out that sandwich combo – sounds different but good!
OH my sweet sandwich….YUM!
Cottage cheese & pumpkin sandwich eh? Too bad I just used up the last of my cottage cheese for lunch today, otherwise I might have to try it. Looks mighty interesting, as does the salad (minus those capers!).
oh gosh, how can you leave us hanging like this!! I want to know the exciting reason!! : )
Home with tea sounds so good right now 🙂
And what a great sammie idea! I love sweeter sandwiches. Have a great afternoon 😀
Oh yum… I totally eat that same combo spread onto rice cakes!! …and sometimes just on it’s own. Yay for cancelled classes!!
What an interesting sandwich combo! I think I need to get more creative with my pumpkin!
And I’m curious about this company you’re having…must you leave us in suspense?!
Betsy in Pittsburgh says
I can’t deal with cliffhangers! I’m such a spoiler!
lets make guesses! im guessing larbs is engaged!?
What a great sandwich idea! I definitely want to try this!
Yea for no class!

I love cottage cheese on toast with a sprinkling of pepper. Very yum.
Nothing better than a surprise canceled class!
Hey Kath, you’ve got a lot of buzz around here, check my latest post about pledging to feed the hungry based on # of comments, I’d love to have you participate!
for the love of peanut butter says
congratulations on no class today, Kath!!
Have a good one!!
I used to LOVE getting those “class is cancelled” emails!! It’s like bonus free time!
2 things for you: 1) where oh where did you get that great lunch bag? and 2) I cut open my first pomegranate yesterday, and the seeds were brown. Blah.
thanks for the coupon link 😀
You have to try that sandwich toasted sometime!! I love taking the cottage cheese (or ricotta), sprinkle with cinnamon and place on pc of toasted bread, then on the other pumpkin butter, heat under broiler until warmed then smooshhhh together into goodness!!
A sweet sandwich?? The sweetest I’ve ever made is pb and banana- how sweet is it with the cottage cheese in there? Hmmm. I know I’ve said this before, but I LOVE your lunch bag. I severely need one. Do you recommend it?
Gotta agree with Fancy about not being a big caper fan, haha, sorry. I’m glad you get some unexpected time to finish up that project- thanks for the coupon!!
Isn’t it the best when class is canceled!?! 🙂
A little self-promotion… 1 hour left until the end of the Stonyfield giveaway on my blog!

Yummmm to that sandwich. Such good food ideas. I must try.
And has anyone seen the eggnogn or similar teas out? I haven’t seen them anywhere. If you have, where oh where? Thx!

I just finished lunch and I’m trying not to open/buy perishable items as I’m leaving town tomorrow (which would mean a new can of pumpkin & carton of cottage cheese)… but I’m really having a hard time not rushing to make one of those sandwiches right now!
ahhhh i want to know now!!! i’m excited to find out your news!!!
i am so obsessed with my builtny bag and if they had a bulk discount for 10 or more bags i seriously might buy them for everyone i know! i LOVE that you can toss them in the washing machine!
What a fabulous sandwich creation!
Oh She Glows says
Oh I used to love when classes were cancelled!! I miss being a student!
That sandwich looks interesting, but pretty delicious. Most importantly the bread looks fabulous. Good luck getting the project complete!
Ange C. says
Pom question! Are the pom seeds supposed to be crunchy? Or soft? Mostly dark red? Or light red?
I can’t tell if the pom seeds i’m eating are good or not….they’re kinda grassy, maybe. Advice?!
I don’t like pumpkin by itself – seems weird in a sandwich! Although I am going to try a pumpkin butter to go with my BSI ingredient tonight!
You have inspired me to try a pumpkin and ricotta cheese sandwich now! Great idea!
Mmm, you had such great eats today!
Cancelled classes are the best surprises! Plus you got to come home early and relax!
That sandwich looks really good, I would have never thought to put those on a sandwich!
Julia (Santa Barbara Dreaming) says
ahhh! Gotta love it when classes get canceled! 🙂
Creative sammie combo! Great ideas to use up the rest of my own pumpkin can! nice!
Have a great evening Kath!
Pom seeds taste like grass to me too and I do not like the crunch…was it just my pom? Or is that really how they are?
I love pumpkin and cream cheese:) In fact I am known for my pumpkin cheesecake! yummers
I think capers are great!
Nice to have the extra time since your class was cancelled!
Too be honest, the idea of pumpkin eaten like that seems a bit gross at first… but hey, weird concepts like that often end up tasting awesome!
Hooray for lunch at home!!
Thanks for the coupon link!!
Jen (Running with Food) says
What a great sandwich invention! It looks and sounds fabulous! Can’t wait to give this one a try! 😉
Hooray for cancelled classes!
Oh She Glows says
Kath, how would you describe the taste of that sandwich? I am having a hard time picturing it!
How do you make your oatmeal? I see your bowl every morning and it definitely looks so delicious. I’m glad that you include what you put in it each time, but could you include your basic recipe? Like, do you mash the banana, or puree it, or chop it into pieces? Do you cook it with the banana and all the other stuff in it, or do you just add it as a topping? Do you mix in the peanut butter? Stuff like that 🙂
I want to make a delicious bowl of oatmeal Kath-style, but I need some help!
WAIT, KATH, OMG.
Did you read my post from yesterday? This was my sandwich:
peanut butter, banana, whipped cottage cheese, pumpkin and pumpkin butter on whole wheat.
Talk about great minds think alike (although I hate that expression).
Your sammie looks fantastic! Thanks for the great idea!
Don’t you love it when classes are cancelled?!?! What a wonderful sandwich idea!!
Just one semester – thank GOODness!
Checking it out…
Dark red and yes, they are kind of grassy. With a little chewy pit inside.
Oh She Glows,
Just the flavors combined – no other way to describe it.
Everything you need to know:
Cool!! You must have sent me vibes 🙂
