It’s been an exciting morning ’round here – I found out my other internship rotations!!!
The really, really good news is that the hour-away rotation at the school system is only for 5 weeks!!! I had thought it was for 2.5 months! I’ve decided that those 5 weeks are the perfect opportunity to download the Twilight series in audiobook form (if I can find it!) and make that commute as fun as possible.
I don’t know if I should get specific on the internet with my rotations, but I’m super excited!! The other 3 are all in Charlotte and the timing of everything looks ideal:
Jan 7- Feb 11 Foodservice rotation at a school system an hour away (5 weeks)
Feb 15- March 5 Community rotation at a health department that’s not too far away (3 weeks)
March 8 – April 2 Community rotation at a wellness center in a great location – I like wellness!!! (4 weeks)
April 5- July 1 The big shebang: clinical rotation the hospital I wanted with my friend Caitlin (and her team that now apparently reads KERF – hello guys!!) (13 weeks)
Orientation starts on January 4th! WOO HOO!
Victoria was sick today, so I decided to workout at my YMCA so I could bike. I had a great workout, including 30 minutes of Stairmaster and 15 of some good lifting (tried to make up for missing Sculpt!)
Came home. Make a crunchy lunch. Since I apparently only eat mush.
Spinach salad dressed in EVOO + agave + salt
Veggies: carrot, purple cabbage, green pepper
Toppings: TJ’s hummus, blue cheese
Plus some leftover Oikos – there was only about 2 tbsp left in the container – with chopped apple, crunchy coconut granola, cinnamon and a tsp of Costco PB
Slow Cooked Frozen Chicken
Two readers pointed out that the USDA says it’s unsafe to put frozen chicken in a slow cooker. I investigated this and emailed my foodservice professor (who is the queen of food safety!) As I hypothesized, the slow cooker allows the chicken to remain in the temperature danger zone (40-140*) for too long since the temperature is just above the zone on low. How sad that we must first thaw in fridge ;( She also added that this would make a great master’s thesis project experiment!
Ship Open Sky
The OS team announces that today is the last day of free shipping. If you’re holding onto a coupon or debating a purchase, today would be the day to act!
Gotta conference call at 3. And house guests – Matt’s fraternity brother and his girlfriend – coming any minute. We’re going out to dinner at a new restaurant. Excited!
