Hello from the Bojangles’ eating area at Charlotte Douglas Airport!! Our airport is the coolest because we have FREE WI-FI and rocking chairs 🙂 And lots of good eats – including the only Jamba Juice for hundreds of miles! I always try to get one when I travel. I planned today’s to be part of my lunch. I got a Strawberry Banana one. I like Jamba a lot, but it’s no Smoothie King!
The rest: a smallish peanut butter + pumpkin butter sandwich and some carrots.
And I’ve got this guy:
Plus trail mix and bars galore for snacks
You may be wondering how my smoothie fits into the Thanksgiving Challenge. Well, this is a business trip for me. KERF is a small business! And we were given some funds to get us to and from our homes for taxis, luggage fees, etc. There’s just enough to cover some airport food and a few weekend cocktails 😉 Since I did not choose this trip for leisure, I think it’s fair to put the meals I have out toward my “client.” But I did bring most of my lunch, and you can be sure the husband is following all the rules at home – he’s got his 5 lb bag of potatoes to play with this weekend and will be grocery shopping for the coming week as well.
This morning’s organic test was somewhat of a disaster 🙁 Seriously. I was quite upset when I left and luckily my prof told me there would probably be a curve. I hope it’s a big one. I was very prepared for this test, but it was just that. hard. Thanks so much for all of your nice comments and wishes this morning though!
Gotta go do my Foodservice School Lunch Menu while I wait for my flight. Hopefully I can work a mile high as well.
PS. The couple beside me is typing an email in Japanese (or at least I am pretty sure that’s what it is)! She’s logged into Yahoo but her keyboard is set to Japanese. So cool!
See you in the Windy City!
