Lunch was kind of thrown together yesterday as I prepped for my double tests and Micro, but it turned out quite delicious!! Of course going to EarthFare would have been easier since we are low on lunch foods (and fruit – see below) but I decided to pack one instead since I already made one trip to EF this week.
I put some leftover baked (plain) tofu on one of the husband’s homemade buns, along with a Laughing Cow, some raspberry jam and a few chopped walnuts for a sweet sandwich. It was great!
I ended up eating it in pieces to savor it –
I also packed a greek yogurt container that only had about 1/3 a cup left – but lots to scrape off the sides!! I love finishing off big tubs of yogurt. Normally the dehydrated yogurt “cheese” on the side would gross me out, but for some reason this is the ONLY kind of dried-out food I can eat. I dumped in about a quarter cup of stale chocolate granola from OhNuts.com. I like it stale though – it’s chewy!
Lastly, we are flat out of fruit in our house. I can’t have lunch without fruit!! So I picked up an orange from the union on my way to class this morning. I was going to get a fancy fruit cup for $2.59 but then I decided the orange was only about $.75 and a better deal. It looked kind of gross, but on the inside of the peel it was a great orange! I always want to eat the apples they have too, but they are just sitting open to the air and I never have a sink to wash them well….
Seltzer too. I should be sipping plain water, but these make a packed lunch SO much more fun!
All lined up before their execution in my mouth 🙂
STUDENTS: I found this awesome website for online flashcards. I was searching for Organic chem functional groups to study and came across it. There are already tons of flashcards made by other people in the world and you can search for your topic (luckily someone had already done functional groups!). OR you can make your own. Then you can learn them multiple ways – typing in the answer>, flashcard style, tests with multiple choice and true/false, and even 2 corny but helpful games.
I might seek out some hot tea because I am freezing!!!!!!!!!! Must be that iced coffee that set the tone for the dayBut that would require hauling all of my stuff over there, so I’ll probably just stay put (and cold!) next to my classroom.
Seven years ago, I was a freshman at Davidson, still asleep, when my friend Snakey came into my room and said a plane had crashed into the Pentagon. I pictured a tiny commuter plane making an emergency landing in the parking lots. But when I heard commotion next door in the lounge, I went to join the crowd gathering. A plane hit the first tower. Then we all watched live as the second plane hit, and later when the towers crumbled to the ground. I had goosebumps that lasted all day that day, and still get them when I think about what happened. Take a moment today to hum some patriotic music to honor our country and those who lost their lives on September 11.
