Chem lab went really well again today!! Part of the reason I despise labs is the unorganization of not really knowing the procedure and chemicals flying around and trying to find beakers and all that. But this is the first lab EVER that is super organized! Perhaps because it’s also the highest level chem I’ve ever taken. We did Recrystalization followed by melting point analysis, and except for a long line waiting for the melting machine (techincal, huh 😉 ), it was pretty painless. AND I found out that I don’t have to go to lab next week because it’s a molecular modeling lab that we can do on our own time this week. Sweeet! Anytime I can eat lunch at home and not be stuck on campus is great.
I came home around 4:30 quite hungry for a filling snack. This was one of those days when I thought: bar during the commute or huge bowl full of something when I get home? The answer> was obvious – I wanted a filling, crunchy, volumnious yogurt mixture!
- About 2/3 a cup of remaining greek yogurt
- About 1/2 a cup H2H
- About 1/3 a cup TJ’s High Fiber Worms
- Spoonful raspberry jam
But it’s too bad that I SPOILED MY DINNER with fiber and protein, because it took a long time to work up some hunger (even with studying involved!). We ended up eating around 7:30, hunger or no hunger – the husband was ready to eat! It would have tasted better with a bigger appetite. We are working on eating some of our freezer items, so tonight was centered around some frozen ravioli.
Putney Pasta was a new brand to try, and I have to say I didn’t like it nearly as much as Rising Moon Brand, which was more tender and a little lighter nutritionally. But maybe I just didn’t like it because it was ricotta based, and I really don’t like ricotta that much. We have a butternut-maple one to try too, so I’ll cross my fingers for that one. With some parm and S+P:
Plus kale chips!!
And leftover corn on the cob.
After dinner the husband and I finished off Jaclyn’s yummy Jacques Torres chocolates – just little nibbles left! Thanks again for the gift Jaclyn!
I’m hoping to be in bed by 8:30 tonight so I can catch up a little from last night and get up tomorrow for another gym trip.
