I guess my stomach didn’t want to be as full as it growled it did because I didn’t end up eating my nectarine or my Clif bar. I was full up until noon – and more. Maybe it shrunk.
The US Foodservice tour was very neat – they distribute food to restaurants across most of North and South Carolina and had $33 million worth of food in their facility! Walking through the refrigerator room was so cold – I could never imagine working there. But the freezer room is kept at -20*F and the employees have to wear Eskimo suits to stock and package the products! The bad part was the amount of energy and fuel it takes to distribute the food – $75,000 energy bill per month and gallons and gallons and gallons of diesel fuel per day in trucks that only get 6 miles per gallon. Yikes!
I was lucky to be done with classes at noon today in time to have lunch at home. It’s kind of dreary here today with cloudy skies and not too hot, so I decided to defrost a Split Pea Soup for lunch. It might be leftover from our Easter ham!? Soup is one food that I love having as leftovers. And one food that I find freezes beautifully. Check out this post for the recipe and freezing tips: Split Pea Soup .
Of course I had Kashi crackers on the side
And this morning’s nectarine , which was almost too juicy –
With a little Body + Soul –
After lunch I had a small piece of my leftover chocolate slab from Asheville’s Chocolate Fetish. Of course ALL chocolate is good, but I really think this is the best dark chocolate I have ever had. It could be that I am used to higher percentages of chocolate because it does taste very sweet, but I think this store has nailed chocolate and can’t wait to go back for more!
Can I say it again please!?!?!
