Whew! Test is O-ver! Yay! It went well enough as a hard Biochem test can go. We shall see come Wednesday (or worse case, a week from now).
After Food Science, Cara invited Kelsey and me over to her house again for lunch. It’s nice to hang out in a comfortable room. If you’d like to see what Cara (and her living room) are like, here is a wild video she made with her roommate late one night: Dino DNA + the Jurassic Spastics.
For lunch today I packed a huge pile of vegetables. Mixed greens, peppers, carrots, broccoli, tomatoes tossed in some fig balsamic vinegar and topped with some cottage cheese.
(The rest of the cottage cheese)
Plus a small sandwich of smoked salmon mousse from Saturday’s party on GH “French Toast” bread. And a few mixed greens and dill.
Some strawberries + kiwi (and I’m saving another half cup or so for Foodservice fruitcapades!)
A sparking water
And two Hershey’s kisses amongst dinos for dessert. I had to fight them for the chocolate!
I’m still kind of hungry. I think I needed more sustenance in my salad. I was also starving around 11:30 today. I think the test drained me of glucose + glycogen! I might dig into the rest of my fruit early. And I’ve got a LaraBar to have for a snack later if I need it.
Off to class #3.

Hooray for the test being over with!!
Diana (Soap & Chocolate) says
Must feel good having finished the test and having eaten such a pretty lunch!
That video is too funny.

Sarah (Tales of Expansion) says
wooohoo, test is OVER!!
that is the wildest video i’ve ever seen. crazy girls!!
good luck with the rest of your day 🙂
Ick i just got back my first biochem test too. wasnt too bad. im sure you did well.
Kath, lunch looks very good. Good to hear about the test!
I tried that type of water and wasn’t a fan. Maybe I need to give another flavor a shot…
I actually read a study recently that showed how intense brain activity (like studying, or working on a really hard project) – makes you MORE hungry than exercise. Don’t remember where I saw it, but if I find it I’ll send you a link!
That sandwich made me drool a little! I posted some new Trader Joes items on my Blog today – they just came out with Crunchy Peanut Butter with Flaxseed. I thought of you!
Strawberries and kiwi= my favorite! Love the dino pic.
gotta get that glucose back to the brain, left over valentines candy will do nicely
Elizabeth (thelongweigh) says

Weekly Bite says
Great looking salad! And congrats on the test!!
I love the dinosaurs, how funny!
maybe you feel like you’re hungry from the sparkling water? The bubbles/fizz in those types of drinks always make my stomach feel “rumbly” or empty.
Glad to hear that your test is over and it went ok.
Sarah (lovINmytummy) says
Your girls are crazy-sauruses.
I’m always full after such a fibrous meal, that then it seems like an hour or so later I feel so EMPTY!
yay for the test being over!
now I want smoked salmon
Awesome looking salad!
That video was hilarious!
Stawberries and kiwis taste so great together!
Hahaha, they are superb!
Looks really nice!
Smoked salmon mousse? YUM
Mara @ What's For Dinner? says
HOORAY for the end of tests!
Yay! Glad the test went well. Those girls are crazy!
Congrats on making it through your test!!
Just thought I’d let you know that I made a new kale lover in this world, by introducing her to kale chips. 😀
What a creative mind you have! Love the Dino fight for Hershey Kisses.

Heather McD (heather eats almond butter) says
Glad the test went okay and that’s it’s OVER. Hope you made it through class #3 Kath. Mmm, salmon and dill – always a winning combo!
Oh She Glows says

Is this the girl you said lived in the blue and white house on College? Cause that is definitely my old house! Ah, memories…ask her about the ghost 🙂
The Duo Dishes says
