So sorry for my lack of breakfast post! I had a hard time falling asleep because I was so excited, so it felt a little too early when my alarm went off! So I was about an hour late picking up Sarah, but we got to Brewberry's around 8:30 all the same.
I had an apple and an Erin Baker Breakfast "cookie":
I really liked this bar! It was just the right size, and great for an on-the-go snack. I was going to pair it with yogurt, but I knew I would get some kind of milky coffee drink so I held off. Oddly enough, I found the bars next to the sweet potatoes at Target! I didn't see them last time I was there, but if I can find them again, I'd love to try out the other flavors.
At Brewberry's, Sarah and I each got cafe au lait's with skim milk and a shot of espresso, with a sugar in the raw packet stirred in. This is my new favorite drink.
I had a grapefruit during poetry...
... and Linda brought treats to class again! Katie held my dum-dum so I could take a photo.
Meal #2 since September in the cafeteria! Woohoo! The spread was pretty good today. I got some cornmeal-crusted seitan (recipe idea!) with pickapeppa sauce, smokey Tobasco, and ketchup; steamed cauliflower with a little lemon juice and pepper; corn salad in a lime-cilantro dressing.
A small bowl of vegetable tortellini soup (which I'm pretty sure was the minestrone from yesterday + tortellini)...
... and red ants on a log!
Carrots 'n' Cake reminded me how much I love ants on a log when she posted her snack a few weeks ago. My mom used to make these for me all the time (with "traditional" ants, aka raisins). She tried to give me "ants on a snowy log" once, using cream cheese, but that didn't go over so well!
I was trying to resist the magic bars all through lunch, but I caved and grabbed one on the way out. However, I through out half (the bigger half!) right away so at least it wouldn't be quite as bad. But it made such a loud sound when it hit the bottom of the trash... those are dense little puppies!
I got so sleepy this afternoon! I already told my mom so she won't be horrified when she reads this, but I took a little nap in my car in the parking lot before class. There's a lot to be said for the power nap!
I'm going to get in bed and watch Monday's episode of Gossip Girl, maybe doze a little... then, back to the grind. But doesn't "the grind" seem so much brighter and happier now? One last hooray! for Obama!
