Variations on a theme

Good evening poppets! Sorry about the delay; the internet in my house wasn't working all day (so much for that $20/month WiFi...).

Lunch from the club:

L-R: pineapple, honeydew, canteloupe, grapes, strawberries, artichokies, red and yellow peppers, red snapper (too "fishy" tasting so I only had half), cukes, beets, cured beet/horseradish smoked salmon.

Dry English muffin with strawberry jelly:

Darjeeling tea- I usually drink this with milk and sugar, and it tasted a little strange to me without it.

Bite sized desserts! They call these "prayer bars;" magic on left, three-layer fudge (DELICIOUS) on right:

Dinner was leftover-based, but completely different from last night's. I only used a little spaghetti, and at the very last minute added two big kale leaves so they were soft but not wilted. I heated some of the squash in the microwave, tossed it with the drained pasta/kale mixture, and grated fresh parmesan on top.

I also had a Morningstar Farms sausage patty for extra protein:

Yogurt/honey/ banana dessert:

I'm in a very florescent room in the library, with a stack of the work I need to get done and a little help from my friend Mr. Bull.

I'm only now regretting the relaxing weekend I treated myself to... hopefully tonight won't be too brutal. I only hope I can keep myself awake long enough to get things done!

good luck getting work done! I was not very successful with that myself :( But, no worries- I don't have class tomorrow- I will just work on my paper tomorrow!
Good night!
Oh, and the fresh fruit looks delicious!!

When other fish get fishy, thank neptune for smoked salmon. Katie, good luck with the homework. Soon it will be thanksgiving--you can almost smell the clementines.

Your Sunday club food never fails to amaze me - those are the cutest desserts!

Good luck getting everything done! I, sadly, was not a fan of Beloved. Hopefully you'll enjoy it more than I did :)

Happy Monday!
