Are we there yet?

No Katie, we are not. I'm stuck in the library trying to get two research papers done, but I can't seem to focus at all. (There's a group of girls in my study room being SO LOUD... GRR.) I've never been very good at all-nighters, and the cafe that sells coffee and tea is closed... HMPF. Well, I'll stop my whining and get onto the real beef... er, fake beef (...tofeef?)


My uncle brought me a jar of his very own maple syrup on Sunday, and tonight was the perfect opportunity to use it! It was soooo good. Had I not been trying to restrain myself, I probably could have eaten the whole jar with a spoon!

I made maple mashed sweet potatoes, Gliding Calm tofu (1/3 of a block), and Kashi Original Pilaf with peas.


Look at all those textures!


Everything tasted better than usual today. The tofu was perfectly caramelized, the sweet potatoes were light and fluffy, and the pilaf (which I'd never tried before) was a nice surprise.

I packed some study snacks to take to the lib: carrots with Justin's Organic cinnamon peanut butter, a fat free blueberry yogurt, and a Z bar.


I ate the Z bar at 9:30 (almost 2 hours ago); it was pretty good! I think it's probably tied with the chocolate chip flavor.

Depending on how long I can make myself stay here I'll probably eat the rest of my goodies. For now, it's glasnost and perestroika...

I'll be home in three days, I'll be home in three days...
