Would you like some food with that butter?

Hello there! I forgot to bring my camera cord with me to study today, so there'll be a whole lotta eats on this page!

My grandparents can't do brunch tomorrow, so we had lunch today instead. Before I left, I had my Emergen-C, vitamins and a chocolate chip Z-Bar.

This is by far my favorite Z flavor. If I heated it up, I think I would have thought it was a regular ole cookie! I might stock up on these at eat 'em like dessert.

Snack bowl at the club... I had a few pretzel rods and two fish (they were stale, thank goodness):

Cappuccino with skim, which I refilled with plain coffee when I finished:

The. Best. Salad. Ever. Marinated jumbo shrimp on a bed of spinach with raisins, julienned apples, pecan pralines and a poppy seed dressing (on the side).

I used about half the dressing (which was delicious) and ate almost everything. I gobbled up a few too many pecans, but hey, you only live once!

I should tell that to my arteries... I forgot to ask for my English muffin "dry" and it came dripping with butter. I still ate it, and of course it was delicious (butter makes everything taste like heaven), but I would have rather skipped out on that.

I had one of the club chocolate chip cookie in the car (don't worry Mom, I was parked) ... like my sweet leopard gloves?

I headed straight to the campus center and got a cup of my beloved Coconut Chai tea with a little skim milk and honey. I might need to invest in this for home; it is so yummy and each bag lasts for about 3 cups. And it smells SO GOOD. Kind of like my perfume actually. (Hmm... food blogger taking food obsession to an unhealthy level?)

Jalene and I ate in the cafeteria today so we could stay at school and work. I had a veggie burger and lemon pepper green beans:

"Southwestern" butternut squash soup, which I added tofu to:

With a diet coke. I don't normally drink soda, but I needed the caffeine boost and I didn't want any more coffee.

Unfortunately the soup was so disgusting and sweet- Jalene called it "marmalade"- that I only had about a bite. I was still hungry, so I had a PB&J on WW toast.

And, I couldn't resist, a cookie bar.

Grapefruit study snack:

Since I ate dinner at 5:30 I'm already getting hungry. I didn't really eat breakfast (woke up at 11, lunch was at 12:30) so I'll probably just have a bowl of cereal now.

I got a good chunk of my work done today... I think it was because Ourkitchenadventures gave me the Lame-O award on the condition that I be productive. So thanks, Sarah! I feel so much better after actually getting stuff done, so I'm going to relax and watch a movie in bed.

Have a lovely evening!

Dang, that's a whole lotta vitamins! That also reminds me why I take chewables! :)

Love the gloves and cookie, love the idea of putting tofu in squash soup (sweeet! sounds amazing!), and that salad and coffee look so purtttttty.

Happy Sunday Katie!
