On location!

Holaaaa! Thanks so much for the well wishes my lovely lovely blog peeps. I’m feeling about 99% better and my cough is next to being completely gone so take that sickness! Healthy will always prevail in the end… like justice!

 

Anyway, my Intro. to American Studies class was canceled so I’m sitting in Cranberrys blog reading (so Google Reader will stop SCREAMING at me) I just ate this because I almost chewed my arm off

Incorrectly rotated picture is incorrect.

 

I don’t remember ever having had this flavor before but it tasted like an oatmeal raisin cookie with frosting. Oatmeal raisin cookies aren’t suppose to have frosting… are they? Either way, all my appendages are still in tact and there is absolutely NOTHING wrong with anything covered in frosting so I’d call this one a win.

 

 

Sidenote: I got the Photobucket app for my Itouch and that is the ONLY reason that I’m able to blog right now. Cord free is the way to be!

 

 

That’s not how that phrase goes.

 

 

……it’s not?

 

 

Oh. I see. Good job Ninja Turtles, way to have positive morals.

 

 

Moving on. Yesterday I had sushi for the first time in a while

A super basic spicy tuna roll. It was satisfactory at best. There was WAY too much white rice and slightly spice kick was no where to be tasted. I ended up using all the wasabi (something I never do) because I craved the heat so much. Sushi at Rider is a tricky mistress; the chances of getting it good aren’t exactly favorable. Oh well, live and learn!

 

Sometimes I talk to Kat about Greek food and then proceed to eat my body weight in hummus.

OK, not my body weight exactly but more hummus that usual. I ate ALL of it too and have a fear that Dalys is spoiling me into think I can eat unhealthy amounts of the stuff whenever I want. I’m not even going to think about what I’ll be like after a graduate….

 

 

“What do you MEAN this is all I get?!?! If you don’t give me more hummus I’m going to rip your heart out.”

 

 

 

Another incentive to get a good job.

 

 

 

Just realized that my incentives for making money are to support my hummus and nut butter habits. Somehow, I don’t think that’s normal.

 

 

Weekend wrap tradition! This guy bit the dust, so to speak. Overstuffing led to a pretty unpleasant crime scene. I’ll spare you the gruesome aftermath.

For the record, the cantaloop was not a component to the wrap. It just needed to sit there because I didn’t want to unnecessarily dirty another plate.

 

Insides:

  • Eggs
  • Spinach
  • Feta
  • Tomatoes
  • Slice of ham
  • Red peppers
  • Carrots
  • Mushrooms

 

Ahem.

Sorry to spring something so graphic on all of ya. Hope no one was too squeamish and if you were…..whoops! In all seriousness though, the wraps always taste delicious despite their not-so-lovely appearance. Although, doesn’t it look kind of like a bird sort of thing with it’s wings and all?  That makes it a little nicer to look at… right? 😉

 

I just realized that it hasn’t been a week since I last posted. WOO! I’ve got to head out (it’s finally time for lunch!) but within the next few posts I’ll be covering the following:

  • NEDAwareness week
  • My exercise as of lately
  • The film Food Inc. (just watched it in food writing)
  • ANOTHER new Chobani flavor

Promises of fun.

Hullo everyone! I’m in my “office”

Max wanted to see what it was like.

 

Alas, I do wish I actually did real work. I mean, blogging/blogging reading is great but not having a real job? It makes me feel really useless. Sigh.

 

You know what’s not useless? Cute sandwiches with veggies.

Ham/swiss cheese/tomato on whole wheat with hummus. The veggies are from one of those microwave stream bags that I am officially in love with. Convenience has never tasted better! Also on the side, Snookie’s favorite treat 😀

 

Oh look, MOAR chili

The rest of the steam bag and half a sweet potato with a bit of AB. And yes, I’m STILL eating chili…..slowly but surely, however, we LaForges are using it up. The bottomless container will soon become depleted…I hope.

 

Yesterday, there was an attempt to make sushi. We cooked the special Japanese sticky rice according to the recipe and then tried to assemble a roll.

I would like to point out that Nana decided at the last-minute that the rice vinegar was unnecessary…. ahem, it WAS. There is such a thing as being too sticky. Not to mention we had to parchment paper instead of a bamboo mat.

No pictures of the monstrosity were taken…. it was a pile of rice/seaweed/chicken. Big ole’ pile. This is the only evidence of the event.

About 10 seconds after this was taken I burned myself. I stuck my hand in the bowl to put down some more rice and my fingertips felt like they were on FIRE. I then began flailing while trying to get the glove off…… also, my flailing caused rice to end up all over the kitchen floor. You would have thought we were using it as confetti.

 

Sushi failure! I’m going to try it again tomorrow though… it will be a lot easier if I can work by myself. I’ll let you know how it turns out.

 

The stir fry itself came out great though.

Atop a bed of romaine lettuce…. so colorful! This is a fresh/healthy meal that takes essentially little to no effort and can be extremely versatile depending on what tickles your particular taste buds! I think I’ll probably be doing a tutorial before I head back to Rider so that’s another thing to keep a lookout for!

 

Well, well, well…someone is making a bunch of promises 😉

 

After stir-fry….homemade strawberry daiquiris. Wooooo.

Yep, this 21-year-old on winter break is drinking on a Wednesday with her mom. If that’s not the epitome of cool then I don’t know what is.

Action shot.

And alas, the beverage matched my glass (also, change of table cloth! Now we’re in Valentines Day mode)

 

I used to have non-alcoholic ones when I was younger so it was a bit of a blast from the past….well, a rum induced blast from the past anyway.

 

That’s sadly all I’ve got. I apologize for being so boring lately…. this blog needs to get fun/interesting ASAP! I’ll fix it, I swear!

Here’s a start?

My nephew likes to control the remote

AND

Max and I have a mutual love for George Foreman grills.

 

Enjoy the day everyone! ❤
