Since I last blogged… Adam was out-of-town on one of his very last trips this year (yay!) and I lived on the couch eating Chinese food and laughing so loudly at “30 Rock” that I hurt my throat. We all had our parts to play.
I did occasionally peel off
my his sweatpants, once to visit the hospital where I will be spending the next month. The final semester of my Coordinated Program is full-time internship hours – though I will actually being taking a history class too, to finish up my graduation requirements. The semester is split into thirds: 1 = clinical work at a major hospital, 2 = time in long-term care and independent work on a business plan, and 3 = placement of our choosing.
I chose a local children’s hospital so I could get more exposure to pediatric nutrition. For the next four weeks, I’ll be at the hospital (M-F, 8-4:00), trying to soak up as much as I can. I am so excited! I’ll be sure to share more details tomorrow.
Since I have to spend the next month rejoining the world of the living - aka showering regularly and eating meals that wouldn’t make my classmates wince! – I figured I would try to knock off my 30 days of blogging goal. We’ll see how long that lasts.
And my new camera? I’m on the fence. I’m missing the old version (I rebought the Sony Cybershot but in a newer model) and hoping that I’m just working my way through the learning curve. For today, I forgot to resize the photos and editing this post took way too long. I’ll have to let the pictures speak for themselves and keep my descriptions short…
Cascadian Farm Berry Cobbler Granola with fresh blackberries and the last of the vanilla cashew milk.
Argo Tea Hibiscus Tea Sangria. <– so refreshing!
Spicy avocado brown rice inari.
Chicken – cooked in the crock pot then shredded – tossed in my 1000 Island BBQ Sauce.
Roasted green beans.
A few words on the rolls, since Alexia sent them to me to review – we liked them. I don’t know if I’d say loved, since potato bread isn’t one of my very favorites, but they were certinaly the best packaged bread product I’ve ever had. The rolls were fluffy with a nice crust and while the flavor didn’t scream sweet potato there was definitely a little something extra there. They were easy to cook (12 minutes in the oven) and each roll has 110 calories and 5 grams of protein.
I spread a little Smart Balance Light on the split roll after I snapped the photo and I quite enjoyed it.
What’s your favorite type of bread? Mine is sourdough, mmmn!
