Walk to The Spot
Katie and I were supposed to meet this morning for breakfast and a study session,
but we spent most of our time talking, whoops!
We did manage the breakfast part though. A grande iced (it was so warm here today!) coffee with skim milk,
and a thing of artichoke and spinach humus.
I know that humus is a strange breakfast but it sounded so good I just couldn’t pass it up!
Unfortunately the flavor was too garlicy for my taste buds, but it was nice to get some veggies into my morning. I finished about half each of the humus and the bread sticks.
Walk to school
I had a busy time on campus today – a meeting, two classes, and another meeting, all back to back. I snacked on a small vegan pumpkin pecan blondie before my first meeting.
And during Anatomy I ate this Balance Pure Cherry Pecan Bar.
I was a little unsure about the flavor – I got it on super sale at Wegmans – but I ended up being a fan. It wasn’t as amazing as the cookie dough variety, but it also wasn’t as caloric and had fewer grams of saturated fat.
School fun facts – 1. They recently discovered taste buds in our lungs. 2. I did such a good job on my Orgo homework (rewriting the class notes) that he gave me extra-credit points!
Walk to Wegmans
I knew I needed to get in a couple hours of solid concentration with my Orgo notes, so I headed to the Wegmans’ Cafe to study. And to get a tasty dinner.
Veggies, veggies, everywhere,
and green beans and chicken and eggplant in garlic sauce.
Since I was alone, and therefore wasn’t sharing a drink with the husband, I decided to try this fun looking drink.
I don’t know if it tasted exactly like chai OR cola, but the flavor had a nice spice and wasn’t too sweet.
Walk Get picked up and drive home
I covered more than 2 miles just in transit today, but canceling my run was Adam this evening wasn’t an option. We ran one mile out and walked one mile back, with a very exciting destination in the middle –
One morning few weeks ago, I was taking a walk and talking on the phone with my mom when I spotted that window display…..and I made such a loud exclamation of glee that the owner (who was in his car outside) asked me if I’d like him to open up the shop specially for me! Excited much? I told him I could contain myself, but my mom told me that for my ‘fall gift’ (yes, she’s crazy) I could go charge a couple of pumpkin brews.
Nice! We are very excited about our selection.
A sampling of pumpkin/seasonal beers,
a Root beer from Abita (one of my top 3 favorite beer companies),
and a few Tuskers, our new favorite beer that is almost impossible to find in Buffalo!
The Village Beer Merchant is awesome about having a great selection of things that are absent elsewhere in Buffalo, and the employees are all super nice and helpful.
Adam had to crack open a Tusker the minute we got home, and he saved a few swigs in the bottle for me.
What is your favorite type of beer? I actually don’t like beer that much, but I have three obsessions – 21st Amendment, Hell or High Watermelon; Abita, particularly the strawberry and winter brews; and Tusker.
