Hi there! It hasn’t been the best week but it certainly could have been worse. Here is some of what I’ve been up to –
My trip to Ohio was sad but good. It was great to see my cousins and meet some babies.
I’m not sick anymore (yay!) but allergies are going to be rough this season. On Tuesday I did get the most carsick I’ve ever been. I moaned and cried the whole way home from Ohio and it was ridiculous.
The dog is still sick. He is having a severe allergic reaction and if his eyes aren’t better by Friday he has to go to a doggie dermatologist (yes, that is a real thing). He’s wearing a cone so he won’t scratch and it’s beyond pitiful.
My Wednesday test was pushed back to Monday because I stumbled into class in Adam’s sweatshirt (that I’d worn for the past 24 straight hours) and my teacher took pity on me and sent me home. I took my statistics test today and I think it went well.
I didn’t feel right taking photos the last fee days so no recap. But here is what I ate today –
Reduced fat cottage cheese topped with a caramel Oikos and some toasted coconut.
The cottage cheese/yogurt mix rocks my socks, particularly with coconut.
Late lunch. A slice of naan with cheese (leftover from Indian for dinner on Wednesday).
And a plate of roasted green beans.
I bought a family size bag of green beans before we left for Ohio last week so expect to see a lot more of these.
In class snack. Cara cara orange.
Cara caras are so flipping good! They almost never have seeds and they’re pink.
Dinner was not well-planned. We desperately need to go to the grocery store and when I got home from class at 8 we wandered up and down Elmwood in search of food. I ended up with a 2-2-2 from Panos.
It was insanely dark but it was 2 buttermilk pancakes, two sunny side up eggs, and home fries; smothered in butter and syrup. I piled everything into a huge mound and tried to get a little of each part in every bite.
Dessert. A sliced green apple with 2 Tbsp of caramel sauce.
The caramel sauce basically turned into a solid, impenetrable ball, but the apple was good.
Question – how do you order your eggs to get them made without excess fat? I tried to order them “dry,” like toast but that gave the impression that I wanted my yolks well-done. I finally just said “without excess oil” but I feel like there must be short-hand for this.
