What happened to autumn?? It seems like we went straight from summer to winter!! I hate winter with a passion… but it does make this seem a bit more season-appropriate…
Mushroom barley soup.
I could probably eat this every day and not get sick of it. For real.
Last night was very sad… for various reasons about which I will whine soon, have no fear! But I also had the very last of my veggie burgers — the best I have ever tried — which have, of course, been discontinued! :( I was saving it, but I don’t know why… since I would have to eat it sooner or later, I just did. No condiments because I am weird and didn’t want to lose the flavor of the burger itself!!
I tried another one of the iced teas from POM Wonderful, this time the pomegranate hibiscus green tea.
I have no idea how hibiscus is supposed to taste, having never had it before… this tea had a nice light flavor which was not unpleasant, but I don’t know if I liked it enough to purchase it.
Here’s the spicy take on the salad in my last post:
Romaine, baby peppers, chick peas, and this extra-hot salsa!
The container I used for the salsa fits four tablespoons of water, but only two of salsa. I can’t figure that out. But it’s a good thing, actually, because four tablespoons of this salsa would have slaughtered me. It is pretty safe to say that my search for an extra-hot salsa is over. This was so hot that my nose was running! I think I killed all my taste buds.
Dead taste buds notwithstanding, I had a Starbucks date with Ellie. I came prepared this time — I brought creamer! That, coupled with syrup and sweetener, made the coffee bearable. Still not my drink of choice, but not completely awful. (Of course, if I was actually in possession of functioning taste buds at the time, I might have felt differently!)
The Verbal Vomit… last night was annoying because I got ready to go to the pool. I went to the pool. The pool was closed. I was ticked off, but decided that I could use the extra time to work on my assignment for school. To make a long story short, I wasted two hours of my life fighting with Dreamweaver. Dreamweaver won. AKA, epic fail.
On the joint topics of epic failures and school, I’m having some annoying troubles. I appear to be in the pattern of either completely skipping it, or calling a granola bar dinner on the nights that I have classes. It doesn’t take a genius to figure out why — even if I were completely comfortable with eating in random public places, which I’m not, there isn’t a cafeteria anywhere in the building. I suppose pretty much the only “logical” conclusion here would be to bring along a sandwich… and here I am sitting completely befuddled and trying to pinpoint when on earth sandwiches became so terrifying to me, and why. I don’t avoid carbs; I never did. I just can’t figure it out, and I kind of have to. The same thing happens to me when I see my therapist; I use my lunch hour at work for that, so I can’t really sit down and eat. Sandwich dilemma again. Which I’m currently pondering, and the prospects for solving it before tomorrow are looking quite dim. What other possible solution is there aside from “just stop being such a freak and snap out of it!”??
Off to bed I go. I really really really really need to accomplish something useful tomorrow!! In the meantime, get used to this.
Have a happy Thursday!
