Thank you to everyone who has entered the Stevia Giveaway so far. All of your blog and recipe suggestions are inspiring – I can’t wait to get working on them! Apparently, y’all have an obsession with cinnamon rolls…. If I undertake this, someone better make my recipe!
A Yes Woman update: Lately, I have upped the ante on being a Yes Woman. This may have come at the expense of my first week of Genes and Genetics, but meh! I did a lot of catching up over the weekend. In the last week or two, I have said Yes to:
a poetry open mic night
more rock climbing!
going to a farm and picking fruits and veg
(the fun was only slightly spoiled when my friend pointed out that we were doing for fun what others do for work…)
going out when I when I felt like being a hermit
trying a new restaurant
and last night?
That may all sound like fun and games, which it was, but I am not a good dancer. I love to dance and typically take a no fear-dont care if I look like an idiot approach, but that all goes out the window when it comes to a specific type of dance. If everyone is properly salsa-ing, waltzing, or two stepping, I don’t want to be the only one out there thats just shakin’ my hips and flailing my arms! So, I was a bit nervous to go to a salsa dance class last night, but my friend and I went and gave it a go! A Corona Extra with lime and a dash of salt mayyy have helped a tad…
But not nearly enough! We missed the first 5 or so minutes and tried to jump on in, but we weren’t able to catch up in time. After about 20 minutes (okay… probably more like 15), we gave up and went to a local trivia night downtown. Going to every trivia night in Davis is also on my Yes Woman list, so it was a win anyway!
And what did I have before my Corona? Allow my first What I Ate Wednesday to show you! I only photographed my meals, and not my snacks or spoonfuls of vanilla bean Talenti. I always get a bit bored when bloggers show the same picture of their hand holding an apple or a Larabar, so I figured I’d spare you.
A parfait of cottage cheese, Fiber One Honey cereal, cantaloupe, figs, and sliced almonds!
(accidently took the photos pre-almond-addition)
You don’t eat your breakfast out of a beaker too? What! Crazy.
It is actually a… souvenir from the death camp that was Biochemistry Lab last quarter. Don’t judge.
worlds best Cobb salad!
shredded romaine, 2 slices of nuked bacon, 1 hard-boiled egg + 2 hard-boiled egg whites, tomatoes, cucumbers, a smattering of bleu cheese crumbles
all tossed with salt, pepper, and Annie’s Cowgirl Ranch dressing
was a Whole Wheat or Bust classic – cheesy chicken enchiladas! No pictures though, I just wanted to enjoy my meal sans glass lens.
And that was…
