Hi everyone! I hope you’re all having nice weekends 🙂 While taking a break from my projects and papers and test-studying this weekend, I thought I’d summarize my last week in pictures. A montage, if you will.
Oatmeal cooked with water instead of milk, with 1/2 cup of Greek yogurt stirred in at the end, and a spoonful of Adirondack Jack.
Oatmeal with coconut and half a crumbled Saratoga PB ball.
Eaten while working on the accounting assignment for last week’s huge catered meal.
Speaking of which … our catered meal on Tuesday was a huge success! We received so many compliments for our meal (of which I will show you below). I carried so many heavy trays that the part of my hand between my thumb and first finger hurt like the dickens the next day. I took a LOT of pictures, but most of the pictures show my classmates and I would never post pictures of them without their permission. But, I do have a few pictures I can show you.
Holy smokes, thatsa lotta people!
Can you see my reflection?
Clockwise from top: pulled pork sliders, sweet potato au gratin, green bean salad, and BBQ chicken.
We also served a mean strawberry salad and a deliciously tart rhubarb cobbler with vanilla ice cream. This meal was delicious (yes, I tried almost everything). I’m planning on trying a lighter version of the sweet potato au gratin this week. Once I show you the recipe, you’ll see why I want to make it lighter. 😉
Spring has sprung!
Walking with the dogs:
I call this Maddie’s “flounder” look (like the fish). She probably straining to get at a squirrel.
Don’t tell me you don’t see it.
I also gave a thrilling presentation this week.
We also went to a gnocchi-making party at a friend’s apartment, but I sadly did not remember to take pictures until dessert. Fortunately, Peter’s passionfruit cheesecake was delicious to look at.
And finally (are you still with me?), Peter made EXTREMELY SPICY XO sauce from scratch from Mastering the Art of Chinese Cooking for our delectation. Served with shrimp, brown rice, and cucumber (intended to cool the heat, but ineffectual nonetheless).
Eaten while working on my latest nutrition care plan (told you I was busy!).
This sauce was SPICY! I needed a little something to cool my pharynx.
Did you know strawberries are super cheap right now? I usually like June-ripened strawberries best of all, but I couldn’t pass up strawberries for $1.50 per pound. I like strawberries best raw, in yogurt or on oatmeal. How do you like your strawberries?
Have a wonderful Saturday, everyone! 🙂
