Friday is a great day. Pretty much always. Whatever I have to do, I have the imminent weekend to brighten my mood. And though I'll spend most of the weekend studying, from sundown Friday to sundown Saturday I always take Sabbath, so I've been looking forward to it immensely.
Today I didn't jump out of bed right when my alarm went off, I'm pretty tired these days, but I got up quick enough I guess. I did a 4-miler, and by the time I was showered and dressed my stomach was actually growling audibly. That's pretty unusual.
So to breakfast: You may think, why does it look like you have dirt in your oatmeal? And that would be understandable.
But it's chocolate!
Chocolate Mocha Oatmeal
3/4 cup (60 g) quick oats
3 oz. (about 1/3 cup) vanilla soymilk
5 oz. (about 2/3 cup) water
15 g Chocolate Mocha Powder
That's starting the day off right.
I packed up my lunch - Tofurky sandwich and carrots. Wow that's an aggressively colored cutting board. It's actually more red in real life, though that's not better I guess.
I went to the school to study, take a practice test, do a quiz with my group, and study some more. Midterms start on Wednesday, but I have a lot to learn between now and then. When I started fading in the afternoon, I got out to Starbucks and got myself some coffee. By the time dinner rolled around I was pretty hungry.
Spinach salad with 1 tbsp walnuts, olive oil and balsamic vinegar.
Red Tofu Curry (thawed from the freezer) with 1 cup brown rice - hidden underneath.
Two things I learned from this dinner:
1. Vegetable curry freezes great.
2. Trader Joe's cooked brown rice tastes way better than my cooked brown rice. I may need some help in that area. Rice experts? Can you help me? Mine just wasn't nearly as good.
Boards prep: I did my 30 practice questions, but I didn't get to my review q's today. That means twice as many tomorrow. Must stop slacking.
For the moment, though, I'll enjoy this lovely time to be relaxed. I have The Social Network from Redbox that I'm planning to watch tomorrow. And I see cooking in my future as well. Happy weekend loves!
