Coffee has caused a few problems in my life lately. Ha, it's my fault anyway. Have you ever had that feeling before you get yourself involved in something, you get a bad vibe that the result isn't going to be great, and most likey you'd have to suffer the consequences? Well, a few weeks ago, before I had my first starbucks in a long time, I figured that I would most likely be addicted BUT that I would be able to control myself. Well, guess what...I am typing at Starbucks as you read :o) orrr :o(
Just to recap last week. Due to my starbucks and poor memory, sometimes I'd grab a starbucks at night and forget to make it a de-caf. So with that said, I spent a couple nights with less sleep. On Monday (the day of my final) I woke up late...agian.
My class started at 11 o'clock... I woke up at 11:03. I thought OH NO! so I rushed and changed into my clothes. I was almost close to not brushing my teeth, but I knew that taking an exam for the remiander of the class with a funky breathe would make me lose my concentration. So I brushed them cleeeean.
It was 11:08 and I was half way to school. I didn't pack breakfast, because I had no time. Fortunately I grabbed this bar that I bought from TJ's.
It was so chewy and good. I skimmed through the ingredients and it is much similar to the Amazing Grass Bar. There was an added crunch to each bite, but I couldn't retrace it to what it was, it made the eating experience exciting and stress-free (considering I was late to an exam)
I arrived just in time! just as she was passing the test. I am so glad I did not pull my hair out on the way to school...if I did, it would have been for nothing :o)
Mrs. Dash Original Blend
Garlic Pepper Blend
and frozen peas and carrots
It was amazing! Next time I need to add chicken stock or something with a strong flavor. It was easy because the rice cooker did all the work while I caught up watching 90210. I do not eat salt unless it naturally occurs in food. So I added 1/4 Tspn of sea salt, but it made a huge difference for my taste buds. Now I find that when I usually eat foods laden with a little bit of salt, such as fries...I taste the salt in my mouth the whole day no matter how much water I drink. Does that happen to you?
This is what I also packed for lunch, in my handy dandy cooler:
So here I am at Starbucks and I'm sitting across this guy who just keeps chatting up a storm. I literally kept re-reading a sentence five times before I got the concept from my book. I am a very ackward person and I often acknowledge it, but sometimes I just didn't know what to say to him. I've been trying to do my work and he's been chatting up a storm :o( but he is a very nice guy.
This is what he is making (I managed to sneak in a picture, shhhhhh) :
