For lunch today I am having honey smoked turkey rolls, green beans, and baked yams. I want to finish up my sides since I will be having dinner tonight at the boy’s school for an end of the year event. Tomorrow night we are going to the Phillies game as well so I figured I might as well use them up now. Last night, I basically finished my introduction. I have a few more things to add at the end of it but I need a couple papers from school I forgot to grab. It won’t take long once I have them though. This morning I have been working on the results and am about halfway through them already which is super exciting. I am hoping to get another section or two done before I head to the boyfriend’s to catch up on the Royal Wedding and get ready for this evening :)
This morning for breakfast I am having two whole wheat waffles with fresh blackberries. I have to amp up my waffle eating this week since I bought another box of them yesterday and already had a box. My grocery store had a triple manufacturers coupon day so I made out really well, and basically just bought stuff I had coupons for since it cost me pennies. I wish they did that more often! So today is another beautiful day and I am essentially finished with my introduction yayyy! I have to shape up the end of it but I need a few more papers I have at school so I will bang that out this week. Today I am planning to work on my results. I hope it won’t be too intense!
Baked Salmon, Green Beans, Yam Slices April 29, 2011
Tonight for tonight I had a piece of baked salmon marinated in teryaki sauce, steamed green beans, and yam slices. This is almost the same meal as last night except I figured I would switch up the fish. I need to go grocery shopping again soon since I am getting low on meat, veggies, etc. Since my opening day was canceled tonight because of the poor field conditions (i.e. torential downpours yesterday), I might have time to go later. But I will only go if I finish my introduction. I have a minimum of three paragraphs left to do and am feeling pretty confident about them. I really hope I can meet my Wednesday deadline for my first rough draft. Otherwise, just hanging in tonight! Yayy for Friday :P
Today for lunch I am having five tuna + celery/mayo in fillo cups with fresh strawberries and cucumber slices. I have been wanting to have these cute little cups for the longest time. I love that you can use them for a meal or dessert and they have the perfect amount of crunch. I definitely plan to incorporate them into something sweet. So I went into lab for a few hours this morning and actually got a lot done. This afternoon I need to finish up cellular adhesion molecules as well as endothelial dysfunction in pathological conditions and I will be finished with my introduction yayyy! Hopefully I can write 2-3 pages in a few hours since I have opening day for softball at 6pm. Wish me luck!
This morning for breakfast I am having Trader Joe’s high fiber cereal with fat free milk and a freshly sliced kiwi. I really love kiwi! They are sooo sweet and juicy. Soooo I woke up this morning at 6:30am since I was a little warm and of course I turned the Royal Wedding on. It really is quite the event! I love Kate’s dress and how formal everything is. I made the boyfriend DVR it so I will have to watch the beginning for real this weekend. Such an exciting time! Sooo now I am planning to go into lab for a few hours. I only need to do 3 hours to get my 15 hours in for the week so that is really nice. I am planning to come home for lunch so I will post again when I return! Happy Friday:D
Tilapia, Green Beans, Baked Yams April 28, 2011
Tonight for dinner I made a piece of broiled tilapia, steamed green beans, and baked yams. It was really good but it is almost too humid to eat. I normally eat a lot earlier than I am tonight but I just couldn’t get the energy nor did I have much of an appetite. I know if I don’t eat something normal I will want to snack later. I already munched on some candy at school today so no more of that! Hopefully, it will cool down in the next hour so I can get comfortable and continue to write my introduction. I really want to finish it up by tomorrow at the latest. That way I can work on my results and discussion over the weekend and early next week in hopes of finishing my first real draft by Wednesday. I still have to analyze my slides, make graphs with the data, write it up, and take pictures through the microscope but I am thinking that can be done after I get my first draft mainly finished since it’s not an imperative part for my committee members to read before my final committee meeting. Wish me luck in my deadlines!
For lunch today I packed a honey roasted turkey and light swiss sandwich on toasted whole wheat bread, baby carrots, and fresh strawberries. This is pretty similar to my lunch yesterday, but you expected that right? I wish I had some lettuce or spinach for my sandwiches lately, I will have to pick some up soon. I only got a few basic staples at home on Monday so I will be sure to get a more complete order in the near future. I have no plans tonight so far which is amazing. Sometimes I just need that time to relax at home. Yesterday, I was exhausted from babysitting all day then running around at softball. Royal wedding in less than 24 hours, who’s excited?
For breakfast this morning I am having an egg substitute, turkey bacon, and light swiss sandwich on a toasted whole wheat bread with some fresh blackberries. This is sooo delicious! I really truly love breakfast foods. I was decently sad this morning since because of the warm weather we have been having, half of my loaf of bread, my unopened pack of english muffins, AND a half used pack of english muffins were ALL MOLDY!! Yuck!! Needless to say I will be making a grocery store trip sooner than later — and store my bread products in the fridge! Well I woke up to another humid day today ughhh. Luckily, my lab has air conditioning so once I get to school within the hour I should be fine. It’s just a matter of getting dressed and packed etc. I am planning to stay at school most of the day today and I need to get lots of writing done. I am sooo busy outside of school that I have to make sure my time there is well spent. Let’s see what I should bring for lunch..
Beef Stew, Corn Muffin April 27, 2011
Tonight for dinner I had beef stew and a corn muffin just like last night. This is the end of my leftovers since the boy had dinner with me last night. Granted it is another hot day, it is sooo delicious! I love stew mmm. I am scarfing this down as I type since I have softball practice at 6pm and just walked in the door. After babysitting I ran to get a shawl for an event I have Saturday night. I am lucky I live so close to the field. Oh andddd to make my day even better this morning while babysitting I lost a contact ahhhh. So basically I closed my right eye most of the day because my vision was all blurry. New contacts it is!
For lunch today I made a honey ham and swiss cheese sandwich on toasted whole wheat bread with fresh strawberries and celery sticks. I bought this new Oscar Mayer lunch meat pack with half honey ham and half honey turkey. Sometimes a pound of one is too much so I like this idea. I can’t wait to try out the turkey. I kind of hope it cools down today because I am miserable when I am stuck in the sticky heat. We shall see though, hopefully the girls are fine with it. Hump day baby! Week is half way over :)
