I had today all planned out. Since it’s my first day of no classes (can I get a yeehaw!) I wanted to be extra productive with my time and get some hard-core studying in. I can’t believe I already have a meal management final tomorrow. When did that sneak up on me?
To start the day off right I had my first peach of the season on the side of 1.5 c. kashi heart to heart with 1 c. milk and 2 T. walnuts. I’m loving cereal for breakfast lately…
So then I studied for a bit…but there’s only so much you can read about sulfite compounds and anthocyanins and cream of tartar before you sort of drift away. Yes, yes…I know I’ll look back someday and see why it was all so very important. And for the most part I even find it interesting. But I also tend to drift when I’m reading the material, and it can be hard to stay mentally focused.
Snack was a T. pb on toast, which came about 2 hrs. after my breakfast. I love cereal, but it just never keeps me full for very long. Actually…what does keep me full for very long? ha…
I ended up going to a nursing home to apply for a dietary aide position. My mom had told me about it this morning, and I decided that instead of battling the idea around in my head like I normally do, I’d just drive there and apply in person. Whatever happens, happens. *crossing fingers* I asked myself if I really wanted the job or if I was mentally just telling myself it “would look good on a resume.” And I came to the conclusion that it would be a great experience and would give me some insight into a different side of food preparation. We shall see what happens…:)
I started to panic a little later as I realized all the information I still didn’t know for tomorrow’s final. But then I reached the conclusion that it wasn’t worth freaking out over. All I can do is study and leave it at that. Otherwise I become overly anxious to the point where nothing sinks in. And when worse comes to worse, I ask myself, “In another ten years, will it really matter?”
Supper was wonderful and spent out on the deck again–I’m loving this georgeous 72 degree, sunny weather. 🙂 We had orange marmalade salmon with quionoa and broccoli on the side. Also made a stir fry of summer squash, portabello mushrooms, onion, and zucchini by throwing in some oregano, salt, pepper, basil, and balsamic viniagrette on top. Really good!
