Girl’s Night Day

13 02 2009

Yesterday was a busy day of class and shopping and then heading to girl’s night so I didn’t get a change to write about it all.


Went to the gym and I biked for 45 minutes- so there was no impact on my toe. I can’t wait for my toe to heal and to be able to run again!!!

I took Jack for a short 1 mile neighborhood walk- It was just gorgeous weather I could not resist.


Food Principles Lab: We made mustard vinegarette (an emulsion) and panna cotta ( a gel). Our group also volunteered to make jello from plain gelatin not the already sweetened mixes. I wanted to take pictures but I wasn’t sure if it would be pheasible- so I think I will bring my camera next time to campus in case. I typically don’t eat on campus so I usually don’t bring my camera. I would hate to have it banging around in my bookbag or leave my bookbag for a minute and someone steal it etc. so I usually just leave it at home.

Our next lab we are tasting and evaluating them and making all kinds of potatoes: Mashed potato, Potato Salad, and French Fries !

* I also studied for our first exam in Vitamins Minerals and Nutraceuticals: It will be on antioxidants, calcium ,vitamin D, and osteoprosis and heart disease *


Girl’s Night! It was such a great night to catch up with my friend Caroline and a few of her close girl-friends that I don’t see much either. Caroline is a totally foodie AND her boyfriend is French! Literally from france and cooks like it too!

So here are my eats:

Breakfast was the same as yesterday ( banana blueberry peach smoothie with kashi cereal cinnamon and fresh blueberries)

I made a whole wheat wrap with egg whites, broccoli, mushrooms, and a little hot sauce. I made a salad on the side with crunchy sprouts, olives, cucumbers, blueberries, cauliflower, mushrooms, organic greens, carrots and some goddess dressing.

I had two of these chicken salad sandwiches on her homemade crossiant rolls with a glass of French 75. This was so delicious, it was champagne and gin and some kind of juice. I would definitely want to make that drink again sometime soon! I also had a few bites of a homemade brie wheel with a slice of bread. (unpictured because we were chatting so much and my fingers were cheesy)

Her boyfriend made us crepes with nutella and rasbperry filling. Caroline had also made cream puffs- wow- my pumpkin banana bread didn’t stand a chance. I was too full to have any as was everyone else but the ladies all tried a bite for the sake of it and told me it was delicious.
