Busy Week!

This past week has been very busy. I worked two nights and had a class in the middle. Switching my schedule around like that is very hard. It makes me very tired because my body doesn't know what way is up!

I worked Monday night and made a salad and some pasta for dinner for work. I didn't really have a chance to eat anything though because I was really busy with a difficult patient.

This pasta was easy:
  • garlic
  • onion
  • diced tomato
  • capers

I didn't get to eat my salad until I got home in the morning. I had it with my favorite Annie's Woodstock Dressing!


I wasn't hungry Tuesday at all. I just had a baked sweet potato for dinner. I had to get up early because I had to go to bed early so I could get up early for class.


I had class Wednesday. It was at the hotel across the street from the hospital and the hotel supplied us with the food. I had made myself a smoothie before I left. It was spiru-tien chocolate and banana with soy milk...I was running late so didn't take a picture. But they had a full breakfast. I had a huge plate of fresh fruit. I am not comfortable taking pictures of my food in public yet. I could not believe how many people had danish and soda for breakfast!!! Then went back for seconds!

For lunch they had salad, creamy pasta, and pizza. I had two huge plates of salad and a tiny tiny piece of pizza because I was so hungry and knew we would not be out until 4:30. I got super dizzy shortly after eating. But so far other than the HUGE pimple on my chin, no other adverse effects.

After class I was starving, they had afternoon snacks of brownies and peanut butter cookies, neither of which I eat anyways. So I went to Yama on my way home. This is what I gotMy free treats of sprouts, both spicy and sesame, spicy cucumber, and sesame broccoli

This is a Lebanon Roll. Its a spicy tuna roll with a mayo/spicy sauce with other bits in fav
Crunch Munch roll. Its crab salad and cucumber with a sauce on it deep fried. its also very yummy.
Yummy seaweed salad!!! Love this stuff! The only problem was that I was so hungry I don't think I tasted any of these treats! Usually when we go to the restaurant we sit and chat and eat things piece by piece...well that night I think I just shoveled everything in. I was so disappointed in myself for not savoring the flavors.


I had some smore's oatmeal when I got was so yummy!!! Just what I needed to give me the boost I needed after working Thursday night

I went shopping on Friday (finally!) and made some dip! This is White Bean Dip from Giada's first cookbook!!! I love this stuff!!! Its already gone! This is what I had for dinner I'm ashamed to say!

But I made up for that with some melon drizzled with the 25 year old balsamic my parents brought back from ItalyCan you say Yum!
