Happy WIAW!!! I missed the party last week because I was traveling from 7:30 in the morning to 5 at night. I didn’t want to stress myself out with posting and reading blogs! I actually didn’t go on the computer at all from Wednesday to Sunday. I didn’t even miss it as much as I thought I would. I had other things to keep me busy!
I planned out a lot of food, just to make things easier. My room had a fridge and microwave so that was helpful! I brought apples, hb eggs, cottage cheese, bananas, carrots and hummus, oatmeal, and peanut butter. And granola bars. Lots of granola bars.
Breakfasts were oatmeal. I premeasured some snack bags full of 1/2 cup oats and microwaved them in a glass container in the mornings! Then I stirred in some cottage cheese and peanut butter and bananas. It definitely beat the poptarts that other kids were eating!
Lunches I usually went out for. I googled places to eat in Lansing so I’d know where to hit up I ended up going to the same restaurant two days in a row.
The place I was looking forward to try was Zoup. They have soups, salads, and sandwiches. The first day I tried a tuna salad sandwich and spicy black bean chili. Both were delicious!
The next day I tried this:
Veggie noodle soup and a “Sonoma” salad – mixed greens, craisins, almonds, bleu cheese and raspberry vinaigrette. So good!
I also stopped at Grand Traverse Pie Company for a slice of pie. Ah-mazing. Does anyone else have a collection of take-out menu’s from restaurants? I have about 12 from miscallaneous places I’ve went to.
Dinner. One night we went out to a buffet – Ponderosa’s.
Ugh.. I hate buffets. I can’t.stop.eating. It was all so yummy.
I obviously had to snag a few pieces of banana bread from the dessert bar.
Another night I made an egg salad sandwich. I was feelin’ cheap and didn’t want to spend money on dinner, haha!
The last night we had a banquet with dinner provided.
It started with salads and apple pie.
The main course was lasagna, beans, and garlic bread. They had an option for a vegetarian lasagna so I was happy! I know it all looks really good, but honestly it was pretty nasty. The lasagna was like rubber. I could barely chew it. And the beans were flavorless! Oh well, the pie was good!
So that’s basically what I ate for the 5 days I was gone! It was nice – food wasn’t the main thing on my mind. I got home on Sunday and fit in a quick run before going to my basketball banquet. Banquet = potluck!
Oh how I love potlucks. Our contribution – peanut butter sheet cake. Yum.
Tell me what you’ve been up to lately!!
I feel like I’ve been gone forever!
