I made it!!!!!!!!! The practicals this morning were very difficult but it’s over and I swung by with a B in the class. Now I am officially done with Meat Fabrication forever and have a lovely little break ahead of me! I actually did really well on my chicken…I just worked very slow and carefully and managed to produce 2 (almost) perfect boneless skinless breasts and 2 boneless skinless thighs. But then the fish came. I don’t know why its so hard for me but it is and I cut my finger again today! I have never not cut my finger when filleting fish. Maybe that means I shouldn’t do it! The fillets turned out okay in the end though. Not my best and I could have done better but I got what I needed to to get a B in the class so I’m happy. I got home earlier than usual and made a nice little lunch. I don’t have these often because I don’t like to eat a lot of processed food, but for a once in awhile thing, they are fine—the morningstar farms buffalo “chik’n” wings. I ate a ton of morningstar farms products when I was a vegetarian in college and still would choose them over real chicken tenders if I had the choice. They are so tasty! I had 5 of them (one serving) with about 1/2 tbsp honey mustard, a sliced pear, 4 ounces plain yogurt with jam and 10 kashi crackers. When I finished I was still sort of hungry because the meal wasn’t as calorie dense as my usual lunches so I ate 5 more kashi crackers, a tiny piece of dark chocolate and made some Candy Cane tea! Now I’m all set!
My lunch…note that I did add 5 more crackers! Total (with the small chocolate) it was about 535 calories
Thank you all so much for all the well wishes for my practicals! I just love hearing from you guys, it really makes my day!
As for the rest of the day…cleaning until my friend gets here! We are going out to dinner at Roy’s Restaurant, where I work, and I am so excited because the food is AMAZING! I’ve been trying to plan out what I’m going to order for days because everything is just so good. I thought you guys might like to see the menu for yourselves! Here’s link: the sushi is to die for!
I’m happy because dinner is early tonight (6:30) and I love early dinners because I just get so hungry around then….I’m sure there will be wine involved but I’m going to try to keep it in moderation
