Wooooooah, nelly!!!!! I just had one of my famous Jenna “I’m-starving-get-out-of-my-way” moments (Ryan knows exactly what I’m talking about)! I’m not sure what happened exactly. I was fine all afternoon at work but then I ate my snack and was still hungry and then the kitchen started prepping for dinner and all those amazing smells……..it was all I could do not to gnaw off my arm. And the funny thing is that the only thing on earth that I was craving was an Amy’s California burger!!! I NEEDED that burger like a cupcake needs frosting.
So, I raced home, ate about six pretzels out of the bag, and immediately made one for myself at 4:30. I had an Amy’s burger on an Ezekiel english muffin with a fat slab of organic tomato, ketchup and honey mustard with steamed broccoli and another yogurt on the side. I was craving yogurt too. Weird. As I was eating my body was sighing in happiness and furthermore when I had my piece of dark chocolate afterwards. Now I’m all ready to get in my jammies and hit the sack but unfortunately it’s off to school! The lesson learned from this experience was THAT I NEED MORE FOOD!!! I clearly didn’t pack enough today and I think it was that I needed more healthy fats. I did pack almonds but they were, um, tiny. This girl needs food!
I packed an oatmeal packet for a snack later.
Tonight should be an early night because all I have to do is make a cheesecake, pastry cream and tart dough to prep for tomorrow. Apparently the rest of my class was in school until 12:20 this morning (so says Chef Erin), so I’m sure everyone is pretty exhausted as is.
So long for now! See you in the a.m!
