Thank you all again for the lovely birthday wishes yesterday!! I wish I could have a big birthday party and invite each and every one of you….vegan cake and all. Wouldn’t that be fun?! Now its back to the grind though, after a fun and special day.
Last night at school was mainly spent in lecture, looking at different pictures/ideas for our modeling chocolate cake we are about to start. We did dabble in some pastillage at the end of the night, cutting out different shapes to get the feel for it, but that was the extent of the night. I did, however, get birthday presents! My friend Erin (formally known as “Chef Erin” on the blog) got me pastry flour, a pastry brush that I have been wanting, and a bar of my favorite dark chocolate. Thanks, Chef 😉
This morning I just did 20 minutes on the treadmill before coming home and having a bowl of FlaxPlus granola. I just get so bored on the treadmill. I can’t wait until the weather gets cooler in the fall and I can run outside again. Even at 7 am here, its still in the upper 80s and that would not only dehydrate me, but also give me a major headache for the rest of the day! So, for now, I think I’ll stick to the air conditioned gym. I had half a banana with pb of course before going out.
Lunch is easy….and delicious today! I packed the leftovers of my Lemon Scented Bulgur (formally quinoa) salad. I also packed a very ripe and shriveled peach to have for dessert, and a bag of cherries with some cashews for a snack later.
It’s gorgeous out right now but Jason (the weather guy) says we are having very strong storms with high winds later in the day. That’s pretty usual here right now. Every day at around 4:00 it pours like there’s no tomorrow. I kind of like it. 😉
