Good morning everyone!
Last night in school was SO fun! It was “sauce night” and we played around with different flavor combinations. Nothing is too crazy or out of limit….we could do whatever we wanted! My partner, Jack, and I created a raspberry-basil coulis, a thai tea creme anglaise, a blueberry maple caramel sauce and an earl gray chocolate sauce. The winner? The raspberry-basil!! Our chef instructor loved it and I couldn’t keep my tasting spoon out of it! We made a basic raspberry sauce but added basil and pureed the basil in with it at the end for a very summery, fresh sauce that would be perfect on vanilla ice cream. mmmm!
This morning I woke up 15 minutes later than I usually do but was all set to go to the gym. I’m just starting to feel like my old self again after getting so sick last weekend and my body is craving exercise! My workout was pretty quick because I woke up late, and I didn’t even get a chance to eat a snack before I was out the door. I did gulp down some orange juice though. At the gym I warmed up briefly on the treadmill, did upper body weights for about 20 minutes then finished with 12 minutes on the elliptical machine.
When I got back I tried this new cereal I “borrowed” from my parent’s pantry:
It was actually really good! We will see how filling it is but the taste was yummy and I liked how there were whole freeze dried blueberries in it.
My day is going to be very hectic, I’m afraid. I’m training a new girl today at Roy’s and she is coming at 11 so I really have no idea when I will get a chance to eat lunch. I might take little bites all throughout the afternoon. I packed the last of my chicken into a bagel sandwich with honey mustard, provolone cheese and lettuce. I also packed a container of grapes and a yogurt and some watermelon for a snack later.
