I’m in pretty good spirits this evening for a number of reasons.
First of all my sandwich was awesome at lunch today!! It kept me full afternoon long and while I did snack on my grapes, I didn’t even feel hungry enough to eat my almonds. A winning combo for sure! Second of all, I came home this evening to find a fedex package next to my door. The folks over at Amy’s Kitchen apparently read the blog, love it, and sent me some goodies!!! I got a really nice Amy’s t-shirt, some cute magnets and five free product coupons!!!!! Now I can try all out those frozen meals/veggie burgers I’ve been dying to get at Whole Foods. What a fun and uplifting surprise!!! Thanks, Amy! 🙂 It totally made my day!
And lastly…the big news is that I accepted an externship position today. My Greenwise interview isn’t until Sunday, but I got a call from the yacht club that I did some pastry work at last spring a couple days ago and they offered me a position working with the head pastry chef there for 3 months. It’s not an offer I can pass up because of all of the amazing experience I will gain and the connections I will make, so looks like I’m moving back to my hometown of Vero Beach in September for a couple months! Of course Ryan is crying because the plan was for me to move in this fall, but I think he wants a little bit more of the bachelor life anyways ;). We both agreed this is the best choice for me, career-wise— and I will be moving back to Tampa mid-December to start my life there! Stay tuned….I’m sure it will be interesting as I work 40 hours a week actually in the industry. I will have lots of stories, I’m sure!
So back to food!
Its sort of stormy outside (per usual here in mid-summer) and I was craving something comforting. I made Annie’s Shells and White Cheddar and added in some rotisserie chicken for protein and some broccoli to get in some veggies. I also made a small salad with some mini carrots drizzled in woodstock dressing. This mac and cheese is so delicious and was the perfect combo with the chicken. I divided the box in two and am saving the other half for probably tomorrow night’s dinner so it won’t go to waste.
I’m bringing a chocolate chip z-bar with me for later. Have a great night!
