I hope y’alls Thursdays are treating you well. It’s stormy here in Orlando but that just gives me an excuse to hunker down and get some work down on these projects I have for school this afternoon before (hopefully!) it clears up and I can head downtown again for another run! 🙂
First off—loooooved that Blueberry Z-bar! It was so much more tasty than their chocolate flavors to me for some reason, and I love chocolate! This was definitely my favorite kind and I will be buying it again in the future!
For lunch today I had a soup and sammie combo. I had a cup of Pacific Foods Creamy Tomato soup with a turkey sandwich and a pear.
On my sandwich I had two slices of organic smoked turkey, 2 bread and butter pickle slices, jalepinos, spinach, dijon and a light laughing cow. It was very tasty!
After lunch I sneaked a small piece of oatmeal bar but it dodged the camera because the camera is charging! I just have to end my meals with something sweet I guess.
Speaking about sweet, tomorrow we are tasting some sweeter wines…with chocolate! I believe we are tasting some Reislings, Champagne and some Italian sparkling wines. I have never been a big fan of sweet wine but I do like Champagne! Today we learned all about how Champagne is made (it’s fermented twice to keep the bubbles in it!) and about German wines. We also watched a video from the History Channel on how wine is made. It was very interesting as well–I love that I feel like I’m learning so much every day!
I have two big projects to work on this afternoon. The first is my wine project. I already wrote my paper on the Pacific Northwest region and the history of its wine, and now I’m working on my menu and pairing it with wines from the region. I also have a cost control project where I have to do sort of like a business proposal of a restaurant that I would open, write a menu and cost each item out. I am doing a vegan dessert cafe! I have to look through some cookbooks for inspiration!
See you for dinner!
