Bad news is my voice is still gone…..good news is that I didn’t need it today because Ryan and I went to go see Australia with my parents! I LOVED it!!!!!!!!! It was soooo good—-now that is my kind of movie! I just love long war epics like that. And it was perfect because I didn’t have to talk. Before we left I snacked on a chobani with half a banana, sliced.
And then we snuck pita pit into the movie since it was a three hour movie around lunchtime!
I got the same thing I got on Friday—a whole wheat hummus pita with avocado, spinach, jalapinos, banana peppers, pickles, black olives, red onions, feta cheese and hot sauce. I couldn’t take a picture of it unwrapped since we were in the movie theater!
Later on, I went over to hang out with the parents for a bit and had a toasted Kashi waffle with almond butter and jam
I have honestly not been extremely hungry all day because of my cold, but I’m trying to keep my eating as normal as possible so I can stay fueled when I don’t feel well. I’m also trying to drink as many liquids as possible! I had an orange (Essential) vitamin water while in the movie and have been gulping at water all day long.
And now…………I have an announcement to make!
So…..I didn’t want to spill any beans but yesterday I had a job interview at somewhere where I have wanted to work for a very long time (since I heard they were coming to Tampa). Well, I got offered a position yesterday and took a day to think about it and talk to Ryan and my family about it. And………...you are now looking at the newest scratch baker at Greenwise!! They just happened to have the position open for a baker that has had culinary school training and I fit the mold. I wanted this job last spring and actually applied for it then, but then the yacht club opportunity arose and I couldn’t say no because of the chance to work with Chef, who has been named executive chef of the year and so on and so on. But, despite all the cake decorating I do, my heart has always been with scratch bread baking. And when I say scratch baking I mean that every single loaf is made by hand with fresh yeast using old fashioned methods. Breads such as baguettes, dark ryes, sourdoughs, ciabatta…all the artisan loaves that I have come to love. It will definitely be a new and interesting experience. And here’s the kicker——my shift is from 2 am to 11 am every day! Gah! I’m going to have to completely flip flop my life and schedule but I’m sure my body will get used to it…eventually. I’m not quite sure yet on how I will work out the logistics like sleeping/working out/eating meals….but that will come. Hopefully?! 😉
Well, I just wanted to share my news with you. I’m pretty excited. I prayed and prayed for an answer on whether this was the right thing for my career right now and I think that it is. So…get ready for an interesting (nocturnal!) journey to come with me!
Even though I feel like crapola, Ryan and I are going to dinner to celebrate. Well actually we are just going to Greenwise to pick up pizza but still.
See you tonight!
