So, we definitely didn’t get out of class AGAIN last night until 12:15. I can’t even begin to relay to y’all the extent of my exhaustion last night. By the end of the night I was a zombie, walking around in circles in the kitchen with a towel in my hand, cleaning off table tops. The good news was that I got an A on my practical and a perfect score on my chocolate-peanut butter pie. The bad news is that about 10 minutes before I walked into class I got a call that my grandfather had a heart attack and is in the hospital in Wisconsin. So yeah.. I found it terribly hard to concentrate on what I was doing after that. I’m still waiting to hear more news—no one really knows anything yet except that he is in intensive care and waiting for test results. How I still managed to do relatively well on my pies is a mystery.
I was all ready to wake up this morning and go for a long run but the fact that I didn’t get to bed again before 1:00 and, of course, naturally woke up at 7:20 meant that instead of the planned long run I should just make pancakes instead. And so I did. Chocolate chip-walnut-banana pancakes from Skinny Bitch in the Kitch, and let me tell you, they were amazing. Really really yummy. I had three of them with half a banana and some maple syrup and could have probably eaten another three but had to control myself.
I’m headed home this morning—I have to pick Ryan up from the airport around noon and then tonight I have my next “meeting” of my Tampa dinner club at the Grass Root restaurant. I’ve been so excited about this for over a month now….remember the Grass Root? I’ll post the menu again later, but it’s Tampa’s ONLY all-vegan-mostly-raw restaurant. I’ve only been for lunch so I can’t wait to see what dinner is like!
