How perfect is a Saturday where you can watch all 6 Canadian NHL teams in action, against each other, all day long on tv? Okay, I realize some of you might not think it’s fun, but for me? Perfect! Too bad I should have been studying biochemistry all day ;)
My Saturday started off like any Saturday should – by sleeping, followed by a leisurely breakfast.
Yes, I made another delicious bowl of Katie’s Banana Blender Cereal today. What can I say, it’s freakin’ awesome. Plus I’ve deemed it the perfect way to use up the ends of cereal that get forgotten about. Like today – I put in some puffed kamut. And added some Artisana Cacao Bliss to my toppings.
I kept the accompanying beverage the same – Happy Planet Mango Peach Party.
In my preferred photography location in this house – the dining room.
Even though I wasn’t working today, I made a special trip down to the produce market, so I could check out my shifts for next week. I needed this info ASAP, so I could call my new employers and determine when I can start training there. And again – they effed up my schedule. I told them I can’t work Mondays due to volunteering – and I’m working Monday. I told them I couldn’t work this Saturday due to some other commitments – and they scheduled me then. ARGH. I had them drop the Saturday shift, and figured I could deal with the Monday for this week only. Plus, ya know…I’m quitting and all.
Since I’d bothered to get dressed and all, I figured I would wander over to the grocery store, because that’s the kind of window shopping I’m into. And of course, I found a deal on something I just couldn’t pass up.
I’ve been eyeing up Earth’s Own Almond Fresh almond milk for awhile now. It’s relatively new, kept in the refrigerated case, and is made by a Canadian company. Plus it comes with some pretty stellar nutritional stats.
What excites me in particular is the amount of vitamin D it is fortified with – 45% of your daily value. The Almond Breeze I was buying before has a whopping ZERO.
Why had I not purchased it until now? Because it’s somewhat pricey – usually around $5.49 for 1.89L. But the store had it on for $3.99, which I felt was enough of a deal for me to spend the money on it.
Obviously, I had to try it out.
Tastes good. I bought the original flavour, as I like to be able to use my milks in both sweet and savoury applications. They do have a vanilla flavour as well. I guess my only complaint is I would like to see an unsweetened version, because again, I don’t need my milk to be sweet.
I also whipped up some lunch when I got home, making use of random fridge items.
There was some pork tenderloin that I sliced up, and made some avocado/Laughing Cow smash to go with it.
As well as kale chips and carrot fries, with ketchup.
I love when I can dip all my foods.
And I followed it with a chocolate chip cookie.
I slowly but surely got myself into homework mode. I started by doing the little reading/quiz assignment for my biology class, just to get it out of the way. Technically, it’s not due until 2 pm on Monday, but because of my schedule, I can’t work on it during my break on Mondays, so it needs to be done on the weekend. I also went through all the discussions online for my biochem course, to see if there were any hidden gems of info. And I watched alot of hockey ;)
As my Canucks fought back from being down 3-0, to winning 5 – 3, I made good use of Chinese take-out leftovers for dinner.
I love how the fungi in the Buddha’s Feast look like sea coral.
Once I was onto the third hockey game for the evening, I was full on into biochemistry review questions. Which, of course, required a little brain food.
The chocolately yogurt reminded me of this chocolate yogurt we had in Prague a few years ago. It was SOOOO good.
I eventually took a little study break to get in some yoga. I had planned on a walk today as well, but the rain squashed those plans, so this was definitely needed. Afterwards, it was back to those pesky review questions, and a mug of chamomile tea.
I’ve finished all the review I planned for the evening and gotten this post written, so I think it’s about time I try out that sleep thing. This blogger has to work in the AM tomorrow – before 10! Blasphemy! Plus I need to psyche myself up for handing in my resignation letter – it’s never a fun thing. Night!
