Last night, a few of the girls and I went over to our friend Elle’s house for crepes!
Elle is the oldest in our group of friends (which basically consists of all the runners in my grad program!), so we have nicknamed her granny. She is totally living up to being an awesome granny ;)
(My nickname is “mama” since I’m the second oldest! Heh)
Check out the old school Betty Crocker cookbook Elle was using:
Soooo yummy. Yes, even RD’s-to-be eat crepes with nutella sometimes :) It’s all about balance, right?!
Speaking of balance, here’s my packed lunch for school today :) All ready to go in my cute green Target lunchbox!
First up — a tempeh pita sandwich!
I’ve decided tempeh is the most filling sandwich topper, ever. I had a similar lunch on Tuesday and it kept me full for ages!
On a piece of toasted pita bread, I layered a serving of tempeh (raw — yes it’s fine to eat this way), sliced tomato, avocado, ketchup, and mustard. Yum!
I also packed a small apple (which will probably become a midmorning snack), and a clementine, to have with my sandwich:
Afternoon snacks are carrots and celery:
And a Larabar. Love this flavor:
And I’m off! It’s going to be a busy day because after class I have to pack! I’m heading to TEXAS bright and early tomorrow morning for my friend and former roommate Jessica’s wedding! Remember when I visited her in Washington State in January?
Jessica and I actually met on Craigslist, and now I’m a bridesmaid in her wedding! Isn’t that fun? :) My college friend Sarah and I were living together in Arlington outside DC after college and looking for a third roommate — and the rest is history! Sarah is in the wedding, too!
Jess and her fiance live in Washington State now, but they are actually both from Texas — the wedding is outside the Houston area. Yeeeeehaw! I think I might need some cowboy boots… ;)
Catch you guys later from the SOUTH!
