Yesterday for brunch I headed over to one of my local favorites — Guglehupf Bakery and Cafe! The occasion? A blogger meet-up!
Diana (in the middle) was in town for Thanksgiving and had plans to meet Sarah (right) for brunch — when Diana saw via Twitter that I would be back in town on Saturday night, she asked if I’d like to join, too!
I’m sure glad I did! I love Guglehupf and I’ve only been there once before, with my friend Kristi back in August. Yum yum.
I was feeling more lunch than breakfast, so I ordered the beet sandwich. I heart beets.
The sandwich included beets, a blue cheese spread, walnuts, and arugula. YUM!
Plus a side salad 🙂
Thanks for the brunch date, ladies! It’s always fun to chat blogs 🙂
I spent the rest of the day catching up on school work, watching 16 and Pregnant, hitting the grocery store, unpacking, doing laundry, and all that fun stuff. I only have 2 more weeks of school left until Christmas break (!) and it’s going to be VERY busy until then!
For dinner, I was craving something with lots of veggies 🙂
I started by sautÃ©ing some bok choy and red peppers in some minced garlic and a drizzle of sesame oil.
Once the bok choy and pepper were mostly cooked, I added in some leftover cooked string beans and this tofu that I picked up from Trader Joe’s:
Then, I added in some ketchup, soy sauce, and ginger powder, to create a sort of sauce.
Veeeery tasty! Served atop a pile of brown rice.
I have two servings leftover in the fridge so it’ll be nice to have some healthy meals to quickly reheat during this busy week!

Time to get back to school work! I went for a 4 mile run this morning with a friend (it’s a good thing I wasn’t alone, since it was one of those “My legs feel like lead. I hate running. I want to walk the whole way.” sort of runs.) and now I’m going to get some work done before heading off to school. I’m meeting the girls to go over our Biostats homework and then we have our very last (sniff) Food Science lab. Sadface. Tonight we are making candy! I’ll be sure to take photos 🙂 I have another school meeting after lab, too, regarding a group presentation we’re giving tomorrow — it’s going to be a long day! Ta-ta for now, friends 🙂
