Wow, how is it already another Wednesday?
This week has been crazy! I thought work wouldn’t be too crazy until classes started again on August 22nd, but – MAN – was I wrong! At least I’ve been productive, and I do truly enjoy my job. Thank god for that!
Remember this past Sunday I went to the Biosphere? Well I never posted pictures, so let me show you some! The Biosphere was originally an experiment to see how plants would do living in a fully enclosed environment, untouched by the natural world. There are 4 ecosystems and we walked through them all:
The Biosphere is massive. It was really cool to see this giant experiment – still in progress!
Okay, I’ll get off my dork-pedestal now. We all know what we’re here for anyway, right? That’s right – it’s What I Ate Wednesday time over at Jenn’s corner of the blog-world!
here I’ve got oats, almonds, almond butter, and some chocolate chips
I’ve been relying a lot on salads (and mixing them up tons of different ways) and leftovers. Here are some examples
brown rice, shrimp, asparagus, grilled onions, grilled peppers (red & green) and sweet and sour sauce
And dinners have consisted of whole foods. Of course…I still do have my seasonings and sauces as necessary
pork roast (from crock pot), half a sweet potato, corn on the cob, and thawed out frozen peas – with some BBQ sauce for dipping on the side.
The first couple of weeks I was really good about snacks and desserts. I’d indulge in peanut-butter stuffed dates, or a sprinkling of chocolate chips on fruit. This week, however, I indulged in some fresh gelato one evening. Mmmmmmm – it’s absolute HEAVEN!!!
I had limoncello – amazing!
What’s your favorite summer-time treat?
