Meh Start… GRAND FINISH

3 06 2008

So I was really excited to make my dinner tonight only to taste that it didn’t please my taste buds. 😦 I came across this recipe for whole wheat pasta salad. I figured it was a healthy way to combine whole grain carbs & healthy olive oil fat along with a bit of protein. I let it marinate all day long and was totally looking forward to it tonight for dinner. However, when I went for a taste-it wasn’t that good. It wasn’t bad, but I’m really not much of a pasta person. I don’t really gravitate toward Italian food because I don’t really like it. I’m really only a fan of the cheese-less pizzas 😀 haha. Anyway, I was pretty upset because I went out and bought the olives, herbs, bell pepper, and spinach to make this thing and it didn’t turn out. Eh, oh well. I ate a small portion so not to waste food and combined it with broccoli, more of my mom’s kimchi and some sticky rice underneath the kimchi. I topped my broccoli with salsa and called it a meal. I’m pretty pooped today because I was constantly on the go either helping out teachers, renewing my license, going for a run, taking the dogs to the vet, and helping my brother study for his finals. I’m just now settling down.

Lunch was a quick one! I was on the go so I ate a quick bowl of cereal. I also had some broccoli and gazpacho with mushrooms on the side. At school, my friend brought a HUGE bowl of watermelon and I definitely helped myself to about 2 cups worth… it was so juicy, cool, and refreshing. This isn’t the picture, I just found one to improvise 😉

ALRIGHT! NOW FOR THE GREAT NEWS! I came home to change real fast for a run and sitting on my bed is an envelope from my parents. I didn’t know what it was, but I opened up to find…

A PLANE TICKET TO SOUTH KOREA!!! I GET TO VISIT MY MOM’S FAMILY IN KOREA THIS SUMMER FOR 6 WEEKS!!!

This is part of my family’s graduation gift to me. I CAN’T THANK THEM ENOUGH! I WAS SO EXCITED, I’M STILL SMILING FROM EAR TO EAR! I COULDN’T BELIEVE MY EYES!! I get to spend some quality time with my family I never get to see, eat some GREAT Korean food, and enjoy my summer before hard work in college.

I don’t think I’ll even be able to sleep tonight.

Ugh, I hate when I slave over a recipe and then it doesn’t even turn out well.

Wow, you’re so close! If you’re ever in the Dallas-area and want to get lunch or something, let me know :o).

Is that Clifford Crunch? If so, I hate to tell you, but it’s not vegan. It has vitamin D3, which is from lanolin.

What brand pita and tortilla do you usually buy? And salad dressing?

I don’t want to be critical, I am just wondering where do you get your fat from? So far, in what you’ve posted, you are not consuming very much fat… and you seem to be really, really low on total calories per day, too. Please don’t take this as negative; I am a nutrition major, so it’s just something I’m passionate about and something I notice hehe.
