Yesterday my 8AM class professor sent out an email to make sure that we checked our email in the morning, in case she canceled class because of the impending big bad storm. While the weather report was looking pretty promising before I went to bed last night, I did not have much hope when I looked out the window:
But I checked my email anyway, since that’s what I do. I presume that my professor lives up near Hartford or something, because she mentioned a pile of snow outside her door in her class cancellation email. We have to be in class for an extra half hour tomorrow, but that will be okay.
With the fact that there was no actual snow on the ground in New Haven and there wasn’t an announcement yet about my 10AM class, I decided not to go back to bed. Instead, I decided to make waffles. Specifically, the Pumpkin Waffles from Vegan with a Vengence. Unfortunately, I did not bother to look up instructions for my waffle iron and I had never used it before, so they did not come out pretty. A picture was not taken, though it was eaten anyway.
Still with a bunch of time on my hands and no further class cancellations announced, I decided to make myself a nice lunch for later, rather than just throwing some food into a bag. I busted out the Laptop Lunch bento and went to town.
Salad with carrot, cucumber and red pepper; cherries; carrot sticks and salad dressing; and half of a peanut butter and jelly sandwich. Also pictured is the water bottle with lemon water and my precious Diet Coke.
That leaves dinner. I bought some brussels sprouts at Trader Joe’s the other day, and found an awesome recipe to use for them in Veganomicon. The recipe there calls for an awful lot of oil, so I didn’t use quite as much, and I used blue cornmeal instead of standard because, well, wouldn’t you if you had blue cornmeal hanging around? The rice is simply one of those shelf-stable pre-made rices from Trader Joe’s, and I also made oven-fried tofu. All very good, but I put far too much on my plate. I’ll have to finish it tomorrow.
