Leaving on a Jet Plane

Good morning! Just a quick post before we head to the airport-- we're off to Washington, DC for the weekend! Yay, v-a-c-a-t-i-o-n!

After my double breakfast yesterday, I hit the salad bar for a plate piled high with veggies. I loaded up with a little bit of everything: greens, spinach, broccoli, asparagus, jalapeƱos, edamame, red and green peppers, cauliflower, cucumber, shredded carrots, mushrooms, and wasabi green peas.


A very colorful lunch from above...


The Open House had a number of receptions and opportunities to eat really yummy food yesterday. My coworker and I split a piece of lovely lemon cake. The cake was covered in vanilla frosting, and layered with lemon pudding and even more vanilla frosting. Heaven!


My hair appointment ended up taking a lot longer than expected, so by the time I got home, I just wanted something quick for dinner. My stomach was grumbling the whole time I was at the salon-- it was loud too! Dinner was a grilled (using olive oil) ham and cheese sandwich with buffalo sauce. I swear, the buffalo sauce was a great addition. Mal, however, thinks I have "eclectic" tastes.


The April Fool's Day joke that lives on...

I arrived home last night to Mal playing video games and drinking a cocktail... a interesting greenish tinted cocktail, which actually turned out to be a "Caucasian" (or "White Russian") made with green milk! At first, I was confused when I saw his drink, but then I remember and started cracking up. He just glared at me-- of course, he was only kidding... he still thinks it's hilarious. :)


We're off to DC! Hope that everyone has a very enjoyable weekend! Be back on Monday!

"Eclectic tastes".. that's great! Whenever my grandma sees (but never tastes!) my sister's or my food, she always just says "that's interesting."

Have great time in DC! I don't know if you saw this comment earlier, but are there lots of farmers markets in Boston? Maybe any close by to NEU?

Buffalo, GREAT idea! Look, it's an Irish Russian (hmmm, that makes little sense.)
