Back at School!

Hey everyone! I was gonna post last night, but after grocery shopping, unpacking, and cleaning my suite, I was pooped. Either way, I am currently back at school right now! We don’t start classes until January 25, but we come up 2 weeks early for Track and Field Training … Even though we have been training since August, we don’t actually start competing until the Winter, so our Indoor Track season starts January 16 and then we go until Outdoor Track in May… So basically now is where it kicks into High-Gear and Pre-Season is COMPLETE. Practices actually start Monday, So I’m awaiting my WONDERFUL Roomies return tomorrow!! So basically these next 2 weeks consist of going to Track Practice/Lifting for a couple hours each day, then going back to the dorms to hardcore CHILL for the rest of the day. It’s amazing… Really, Not boring at all. Last year, we had a scavenger hunt, and me and Dana (You will all meet her tomorrow so I’m not referring to her as “My Friend, Dana” anymore, shes just Dana… same with “My Roommate, Lauren”…just Lauren) hehe:)… Anyways, me and Dana had a Prank War with the guys that lived next door to us: guys shaved their heads, shaving cream was legitimately everywhere, and the end result was a decent sized snowman outside the boys’ door . Good Times…

Cute, Aint he?

Oh, and I almost forgot the best part! We get to COOK (No dining halls open) for the next 2 weeks, so Dana and I will be cooking bloggie-inspired food for the next 2 weeks- We love everyones recipes! So we are super pumped:) Does anyone have any suggestions on Easy, Fun to make, Delicious, & Healthy foods we can make? We have 14 Days of Experimentation and are TOTALLY Up for suggestions!!

ANYWAYS, enough of that and on to FOOD:)
The last few days have been pretty hectic so I haven’t had a full day of food to record- So I’m just gonna post pictures of some of the yummy things that I have eaten since the last time I posted…

1. I tried Steel Cut Oats!– Never had them before, and not too shabby! I got the quick ones from Trader Joe’s, but they were still good… very nutty flavor to them.

2. Had overnight oats for the first time in a Month. AMAZING. What can I say- these never let me down…ever. I always let them chill overnight will Greek Yogurt, Cinnamon, and a Banana- then add everything else in the morning. This time they were Ultra- Banana-y because I added TJ’s Banana Cluster Cereal, which by the way, is PHENOMENAL.

Overnight-Soaked Goodness:)

3. An amazing trip to Wegman’s Fresh Food Bar (Blanched Broccoli and Cauliflower, Red Peppers, and My FAV Indian dish- Channa Masala with un-pictured Brown Rice)

4. Accompanied with a lovely trip to Wegman’s

ahhhhh!! (Cue Heavenly Choir Music)


My desk at la escuela con lotsa delicious food… Hopefully all of this will feed me for the next 2 weeks, but we shall see! Theres cans of beans, veggies, delicious bready products, hummus, 3 pounds of apples, and huge Tub of Fage (So long, Chobani, you will be missed!)

Speaking of Chobani, (Is this like a commercial or what!?!), Katie over at Faith, Food & Fitness is Hosting a Chobani Giveaway!! Get on that!!

Alrighty, well I am off to check out what everyone else has been eating, then I will be spending most of the day catching up on my Jersey Shore deprivation… Oh the greatness of trashy reality Television. I love the 21st Century:)
