May I have some more? April 8, 2009

Work that is…

Only one more day left this week! Which is great because I’ve been ridiculously bored at work, practically nothing to do. The thing is, the senior engineers know I have nothing to do, I’ve told them, but they are all gone in meetings all the time and don’t have anything to give me. It’s times like these I miss school… It wouldn’t be so bad, not having anything to do for 7.5 hours a day, but it’s the fact that I waste another 2.5-3 hours commuting to a different location to do nothing that really annoys me. At least there are plenty of blogs out there to entertain me, and I get paid ๐Ÿ™‚ And there is a project that should start soon, as soon as some of us do a one-day training course, a site inspection that will involve field trips and hard hats and everything ๐Ÿ™‚

I was starving when I woke up this morning so I fixed up a really big breakfast to fill me up. I spread strawberry, blackberry, and acai jam over TWO slices of rye bread with muesli, and topped the plateful with a slice Fuji apple. This sweet breakfast did an excellent job of making my stomach happy.

For lunch I had a salad of romaine, red and orange peppers, snow peas, and jo tsai/garlic chives. There’s whole grain dijon under the veggies, and honey mustard on top. I think I’m going on a mustard kick, it’s making such a good dressing (my mustards aren’t very spicy at all).

That was followed but a pile of carrots, celery, and delicious basa fish.

Then in the afternoon I snacked on honeydew melon and blackberries. I think this honey dew is the best one I’ve ever bought! It’s super flavourful without being too sweet or too soft. So refreshing. I’m so happy I paid the extra dollar for a honeydew instead of a cantaloupe in the grocery store last weekend!

For dinner I retrieved a serving of TVP chili from the freezer and served it over a bed of kale sauteed in olive oil and orange juice concentrate. That has to be one of my favourite was to cook kale, not bitterness left. I might have also quickly gnawed through a carrot while I was waiting for the chili to heat…

And dessert was some strawberries and half the pistachio Larabar Mark sent me for winning the Eggs BSI a couple of weeks ago. The bar was so good! It was much more moist than other Larabars I’ve had, I wonder what kind of dates they use… And later I decided I was still hungry so I had the other half too ๐Ÿ™‚

    Oh wow, breakfast looks amazing. I don’t recall the last time I had rye bread!

    I totally agree, honeydew is totally superior to cantaloupe. I don’t get why the cantaloupe is so popular – honeydew all the way!

    Breakfast looks really pretty as well ๐Ÿ˜€

    I’ve also had jobs with days where there is seriously nothing to do — it’s so boring to just sit and wait for 5PM!!!
    All of your eats look amazing today!
