Daily eats of a Torontonian student

Happy warm and sunny Friday! March 6, 2009

The weather’s gone topsy turvy this week.  Monday it was -15 (-26 windchill), today it’s +18!   Too bad it’s not going to be so warm all weekend…and it’s going to rain…

This morning I grabbed a quick to-go breakfast of an Elevate Me! Matcha Green Tea and Cranberries Bar. This is probably my least favourite of these bars simply because I’m not a huge fan of matcha powder. But of course I still had to buy and try it, because it would have been just silly not to buy one of each flavour when they were so cheap, right?

The lunch I packed the night before included left over stirfry (romanesco concerto veggies, corn, wax beans, tuna, teriyaki sauce) as well as the last piece of pizza crust flatbread.

And for snacks I had an juicy Fuji apple, crunchy carrot, cucumber slices, and sweet red pepper strips.

When I got home I grabbed a snack of  Kashi Seven Whole Grains and Almonds bar, ditched my long sleeve shirt for a tee,  and went out to enjoy the warm weather on a walk to the grocery store with the roomie (I kept the winter coat, unzipped, I’m not that crazy).

I love that there is a large grocery store (Loblaw’s) that manages to have an abundance of reasonably priced organic produce.  The bananas, sweet potatoes, and onions were all the same price (or cheaper, for the potatoes) as the not-on-sale conventional items.

I spent 4 cents shy of $20 on that lot.  The only non-organic item was the canned tomatoes, I chose to save a dollar, and some salt (mainly the salt).

When we got home I reheated the last of the tuna stirfry (it’s gone, I swear!), and later had a some of the Carribean Rice and Pigeon Peas that the roomie was cooking up.  It was really good, there was coconut milk involved.

And now I’m going to relax.  I tried to do my taxes, and I mostly did them, but my school’s student services website is closed until the morning, so I can’t get my tuition amounts.  What website has opening hours anyway?  Oh well, I wasn’t going to file tonight anyway because I want to change my address first so my parents don’t need to continue to deliver my government mail to me, but I can’t do that until CRA mails me (aka the parents) a password to let me sign on online  to make the change  some time next week, I hope.  Why do governments have to make things so complicated?
