I ALLLLMOST didn’t write one of these today just because I have about a billion things to do, but I received some VERY exciting news I wanted to share. I didn’t post it on Mango About Town (MAT), but I’m headed off to North Dakota again tonight after work for a girls shopping trip. I’ve been preparing for that and also studying for the grad courses I’m taking AND the most important… working on getting ready for my clinical trial which will be starting soon because I have ethics approval!! aka the exciting news
I’m supper excited that it’s Friday, but I may have to do some work over the weekend (sorry girls!). But don’t worry there will still be plenty of cheap American wine to be had!
Five Things I Ate
Homemade Buttercup Squash and Corn bisque. I added so. much. black pepper. but it tasted delicious.
A cinnamon bun from the freezer from the Whitehouse Bakery – It was cream cheese. Drool.
Pasta with homemade pasta sauce with turkey, mushrooms, and spinach – this was a good one (made by Mr A of course) – I had a picture but it was just the most blurry thing I’ve ever seen. I saved your eyes. You’re welcome.
ALL THE EGGPLANT. We grilled some for dinner and lunches and I also bought two at the Downtown Farmers Market and made Baba Ganouj (Ganoush?). So amazing and garlicy.
Trudy’s pickles! I always purchase veggies from her when I go to the market in St Norbert and I was so happy to see her set up at the Downtown Market too. Her pickles are the BEST – not overly dilly, but full of flavour. #knowyourfarmer
Five Things Making Me Happy
I’ll get the obvious ones out of the way… Ethics Approval! Which basically means I can start recruiting participants and get on with my life.
Girls trip to the states! I look forward to wine and hot tubs and LOFT at 40% off. Need some new office outfits (see above)
This level of preparedness – look at all that food! I was not hungry that day despite being in class for nearly 8 hours straight. Ps check out the colour on that buttercup squash bisque.
