Good morning loves!
Happy Friday! (happy weekend for me! I will never get tired of having Fridays off in grad school).
Does anyone have exciting plans for the weekend? My Saturday involves errands (mainly: laundry. It has been an embarrassing amount of time since I last did laundry. As in – down to my last few pairs of underwear sort of long). And Sunday my parents are coming up to visit! Always exciting when I know I’m going to see them.
Oh, and I LOVED doing the VLOG yesterday. I thought I would find it really weird, but honestly, it was a lot of fun! I could definitely see myself doing more of those in the future. And the consensus seems to be: The Canadian-ness comes out in the word “out” – interesting.
I like to say the protein pancake never fails me, but yesterday it did a little. I’m using milk chocolate protein powder right now, and mixed with cinnamon and maple extract – not the best combo. I still ate it, because really, when do I waste food?
I had a dinner meeting last night. Dinner meeting = comped dinner out – I can’t say no to that, can I? It was held at Piston Broke, the local gastropub.
I was eyeing a chevre salad, but decided last minute to switch to the Pub Club Sandwich – chicken breast, peameal bacon, field greens, tomato, roasted red peppers, harvarti and avocado mayo on marble rye bread. I ordered a garden salad on the side.
When I got the plate, I had to laugh. I ordered the mayo on the side – because I like a little bit, but I don’t like it when my sandwich is absolutely dripping with it, you know?
That is an inhumane amount of mayo. Like – probably closing in on half a cup. Who uses that much mayo for anything? It made me giggle. The sandwich was really good – the only issue was that they used a bit too much butter on the bread; so it turned out a tad greasy. I still put away half of it though.
Overall, it was a nice dinner! We were meeting with the Graduate Students’ Association of the main campus (Brantford is a satellite) and got a chance to talk to them about different activities concerning both campuses. I also got a chance to chat with some other girls and make more plans for Chicago.
Definitely a great night!
And now – have a nice Friday!
<— Do you do your laundry at appropriate intervals? With having to go to the laundromat (no laundry on site) we tend to put it off as long as possible. Oops.
<— Do you usually request changes to your meal? I might get a thing or two or on the side (dressings, etc.) but I try not to mess with it too much – I figure if the cook wanted it there, it probably has some purpose!
