We Gave it an Old College Try…Posted: February 8, 2011
Dinner, that is. One perk of working for the university? I get a meal plan at the dining hall(s) on campus 🙂 It’s certainly not someplace that I could eat dinner every night, but when the words “all you can eat” and “free” are in the same sentence, sometimes I (and a hungry fiance) just can’t turn it down.
Except, I guess you can. After circling the dining hall I passed pizza, waffles, cheeseburgers, pasta, egg rolls, cheesy mashed potatoes and a plethora of other “passes.” How did I do this for four years?! Oh, yeah – LOTS of cereal 😉
I ended up with a turkey sandwich on wheat bread with lettuce, tomato, green pepper and onion. I also fixed up a little side salad. And okaayyy, I picked up some fries 😉
But it was all unsatisfying. I ate half of everything. I hate being wasteful.
Oh, there was one thing that I managed to finish…
A BIG bite of soft serve with rainbow sprinkles (duh), 3 pathetic Oreo chunks and a drizzle of caramel. It was just enough to satisfy my sweet tooth without feeling like I had undone my entire day.
On the agenda for this evening?? GLEE, of course! The Biggest Loser is on tonight as well, but that’s a show that I have to watch after it’s been DVR’d (thanks, Mom!). Does the weigh-in really need to take an entire hour? The answer is, absolutely not.
I hope you have a relaxing evening! I’ll see you for breakfast! 😀
Question of the evening: Caramel. Do you pronounce it: care-a-mel or car-mul? Obviously an easier conversation to have while talking with a friend, but it’s a very pressing topic, so we’ll make do 😉
