Is it weird that since starting culinary school, my own meals have become progressively crappier? Granted, it’s only been two days- but I see a bad pattern starting here.
Case in point… my dinner:
Dehydrated thai noodles eaten at the computer while blogging. Like right now. At 10:30.
Class was kind of a snooze-fest. We went over measurements, conversions, and every detail you could ever want to know about flours, shortenings, thickening agents, milk, sugar, cheese and eggs. I realize that this is basic first week of class stuff, but after 4 hours I was about to die.
I did learn 2 interesting things:
- All honey contains a miniscule amount of botulism, which is why you can’t feed it to babies.
- There is an emergency doorhandle on the inside of the school’s industrial oven. So if I ever get locked in there, it’s all good…
Since obviously no cooking was done in this house tonight, I thought I might share with you a few products that have made me VERY happy this summer.
1. Whole Food’s Lime Bars
These are the best frozen fruit bars ever. I scored the last box at WF last night. They are pretty substantial, last a while, and taste just like a margarita on a stick. And just ask Brian- any food is better on a stick.
2. Cedar’s Garlic Artichoke Salsa
I don’t have a picture of this because I ate the entire tub in one sitting last weekend and then buried it at the bottom of the trash in shame. This is almost more of a bruschetta than a salsa- lots of big chunks of tomato, garlic and artichokes. It would be amazing over grilled fish. I found it in the refridgerated deli section at Sprouts but I think WF carries it too.
3. Method Olive Leaf Body Wash
I’ve shared my obsession with all things Method, but this is my favorite. I bought this shower gel religiously up until about a year ago, when it disappeared from the Target shelves But now it’s back! And in a bigger bottle with a pump top! It has a great light, non-girly scent (Brian uses it too) that lasts all day. I know this doesn’t really fit in with the food theme of this post, but go buy some and you’ll understand.
Okay, off to bed… after a lime bar.
PS- No class tomorrow night! Done for the week. Hopefully I’ll have an exciting dinner post for you.
PSS- WOOT! I just went to post this and we’re officially over 5000 views!
