Here I am.

So I've noticed that time likes to go by very quickly. I can't believe that my last post was on the 8th and today is already the 24th. Seriously, where does the time go?? Well I should soon be back to a regular schedule with classes starting next week. So hopefully my posts will be back on a schedule. I've been extra busy these past couple of weeks trying to fit in the last hurrah of summer activities.

Anyways, yesterday's lunch was a quick one because after a 3 hour drive I was starving and just wanted food. Therefore, peanut butter and banana bagel thins it was.

Plus 2 clementines. Then the afternoon was spent unpacking and organizing my life, which got some what accomplished. Later I went to aerobics at the gym and then off to the farmer's market. At the farmer's market I found apricot/mango peaches? They sounded intriguing so I bought some. I'll have to let you know how they taste. I also got a huge zucchini and a white eggplant. The zucchini was the star of dinner. I made Zucchini pizza, and I am telling you it was delicious!!! Seriously make this. I found the recipe here and only made slight alterations. I got some whole wheat dough at the supermarket and let it rise for 45 min. Then I flattened it out on a backing sheet that I had sprinkle with cornmeal. Then I mixed together 1 c. of part-skim ricotta with 2 cloves garlic, and a mix of basil, oregano, salt, and pepper. I just added the seasonings to my liking. Then I spread this mixture over the dough. Next I grated 1 large zucchini and then drained out some of the water. You can do this by pressing down on it with a paper towel or squeezing it with your hands over the sink. Then with the zucchini mix in 1 or 2 c. mozzarella (I only used 1c. and then added ~1/4 c. parmesan). Spread the zucchini mixture over the ricotta. Then I baked it for about 15 min at 450 F. It turned out awesome!

I am definitely going to make this recipe again.

Then this morning for breakfast I'm back to my regular oats.
This one included 1/2c. oats, 1 tbsp. ground flax, 2 tbsp raisins, sprinkle of pumpkin pie spice, ~1c. almond mix and a drizzle of lf maple syrup.
Today I spent most of my time on campus helping out for an event so lunch was just a slice of pizza and a cookie that was provided. I'm not complaining getting to have pizza two days in a row, plus I feel like the zucchini pizza leftovers will be making a reappearance tomorrow :) Now its time for more organizing before heading over to campus again this evening.

Hope everyone is enjoying this fall-like day :)
