Well, Thursday was kind of the opposite of Wednesday in terms of ideal-ness. This nonstop rain has put everyone in such a funk! But, no need to dwell on Thursday (since today is Friday, yay!!), so we’re just going to go featured contributions style. And the contributions began bright and early yesterday morning when Lillian offered me a ginger almondine cookie.
I enjoyed dipping it in my yerba mate immensely, so I had two more 🙂
Then, Inginia offered me a few blueberries, and those were lovely paired with the office almonds (and followed by several more scoops of almonds straight):
Lunch was a return of Olivia‘s soup and a piece of her this-is-what-heaven-tastes-like crostini.
Among other things, I supplemented the soup with the last bit of all my coworkers’ sancocho, a Dominican soup with everything under the sun, including plantains, sweet potato, and big giant hunks of yucca:
A butter cookie from Beryl:
(Plus a bite of unpictured oatmeal raisin cookie from Lawrence)
This arrived for Nydia from a secret admirer:
But Nydia wasn’t at work yesterday, so I couldn’t eat all her fruit. Instead, I ate too much candy from Belkis’ candy jar (way more than pictured):
But I made up for it when I ate a banana in class that also came from Belkis 🙂
Oh! One more quick little thing. I didn’t finish my soymilked yerba mate yesterday, so I left it in the fridge overnight. Once again, the vibrant color this morning astounded me!
Even though it’s happened before, seeing this color first thing still makes me so happy 😀
Oh, I lied. One more thing AGAIN! My friend (and occasional guest poster) Gina caught up on all my posts from the past week yesterday, and I had to share this one comment she left about a chat she had with Chris, her husband, regarding my first CSA pickup:
OMG, Chris just made me laugh so hard, I cried and it was in reference to your blog! I said, “I need to go read about Sarah’s CSA pickup” in an excited tone. So Chris said, “What is that, like, a man?” LOLOLOLOLOLOLOLOL! It was probably funnier to me, but still, I guess b/c I was all excited about reading about your “pickup”, he thought I was talking about a guy! HAHAHAHA! Little does he know we get much more excited reading/talking about food!
Hahaha, Gina, that is hilarious!! Thanks for sharing 😛 In a food vs. men competition, who would win?
