According to my camera, some exciting things happened in the world of my food last Thursday and Friday. I couldn’t bring myself to delete such pretty breakfasts and treats without first blogging about them!
I spent Thursday morning on the balcony with overnight yogurt + golean crunch, mango (free from work donation overflow!), peanut butter, and hemp seeds:
I didn’t even need to pack lunch because I had the Dominican chambre (made by Maria and Inginia) saved from Tuesday, and I enhanced it with a baby bell swiss cheese from Jessica and reject avocados from Rosey:
On the side, I had chips and salsa left from the nurses’ lunch on Tuesday and salad left from Rosalie’s lunch:
When I got home from class way too late on Thursday night, I had a super fun fun fun package waiting for me:
Elisabeth at Jogger’s Life sent me the most thoughtful care package ever to help me get through the rest of my grad school summer session.
I am beyond excited to make my own bubble tea with these exciting varieties and to fancy it up with green tea powder and lychee!
Thanks Elisabeth 😀
Friday morning’s breakfast consisted of half a toasted oatmeal-raisin bagel (courtesy of this work training) from the freezer bag topped with a poached CSA egg and more work donation mango:
I really am in love with these CSA eggs, but I can’t seem to eat them fast enough! I’ve got a three-week backlog. I need to pick up the egg pace.
Also in love with the cross-section:
Lunch at work was all stuff you’ve seen before … but the selection of goodies was new and exciting!
Rosey has been talking about a lady from her church who makes the best tres leches cake ever, and she finally brought some in to share with all of us! Rosey was not exaggerating about this cake. Look at how drenched in milk it is!
Siiiiiiiiiigh, this was amaaaaaazing.
Also on Friday, Pansy brought in some of her famous ambrosia along with gooseberries that she seasoned with cloves and nutmeg:
I had the ambrosia x2 and the gooseberries x7?
And there’s more, as usual. When I got back from my afternoon visit, this was waiting on my desk.

How do you know when you’ve had a day well-spent?
