Ok, promise not to hate me. Ok? Ok.
Remember how I told y’all about my college’s wacky schedule, otherwise known as the Block Plan? Well, after those 3.5 weeks of a class are up, we have 4 days of freedom (Wednesday afternoon to Monday morning) where we can go do whatever we want. These are called block breaks and they are the perfect (and damn well-deserved!) vacation before the next intense class begins.
So yeah…I’m going to Las Vegas. Mwahahah! Just for 2 days, but it’ll be my first time AND my first time drinking in public as a 21-year old (I know, my bday was more than a week ago, but I haven’t had time to go out yet!) with some of my fellow 21-year old girlfriends.
But first, here’s how last night went down.
After I completed my paper in the afternoon, I decided it would be a fabulous time to make some tofu!
Mixed the almond milk, nutmeg, ginger, cinnamon, & vanilla…
Chopped the tofu:
I removed the tofu from the marinade with a slotted spoon, doused the it in a mix of brown sugar and shredded coconut, and popped it all in the oven at 375!
Ok, wait for it.
Oh hey! Look who it is!
Topped with nutritional yeast. Apparently I can’t have sauteed vegetables without it now!
And since I’ve been on a mission to finish the spinach, I bet y’all can guess what I had for breakfast.
Oh yes, but not your typical green monster! I woke up with a little bit of a scratchy throat. Since I’m the only roommate in the apartment that hasn’t fallen ill yet (I credit my vitamins!), I blended an orange in instead of a banana. It mostly worked, but it was much more juice-like and I got a few bites of pulp. I didn’t hate it!
I’ll be back by Saturday; expect wonderful party pictures this time! Viva Las Vegas!
Questions: 1. What’s the best vacation you’ve ever taken? When I was in high school, my family won a raffle through our library to stay in someone’s Paris apartment for a week! It was such a treat to stay right in the thick of the city, without the bustle of fellow Americans. I’ll be back someday!
2. Do you have passionate views about pulp? I used to DETEST pulp in my orange juice. Now I love it! Come to think it, I think I opt for chunky texture whenever I have the choice now, whether it’s yogurt…or peanut butter…
