- Bad news about trip in China (my bf told me that the trip is canceled because of some schedule problems. :( So, I will stay only in Shanghai with my family.)
- Got a speed limit violation ticket. $40 of fine! grrrrrrrr.........
- No trip within China which means I'll spend more time with my family and more time to work.
- Dinner was great. And I had a good ME moment reading RealSimple and my favorite dessert.
I'll adopt this simple daily calculation of good and bad moments of the day. I think this helps me to have an overview of my day and not focus only on bad things. Although when I received those bad news, I was sad, but looking my day overall, it wasn't that bad. I'll definitely keep doing this. I think mi had something similar on her blog.
I worked hard today, almost 9 hours long which made me to have a terrible headache, but I'm glad that I did it. I want to have as much as possible done with work before I leave, so I can enjoy more time with my family in China. (although the probability of having to work there is very high).
Okay. Eats. Breakfast at 6.30am
- 1/2 cup multigrain
- 1/2 cup almond breeze
- 1 large chopped apple
- 1 tbsp flax meal
- vanilla + cinnamon
- 1/4 cup fage
Moring snack was two lindts. Chocolates are great to deal with research related stress. ^_^Lunch was last leftover bamboo chicken, sauteed romaine lettuce and rice. I packed two packets of BB for afternoon snack since I went to school this afternoon.Back home around 6.30 I was starving but really tired. I was struggling whether to cook dinner or just grab something quick. I decided to prepare a quick but delish meal to reward myself of a long day of work. I made a veggie-risotto-stirfry
- 2 cup cooked barley
- 1 cup frozen corn
- 1.5 cup mushroom
- 2 cup broccoli
- 1/3 cup chopped green onions
- 1 packet Goya seasoning
I also made a seaweed, tomato, egg and sesame oil soup.
mmmmmmmm...............yum yum~~ I enjoyed so much. It was so good that added a point to Good thing of my day.
After dinner, I had my favorite dessert: frozen strawberries with fage, a peppermint tea and the new issue of Real Simple. I like this issue more than the previous one, specially the section of What's in your Not-to-do list for the next year?
Thanks everyone for my party-meal suggestions. Up to now, I have planned to do the followings: hummus with veggies, another bean dip, chipas, choco-nuts petit fours, casserole, apple crisp. I don't think these will be enough for 15 people, so, please more suggestions. And does anyone have good recipes for apple crisp and casserole?
