As much as I love Fall, I’m so not ready for summer to be over yet! My transition to school this year was a weird one. I usually move back to school about a week before classes start, so I have time to get situated before jumping in. This year, I didn’t have to move back (stayed in NYC for the summer), but I returned to the city at 1:30am the night before classes started. So I literally had no time at all to prepare.
Needless to say, I’ve been a bit all over the place the past few days, and have not had much time for normal life things. Like sleep. Or working out. Or grocery shopping. I need to get a new routine going, because I can already feel the craziness wearing me down. Talk to me in a few weeks.
Right. What I Ate. Since I haven’t had any time to take pictures of eats within the last three days, I thought I’d share my labor day weekend food adventures. The last blast of summer.
(today, this button lies. I promise I’ll do it next time)
Tuna salad salad from Panini Panini in Michigan City.
one of the most delicious slices of carrot cake I’ve had in a while! all it was missing was some nuts…
mom ‘n dad’s cedar plank salmon (mom preps, dad grills. one of the perks of being home)
with rachel-made salad and broccoli.
bratwurst (yes, it’s been a while), pickles, tomatoes, more salad. grilled brats were always lunch on weekends at the beach house, and this time I really wanted one. craving satisfied.
our contribution to the Labor Day BBQ – homemade hummus and pita chips! and carrots of course
a strangely delicious salad from a local chicago restaurant – it was supposed to be hangar steak, but I got grilled salmon instead. and omigod those crispy chickpeas were delicious!
Did you have any great eats over the holiday weekend?Are you holding on to summer, or embracing fall?
