How can we already be approaching the end of January?! Am I the only one in shock??
I realized I haven’t had a life update post in a while, and found some time to do a ‘lately-style’ post. Here’s what I’ve been up to in the midst of this January whirlwind!
1) I’ve been indulging in my Quest Bar cravings, and decided I might as well be earning some Vitamin Shoppe points in the process.
2) I’ve been booking flights while feeling nervous and excited at the same time. Interview season for grad school has officially arrived!
3) I’ve been having more fun with the good ol’ dehydrator. I’m getting closer to my goal of finding the “perfect” dehydrated yogurt concoction. This try, I used one cup of pineapple Chobani, and scooped out dollops and pressed them into smaller circles. I also only dehydrated them for 9.5 hours. They came out chewier than my first attempt, but still crispier on the edges than I’d like them to be. They were condensed with pineapple flavor though!
As for the sweet potato chips, the “fleshy”part had a rougher texture, but the flavor was out of this world. They reminded me of a rougher/earthier version of those Terra chips (which I like too, by the way).
Speaking of yogurt, I’ve also been loving this flavor of Chobani Flip (Almond CocoLoco —> fun name too!)
4) I have been trying to hop on board the coffee-n-creamer bandwagon, but so far, I still prefer trusty ol’ milk in my coffee. I’ve only tried the International Delight samples for cappucino, half-n-half, and a zero calorie creamer…but still…
This week I plan on doing a lot of planning and prepping for my first interview (!!) in twelve days…I’m excited and nervous at the same time, but the feelings come in waves that alternate with each other. I’m just going to work on finishing up January prepared, confident, and ready for what’s scheduled in February :)!
How’s 2014 been so far? What’s been going on in your life lately?
