For any of you that follow my sporadic updates on Twitter, this past week has been less than fun on the school front. I had a 10 page paper due last Thursday, a problem set and reading for economics yesterday, a 12 page paper due today, a project proposal due this Thursday, plus a book to read for Thursday. I went to sleep at 6 am this morning and woke up three hours later so I could finish my portion of said project proposal. This girl doesn’t function well on three hours of sleep, so I trekked over to baked having just rolled out of bed– in fact, still in my pajamas and slippers. I thought I timed my arrival so I would a) miss our morning coffee rush and b) not run into my morning regulars, who often see me half-functioning anyway. Let’s just say that that didn’t go quite as planned …
In any event, my jam-packed academic schedule has left me zero time to cook. I’ve been doing embarassing things like eating baked potatoes apple-style, relying on spoonfuls of peanut butter for protein, and microwaving mysterious rocks of frozen vegetables in an effort to consume something slightly green. And we won’t even get into the quantity of coffee I’ve been drinking.
Since I can’t offer you a recipe or a food adventure, I leave you with this slideshow of lovely photographs I snapped at the Dupont Farmer’s Market a few weeks ago. I didn’t have my baby Alpha at the time, but these snaps still look pretty and serve as a tasty reminder of this summer’s bounty.
