A Pumpkin-Full Day!
Today is all about pumpkins, apparently. Yum!
I started the morning with some pumpkin & peach quinoa:
- 1/3 c. quinoa
- 1/3 c. water
- 1/3 c. vanilla soy milk
- 1/2 T. pumpkin butter
- 1 peach
- 1 T. pepitas
By the time I got to class, the peach was all warm from the quinoa. It was sooo good. I’ll be making this again for sure!
After our meeting (which is going to make our senior design/capstone project so much more manageable!), I had a half-hour long phone conversation with my mom about my future. Yeah, that sounds like it wouldn’t be a fun conversation, but it was so incredibly helpful. I’ve been freaking out the past few days because I don’t know if I actually want a career in my major. I’m toying with the idea of becoming a R.D. (registered dietician) or going to culinary school, or pursing more on the business side of things.
She made me feel so much better, and calmed me down. We’re going to see where life takes Dan and I. Thanks, Mom! Jenna’s post also gave me some perspective, so thanks, Jenna!
I’m still tired from yesterday’s long day, so a soy pumpkin spice latte from Starbucks was in order.
More pumpkin love to come… hint: my lunch involves more pumpkin butter!
Throwing an engagement picture in there because it also makes me feel better… 🙂
