SWE Fall Ball and Saturday Morning

October 24, 2009 at 5:46 pm 2 comments

Today has been a super-busy day, so this is the first time I’ve had a chance to sit down and blog!

Fall Ball!

The dance last night was so much fun, and Wendy did a great job planning it.  We held it at the Overture Center this year, which was a much better location than the hotel ballroom we’ve used for the past 4 or 5 years.

IMG_3540The “bouncers” with Sally and Jenny D.  Wendy, Jenny G, Kelley and I are the four furthest to the right in the picture; don’t we look like the most threatening bouncers ever? 😉

Actually, security turned out to be a pretty easy job.  We didn’t have anyone who needed to be escorted out, so we pretty much signed people in and gave them their raffle tickets.  People-watching at an engineering formal dance is pretty entertaining!

IMG_3545The Hoyt Street girls, with me once again serving as “substitute roommate.”  Somehow, whenever I hang out with these ladies, just one of the four roommates is missing.  Since I spend quite a bit of time with them, I’m considered the “substitute roommate.”  🙂

I wasn’t that hungry when we left for the dance.  I had a quick Almond Butter, Pumpkin Butter, Apple Sandwich on my way out the door.  My assumption that it would hold me over until I got home was wrong.  Lucky for me, Katie was generous enough to share her Uno’s leftovers with Jenny and I, so we enjoyed some White Wine Pasta.

Giving in to Cravings

Want to know what I recently learned?  If you have a craving, it is best to give in to it.  You’ll stop trying to replace what you’re craving with something less-satisfying.

For the past few days, I’ve been craving Greenbush Donuts.  I don’t like donuts really.  Except for Greenbush.  They are the exception to the rule.  Baked fresh every day, they are perfectly sweet and flaky, without being overly so.  I only crave them about 3 times a year.  Including this past week.

On the way home from the dance, I convinced Kelley and Jenny to stop at Greenbush.  Craving satisfied. 🙂

Today

I had a quick bowl of Kashi GoLean Crunch with Vanilla Soymilk before the Farmer’s Market this morning.  And by “quick,” I mean, “I had so little time for breakfast that I couldn’t even take pictures of it.”  I’m sure you’re all imaginative enough to picture my breakfast. 🙂

I bought a HALF BUSHEL of Hungarian Wax peppers, some of which will be featured in dinner tonight.  And throughout the week.  Actually, throughout the winter.  I’ll be freezing whatever we don’t eat this week for use in warm winter-y dishes, like soups and casseroles.  Yum!

I’ll be back later with details about the Madison Food and Wine Show, where Dan and I spent the afternoon.  It was so much fun!  And we may or may not have come home with 7 bottles of wine… 😉

    Glad you had a good time.
    And I definitely agree with the craving thing. Just eat it and you’ll feel so much better. And then it’s gone!

    Oh my! A) greenbush donuts – such a great indulgence. When I was in madtown we would stop by at 1:30 AM as they were getting rid of old donuts and taking out the first batches of fresh ones- so many deals were made in that little bakery!

    B)things I miss about Madison list: the farmers market is NUMBER 1! I DREAM about that square of goodness 😉
