i just discovered a new favorite breakfast, sure to be regularly included in the rotation: challah, peanut butter, nutella and banana sandwich, buttered on the outside and warmed in the panini press. sooooo tasty!
yesterday i made these homemade granola bars to sell at the AD&L cafe and set some aside for us to eat...they're hella tasty. i did good!
also yesterday, one of my profs (the one whose classes i'm in lurve with) asked me and my friend if we were interested in being his r.a.'s (research assistants) for an upcoming project he's doing! that's exciting! although i feel like i was just asked because i happened to be standing close by. here's how it unrolled: my friend went up after class to ask him to further expand on an upcoming assignment, after she was done, he said, "would you *seeing me*...or would the both of you be interested in perhaps doing some r.a. work?" see! it sounds like an afterthought! although the roomie says that profs aren't bound by the same social conventions as the rest of us. eek! why am i so hard on myself?
i hope this project goes into the summer...because this plus le bibliotheque would mean that i could cobble together enough not to get a full-time job, but work close to 35 hours doing a few part-time jobs...lovely! compared to last summer, when i was working 60 hour work-weeks, it doesn't get better than that!!!
for dinner tonight we're having stuffed eggplant. i cut the eggplants in half, season them, then sear them cut-side-down in some olive oil in a hot pan. then i take them out, and carve out the innies and chop them up, leaving an eggplant boat for the stuffing to go into. i dice up some onion and garlic, saute that in a pan, add some chopped tomatoes, basil, feta and the chopped eggplant innies, and cook that out a bit. season and put them back in the shells and bake them in the oven. we're having this with what i call the "olive garden salad": chopped romaine, tomato, cucumbers, red onion, croutons, sliced mushrooms and olives in a red wine vinaigrette.
