(Not so) super soup.

I just got done with my social policy midterm! Woohoo! Now I just need to do a take home midterm for social work practice and study for my research midterm on Wednesday, but those shouldn't be so bad.

This morning I was pretty excited about something that I actually haven't eaten for a long time... oatmeal! I bought some instant kind because these earlier mornings really don't give me time to make regular oats. I am so not used to getting up to be at work/internship at 9! These are maple and brown sugar made with skim milk and I added some walnuts.

I also had an apple. I like this instant oatmeal because it's natural. And it's Wegman's brand!

So I've been planning on making tortellini soup ever since I had some that was really good at the hospital where I have my internship. I found the recipe that I wanted to base it on and yesterday I got all of the ingredients that I needed at the store. This recipe looks so simple, right? It's just a bunch of stuff all thrown together. Well, it was simple, but when I got it out of the fridge for lunch, this is what I saw:

Pretty much all of the liquid got absorbed! I guess it all went into the tortellini. I ladled some out and added some water to it, but it (duh) got really watered down.

Oh well. I ate the tortellini and some of the veggies out of it. I guess I might try to buy some more vegetable stock and add it as I eat it. Any other suggestions?

Now I'm eating a PB and banana sandwich since that "soup" really didn't do anything for me.

I really want to know: what's the biggest thing that I have missed while Ive been gone? With you, with food trends, with major happenings, or whatever! I want to get back in the loop!!

I have a second class at 2, so I need to get ready to go soon. I hope everyone's day is going well! Monday is almost over!

  1. Hi, thanks for checking out my blog! I love the subtitle you have - I couldn't have said it better is currently the story of my life :)...ahhh you can't go wrong with a PB&J sandwich - a great standby - I probably eat them 3 times a day - just finished one as a late-night snack...well actually like 1 hour after my filling dinner when I thought I was done for the night (seriously, why does that happen)...and I 'may' or may not have thrown some chocolate in with that...ugghhh seriously it's not even Halloween yet :(. Anyways, I digress, please keep checking out the blog!! I look forward to finding my niche and becoming a famous writer one day and get whisked away to the beautiful California Hills...hahaha - I wish - I'm a bit of a dreamer if you couldn't tell ! (one of my several downfalls :)
