I've been eating a lot of these:
Organic gala, how I love thee.
And most importantly, a TON of these:
Adorable, right? His name was Percy.
Funny thing: When I was studying at my desk in the morning, I heard lots of car horns honking, so I glanced out my window and saw three deer crossing the highway. Awkward. So what did I do? What any normal, easily distracted from studying student would do: stand in front of the window for five minutes and attempt to capture a decent picture of them. And guess what? I did. Lame, right?
Good... (I love the truck in the background...)
At my dinner Sunday night we went to a sushi restaurant called the Fuji Grill. I knew I wanted sushi, but I also wanted to try something different, so I ended up ordering the avocado salad, mixed veggie roll (with brown rice, yay!), and seaweed salad. I was most excited about the seaweed salad because I needed some greens in me! I don't have pictures from the restaurant, but I did have leftovers...
The avocado salad was basically a mixed iceberg salad with a half avocado sliced on top, sprinkled with sesame seeds. A ginger-orange-carrot dressing came on the side. The veggie roll was your standard carrot, cucumber, avocado filling, but it did have some sort of pickled veggie in it, though I couldn't identify it. It also was light on the brown rice, which was excellent because I don't really like rice. But the seaweed salad? Delicious. It had a sesame-soy dressing on it and was again adorned with sesame seeds. It didn't taste fishy or anything, just delightful. I think I've found my new favorite.

I ate it with chopsticks...beautiful.
My food processor and Magic Bullet have been busy this week...I'll show you what I "made" in the very near future. Don't get too excited, though. The convection oven is still not fixed, so I did all I could with what I could take from the dining hall, which is...fruit, haha.
Have a great Thursday!
Questions: Have you tried seaweed salad? If so, what do you think of it?
