Deep Breath

This will be over soon, right? It has to be!

I have 2 interviews this week. Tuesday phone interview and Wed-Fri campus interview out of state. I also need to do a large 2 day experiment Mon and Tues so it's done before I leave! I'm headed to work in just a little bit to get started! Next week, I'm teaching a food science class at the high school (we're doing a protein experiment! I'll post the results, but I'm not sure I can take pictures!).

 I know, I'm  a bad blogger right now, but I'm going to ask that you pretty please forgive me. I am constantly living in limbo and waiting for the next thing that I need to attack and accomplish. Once I get a position, I'll be able to settle down a little bit.

I have been taking pictures, so I'll share a quick one with you now. Thursday was St. Patrick's Day.We didn't go out, but we did festively celebrate the start of the day with a special Angela inspired breakfast: a Shamrock Shake!

Green smoothie with a twist! Plus, topped with chopped chocolate and placed in a chocolate-drizzled glass! This was the fiance's cup - you know I rocked it in the travel mug. It's the only way I know how to eat smoothies!

Shamrock Shake for 2
2 bananas
1 c almond milk
1/2 tsp vanilla
3 c spinach
1 scoop vanilla protein powder
1/2 c water (to blend)
2 drops mint extract (to taste)

chopped dark chocolate and chocolate drizzle if you please

It's a nice switch from the fruity smoothies and would be a good dessert or bedtime snack!

Ok, gotta go. I'll try to get an autopost up while I'm travelling - Sage Caper Chicken. It's delicious, cheap, and healthy! But I can make no promises. Thanks for your patience!
