Good morning! This is my final WIAW from the west coast as moving day has come and tomorrow I head to Boston. I spent the weekend packing and tying up loose ends here. Ironically the weather has dramatically warmed up finally here…of course just as I am leaving town 🙂 According to the forecast it sounds like it should be mild in Boston and I avoided the deep freeze there this past weekend.
On Saturday my car left and started the trip to the east coast. I am flying on the red eye after work tomorrow.
Yesterday I packed up some remaining boxes and sent a bag of clothes to Thread Up. I have never used the site before but I’ve heard people raving about it.
I strategically packed all my dishes, Vitamix, and other ‘heavy items’ in my car to avoid paying tons of money to ship them. The shipping company said only two suitcases could be in the car but I took my chances and put stuff on the floor and a few small boxes. I figured if they made me remove it I could ship it but luckily the driver didn’t say anything or didn’t check. Eating off of paper and cheap bowls with plastic utensils now till I leave. Oatmeal in my cheap bowl with oranges but no coffee as my Bodum was packed away in the box.
Lunch was smashed avocado toast, a couple of mandarins, and a small muffin. I was starving and this hodgepodge plate hit the spot. A co worker brought in a huge bags of avocados from her tree but unfortunately I already had a one ready at home. It will be a switch to not be surrounded by lots of local fresh produce soon.
Unpictured mandarins for an afternoon snack.
My plan for dinner was to use up some frozen rice and while I wanted chicken I settled for a can of tuna in the cupboard. I threw some tomatoes in the bowl and topped with some avocado and BBQ sauce (needed some sauce and it was either BBQ or Ketchup in the fridge). It was an odd combo and while it was ok tasting I probably won’t rush to make it again. I’ve found it really difficult lately to eat out with my food allergies and seem to be in a bit of a cycle (a tasty one though) of eating many repetitive/similar meals at home. I am looking forward to perhaps having more options to enjoy meals out in Boston.
I’ve been craving popcorn lately and have been popping the multicolor kernels from Whole Foods lately in the air popper to hit the spot. Munched away while catching up on Top Chef
Ended the night with some animals cookies as well
That’s a wrap for the last WIAW from this side of the country for a while. Next week I can’t wait to catch up and update you on my move and first few days in Boston.
Hope you all have a great week and are hopefully enjoying a short week at work/school!
