Happy Wednesday everyone!
Hope your week has been going great for you. Summer is approaching and yet it seems like it’s still winter in San Francisco. As I’m writing this post it’s cloudy and gloomy outside. Then again, San Francisco isn’t really known to have seasons at all.😛
Anyway, I’m going to share a WIAW post today that actually documents my eats from Orientation Day! Now is a good time to share that I will be attending nursing school in the Bay Area and I will be starting next Tuesday! Ahhhh! I’ve experiencing so many emotions and feelings during the past couple months from pure joy and gratitude to intense fear and anxiety. My mind is still trying to wrap my head around the fact that I am about one year away from becoming a registered nurse! This is an accelerated (not abbreviated, as the instructors emphasized) program that is one year because I already have a Bachelor’s in another field and have completed all the prerequisites. Today will be on Orientation day 1 (of 2). It was nice of the staff to provide us with breakfast and lunch, otherwise we’d be starving and grumpy students since it was from 8:30am to 3:30pm.
Breakfast was not pictured because I was focused on trying to meet new people and socialize. It consisted of half a bagel with cream cheese, diced fruit, and coffee.
Lunch consisted of a delicious turkey sandwich with a side of chips and a gigantic oatmeal raisin cookie that’s almost triple the size of a standard one. The cookie was my favorite part of lunch.
After a day of sitting too long, I decided to treat myself and get a salmon open-faced sandwich from La Boulange. This is one of my favorite dish to get from this cute, French cafe. It has a yummy creme fraiche spread on the bread with cucumber slices, and generous portions of smoked salmon and capers on top. YUM. I also got a warmed bread pudding which was absolutely delicious. It is made with their delicious and buttery sweet brioche bread soaked in their house custard sauce. One of my favorite aspect of this bread pudding was the sweet crusty exterior. In my opinion, the taste is reminiscent of a Chinese egg custard tart!
Later in the evening, I snacked on some dark chocolate I recently purchased from Trader Joe’s. I don’t know if I’ve ever had 85% dark chocolate so this took some getting used to. Because it’s not very sweet, I am able to savor and eat a little at a time.
Have you ever considered going back to school? If so, for what?
What is your favorite cookie?
Do you prefer dark chocolate or milk chocolate? Or white?
Comment down below, I’d love to know!
Have a wonderful rest of the week!
