I am currently in Illinois! Exciting stuff I know. I’m (re)looking at schools to transfer to next year and this is our first stop. Then Texas on Thursday. And Seattle next week.
P.S. I am using the WordPress app on my phone so if things look a little funky, blame the app.
This morning started wayyyy to early. I like mornings and all but a 3am wake up call is something nobody wants to hear. When we got to the airport, I got some food at Starbucks: banana chocolate protein smoothie and oatmeal with raisins and nuts.
Then we had the 4 hour flight to Chicago. I spent 75% of the time sleeping so it was pretty uneventful.
Snack was consumed on the plane:
Banana and almond butter (both brought from home)
When we got off the plane, both my mom and I were ready for lunch. Chipotle to the rescue! Vegetarian bowl with brown rice, black beans, fajita veggies, mild salsa, corn salsa, lettuce, and guacamole. Hit the spot.
We made sure to leave some room for dessert because after seeing iCream on Food Network awhile ago, I knew I wanted to go. Basically you choose everything you want in your ice cream and then they mix it together using liquid nitrogen. I got soy milk ice cream with coffee and pecans. So good! I will be back for sure.
My mom and I decided to forgo going out to dinner and get some stuff at the market instead. We got crackers, carrots, a cucumber, hummus, and apples.
Come back tomorrow for a delicious recipe! I’ll be off enjoying beautiful Illinois 🙂
