Bon Appetit

Since I have been unemployed, I have discovered that I really enjoy reading.  Today I started reading "My Life in France" by Julia Child, and last weekend I read "Julie and Julia" by Julie Powell.  The latter is one of my favorite movies, which has made me want to know more about Julia Child.  I am a confessed foodie, I love Food Network and all the famous chefs, love Gordon Ramsay to pieces!  Reading these books (and the Italy section of Eat Pray Love as well) is making me HUNGRY!  More than the dishes they are preparing, is the way these writers describe food that makes you realize how it really is art.  I don't get that feeling from my turkey bacon and eggs, but it tastes good all the same, and I do try to arrage it in a pretty way on a nice plate, even though it takes mere minutes to eat. 
Knowing I couldn't (or wouldn't, for that matter) prepare myself a lunch full of french words I can't pronounce, I opted to at least make something different from what I always eat for my 11:30 snack.  I made a vanilla-orange-cinnamon protein shake with oatmeal and flaxseeds and blended it all up til it was frothy like a milkshake.  The flaxseeds didn't blend, but they were perfect, popping inside my mouth like fresh sesame seeds.  What a great shake.  Now, what's for my next meal?
I am feeling a little better today, my lungs don't feel like they're on fire today, just feel a little bruised, which I think is an improvement.  I finally got the lady to call me back to schedule my shadowing at the retinal specialist, and that will happen tomorrow, which I hope will lead to a job as an ophthalmic assistant.  For this evening, I plan on doing much of the same as I have been doing so far today, relaxing on the couch and reading.  Happy Wednesday, and Bon Appetit!
