Oh my gosh two weeks until Christmas!!! And I have only two presents yet! Luckily my boss approved my vacation request so I’ll have two weeks off commencing next week Friday. A little grace time 😉
Today I am going to give a talk about the role of diversity in my job. I can’t tell you how much I am looking forward to this – not. It hasn’t been my task but since my colleague can’t go today I have to step in. But in the end it’s a good thing because it’s a series of job talks for Master’s students and I am all up for career counselling. First and foremost that’s exactly what I do as a profession.
Yesterday was all consumed by preparing my presentation and drinking coffee whilst trying to sort out the contract situation. I feel like I am doing nothing else and all the effort is pretty worthless so far. But at least I found out that the case is submitted to the big bosses for approval and now all we can do is wait and cross our fingers. Exactly my thing 😛 But let’s speak of something nicer: food <3
I am still enjoying my mother-in-laws Christmas Stollen. Best pre-Christmas breakfast ever. Unfortunately I made it almost through the entire loaf by now. Luckily I have the recipe
I love oranges but I am a lazy bum and hate to peel them. Clementines make a nice alternative. And a Spicy Lime Raw Bite made it a decent snack to fuel my morning.
For lunch I had some Thai Curry leftovers from Monday evening. Provided by the god of curry itself – my husband Pre Crossfit I had my morning snack again. Yeah don’t fix what ain’t broken 😉
Crossfit left me pretty exhausted and I had set my mind to making this Paleo Nacho Plate. So when I came home I calmed my ravenous tummy with some unpictured christmas cookies and then we made sweetpotato chips, salsa, guacamole and ground beef. It took forever but was oh so worth it! Seriously this was an epic day of food!
As always many thanks to Jenn for hosting the food fun!
Today Stefan and I go on a proper date – only the two of us. Hello fried goodies consumed with the hand. No shame here that’s who we are 😀
Hope you all have a nice Wednesday.
