Spring Break '08: Lots of relaxing, adventures, and much needed sleep!

Two posts in one week, this is a new record for me for this year. Today is the last day of my srping break, that means one huge two day long bio Ap final, and two different midterms, await me next week. I am planning to go study once I finish this post...

My spring break consisted of a lot of great adventures ("vegan ventures", if you will). One of the days, I took the train to New York City for the day with a friend. I have never been in the city alone before but I manadged to navagate just fine, with out getting lost! We had lunch at Teany, a great veggie cafe with 98 choices of tea!
Chocolate cheesecake from Teany. Perfect, not too sweet. I would have wanted a more intense dark chocolate flavor though.

I also took a trip to the beach for the day. It was the hottest day of the week, even though it rained on and off. I just had to see the beach, it was a nice preview for summer. Hope everyone is doing well, enjoy my darkly lit food picutures below.

Kung Pao Tempeh (from vegetarian times) with sugar snap peas and barley

International quinoa salad (from Fat Free Vegan Kitchen). I had a lighting issue.

It feels so weird to press the "new post" button after so long. So how is everyone doing? I cannot wait to check out everyone's blog and see what people have been up to in, and out, of the kitchen.

As for me, I have been crazy stressed with homework. Most of the work has been coming from my bio AP class which ends next week. I have no more homework to do for the class and I just have to study for my final and then for the AP test in May, but I no longer have the constant everyday homework load for that class. That class will be replaced with an easy current topics in biology class for the last quater of the year, which I am very exicted for.

My computer had a virus and everything was erased so I lost most of my unposted food pictures. The computer runs on windows 98 and had been running xp but once it crashed, i had to keep 98 on for a while until i was sure the computer was virus free. I can only get pictures out of my camera on windows xp. Very complicated. Oh yeah, I am on spring break right now, i am not going away or anything but it is such a nice break!

The one picture I still have:

It is amazing chocolate cake my friend made for valentines day. SOOOOO GOOOD!

Hope to post again very soon.
