Frustrations and free salads

I’m frustrated with my schedule for next semester.  Because I got hosed by financial aid I have to work A LOT this year, which also means I have to take fewer classes.  And there just aren’t many classes offered next semester that will fit into my criteria, so it looks like I will only be taking two classes next semester.  A&P(which I had this semester but dropped and I’m SO glad I did- there’s no way I would have survived the semester if I hadn’t dropped it!) and Food Microbiology.  And since I can only take 2 classes that officially puts me at least a semester behind where I wanted to be with my degree plan.  :(  And I don’t think I’ll be able to take classes this summer(see above note about getting hosed by financial aid).  This super sucks!  Maybe next year the financial aid office won’t be so incredibly horrid to me and I can take an extra class or two to make up for this year…

Anyway, enough with the heavy!  Who wants some FREE SALAD?!  Like forever ago foodbuzz/fresh express sent out a bunch of salad coupons and I completely forgot about them!  I found them the other day and I was like yipee!

P.S. thanks foodbuzz and fresh express!!!


Last night I had this really yummy salad for dinner…

Spinach, Annie’s Goddess Dressing, mushrooms, carrot, chickpeas, tomatoes, and sunflower seeds.  NOM!


Well, gotta run!  I’ve got juice to juice, a paper to write, homework to do, and a test to study for!



  1. Well, I love fruit on my salad…grapes, strawberries, dried cranberries or raisins. I also love nuts…any kind really but especially pecans (I am a Texas girl afterall), walnuts, almonds and sunflower seeds. A good salad would also have lots of veggies…sugar snap peas, radishes (hmm…my favorite), carrots, cabbage and beets. I really like cottage cheese on my salad too. And a good dressing…blue cheese or (my personal fav) raspberry vinegarette! Taa Daa!
    Love you peanut!

  2. I forgot to say tomatoes too…although I rarely get tomatoes because my daughter loves them so much, out of the 8 tomatoes plants this year, I think I got 3 total grape tomatoes…she ate them off the plant before we could even get them in the house and washed! Love the girl.

  3. I like my salads pretty plain… lots and lots of lettuce – butter is my favorite but I also get green or red leaf – plus a bit of parmesan cheese and light sundried tomato dressing. At least that is my standard go-to salad. If I’m making it a meal instead of a side, same lettuce, carrots, cucumber, grape tomatoes, pepperoncinis, green olives, celery, onion, maybe some shredded chicken, and Annie’s mustard vinaigrette.
