Oh boy. Man, spring and into summer is one of the busiest times for a field technician! I have been going for far too many days in a row that I’m really in need of a break…thank goodness this weekend I get three days off! Woot woot!!!
But, even though I had to work on Sunday, it didn’t really feel like it…because I was out hiking part of the Pacific Crest Trail for work. What could be better than that for work?
It was absolutely breathtaking! I can’t wait to do it again…next week!
I hiked in from the other side of that mountain (pictured below) somewhere…it’s basically over three miles away from where the picture is taken!!!
And although it was fun to be out there working in the wilderness, I was scared to begazzles that I was going to come across a bear. I even thought I had at one point when I heard something crashing in the bushes. I ran back about 50ft and ducked into the bush to watch whatever this big creature was come out of the brush…and it was a COW. Gosh, my heart has never beat so fast!
The weekend was full of good foods…and I am glad for it. I have been in such a sandwich/food rut that I’m well…getting sick of them…and trying to come up with some great salads and stuff to take out in the field! I do have a small cooler to keep things cold a bit but it’s kinda hard…because half the time I forget a fork. Dangit!
This meal was probably one of the best meals of the weekend…well, those enchiladas were pretty good. Anyhow, I have been craving PIZZA like no other mother. I’ve been putting it off because well, pizza without cheese just doesn’t compare and since I finally tried out the Daiya cheese on the enchilada’s I had to try it on pizza.
Shizzam! I’m stoked that this stuff tastes so good and gives the pizza a real pizza feel. I topped mine with marinara, squash, artichoke, basil, spinach, meatless meatballs and Daiya cheese. Bahhh…I want it again! It had a tad too much salt in it though…because I was feeling it today. Blah.
Alas, I had that great hike on Sunday that was 6.5 miles long and on top of that a great 4 mile run today with my running buddy and 2 miles of hiking for work!!! I’m loving the endorphins!
So, I need some awesome combos for sustainable non-sandwich lunches!!! (Mags, send those recipes you mentioned my way, k? Thanks!) I’m open to anything that doesn’t have dairy since I can’t have any!!! I’m ready to try some new things too! It’s just a matter of finding it in my dinky town…hahaha!
