It’s CJ again writing from Texas Tech University!
Today I made a REALLY BIG breakfast at home before I headed over to the campus. (They say everything is bigger in Texas… I know the portions are!)
Since I had so much food this morning, I had a smoothie for lunch, which was a nice meal substitute. Do smoothies go by different names in different countries? I never thought about that until today.
It came from a little gelato place in our Student Union Building called “Cold Corner.”
My smoothie was called the “Strawberry Safari.” (They all have fun names like that on the menu.)
It was made with: orange sorbetto, apple juice, raspberries, strawberries, bananas, a yogurt base, and ice. They put all the ingredients in a blender until the ice is smooth, like slush.
It was quite good, and since it was very hot here today (mid 90s Fahrenheit), it was wonderfully cool as well!
Here are my ratings…
Food-o-meter: 9/10 (It’s very sweet, so not 100% healthy.)
Mouthfuls: 36 (sips and gulps!)
Courses: (Drinkable) Main
Price: $4.32 US or £2.76
Pieces of Hair: 0 (unless they got blended in and I didn't know…)
Guns Up: 2!
I am so excited to see the progress on the kitchen in Malawi! I hope y’all remember to keep supporting Mary’s Meals over the summer!
Dear Calamity Jane,
I have been cycling all day. It's fun going downhill but very hard going up. I even cycled down some steps. It was very bumpy and I have mud on my legs. I had a big breakfast as well. I had fruit with yoghurt and cereal. I was hungry at lunchtime and I don't think a smoothie would have helped me get back on my bike. Here's my lunch.
It is a roll that we made at the picnic table. It's a Lancashire 'bottom of the oven' muffin and in it I had some pepper and onion soft cheese. I also had a little cake and some fruit and nuts. The grapes were very nice and not crushed in Mum's rucksack. I was still thirsty after I had finished my water.
Health Rating- 6/10 but I was cycling!
Pieces of hair- 0
I don't think a smoothie is a proper lunch. Please please please have a good lunch tomorrow. If you want to drink your lunch please have some soup.
Tomorrow I am cycling to a castle where they filmed Harry Potter.
