Hello, hello from Upstate New York!
Even though spring has officially arrived, the lake remains frozen. Before I left practice Wednesday, my teammates said I should drill a hole and hop in for some open-water swimming. It sounded like a great idea to me, but my mom shot it down—ha!
Anyway, it feels so nice to be home! My tiny hometown is basically the exact opposite of New York City, and although I love living there, I do like escaping the concrete jungle every now and then. My train yesterday arrived almost an hour late—you’re killing me, Amtrak!—so lunch was on my mind. (Not that there’s ever a time when I’m not thinking about food, but you get my point.) Luckily, my mom had some Easter grocery shopping to do at Wegmans, so we went there for lunch.
Holy cow—I’ve missed Weggies so much! I planned to get the citrus tofu roll, but it wasn’t available, so I went with a spicy tuna roll, plus a side of roasted mushrooms and asparagus.
For dinner, my family went to Circa, our favorite local restaurant.
Luckily, my sisters and I “like” Circa on Facebook, so we knew there wasn’t wine—and alerted my parents, so we came prepared! Salad and turkey mole for dinner.
Breakfast after my swim this morning was my standard spinach and egg white breakfast sandwich, and I enjoyed a delicious bowl of homemade black bean soup after my tempo run.
Black bean soup never photographs well, but trust me: To. Die. For. I also chased it with an orange.
Speaking of orange, Syracuse beat Indiana last night and advanced to the Elite Eight—woohoo! I’m so happy the Cuse-Marquette matchup will start at 3:30 p.m. tomorrow afternoon; the past games have tipped off around 9:40 p.m., which is past my bedtime. (Seriously.)
I’m going shopping with my sister now—enjoy your Friday!
