Well, welcome Wednesday. I am so glad you are here. Just means the week is half way over. Which I need it to be.
You see, we’re leaving tomorrow. Yes, leaving for a work trip. This kind of sprung on up on us last minute. Oh say…. 2 days ago! WHOA!
I thought I was gonna get to go to Fitbloggin. But God obviously had other plans. In fact, I actually won a ticket to Fitbloggin. Did I tell you that?
Yep, I won a ticket about 2 weeks ago. I was stoked! I really wanted to go. I really wanted to go just to meet people and hug BLENDS (blog friends). I know, selfish, but true. What I didn’t take into account want that this ticket was only a ticket. It didn’t pay for food, airfare, or hotel. So I did what any blogger would do. Begged for a sponsor, pleaded in fact. I found no one. Sad face. I searched high and low in hopes that some company would sponsor me. But I think I was a little late to the game, as most companies already had sponsored bloggers going.
Oh well I said. There’s always BLEND 2013. I figured this was a sign that I needed to stay here, work on making extra money (cause we ALWAYS need that), and keep healthy bite orders flowin.
Well, little did I know that God had other plans.
He’s quite clever like that.
We received an email about 3 days ago. An email from one of my husbands athlete’s he coaches. She needed help with an race she is putting on and she needed some help with her ironman training. Oh and of course, some good cooking.
We were her go to. I would help race direct, cook, etc. and the hubs would coach her and train few others. The perfect duo. The perfect JOB opportunity.
We took it, in fact, we jumped on it!
But there’s a catch. The house where we’re staying has no kitchen. Actually, it’s under construction. It was funny because I got this email saying that the house has no kitchen and was I okay with that? Would I freak out if I had no place to cook for everyone?
Guess what I said? …..NOPE! Not a problem. I thrive off this stuff. No kitchen, no problem. I’m bringing a blender and rice cooker in my bag. No joke.
So a rice cooker and mini blender. Yep, i think that will do.
Lots of cold food meals like broccoli slaw, hummus, and turkey. Rice, quinoa, and oats in the rice cooker. A little hemp and love grown granola bowls, protein shakes/banana smoothies, canned fish and salmon on GF bread, Chobani yogurt and fresh fruit, and eggs that you can cook in microwave. Sounds good to me.
I’m thinking I might need a few of these kombucha cocktails to get me through it, but I’m ready.
I’ve got my game face on and I’m well hydrated.
So, does this count as falling into a good habit? Sporadically leaving the country for a last minute opportunity? Sure, why not.
Thanks Jen for letting me jump on it this week.
Have you ever had to cook for people without a kitchen? If so, what’s your go to meal?
I’ll post where we’re going Thursday. Hoping I get to post a bit while I’ll there, but not for certain yet. And if you’re going to Fitbloggin, have fun and hug each other for me please. <3
