Wednesday, April 4th (Baby back ribs day, baby!)

10:00AM Lab Meeting
1 plain bagel (290 calories), 2 tbsp of herbed cream cheese (100 calories), 1 cup of orange pineapple banana juice (8 oz., 130 calories). There were some other yummy looking items like baklava and peeps and yogurt, but I wasn't hungry enough to eat more than a bagel. So my lab is predominantly filled with Asian postdocs, and whoever is giving a talk at the lab meeting brings in the food for everyone. Today my lab boss was like wow, only here would you get an Indian person bringing in passover and Easter foods for a lab full of Chinese and Japanese people. Haha.

3:00PM Stata Center
1 strawberry Special K bar (90 calories). Small snack so that I don't get ravenous before dinner.

7:00PM Baker Dorm Dining
Ribs ribs ribs!!!! 1/2 rack of bbq baby back ribs (6 ribs, ~700 calories, 1 cup of broccoli (50 calories). Mmmm these were divine. Baker makes them dry rub style, and then tops it off with sauce when it's being served. I'd love to know what spices are in the dry rub, because they go together so well, and the ribs come out perfectly moist without being too fatty nor too dry. I actually like these baby back ribs better than the oh so well known Chili's baby back ribs, which I once tried and found to be way too charred and therefore dry. There were so fantastic, they induced a food coma shortly afterwards, so I took a nice long nap :)

Total for today was 1360 calories. Not bad, considering how bad the ribs are for you :P Yum!

    Baklava…yum yum!! One of these days I really have to try making that. Cute story about the 'Indian person bringing in passover and Easter foods for a lab full of Chinese and Japanese people.' That's hilarious!
