Welcome aboard the Amtrak train 148 Northbound to Stamford, CT!
I have my book and ticket stub
Before I could board the lovely train I had a less eventful day than morning…and that is a good thing!
To brighten my spirits mid morning I broke for a 2 pump pumpkin spice latte and white chocolate ginger biscotti from the cafe downstairs.
Giant salad with organic greens, carrots, snap peas, maters and mustard balsamic dressing. I also had some kashi gold with and LC wedge. Due to my mid morning snack I saved the pear for my train ride, but I don’t think I will get to it because I want to save room for dinner! I am getting in an hour early because I got on an earlier train (last ticket btw!!!!!) and therefore will be in CT at a reasonable dinner hour. I can’t wait to see my momma!
Thank my boss for letting me leave at 3 or I would still be on the later train. Thanks Elaine 🙂
Once aboard I settled in for some Food INC. I have seen the movie, but I really wanted to read the book so I could be more informed on the topics. Books always seem to tell more than the movie, especially ones like these…there is just so much to know! I already have my next 2 books picked out from references. Fast Food Nation and Food Politics.
About an hour into my trip I had to break into my large snack of the thumb cutting causing apple!
I made a leftover homemade waffle sandwich from PB and finger hating apple. I also had the other part of the apple on the side (keep in mind that is a 1/4 piece of the apple, told you they were huge!)
WellI have about 2 hours left until home so I am going to get back to my book maybe write another post and who knows maybe even visit the snack car, but that is doubtful!
Check ya later!
