Apparently I’m all about the sandwiches these days, last week was Bacon Avocado Egg Salad Sandwiches and this week it’s Chipotle Chicken Salad Sandwiches. My creativity for meals and writing has completely been sucked out of my brain and replaced with post-post modernism, codecs and action verbs (which are the secret to directing actors, in case you were wondering). It’s that time of year, friends, finals. I’m officially over the hump, 3 down, 2 to go.

No matter how prepared I am with recipes that are ready to share, when I’m bombarded with 5 exams in 6 days, I hit a major case of writer’s block. I guess it’s because I don’t really have much to share since all I’m doing is studying. And going for gelato. It’s all about balance, people! Two of the exams I wrote were the type of exams that no matter how hard you study, you’ll get in there and be completely floored by the questions. You’re not left with that relief feeling after the exam, it’s more of an oh-shit type of feeling. Then you have a little chat with your classmates and realize that nobody knew what they were doing in the exam and you feel a little better. Then you blast 60’s French pop on the drive home and you’re feeling much better.

In other news, and a great way to end a not-so-great week, I’m heading up to the first Food Blogger’s of Canada conference this weekend…I can’t wait to meet some fellow Canadian bloggers, and enjoy the delicious food of Hockley Valley especially after weeks of not so yummy, bland food. Maybe I’ll even learn a few things along the way. Be sure to follow me on Instagram and Twitter to keep up with what I’m doing and follow that hashtag #FBC2013.
