Deferred. Appropriate not only because this WIAW is waaaay late…but also because I got notified today that I am being deferred by my top choice school until regular decision.
Not exactly what I expected, but to tell ya the truth, it’s not really crushing me or anything. I’ve applied to a lot of other great schools and in all honesty the less pricey schools (unlike my top choice) and the schools that are giving me money are starting to look more and more attractive. The more I think about it, the more 100’s of thousands of dollars in debt looks pretty bad.
Like I said, I’m not letting it get me down! I mean seriously, who wants to be sad on WIAW! And what a great day it is!
For one thing THANK YOU ALL SO MUCH! You are quite a knowledgeable group! Your comments on my last post were incredibly helpful. Honestly you all rock my world! The time you take to comment thoughtfully and insightfully is really incredible.
And now to the good stuff…
*sorry I’m late Jenn!*
I’ve been loving Israeli couscous for the past few weeks…so quick and easy for a convenient meal! So I thought I’d share my usual combination for an awesome couscous salad.
Mediterranean Couscous Salad
-1 cooked serving of Israeli couscous
-1 tomato, chopped
-1 tablespoon salsa
-1+2 tablespoons tomato puree
-2 tablespoons humus
-1 tablespoon nutritional yeast
-assorted veggies (I like red onion, chopped cabbage, chopped celery, chopped mushrooms, and diced zucchini)
Take chopped veggies and mix with 1 tablespoon of tomato puree. Microwave for 3:30 to 4 minutes. Add other ingredients (except nutritional yeast) to the veggie bowl and mix until evenly combined. Serve hot or room temperature!
Yummy! And easy! Especially if you make a big batch of grains for the week. For a little more protein I like to add beans, lentils, or even tuna!
