I survived my calculus class. When all was said and done, it wasn't so bad. I am excited that I no longer have to spend my evenings doing homework.
If I take another calculus class, I will not take it in an abbreviated six week schedule. I would prefer a little bit more time to let principles set in.
I'm heading to San Diego this weekend for a work conference. I'm excited to get out of town, and I enjoy San Diego. The weather is wonderful, and the conference is going to fun. I always enjoy a change of scenes too.
One evening I'll be going to a Padres game with a coworker. It will be my first baseball game of the season. The conference organizers always have a big party one evening. This year it is going to be at Balboa park. There are musicians, free museum admissions, and loads of food. It's a load of fun.
I'm trying to eat a little lighter now that it's summer. I'd like to loose a little weight, and I don't like heavy foods in the summer anyway. I found this tomato salad recipe on the Food Network website.
The ingredients are 6 cups halved red and yellow cherry tomatoes, salt, pepper, 2/3 cup buttermilk, 1/4 cup sour cream, 1 tablespoon dried basil, 1 finely chopped shallot, and 2 minced garlic cloves. I used dried basil instead of fresh basil. The recipe suggests using 3 tablespoons of fresh basil.
For the dressing, I added the shallots, dried basil, garlic, buttermilk, sour cream, salt, and pepper. I whisked these ingredients well.
I poured the dressing over the halved tomatoes and stirred well.
I added more salt and pepper to taste.
This was a good salad. It was light and fresh.
The flavors were a little acidic, creamy, and herby.
The shallots and garlic were pungent.
It was delicious. It was healthy, quick, and easy.
I it over a few days, and the flavors meld and merry together more each day.
