Week 2 of the new job and 4th to last week of this year’s project. Working keeps me pretty busy and I don’t do much that is too exciting after I leave for the day. My office building is highly secure and I feel a little weird taking my phone around to photograph anything. So expect a lot of pictures of the food I’ve been eating for lunch from our awesome cafeterias this week!

One of the specialty stations at my cafeteria was a Macaroni & Cheese Bar. Those who know me know I could never deny myself the pleasure of a custom mac & cheese dish! After I had stood in line for a little, I realized I had mac & cheese for dinner the night before, but promptly deemed it irrelevant and stayed in line to order. I got the whole wheat pasta with ham and chives.

Today I got one of the ready to-go meals because it was a Thai chicken curry dish and I hadn’t had any curry in awhile!

My group at work had a holiday happy hour and white elephant gift exchange. I felt fortunate because I got to be the “second stealer” of the gift I really wanted! In a White Elephant gift exchange, you take turns opening gifts and can steal from others, but a gift can only be stolen twice!

Today in the cafeteria was an “Around the World” special, and we got to try some Moroccan cuisine. Here’s Moroccan-spiced shrimp, couscous, zucchini, and some sort of ball with dates/raisins/etc in it that I didn’t eat. The rest was delicious. I mean shrimp at work?? Amazing.

Hanging out with my friend’s dog. I took this photo on my phone. The quality never ceases to impress me.The subject is also very photogenic.

Another day traipsing around the District! It was 70 degrees and gorgeous out, which is very unexpected for this time of year.
