I’m a machine + giveaway!


  I’m a machine.  In 4 days, I worked 35 hours! Granted, when work looks like this   

my hut under a tree

and you get to eat all this   

packed and ready to go

and you make $75 tips in one day for doing practically nothing, (no joke, my first thought: I can’t wait to go grocery shopping!!) it’s not all that bad 😉   

So I thought I would do a different post today and show you all the stuff I ate during my 10 hour shift in a hut!     

On Sunday, I packed a bunch of easy food like a pbj sandwich, apple, carrots, bars because it was my first shift outside and I didn’t know if I would have time to eat and I didn’t want it to go bad being out in the sun for so long.    

But, the thing with me is that if I have a lot of food, I eat a lot of food.  I’ll remember that I have a Clif bar and think “mmhm I love Clif bars” and eat it just because.  So basically, I spent my entire shift out there eating and reading (American Wife, from Jenna’s book list! its really good so far!) and selling the occasional hot dog or beer!  It was amazing.    

Then on Monday, I wanted to see if I really was eating all the time so I put the timestamp on my pictures!  So starting with breakfast (no timestamp, my genious idea didn’t come to me yet but I can tell you it was about 9:00)   

Started with a chopped + cinnamoned pear,   

chopped pear with cinnamon

then 2% plain yogurt was added,   

pouring yogurt

more cinnamon was sprinkled,   

very necessary

finally ~cup of nature’s path optimum and ~1/2 cup bran flakes were added to finish this masterpiece   

mountain of cereal

After that deliciousness,  

10am – off to work! Load up golf cart (omg soo fun to drive!!!)  

11am – arrive at my hut.  Set up the barbeque and pop some hot dogs on the grill   

12:07pm – hungry! time for an apple  

view from the hut

1:19pm- Apples just make you more hungry. enter: brussels sprouts, 2 sweet potatoes cut into chunks and 1 zucchini, sliced – all roasted   

my wheels - golf cart (where I sit) and BBQ!

4:07 – Lots of beers and hot dogs later, spinach salad with roasted buttercup squash, feta, cranberries and almonds   

walk up window

5:27 – Umm that salad didn’t do anything. enter: half pbj sandwich grilled on the bbq!   

my kind of hot dog

6:06 – I want the other half.  Who stops at half a pbj?? other half of pbj, grilled of course  

grilled and yummy

7:30 – pack up, drive back to the clubhouse, count till, say bye to jealous friends who had to work inside that day 😦  

8:00pm – dinnertime! bean, mushroom, hummus and cheese quesadilla with more roasted veg  

summer is for grilling

10:00pm – fireworks!  

blurry but pretty

and that was my day! 10 hours of relaxing outside work 🙂  

What is your summer job/career? Are you enjoying it??
