Berry Berry quite contrary

The best snack EVER is blackberries and raspberries. Also try adding them to yoplait light french vanilla yogurt. I love it soooo much. Okay it's Sunday at 2pm and I just got up so this post has to be super short. It's actually sunny today so I think I'm going to eat the rest of my blackberries (haha) and head down to the park down the street to go on a walk. Actually, it might be super cold. That's the bad part about living on the top floor of my apartment. I can't step outside to see how it feels very easily!

Gingerbread Fam

These gingerbread cookies were made by my friend Hillary! They are too cute. I ate the 2010 man, but I'm pretty sure the other two have gone stale because I just set them next to each other like a little family and look at them everyday instead of eating them...

You know you have good friends when they share yummy cookies!

Pasta, pasta.....and more pasta

One of the downfalls of living and cooking on your own is that if I go out and spent the money on ingredients for a decent recipe, I feel that I need to eat all of it. Why can't they sell more things in single sized portions? For instance, salad. When I want a salad, I would like to enjoy it maybe one evening or two with my meal...not everyday until the leaves turn slimy and green. One trick I use is to make a big portion and then freeze the rest. Those that know me might remember the time I made lasagna while living at Centennial Village in Raleigh and ate it for nearly a month.

On to the point of this post, I made spaghetti, with Bertolli mushroom and garlic sauce, added extra fresh mushrooms and green pepper and some grated parmesan that was on sale in the cheese section. With that I had a salad with romaine lettuce, sesame seeds, and the new ginger dressing I bought from the sushi section of Kroger (note: it does not taste like Japanese restaurant ginger dressing at all). Final addition was the Hawaiian King bread MMMMMMM. and, voila, had my dinner. And to prove my point below I will post a picture of the exact same dinner I had 2 nights later.

6 months later...

I've been awful at updating this blog.

I have been thinking about turning it into a food blog, since most of my life revolves around school and going out to dinner (and I doubt anyone's interested in school).

So. I get paid Friday and we'll see what restaurants I end up at/if I take pictures and remember what I ate.

I think it would be fun to keep track just for myself. I'm all about looking at some food pictures. I'm hungry right now actually.

Well, we'll see what happens!
