Mission Statement

Culinary Adventures in a College Kitchen

Tuesday, October 4, 2011


I learned a valuable lesson this weekend. Distance makes the heart grow fonder and the mind forget really annoying things. Saturday morning I was scheduled to take the LSAT at a university about an hour from my apartment. My parents offered to get me a hotel room and stay with me the night before, which seemed like the perfect idea. I would have some company that morning. Dad would pay for my coffee. Perfect!

Perfect, huh?

And then it was time to go to sleep.

Spending more than half of my year away at school, I had forgotten one little thing about my parents. They snore. A lot. I swear that their snoring is almost like an art form. They literally snore in time with each other.

First Mom.

Then Dad.

Mom again.

Dad for the crescendo.

If it didn't keep me up half the night I would have been impressed.

I appreciate the lung capacity, but pipe down!

Miraculously, even with the snoring symphony keeping me up, I was marginally bright eyed and bushy tailed in the morning.

Bright eyed and bushy tailedddd!!!!

I think it was partially because I knew I was on my way to never having to look at another LSAT question. I also knew that night I would be back in my apartment without the snore-a-sorouses.

Love you, Mom and Dad!

This week I haven't had a lot of time to cook as I have been stuck under the weight of my eighteen hundred LSAT books. Sandwiches were my best friend. Here were two of my favorites!

Ham and Cheese with Caramelized Onion

Havarti Cheese
Dijon mustard
Caramelized Onion
Whole Wheat Bread

Goddess Sandwich

Marinated Tofu
Broccoli Slaw
Goddess Dressing

Any of you know some snore-a-sorouses?
