Hi Hi Hi!
I’ve missed ya’ll very much these past 36 hours. Every hour in real life is like a month in blog world, wouldn’t you agree? Unfortunately, I don’t have 36 hours of material to make up for my absence (ha…school must be around the corner). I’ll admit it, I am a terrible traveling food blogger. Of course I thought about whipping out my camera and snapping a few pictures, but it just didn’t happen…except during the final stretch of my drive today when I was incredibly bored.
After unloading my entire car, putting a few items away in their places, and looking through 5 weeks of mail (hello, Christmas cards), I hopped back into my car and headed to the health food sanctuary I’ve missed ever so much – Trader Joe’s! I was so excited to not have to spend a penny out of my own wallet this trip – thank you gift cards. My kitchen is now restocked with the TJ’s usuals, and ready for college “on the run” cooking.
Dinner tonight was pesto pasta:
penne rigate with pesto (locally made in HumCo), organic greens (they’re buried underneath the mound of pasta) and tomatoes, creamy chevre & fresh pepper
…and for dessert:
a homemade (by my mama) espresso cookie & piece of TJ’s Swiss 71% Cocoa Dark Chocolate
Chocolate + Coffee = A Happy Hillary
Well, tomorrow is my final day of Winter Break. I have so much I want to get done before classes start, and I have to tackle 5 new syllabi.
– finishing unpacking
– assemble my new bookshelf
– work up a sweat at the indoor playground
– print syllabi & organize school materials
– odds & ends shopping
– catch up with my roomies : )
Hope you’re enjoying your weekend,
