a far flashback friday
Life (which right now can better be understood as “thesis”) has been consumed with school related to-do’s as the semester winds down.
Though, that’s probably the wrong phrase to use because it seems like it’s winding UP.
I didn’t want to disappear for too long from my blog and thought this might be a nice opportunity to showcase a couple of older posts!
Here are a couple of my favorites:
First up is a series that I am determined to continue is “The Travel Diaries.” The two that I’ve posted so far are from my spring break last year when I was backpacking through Europe and was in Italy with my sister (read: one of the best times of my life).
Just taking a look back at them has made me want to add more as soon as I can! It also makes me really wish I had some gelato right now.
Sure, I hit up Ben & Jerry’s earlier this week for their free cone day but it’s just not the same…
That time I went to…Cinque Terre.
That time I went to…Milan.
Next up I thought I would leave you with some food. Honestly, I know. How can I possibly give you some recipe posts when I just sent you down a memory trip to Italy and the best Italian ice cream and pizza of my life? I’ll make it up somehow.
Depending on what you’re in the mood for (let’s face it, you know you want some good old-fashioned pasta and meatballs, right?) you can pick from protein power house foods like peanut butter for dinner or get tropical with some quinoa.
Hmm…Protein would probably be ideal for me right now with my thesis and all instead of gelato…
Or you can venture into a breakfast mode and make yourself the easiest pancakes ever. The ingredient list is so short it’s ideal for those mornings when you “just remembered” you were supposed to go grocery shopping on your way home last night.
At the end of the day (heck, during the day!) we all want some dessert. Don’t lie.
Bring on the Girl Scouts inspired cake-balls!
No fear if you’re short on time and can’t get together some cake balls just yet. Go grab some cereal and marshmallows instead and get your snap, crackle, and pop on in the microwave for an easy, quick single serve rice krispie treat.
While you click away, I better finish getting over this bridge called senioritis, which, spell-check, is a real condition.
You know it’s bad when you break out the corny jokes.
If you had to pick one country to travel to and visit for a week, where would you go first? I could go for a tropical location right now. I’ve never been to an island!
If you had to pick one type of food to eat for a whole year, what would you pick? Oooo, that’s a tough question for me. I would take it back but I’m interested in your thoughts!
