It’s Saturday night and I’m writing a blog post, why? What are you up to?
To clear up any confusion, I’m recovering from a crazy week of internship. This past Thursday was my Cafeteria Lunch Special: All Around The World. We had to create a menu around a theme of our choosing, and I wanted one I could find lots of recipes from. Mine looked like this:
English breakfast scone,
African Yam and Peanut Stew (<—Amazing by the way)
Thai Tofu Coconut Curry
Maple Sugar Pie
I really wanted to have some pictures of my menu items, but would you believe my camera decided to not work?! I know! It was tragic.
But overall it went well, a few glitches were to be had but mostly it was a success. The cook may have mixed up the curry pastes, so I had an emergency Save-On run in the morning and the tofu for the Thai curry (a green curry) was dyed pink, but c’est la vie!
It was an interesting experience, but now it’s past, my paper on it is mostly written (first draft anyway) and I’m on to the next project.
I’ve still been finding time for cooking. I made some roasted garlic hummus last weekend:
Delicious! I mean, I could tell it was made from avocado, but honestly everyone else said if I hadn’t said “it’s vegan and has avocados” they wouldn’t have known. My one friend did, apparently because “her mom tried sneaking vegetables into desserts all the time.”
Now that I’m not so consumed by this project I hope to get back to a more regular blogging experience. So fingers crossed it will happen.
