Lauren and the Apple Cider Donuts

There are so many other things I need to be doing right now. If I look at my planner right now, I'm probably going to have to pencil in when I'm allowed to breathe..... Yet here I am! Let me just say, I am very disappointed with this so called "autumn" this year. What an … Continue reading Lauren and the Apple Cider Donuts

Tianxin and La Pupuseria

I think it's a beautiful thing that a Norwegian/Irish white girl and a Chinese girl can walk into a Salvadoran restaurant to get food without even the thought of how none of this would be possible without being so beautifully connected, especially by food. I mean, all of the waitresses still looked at us like … Continue reading Tianxin and La Pupuseria

Eggplant Parmesan in the Tiniest of Kitchens

During spring break, I spent way too much money on food that also happened to be awful for me.

With almost no free time, except for when I'm not sacrificing … Continue reading Odd Thoughts: September 26th

All the yelling and talking back doesn't take away from how much fun it really was. … Continue reading Odd Thoughts : August 7th

Farmor’s Birthday

Today was my grandma's birthday, a day after my father's. I can't imagine giving birth a day before my own birthday. She's an incredible woman who deserves a lot more credit than she's given. I'm not talking about giving her lots of gifts and presents. Actions and choices speak much louder than objects and words. … Continue reading Farmor’s Birthday

“Mega-Mooch” : The Nickname

Of all the countless nicknames and shortenings of my name, which already is pretty darn short (Megan, it's five letters people), the one that has stuck the longest is Mega-Mooch. Why couldn't it just be Meg? I can deal with the childish Family Guy references all day, but not this. Mega-mooch will probably be on … Continue reading “Mega-Mooch” : The Nickname
