Spaghetti with Clams and Shrimp

2 Sep


I feel like every time I write a new blog post I start off with an apology, well once again I am sorry I haven’t been posting consistently but I have been very, very, busy.

Those of you who read my last blog post will remember that I was in the middle of what I considered to be a mini crisis, after all not having an apartment a month before you are required to move out of your current apartment can be quite stressful.

Well to update you all I have found an apartment (sigh of relief) and I actually just moved in two days ago, and oh what an adventure it was! Continue reading

Shrimp Over Roasted Quinoa and A Good Old Fashioned Rant

4 Apr


So it’s finally that time in the semester, the time I have come to both love and hate. With only 22 days of school left I am overjoyed to be nearly done and I am eagerly looking forward to a three month reprieve from school,¬† but at the same time I am dreading the next 22 days. Within that time I still have to complete 4 projects, write one paper, study for three tests, and of course prepare myself to take five finals……obviously you can see my conflict as to weather I should be jumping for joy or pulling out my hair.

In comparison to my microwaving, take out loving, Kraft macaroni and cheese buying peers, I looked pretty good! But all that changed once I got to Italy and realized the great lengths that the Italian people go through to produce a good meal. Fresh fruit, vegetables, and meat of course are a given. Rather then going once a week and stocking up on groceries, the Italians prefer to go to the market more frequently so that they can purchase fresher products. I have been advised by quite a few italian to frequent the markets rather than the supermarkets, at the market the products are fresher and less expensive! Imagine that there’s actually a cost insensitive for buying fresh products where as in the U.S. you practically pay through the nose to find the same quality product! Continue reading

15 Jul

Ok so I have to admit I have always been a bit skeptical of people who claim they love Pasta, my question to those people are, what exactly is it about pasta that you love, and if I were to give you a giant bowl of plain pasta would you eat until there was nothing left? Continue reading
