This is about the time of year that some college freshmen start noticing their pants are a little tighter and hiding miserably behind their coats. and some sophomores, seniors and out-in-the-real-world people too.

I’ve been adjusting to graduate school and not posting much because, well, mostly everything I eat is boring. I cook quick easy ordinary things for myself.

Project of the day: delicious tokens of appreciation

Well hello again! It’s been some time because I’ve been busy applying to, getting into, visiting, deciding on, and settling things with graduate school.

Project of the day: Nice group meal

You know when you need to make a meal for people, and you want it to be fancy and delicious but without spending too much? Got you covered :)

Meatballs! I put them on rolls to make subs to much approval, but you can put themĀ on top of spaghetti or skip the sauce and add them to soup… However you serve them, meat balls are delicious! And when everyone finds out you made them yourself, they will be incredibly impressed!
