Monday was my department’s Peach Bake Off. A few of us are trying to bring more fun into the year so we set up this contest that was very loosely based off of The Great British Bake Off. We got aprons for our judges to wear and purchased personalized spatulas as prizes. We had our… Continue reading Spatula!
Last week’s dinners were a success – I liked them much better than the ones we made from the cookbook. On top of that, the ingredients cost us $80 instead of $170 like the week prior.

It was even faster than I had anticipated and really easy – I wish my bike commute was that short. I had a gyro… Continue reading Biking, EG, and plants
