Reading that title, you’d swear I was the member of the family who’s been working full time, going to school full time, and
performing an indentured servitude interning on the side. But alas, that would be my handsome husband, who finished final exams and projects on Thursday.
Clay and I decided to celebrate a little early. Graduating from college is like celebrating a birthday- you can’t just celebrate only once. You celebrate with family, one with friends, one with coworkers, one with every social circle you roll with.
In celebration, I made homemade brownies. Sporting my flirty apron was quite a bit more exciting than the brownies, though. We sorta prefer boxed mix ones… ? Hands over foodie card.
Saturday afternoon, we went on a date to every ethnic food store in Florence- pretty awesome adventure if you ask me! Clay bought some marinades and lots of curry spices at the Asian market, and I got veggie burgers and Indian ice cream. It was my first time trying Indian ice cream, which has a different texture than regular ice cream or frozen yogurt. I got the $1 cup since it was a new-to-me food, but it was pretty tasty- I’d certainly eat it again.
After our journey around the world via specialty food stores, we hit Rebel Pie for delicious brick-oven pizza. Mine had red sauce, mozzarella, green peppers, black olives, green olives, and caramelized onions- so delicious, but so huge! I could only eat three slices (they’re small slices), but it’s not bad left over. We love Rebel Pie and are grateful to see it doing so well- plus Clay can’t wait to help the owner, Alan, out more now that he has newfound free time .
And the best part- we had a tear-up party. Living in an apartment, a bonfire is out of the question but this did the trick!
No more pencils, no more books, and no more legal size paper math tests!
Q1.) What do/did you do with your materials from classes in college or high school? I kept all the papers I wrote, because it was my writing and I needed it for portfolios, but I usually just through away tests and quizzes. And I sold my books back.
Q2.) Have you ever visited an ethnic food store? I’ve only been to a few, but I liked going to them Saturday.
Q3.) Is there anything you like that’s boxed, but you secretly think it’s sometimes better than homemade? I really do like boxed brownie mix brownies, even though I change up the flavor a bit by using Greek yogurt instead of oil and adding vanilla extract.
Q4.) Tell me about something fun you did this weekend!
