This semester my roommates and I have decided to make meals together, and to plan them out ahead of time. One of our favorites has been inside out pot pie! It was so simple to make, just brown one or two pieces of chicken, add a can of cream of chicken and some frozen vegetables of your choice. Cook some biscuits in the oven and call it a meal! It was super tasty.
Some of our other favorites:
Chicken Salad Sandwiches: Canned Chicken, Mayo and/or Poppyseed Dressing, cut grapes and/or apples, served on croissants.
Upside down Enchiladas: Browned chicken, ripped tortillas, enchilada sauce, and cheese.

I buy these potatoes at the store. I assumed they were the talk of Idaho potatoes... they seemed small, but I was okay with that.


So my roommate Ellen and I wanted to compare the sizes of our store bought potatoes, and her homegrown potato. It kind of resembles pac man....
Idaho! Idontknow.

Then we made french fries, all that from one REAL Idaho potato.

My attempt to catch the Lunar Eclipse last night....

It looks much worse in person... but this is one of the joys, and pains of dancing...

So this is just one reason why I love my camera! I took seven pictures and was able to "stitch" them together to make a panoramic picture! There is one of the view from my front porch, and one of my living room. So fun!

In just a week I will be on my way to this amazing location to compete at the UC San Diego Dance by the Shores Competition! Last year in April I competed in a similar competition, at Stanford University, that comp was called the Cardinal Classic.

So next week I will visit Las Vegas, Los Angeles, hopefully Santa Barbara where I did my internship, and San Diego! The warm weather will be a nice break from this bleak white wasteland. It has actually been nicer here, the snow has mostly melted away from the roads and sidewalks, but there is still ice lurking about.
I am hoping that while we are in San Diego we will get a chance to go to the San Diego Temple!

After a series of {un}fortunate events, my old camera went kaput... so I just had to buy a new one! I bought this beauty... I named him Dylan. He is amazing.

Lately, I have been on a huge pickle kick.

It is almost as big as my mango madness... I don't know if mangos have been replaced by pickles though.
You may not be able to read the calories or serving size... but I am befuddled by this. It says one serving is a half of a pickle... and that in that half of the pickle is Zero calories.
Enter confusion: I have always been taught that 0+0= 0... so isn't one pickle zero calories? If anyone can shed some light on this amazingly confusing situation, please let me know.
