Hi! How are you guys? I just started another semester of school yesterday, so I’ve been busy trying to get back into the swing of things.
Two things I love about going back to school:
-Seeing the new freshmen clinging to their campus maps scurrying around to find their classes and being happy that I’m past that phase. 😉
-Seeing familiar faces I didn’t get to see over break.
And then of course, there’s the learning! I’m really stoked about my classes and all that I’m bound to learn this semester.
Something else that’s great…it’s been in the high 60’s/low 70’s for the past couple days. Blue skies, sunshiney, and perfect. I couldn’t be happier with the weather.
…Although it kind of scares me that the weather is this beautiful (not to mention warm) in the middle of January. I do not want to know what the middle of July will look like (shudder). Despite being born and raised here, no amount of time can get me used to the heat of Las Vegas summers.
I’m getting a little flushed just thinking about it.
In other news, today I randomly bought something I’ve never bought before: ground turkey.
I have no idea what I’m going to make with it. Meatballs, chili, burgers, ragu…I’ve been overwhelmed by the amount of recipes I’ve found so far. Do you guys have any ideas or recipes?
I’m thinking meatballs would go well with this:
Organic spinach pasta. Impulse buy #2.
What can I say? Sometimes, when I’m at the grocery store, products just call out my name and beg me to make something fabulous out of them. Who am I to turn them down? 😉
Another item I bought today on a whim: a frozen burrito. We’ll see how successful that purchase was.
Do you buy food on impulse or do you like to have a plan for what you’re going to make/eat?
Usually I like to plan, but there’s something fun about just grabbing things that look good and experimenting! 🙂
