Recently, I decided to go back to school. So, this fall I decreased my work schedule, signed up for two classes at Santa Monica College, and started focusing on studying for the GRE and preparing the various essays, etc. that are required for the UCLA graduate admission application. All of this has lead to a sad decline in cooking here recently.
That’s not to say I don’t cook at all, just that I’ve been incredibly lazy about it. For example, tonight we had macaroni and cheese (the kraft gourmet kind) and some pre-cut and pre-seasoned fresh brussel sprouts (that were actually pretty tasty).
However, that’s not to say I haven’t had any food adventures at all. And hopefully, after I take the GRE this week I’ll have a bit more time again. Anyway, here is a summary:
This is some ice cream Travis and I got at the new Santa Monica food truck lot. His is cake donut flavored (it tasted exactly like a cake donut, oddly enough) and mine is a Salty Scotty – it’s a lightly salted butterscotch. If you’ve ever had a salted caramel (which is sooo good, if you haven’t), it tasted like that but in ice cream form.
I really wanted to bake cookies, but without the time, I just grabbed a thing of refrigerated cookie dough. It is clear to me now that I should’ve used a larger pan.
Had these great shrimp and chips with remoulade sauce from the Shrimp Pimp truck a few weeks ago. So good!
Saw an enormous freaking pumpkin at the LA County Fair!
And we also shared a giant turkey leg. There are pictures of me eating too, but I look sort of demonic, like I might eat the person taking the picture next or something.
