So we haven't posted in so long that we had to make our entire Blogger account Gmail friendly, since they're incorporated now. Hopefully all three of us will be able to post, but for now, I leave you with this picture of my delicious dinner of sun-dried tomato, feta, and spinach pizza :D (note: homemade dough).

Changs Changs Changs!

Hello, blog world!

The owners of this blog recently got back from an 8,000 mile cross country extravaganzaa. After consuming much chinese food, I decided that this picture of Changs, in Greenville, KS (or was it IN? or MO?) Ok, I think it was Kansas...anyway, it was probably the sketchiest Chinese food everrr.

I'm baack!

To commemorate my first post post-Italy, I think I'll have to include one of my favorite American foods: oatmeal cookie sandwiches with Cool Whip and sprinkles in the middle. =)

This is the first balanced dinner I've cooked for myself in a while, given that I was on spring break and pretty much just ate pizza. And beer. Oops. Anyway, this is tilapia that I cooked in parchment in the oven with lemons and pepper and thyme, fresh spinach wilted in a pan with chopped garlic and olive oil (maureen said when we live together she's going to buy olive oil in those huge cans, so i'm trying to learn to embrace the good fats), and a steamed artichoke. This was my first shot ever eating a whole artichoke, not just the heart. I don't know if I did it right or not, but all in all, my dinner was soooooooo good.

St. Patrick's Day in Boston

Happy St. Patrick's Day!

I cooked a traditional Irish meal for St. Patrick's Day. Of course it included Guinness (see above). This picture also features a very cute clover plant from my sister and some rye bread (to make corned beef sandwiches with).

I started cooking the corned beef in the morning. It was really raw and bloody, but I didn't take a picture of that. I was very nervous about cooking it, but it was very easy. Just boil and simmer for a couple of hours. (I cheated and used the pre-made spice packet that came with the meat.)

I cooked lots and lots of potatoes (there are some leftovers in our fridge). These are the potatoes that I added to the corned beef and boiled for awhile.

Irish food isn't very colorful. Above is the corned beef, cabbage, and potatoes simmering in a pot. Mmm .... looks delish.

Here is the finished product of potatoes and cabbage. Yum yum!
I also made roasted potatoes in case people didn't want boiled potatoes. Every meal should have some olive oil and garlic!

Also, the traditional jello shots. These are green and red...for St. Joseph's day?

I also made four loaves of soda bread, my favorite breakfast/snack food ever.

Here is the table with all of the food. So pretty!

Mmmm...corned beef. The centerpiece of our meal.
