03 Weekend Havok, part 1

May 23-26, 2008

It all started with a party. I hadn’t even intended to come home, but when I was informed (via e-mail), that there was going to be a party, it suddenly hit me that I really missed home and fishtanks and family and friends and I haven’t seen my sister since December. Oh, and that I needed to get signatures for a form that I need to turn in… tomorrow… so I get my financial aid. But heck, that was just the cement on top of the sugerglue. Anyways, home-ward I went, dragging my boyfriend along with me.

Eggrolls

Parties require a lot of food, so Mini and I were put in charge of eggrolls. 100 of them – 50 pork, and 50 beef. In the end, there were slightly less then that, on either end, but such piffles are not to be bothered with. There was much help from my sister, and a slight hold-up having to do with oil taking forever to heat up, but overall it was a smashing success.

Watermelon

So here’s all your really need to know about the party. It was lots of fun, a large garden, tadpoles, Resident Evil 4, tons of food, warm hugs, and watermelon.

Dishes

And this was the aftermath.

02 Dinner in a box

May 20, 2008

Here’s the latest in my portable dinner repertoire:

Appetizer

First, we have the, hmm, appetizer. It’s more of a snack really… some sliced cheddar, saltine crackers, hard boiled egg, and some apple slices. It’s not a lot, but I like the variety. It’s very, um, bright.

Main Meal

And here we have the main meal. Baked salmon (olive oil, cracked pepper) with onions, and some stir-fried broccoli with garlic, all over some nice hot rice.

01 Heroes roll dice

With the release of 4.0 nearly upon us, I just thought I’d make a quick tribute to Eberron via D&D 3.5. For those of you who don’t know what D&D is, it stands for Dungeons and Dragons, and is a tabletop role-playing game wherein players roll dice to determine stats and attack foes, who are controlled by a DM (Dungeon Master), who rolls, speaks, draws and narrates the entire adventure.

Dice and sugar

I started playing my freshman year of college, and though I’ll make no claims to being a good player, I have certainly had a lot of fun. It’s been a great chance to just hang out with a bunch of awesome friends, draw silly pictures on the white board, and eat sugar. Even when sessions got long (because even though they were always at least three hours long, sometimes it just FELT long), it was still worth it.

Firehat

With graduations riddling the ranks of my party and the coming of afore mentioned 4.0 (which sounds amazing. Played a one-shot with it, and had oodles of fun), the future of D&D in my life is uncertain. But I shall hold onto my dice, and when the time is right, I shall roll them.

For the good of all.

In my junior firefighter hat.

00 A tasty little summary

Of the past year, because all blogs must start somewhere, and I see no reason for it not to start with food.

Pizza

I’ll admit, I don’t think I would’ve come up with this pizza on my own. But I was left little choice, as this was all I had left for food, so sausage and broccoli pizza it was. And oh, how delicious it turned out to be! Pizza really is an amazing food, because you can put almost anything on it! And I love the dough packets that you can buy at the grocery store, just add water. They make pizza a quick, hot meal that any busy person can whip together!

Green tea drink

When my 40lb bag of rice ran out, Mini and I went to the Korean grocery store to buy another. It always fun to see what they have there, and that’s when I saw this drink – green tea with basil seeds. It came in a glass bottle, and was delicious, especially cold! The seeds were surrounded by a (for lack of better word) slimy sack that slid around, and the seeds themselves were a soft little crunch that made every sip fun.

Lunchboxes

Lastly is a lunch I made to bring to my boyfriend at work. The boxes are cute (I bought them in Taiwan), but don’t seal very tight, so it’s impossible to put anything especially juicy in them. Anyways, fried noodles with onion, green pepper, and sausages, with a hard-boiled egg on the side. In the other layer, baked asparagus with olive oil and lemon pepper, and some apple slices.

And so, you see! Even college students can eat good food!

Hello World

It’s a tradition that cannot be denied, I guess.

And so begins my first foray into the world of public blogging!
