Wow! I suck at blogging! I kvetched all semester about how I couldn’t maintain TFK because I had no free time, but I haven’t sat in a classroom in over a month and you’re still looking at pictures of muffins.
I am still doing this blog thing, I think. It’s obviously been on the back burner for a while, and will continue to be during the summer: I’m about to leave for Europe for six weeks. But I’m still going to try to post when I can, so stay tuned if you like looking at pictures of the food I eat both here and abroad.
Despite my absence from the blog, I’ve actually been relatively busy this summer. I haven’t had a summer to do whatever I want to do since middle school. In high school, I spent my summers at (nerd alert) debate camps; since college started, I’ve been working and going to school full time, all the time. These weeks of free time have been a very welcome change. Since classes ended, I’ve spent almost every day reading, playing pool, drinking, hanging out with friends, watching Community, going to movies in the park, hanging out in coffee shops, catching up with my parents, and neglecting to plan (hashtag) Europe Adventure 2012.
Once I also made a beet and citrus salad. Grapefruit is out of season now, but this would be incredible with blackberries and a blackberry vinaigrette.
Beet and Citrus Salad (serves one)
I don’t have a recipe for this. Basically, I roasted a beet (wash it, wrap it in foil, roast at 450 for 30-40 minutes, peel, slice). Then, I made a salad out of green things, walnuts, red peppers, the beet, an avocado, and grapefruit. Then, I made a vinaigrette using grapefruit juice, balsamic vinegar, and olive oil. The end.
