“Family Dinner”

In the beginning of the school year, myself and five friends decided every Tuesday night we would have “Family” dinners because all of us lowered our meal plans this year. Each week one of us prepares dinner and dessert for everyone, and we rotate turns. We do this up in the Griffins Nest on the 4th floor of Medaille. So far it has been a lot of fun, and we have had some really good meals. Family dinners are just about the only time during the week all six of us can get together and hang out. It’s a good way for all of us to catch up and while whoever is making dinner the rest of us are all working on homework up in the kitchen with them.

I am really glad we decided to have home made dinners once a week because it is a good way to try each other’s favorite foods and mix up our meals.

Tonight, my suitemate is making dinner and she is making a lot of little appetizers. There are mini pizzas, toasted raviolis, meatballs, crab-ragoon, and some chips and dip as well. All of it sounds really good, but I am mostly excited for the dessert! She is making a jello cake, it’s hard to explain just how delicious it is, but I love it!

New year, new people, new dorm, new blog post. There are lots of new things happening this year. Since I am now a sophomore, I have moved over to Medaille Hall, and no offense to The Joe, but I am liking Medaille much better! Since I am in Medaille, I have access to the Griffin’s Nest. You’re probably wondering what a Griffin’s Nest is — it is the 4th floor of Medaille, and it has a kitchen, lounge and games. It is a pretty awesome place. It is open to all students, but it much more convenient going up to it now that I live in Medaille.

My friends and I have really been taking advantage of the Griffin’s Nest. Every Tuesday we gather there and we make a homemade dinner, and we call it “Family Dinner.” ‘Cause if you can’t go home for family dinner the next best thing is to enjoy a meal with your school family. It really is a nice feeling to sit down and share a meal that you made with some friends, and it also has the perks of great dessert! :) Tonight I will be enjoying Shrimp Linguni Pasta and cookies, it sounds good just typing it. So, tonight when you sit down for dinner with your family, enjoy it! Don’t take it for granted!

See you next week,

Elizabeth
