Ladies and gentlemen (although I'm pretty sure it's just ladies - except for maybe my dad) - I have completed my first year of grad school! I finished my takehome exam last night, and now it's just burning a hole in my backpack until I can turn it in on Monday. I can't put into words how great it feels to be done! I'm not going to pretend that I spent every minute of the last year studying or learning, but that was always at the back of my mind. So now when I watch an SVU marathon for an entire day, I really don't need to feel guilty about it! But seriously, there are so many things I want to do now. First - there are two farmers markets I want to check out. I usually go to the one downtown every Saturday, but apparently there are two others - one on Tuesdays and one on Wednesdays. I also want to go to every orchard nearby and pick all of the fresh berries! I think I need to clear out freezer space just for that.
But right now, I'm just being lazy, and watching lots of tv and bad movies. I haven't been to the grocery store in a while, in part because I am trying to save money and clean out my pantry, and also because I just haven't had a lot of time. So I was hungry, and realized I had nothing convenient to eat. I have a ton of eggs, and I thought about making a frittata. But of course, I was not in the mood to actually chop anything to put in it. So I went the easy way - I made a big pan of scrambled eggs, and added in some jarred roasted peppers (I didn't even chop them, I literally tore them up right over the pan). But it was definitely delicious.
So I just want to remind you one last time to enter the giveaway! Today is the last day!
And happy mother's day to all of you mothers!
