Happy mid-way point through January! Christmas was just yesterday, right? I guess not since with this week, winter break comes to a sad, sad close 🙁 Next week it’s back to learning things and academic accountability. What makes the second semester the worst is the cold and rough months of the winter. That’s why I’ve never understood why they called it the “spring semester”, when really, winter just started on the calendar. At least there is always the possibility of canceled classes during these months. (Snow, snow, snow!)
After all of these smoothies lately, and the fact that there is snow on the ground, I think I’ll be bringing you some warming comforting deliciousness next week! Until then, enjoy your weekend and have a browse through this week’s Friday Finisher!
Monday: Beetroot Risotto
Wednesday: How-To Cook Beans In A Rice Cooker
