Made this for dinner! YUMMMM
oh my god, i don’t blog food often but get in my bellay
What I’m up to today:
I’m at a conference called Food of Thought. It’s all about how what we eat affects almost everything in our life. It’s very interesting! I’m still on tumblr because there’s free wifi but if you have any questions about food and eating right, hit me up and I’ll try to provide answers.
Have a wonderful day!
Also they’re talking about the connection between the brain and the gut and I can’t help but think about Gibbs!
Megan’s adventures with cooking…
So most of you know by now, I’m not the biggest cook in the world, not because I’m not good at it, but mostly because I just don’t like waiting for food. I like instant gratification.
And then the cleaning?! UGHHHHH KILL ME NOW
But, the one thing I’m actually good at doing and enjoy doing is grilling. I can grill anything. I’ve grilled pizza before, it was delicious. So when I moved my apartment and found out they don’t allow grills…
But I coped. I have basically lived off left overs my parents have been kind enough to send home with me after long vacations, things you can cook in the microwave, and salads for most of the 8 months I’ve lived here…with the exception of an occasional experiment.
So I was sitting here angry at the world because it’s absolutely perfect grilling weather
I yanked my grill outta storage and grilled up some chicken.
