The Kitchen

We spend no time in the kitchen; can’t you tell? When food is around, we lose all sense of joy. Chocolate makes us cry. You see? All misery. We allow a chuckle and a smirk every once and a while, but no smiles or laughing, especially in the kitchen.

Christmas Time in Basel and Lugano

Please, please, please don’t hate me for not writing all the time. This is a terribly long amount of time that I haven’t written, and I’m sorry. While I was in Paris–which I promise I will write about soon–I tried to update everything, but the internet was absolutely terrible. Christmas time, if you want to…

Thanksgiving Day Meal

Because of the meal last night, we made it simple tonight. I finally got fresh ginger and cardamom! I made chai lattes! Recipe: 3 coins of smashed ginger 8 black tea bags 1 tsp orange zest 1 cinnamon stick (broken) pinch of anise seeds (or one star) 1Tbs honey 1 Tbs vanilla extract 1/2 tsp…

Happy Thanksgiving!

Last night, Wednesday, the school had a Thanksgiving dinner. We were surprised by the elegance of the whole evening. Christmas lights were strung on the railings; tables were covered in table clothes; candles were lit in red glass holders; Prosecco was served in flutes. Another surprise came when we were seated. My good group of…

A Surprising Evening

    I was lying on the floor doing homework when I heard a knock at the window. Thinking that it was Jodi and Liz coming back from the play and, forgetting their keys, needing me to let them into the building. I got up, opened the curtain, and surprise! Makoto and Julia were there!…

Ferry Ride to Gandria

We know how to take advantage of free trips. The day after the wine festival, we hopped on a ferry and went across the lake to the quiet village of Gandria. We stopped a few times to pick up more passengers, but that didn’t detract from the enjoyment. Our friends Katie and Savannah were in…

Crêpes for all

Tonight was a night for crêpes. I actually took pictures. For dinner: tomato, spinach, onion, garlic, parmesan crêpes, accompanied with a glass of wine… …or a glass of apple juice, or, perhaps, a bottle of Pepsi. Here comes the fun part. Grab the nutella, peanut butter, and slice up the banana. Add sugar and nutmeg to the crêpe…

♫ Food, Glorious Food…

This is what happens when I have a kitchen. I never got a picture of the crêpes because, frankly, they were eaten as quickly as they were made. Judging by this, you can imagine how they were.  One night, they were dessert crêpes, the other night, dinner crêpes (and the rest of the batter became dessert ones!) This…

What a Day!

It may not seem like a lot happened today, but boy am I exhausted. We had classes in the morning (mine, lasting until 14:15). We had our class picture (the real one-with more than 20 people) We watched the faculty (including RA’s) vs. student futbol match. We went to the grotto for dinner with a…
