I paid for and went to get a flu shot today at the Health & Wellness Center. Alas, they were out, and I have to wait until Nov. 5. CROSSING FINGERS, TOES, AND ALL APPENDAGES THAT I DO NOT GET THE FLU BEFORE THEN. Sicknesses are running rampant 'round here.
With this cold weather, my skin (hands, especially) are getting really, really dried out. Can y'all recommend any lotions that'll help my poor, chapped hands? Also, do you know of any face lotions that won't make my face break out?
A few friends and I are fed up to HERE with dining hall food so we're taking matters into our own hands. Our goal is to cook one new meal each week (on Saturdays) just for a break. Last Saturday's was the guacamole (see below). This weekend, we're going to try to make our own roasted red pepper hummus and pita chips, and no-bake chocolate and peanut butter cookies. Problem is, we don't have an oven--so we're looking for easy, non-oven-required yummy meals. Y'all got suggestions? (Note--we do have a stovetop and microwave.)
Oh! And we're also making homemade peach and mango salsa for our election night party. Ain't nobody sleepin' til we got a winner. Regardless of who wins, let me just say that there will be people in the streets. And no one going to class the next day.
Goodness, I love all this cooking domestication. It's all great preparation for what I want to do when I grow up--be a happy homemaker. No really, that's what I want to be. No REALLY. Stop laughing.
