Snow Day!

Hey guys! Happy snow day to those of your who are in VA! Technically, I don't have a "snow day" where I got out of an exam, class, or work...but it's still a snow day  :)

At 6pm last night, I finished the 3rd semester of my master's program! Only 1 more to go! The one and only final I had was hard, as to be expected for a neuroscience course, but I think I did well. Good news is that I got an A on my paper! I feel like this is the first semester that I’ve gotten some good feedback on my writing. Between a billion thesis revisions and two 15 page research papers, I’ve definitely become a better writer. :) I’m hoping for all A’s…I don’t want to break my streak, but as some people have told me…it’s not about the grade it’s about what you’ve learned. True! But, A’s are still nice.

Last night (aka my first night of guilt-free freedom) was spent making spaghetti and baking cookies (store bought, sorry). I used up the last of the roasted garlic bread I got the other day. Here’s the recipe for the spread that I use for my homemade garlic bread!

Garlic Bread Spread
-Garlic (I use a garlic press)
-Butter
-Paprika
-Grated Parmesan Cheese

*I always guesstimate how much of each ingredient to use for this recipe. It really depends on your taste and how much you’re making. I always put enough paprika in it to turn the spread orange. Also, I put a lot of the parmesan cheese in it…enough so that there is texture, but not so much that it doesn’t spread.

We decided that cookies and a movie would be a fun way to wind down from the semester. So, we picked some up. I settled on Nestlé's Ultimate's: Chocolate Chip Lovers and he settled on Nestlé's Ultimate's: Peanut Butter Cups Chips and Chocolate Chunks:

They turned out to be huge cookies!

Guess what I decided to make for breakfast?

Pumpkin pancakes!

Last night when we were at the store, I told the bf that I needed to pick up some tea. Obviously his response was, “Do you really need more tea?” He has a point…

After attempting to explain the difference between the types of tea and why I needed a black tea, I gave up. I don’t think that there’s such a thing as too much tea Winking smile

For a late lunch, I had some soup and some of my favorite Royal Dansk cookies.

See y’all later! I’m going to finish catching up on blogs and read my first non-textbook book of the break! Woo hoo!
