August 31, 2010: Back to School: The Problem with School Food

Hello everyone!

I apologize for my lack of posting.  I just got back to school and my first day of senior year began yesterday.  I have been adjusting to the school life once again and organizing my life.  One of the main things I have been concerned about is food.

Over the summer I purchased two cookbooks: one vegetarian and the other a mixture of different types of food for those moments I don’t mind cooking chicken for my boyfriend or my roommate.

I also purchased a spice rack.  Yea, I know, I am a dork.  I nearly jumped for joy at Costco when I found it.  I just HAD to have it.  It was the perfect gift for myself but my grandpa decided he wanted to buy it for me.

I am not sure if you recall one of my posts about the amazing wraps in in Newhouse.  I raved about the amazing wraps that are made in this little cafe designed for us journalists to grab a bite to eat on the go.  I was dying to have one of these wraps yesterday so I ordered one.  The wrap was AMAZING while I was eating it.  However, the moment I stopped eating my stomach began to hurt.  I then remembered a friend who told me the school puts “stuff” (I am assuming this is code name for laxatives or a digestion stimulant) in the food.  My stomach was in agony for the rest of the day and all I wanted to do was go back and eat it and ignore the annoying stomach pain.

I think since I was so used to cooking my own food all summer, my stomach adjusted to my own delectable creations.  I think I will stick to home cooking for a little while.

Well, that’s all for now!

Peace, love and no beef!
