Morning…(in Fred’s voice from Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows pt. 1, for those who know what I’m talking about…:))
It’s just another normal busy week here at Meredith…finals, projects, presentations…you know, the usual.
So this blog will be about the following: food.
I’m going to be honest. The BDH (Belk Dinning Hall) in no 5-star restaurant, nor does it taste like one. The one thing that we all look forward to (besides the always available cereal options) are the deserts. It’s like there’s someone’s grandmother baking various sweets in the kitchen. Personally, I think it’s a conspiracy to make us all fat but that’s another story…!
Every now and then, the BDH (after about a month or two, you guys will start calling it BDH too:)) surprises us angels with new options at lunch time. For example, for Valentine’s Day, there is normally a display full of cupcakes, cookies, rice krispie treats, and this year jelly beans and chocolate covered pretzels with sprinkles (I happened to get two or three bags..shhhhh!). The past couple weeks, the BDH has been coming up with all sorts of fun lunch ideas!
Sometime last week, maybe Friday, it was ‘make-your-own-smoothie’ day. OMGGGGG mine was epic. I had …strawberry, mango, and…banana I think. The best part was that I had been planning on getting a smoothie from the Beehive after going to the gym!
Last Thursday, they had sushi day for the second or third time. Oh! Not only did they have sushi, but theyalso had miso soup (it’s like a broth mixed with tofu and noodles..and….kelp..or…seaweed….I’m not really sure…but I don’t die so I just eat it:D).
This Tuesday was the Vendor Showcase, where they feature food from various companies and vendors. This week, there were little treasure chest shaped packages that contained bags of jalapeno cheddar Chex-Mix, caramel Bugles, and butterscotch oatmeal bars.
This week, the cheesy eggs were ON POINT, the banana pudding was EPIC, the chocolate pudding with oreos, whipped cream and white chocolate chips was AMAZING, and the grilled cheese was….MMMM! It’s not always great, but occasionally, there are things to look forward to at the BDH!
Here’s a picture of my sushi lunch, miso soup, and rubber duckies in my to-go box, all for Earth Day:)
