Swat’s Cooking?: Curry…I think…

25 Jul

While it’s been a while since we’ve last posted a Swat’s Cooking update, I assure you that we have been eating. And, I feel that last night’s cooking adventure is memorable enough that it should be shared with the greater public.

A Weekend in the City

24 Jul

Long time no see. So in that long time, I made a trip to NYC to visit a high school friend. Central Park. Ramen. Froyo. Museums (without Aileen). Those are just some bullet points to what I did during my trip. Since a picture is worth a thousand words, here are some snap spots of my trip:

New York City architecture – to die for

White Peach Froyo with Strawberries, Mangos, and Mochi

A Summer of Eating (Part 1: The Vermonster)

18 Jul

It seems that this summer is the summer of goals. In addition to our bucket list, we have taken on another challenge: extreme eating. It all started a few weeks ago, right on Eddie’s birthday, when Eddie and Sera decided to eat both a KFC Double Down and a BK Bacon Sundae. I had the (unfortunate?) privilege of watching them complete this task. Since that day, we have all been on the lookout for outrageous foods, both in regards to content and quantity. 

A few weeks later, we all received an invitation to an event hosted by Sera, asking us to take on the Vermonster at a Ben & Jerry’s in University City…

Park to Park: The Fourth of July

13 Jul

Greetings from an air-conditioned room (if you haven’t already noticed, I don’t often enjoy the heat… I’m more of a winter person)!

Now that all of the post-holiday chaos has calmed down, I think it’s about time that we told you about our Fourth of July. While I can’t speak for Lauren or Eddie, who did their own exciting things for the holiday, Steven and I went on a very, very hot Philadelphia outing with some other Swatties (Sera, Awjin, Eric, and Robbie).

Swat’s Cooking?: Fried Spinach Ravioli

6 Jul

After a long day of work, a bag of uncooked spinach ravioli sat in my refrigerator. Ravioli again? Bummer. However I had a brain blast and thought, tonight would be the night that I tried to fry the ravioli.

A Nifty Garden?

29 Jun

Hello, world. Do you remember me?

I’ve been a bit quiet this week on the blog, but, boy, do I have a lot to tell you! About two weekends ago (June 15- June 17), we went on an adventure. Steven’s younger sister was visiting us at Swarthmore, and I was antsy to get off campus and explore a new place. So, on Saturday morning, after getting up late and cleaning the apartment (having your own place means that you can’t complain about the messy kitchen, because it’s your own fault), I began to research different activities in the nearby area. Naturally, I turned to Google, and, with no concrete ideas in mind, I searched “things to do in Philadelphia.”

The Summer Bucket List: Sparklers

14 Jun

1) Do Sparklers

So one night on a grocery/stuff run to Target, Aileen, Alexis, and I came across a display full of mini-fireworks and sparklers. Sparklers? Now that just screams summer. We decided to knock this one off our summer bucket list immediately. Aileen, Emily, Sam, and I gathered in the front yard of Mary Lyons (ML) and lit sparklers to our heart’s context.
