Weekend Shots [2/17/14]

17 Feb

Sometimes the snow is awesome. Sometimes the snow sucks. This weekend was one of the later two.

Unfortunately, the unexpected snow storm ruined our plans to make a quick trip to visit our cousin. However, it all ended up working out and she found a beautiful dress to walk down the aisle in. We all three have a feeling that our dad had something to do with it. He likes to do stuff like that.

We spent the majority of Saturday being lazy because lets be honest sometimes we all just need a lazy day.

Sunday we slept in, made a big bowl of oats for breakfast, sipped our coffee slowly, and started studying for an upcoming exam. Then we spent a few hours in the afternoon at work and then spent the evening with our Phi Sigma Sigma sisters. Twas’ a good weekend indeed. Here are some photos to prove just how marvelous it truly was.

Sister Chili

9 Aug

Over the course of the last few weeks Devon and I have come to the conclusion that cooking by ourselves just isn’t as much fun as cooking together.

The worse part about cooking by yourself is the fact that there’s nobody to help you wash the dishes after. Lets be honest, washing the dishes sucks. Life would really be perfect if we could all just buy robots who would clean up the kitchen after us, right?

That’s why we decided to “cook together” half way across the world style by making the same meal for dinner this week! Although it’s 95 degrees and sunny in Pennsylvania, it’s about 50 degrees in Australia which is where the dinner inspiration came from…chili!

Chili is awesome.

Chili is easy.

Chili is delicious.

[Although we do realized that we cannot actually “eat” this meal together unless one of us wants chili for breakfast]

Sister Chili (Serves 2; huge McKain sized servings)

Ingredients:
1 can of Red Kidney beans, drained and rinsed
1 can of organic corn kernels (or fresh depending on the availability)
1 tsp. of chili powder
1/2 red onion, chopped.
1 can of diced tomatoes

Directions:
1. Throw ingredients in a crock pot or low for 4-6 hours OR combine all ingredients in a sauce pan and bring to a boil, reduce heat and simmer for 10-15.
2. Serve with avocado and tortilla chips for dippin’

Devon added some summer squash to her’s because she had a bunch leftover that she did not want to go to waste. She also forgot to pick up some red kidney beans, so she subbed white ones instead!

Kayla followed the recipe posted above and topped her chili with leftover brown rice and avocado!

Although we’d much rather be eating together, this is definitely the next best thing.
