Mug Cakes & School Lunch
When meal ingredients are sold in bulk, because you can usually store most things in your freezer for a while, or make a bunch of food all at once and box it up for lunches/dinners throughout the week.
But what about when you want a dessert? Buying a whole tub of ice cream can be dangerous… I usually end up eating it all in about 2 days. You don’t really want to buy a whole package of cookies or an entire cake if it’s just you eating it – those things don’t keep for very long.
Well, if you have a microwave, a mug, and a few basic baking staples in your cupboard, you can make a mug cake! It’s a perfect solution when you want something sweet but you don’t want to take on a big baking task or pay extra at a restaurant. Check out the link below for a link to some of my favorites.
Okay, so there’s a lot of “if you were a ’90s kid” or “if you grew up in the ’00s” stuff floating around. Articles, listicles, memes – it’s everywhere. Aaaand I’m going to throw some more at you!
With the plethora of fancy dining halls in universities across the country, do you ever stop and think about the school cafeterias we had as kids?
Depending on where (or even when) you grew up, your cafeteria had #thebest food or #actuallytheworst food. Honestly though, the nostalgia is real either way. Lunchables were basically the currency of the lunch room at my school. I would pretty much trade anything for those. Also those little cakes and Cosmic Brownies. Yummmmmmmmmmm.
Did you have a favorite childhood lunch food? Tell us what it was! It’s a little crazy how similar elementary lunch food is across the country… Check it out below:
Today I learned…
- …that President Ulysses S. Grant was arrested while in office. He was charged, booked, and released for speeding (on a horse) and had to pay a fine.
- …that at the 1936 Olympic games, competitors from Liechtenstein were shocked to discover their flag was the exact same as Haiti’s. Liechtenstein added a crown to their flag a year later.
- …that Harrison Ford accidentally auditioned for Han Solo by stepping in to fill an empty script reading spot and being Lucas favorite reader for the role.
- …that AT&T was originally the Bell Telephone Company, started by Alexander Graham Bell, the inventor of the telephone.
How a Bachelor of Fine Arts Differs from a Bachelor of Arts
If you tend to lean toward the creative end of the spectrum and love designing, you may have considered a Bachelor of Arts (BA). While this can be a good choice, a Bachelor of Fine Arts (BFA) may be a better fit for you. Many students are surprised to find that there is a difference between the two, but understanding the unique aspects of the Fine Arts degree can help you determine if it would be a good fit.
