Tasty Tuesday

Welcome to Tasty Tuesday, where I share with you a new, delicious recipe!

This week’s recipe is a simple, college food, since I haven’t really had time to do any cooking.

Tortilla Roll-ups

Cream Cheese
Deli Meat (I use ham)
Cheese (shredded or not, doesn’t matter)

1. Spread a tortilla flat. Spread cream cheese on top.
2. Add bits and piece of the black olives onto the cream cheese.
3. Add ham (about three pieces) and cheese.
4. Roll-up carefully.
5. Stick toothpicks in rolled-up tortilla about an inch apart. Cut between the toothpicks
6. Voila! Tortilla roll-ups.

I'm sorry there have been no pictures lately! With food related posts I usually eat first, and then remember to take a picture later. Oops.

Miscellaneous Monday

Welcome to Miscellaneous Monday!

Today I would like to share with you a wonderfully addicting game I discovered (thanks to Facebook). In this game you basically just sneeze and watch how many people you can get the sneeze to affect. Which I think it hilarious, considering it’s cold season and I have been witnessing this first hand. It’s also great to play when you have a cold, I’m sure. =P

Funky Friday

Welcome to Funky Friday! This day is specifically set aside to share crafts!

Today’s craft: School Colors Scarf

I love crocheting this scarf. It is super simple and definitely practical. It’s a great way to practice your double crochet as well – it was my first real crochet project. The pattern is available online at lionbrand.com.

Here’s an awesome picture from the winter of 2010- I made the green/blue scarf myself with this pattern!

Sippin' Saturday

I have a slight obsession with trying new, fun drinks. So every Saturday, I’m going to review new drinks that I’ve tried that week – or share with you old favorites.

This morning I had to wake up “early” to go buy tickets for NAU’s Choral Union Holiday Dinner. And I still have a slightly sore throat from the cold I caught this week. So I figured it would be a perfect time to try a new tea from Starbucks. After conversing with the barista, I decided to try a Chai Tea Latte.
This is a warm, sweet, milky drink with the perfect balance of spices. It was cinnamon-y and nutmeg-y and it tasted like Christmas in a cup (without the peppermint perhaps). I wish it were Christmas already! Not only did I have a chai tea, but it’s getting chilly outside, I’ve already gotten sick, and we are already practicing Christmas music in handbells.

I made another great discovery earlier this week when class got out early and I asked for a recommendation from a friend. The Cinnamon Dolce Latte is the perfect balance of coffee and cinnamon. It definitely has a coffee flavor (some people don’t like this), and it is a moderately sweet drink (enough that I like it, but not as strong as say, a white mocha). The cinnamon taste just makes it a perfect fall drink.

On a side note, I finally got that reusable Starbucks cup that I've wanted forever (now I can have my coffee and be nice to the environment too!) thanks to a giftcard from my aunt and uncle and family. =)

My awesome Starbucks cup =)
