Where the heck did this snow come from?! Come on Mother Nature, it’s APRIL. We aren’t supposed to be having snow! Sorry about that, I’m honestly feeling a little salty about all of this snow still on the ground. I was looking at my Timehop, and there were pictures of sunshine, skirts, and flowers… warm weather, where are youuu? Because of this strange cold weather, my body was craving a super warming and comforting bowl of stew, so I whipped up this variation on Minestrone soup. If I have a colder breakfast or meal for lunch, I find that I am freezing immediately following eating, does this happen to anyone else? This stew was my cure for the shivers this week.
Being a college student, I am constantly on-the-go, running from the gym to class to my internship, meals in tote in recycled take-out containers or in plastic bags. I basically always have two things on my person, my camelbak water bottle, and my lunch box. Oh and we can’t forget about the fact that, because I am a college student buying my own groceries, the budget is quite tight. Meals need to be relatively cheap and quick, which I have been much better at this semester! *Patting myself on the back*
