Hello there. I am in the midst of preparing for my last three final exams. Allow me to share with you a few of my favorite study mini-meals, and how to prepare them.
Gummy vitamins: Unscrew cap. Remove one vitamin. Chew, swallow. Will remind you of a simpler time when your teachers returned your tests promptly, with stickers on them.
Otter pops: Remove from freezer. Detach favorite color (I prefer the “Sir Isaac Lime”—puts me in a scholarly frame of mind). Open with scissors. Eat quickly, before you can register the fact that they taste like….chemicals.
Frozen peas: Remove from freezer when you realize you haven’t eaten a vegetable in awhile. Do not bother to thaw. Also great for icing injuries (e.g. bumps on head from banging it against the wall or table).
I promise that soon I will go to the grocery store, take these tests, stop wearing the same holey t-shirt every single day, GRADUATE, and make a triumphant return to cooking real food. But now, I return to my ongoing Celebration of Learning. See you on the other side, friends!
