I don’t even remember eating anything other than Diet Coke and Otis Spunkmeyer sugar cookies. I do remember some California girls living next door steaming up some artichokes and dipping them in melted butter. First time I’d ever tried an artichoke in my life. So good!

Thanks for expanding my culinary horizons! ;D lol Although I’m with Summer – although I live at home and have home-cooked meals 24-7 available…well, let’s just say candy gets in the way when convenience is in demand.

I just unraveled sheets of recipes from buying candy the last weeks of final exams from last semester in the bottom of my bag…yikes…need a rice cooker, !!!

I was so thin! I wish to be that skinny now.

No one I knew bothered to cook anything but tea and coffee in their room. For me, an electric kettle is a definite MUST HAVE. (Later in life I did in fact use one of these as my entire kitchen while in a foreign country, cooked lots of oatmeal, rice, lentils and hard boiled eggs!)

Glad to have helped!!! We sat down and went through our “must haves” list and we wish we’d gone off to college with all the same accoutrements : )

Although those pork buns were really, really good.

Although sometimes I see little kids eating the blues, and I can’t escape how delicious it looks…

I still live on unhealthy amounts of them… but they always say colorful foods and fish are good for us! This is my version : )

I have a daughter who will be going away to college soon and this post has provided some really practical suggestions. Thanks!

I spread them on sourdough, crackers, just out of the peel with salt. Yum.

Proud to say, in seven years of college and grad school, I never purchased one Ramen noodles package. :) I genuinely enjoy boxed macaroni, though!

Which leads me to college. Erm. I’m pretty sure I lived solely on packaged pasta (not just ramen – sometimes I was a balla’ and got lipton noodle packs or generic mac and cheese. I’ll go ahead and dust off my shoulders now), pickles, and a lot – i repeat, A LOT – of candy. Like, sour patch anything, swedish fish, hot tamales. Those were my jam!

I don’t know how I’m alive, either.
