All the Food

Well hey there!

Long time to no chat! I had the best of intentions of becoming a regular blogger over the summer but between graduation, trips to NYC, hanging around town and getting ready to move to California, my little corner of the internet was forgotten. I have actually been toying with the idea of rebranding/shifting towards a different focus as my interest has hanged since I started this blog. More to come later but there are going to be some changes.

Lets catch up on more important matters, delicious food. I got this idea from Imma Eat That – highlight some of the amazing meals/snacks I’ve been muchin’ on throughout the week.

Cinnamon Sugar French Toast

After 5 blissful weeks hibernating in New England (seriously – what was up with that weather?!), I am back in Blacksburg to finish up my senior year.

I’m not going to lie, I blatantly told my parents they would have to drag me kicking and screaming to the airport. For some odd reason I am not ready to be back at Tech. I feel like I had just gotten home and then was being put back on a plane. Thankfully I have a really awesome friend who met with me for Starbucks 1 hour after I got to campus. Combine that with a Macados tradition & Pitch Perfect and I am finally feeling ready to finish this year out with a bang! (Side note: how awesome is Fat Amy!?)

However, when I was home I rekindled a breakfast favorite. Well actually, it was never a favorite. I always sprung for waffles, pancakes, oatmeal and cereal before french toast. For some unexplained reason, I went on a major french toast kick and nothing could stop me.
