So the new normal better happen fast.
But the new normal is also one person at the dining commons making friends, chatting about where they are from, what classes they are taking and perhaps even engrossed in a Very Serious Discussion About Very Important Ideas.
This will happen fast too.
Practically speaking, who knew one fewer teenager would mean tons more leftovers. They last two days instead of one! I even got a bite of something before it was inhaled.
Tomatoes on garlic asiago cheese bread toast with fresh basil. Summer at its finest and no stove or oven.
Christine's Clam Chowder. We are not in New England, but we can pretend we are.
Crock Pot BBQ Pork Sliders. And freezing the leftovers, almost unheard of!
Furikake Kale Chips, a Sriracha sauce riff on Mayonnaise Chicken, and rice. How can this not be good?
Birdie in the Nest's Favorite Takeout. Amici's Milano for Birdie and Boston (oh the irony!) for me.
Aloha to all and here's to the new normal, on both coasts.
