Dinner for two, please.
(Don't worry Uncle Mike - not for a boy!)
I had dinner with a friend tonight. We used a storage tub as our table. Hey, that works, right?
And yes, that's Polish pottery. My favorite.
Although it's been almost two weeks since I moved into my apartment, me and my roommates have been working hard to get into the swing of school. We will just now be getting a couch over the weekend, and we're still hunting for a table (we have chairs from Tyler and Lara - yay!). It has been great to have more space, even in a tiny apartment, but it will feel so much better once we get all of our boxes put away, and once we have a table to sit at, and decorations on the walls.
Possibly the best part about living in an apartment down the street from Moody* has been getting to cook again. If you've been following along on Claire's Corner for a while now, you know how much I love to cook and bake. My kitchen at home became a safe haven after long days at school, and I have missed that aspect of "normal" life since being in college. I'm so glad it's back now. I feel like I can add that part of my identity back into the mix, and it's wonderful. Now I can actually cook dinner for friends, which I love!
Even though we don't have a table, and we're still moving in, I appreciated tonight because it felt like "real life" - catching up over a bowl of hot food at the end of the day. I needed that today.
Recipe for Korean Beef Bowl can be found HERE (just ignore the blog name - ah well!). It's delicious. Tyler and Lara introduced me to this recipe, and it's one of the simplest and most comforting meals. It's a staple of theirs, and I made it for the first time today. Thanks Tyler and Lara!
