Hoe Downs And Breakfast Goals

If you’re a UF student (especially a senior) then you’re probably working on the F Book.

Documenting the traditions in the F Book will earn you graduation swag. Since I don’t want to walk across the stage with a naked robe I’m getting started now.

My first to cross off: Broward breakfast.

I ate so much gator waffle, oatmeal, bacon, eggs, and coffee coffee coffee.

I love thank you cards, I love cake more. I assume that most people feel the same. In exchange for offering up your house for a party, I’ll most likely give you a cake rather than a card.

And I might make it with pancake syrup. It tastes like a giant panCAKE.

The party was actually a hoe down.

I’m The Girl With The Pizza The Kind That’s Good To Eatzza

I usually loathe being immobile for more than an hour at a time but that’s exactly what I did straight through five made-for-TV movies.

Today was definitely one of the least productive days I’ve had in a very long time, but after a busy week I think it was much needed. A small group of five close friends and I made pizza after pizza while watching low-budget movie after low-budget movie.

Pizza #1: Breakfast Pizza  Movie #1: Life Time’s Natalee Holloway

Okay we didn’t write down or make exact recipes but here’s a rough one.

You need turkey sausage, sharp cheddar cheese, frozen hash browns, and about three eggs. After you’ve stretched out your pizza dough (or defrosted a frozen one for the lazier people) pile everything onto it in no particular order and bake at 375° for 30 minutes.

The movie was cheesy with terrible acting, it was awesome, my second favorite of the day.

Pizza #2 Berry Dessert Pizza  Movie #2: Keeping Up With The Randalls

First you need to bake the crust with butter and honey spread in a thin  layer over the top. Once it’s cooled add either cream cheese frosting or cream cheese mixed with powdered sugar on top. Then, using either fresh or frozen, add berries on top of the cream cheese.

As for the movie, it seemed like a combination of The Family Stone, The Proposal and about two other movies. Let’s just say it’s not one I’ll watch again.

Pizza #3: Cheese Pizza

Movie #3: Murder at 75 Birch

Unfortunately I had no part in making this one. I did however, have part in eating it. It was awesome.

I believe it was a six-cheese pizza with roasted garlic and alfredo sauce.

The movie was pure drama: a sister-in-law murdered, a tragic accident killing a husband, a brother-in-law cheating with two women and killing for love (and insurance money).

Pizza #4: Chocolate Dessert Pizza  Movie #4: One Angry Juror

Again just a basic pizza crust already cooked. Chocolate frosting, marshmallows and M&Ms are added one top. And that’s it.

I’m pretty sure I was either asleep or distracted during this movie, but I do remember a lot of yelling. That must mean it’s good right?

Snack #5: Cheesy Breadsticks  Movie #5: Last Man Standing

It’s a no-brainer, it’s just bread with cheese on top.

The movie was super suspenseful, but by far my favorite, mostly because Mekhi Phifer was in it.

By the way, I’m super great at making pizza crust now.

Mmm… Pancakes

It’s that time of year yet again. Exam week. Naturally my roommates are frazzled and stressed out.

All week long we have been craving pancakes; we finally gave in and had a pancake party.

Ingredients use:

pancake mix, chocolate chips, oat meal mix, syrup, peanut butter, ice cream, cocoa powder, butter, and a whole lot of love

Needless to say we all ruined our dinners. I should have listened to my mother. All my life she warned my not to eat any cookies too closely to dinner and here I am at 4:30 in the afternoon with a tall stack of pancakes.

Pancake ice cream sunday with syrup on top.

I got a little lazy toward the end of the pancake experimentations and threw a whole lot of batter into the frying pan. Poor execution of the monster pancake.


The point is pancakes are awesome, studying is not, and I feel like I’m going to vomit because I ate too much.

There’s A Mouse In My House

Breakfast is the best meal of the day. I love sitting down with a cup of coffee and watching the sunrise. Morning seem more peaceful then the rest of the day.

Experimenting with food and recipes can be rewarding at times but, it can also yield unfortunate results.

Pancakes are the best breakfast food, probably because they are so versatile. My friend Caitlin and I explored this further. Along with pancake mix at hand we set out into the baking work with apples, baby bananas, cinnamon, chocolate, and a bowl of fruit for balance.

Mickey Mouse, a classic.

All the colours of the rainbow.

Apple iMage

My apple mug, my apple iPod and apple with the Apple logo carved into it.

There has been some sickness among people in my house to ward off germs and disease, I’m trying this ‘apple a day’ thing to keep doctors away.

Breakfast Time

It rained this morning, which preventing me from going on my daily morning jog so I had a little down time and this is the result.

Since I woke up feeling hungry and lonely I gave my breakfast a face so I could have company.

I’m addicted to grapefruit.  However they are not terribly filling so I added cereal with craisins and a cup of hot tea to the morning mix.
