"It’s when we’re closest to what we want most in the world that life turns to test us in the worst ways. When you’re beating, clawing, grasping, fighting harder than you have in your entire life for your goal, you know you must be close. Stoke the fire in your blood and get tough, girl, because you’re almost home."Mercy Graysen, When I Last Saw Sunrise
Boulevard of Capucines, 1883
I have those wooden bowls and I shall make a beautiful dinner party for myself and all of my friends when this semester is over UGH.

Carey Mulligan - An Education
Hey, all! I’ve started a new blog. It’s for the crazy, stressed, busy foodies like myself who have no time to cook but will effectively turn into maniacs if they eat another frozen dinner or meal at Chipotle (sorry Chipotle…you aren’t Mexican food). Being in medical school, I’ve needed to solve my problem of compromising my insane exam and homework load with my simultaneous love of cooking. I’ve figured out a culinary-to-work system with some pretty awesome recipes and I plan to write about it…all of it. Bad days, good days, who needs ‘em? Everything is made wonderful by great food and a little love. Know as you’re walking through the unknown wilderness of an insane life that you aren’t alone and we’ll help each other cook our troubles away.
There is a space where food and academic success reside, and I will meet you there.

This has been a reliable Sunday morning mix for autumn and, trust me, autumn has arrived in all of its color and wonder. Cuddle up, break out the books and flashcards, and drink in the chilly autumn season. Enjoy, my dears.
