The past couple of weeks have been a little crazy in my neck of the woods. It's looked a little something like this: pack up apartment, take LSAT, move out of apartment and put everything in my parent's garage, live on the streets for a week (just kidding, more like my sister's guest bedroom), and now we're currently in the process of moving everything out of my parent's garage and into our new place. Needless to say there hasn't been a whole lot of cooking going on. I'm excited to whip something up in this new kitchen and figure out the best spot in the house for photo taking, bear with me on that one.
Yesterday I went to my first beer festival! A group of us went to the Quivey's Grove Beer Fest and it was a lot of fun despite the chilly weather. There were over 40 breweries there, mostly from the Midwest, and I got to try lots of new beers. One of my favorites was the MobCraft Cinnamon Apple, so tasty! We strung our pretzel necklaces ahead of time and also sampled the cheese curds they had for sale.
