"What's a Beefaroo ?" If you have never experienced the deliciousness that is Beefaroo you are missing out. Beefaroo is a locally owned restaurant based in Northern Illinois and it is well known to everyone in the area for their decadent cheese fries, roast beef sandwiches, and milkshakes. Although the name conveys their famous beef, Beefaroo has way more than meets the eye, here's 10 reasons why Beefaroo is the best place on earth:

1. Cheese Fries

Beefaroo is the master of cheese fries. Their fries are crispy perfection, seasoned with their famous salt mixture that people often buy by the bag. Covered in hot, melted cheddar goodness and put in a cup that is filled to the brim with cheese dripping down the sides.

2. Shakes

Beefaroo has a wide range of shake flavors to choose from. From your staple chocolate and vanilla, to blue raspberry and jamocha, Beefaroo has a shake flavor for every sweet tooth. The shakes are mixed right in front as you order and can always be counted on to be thick and rich.

3. Salads

Beefaroo also has a wide range of lighter options, one being their extensive salad menu. At Beefaroo eating healthy is just as tasty and satisfying. Each salad is freshly made with a multitude of great toppings that make eating a salad an enjoyable activity.

4. Sweet Potato Fries

If cheese fries don't trip your trigger, then waffle cut sweet potato fries are sure to do the trick. As a newer menu item, Beefaroo's sweet potato fries are a popular side choice for many costumers. Sweet and salty never tasted so good.

5. Chicken Tortilla Soup

Creamy, cheesy, spicy; just a few words to describe the goodness that is Beefaroo's chicken tortilla soup. Served with tortilla strips to add, this soup will keep you warm and full of happiness year round.

6. Freshly Made Desserts

Aside from their shakes, Beefaroo also has cookies, brownies, and a crowd favorite; scotcheroos. What makes these desserts especially amazing is that they are made fresh every day with their own personal recipes.

7. Avocado Turkey Jack

An insanely popular item (and my personal favorite) is their avocado turkey jack sandwich/wrap. Made with sliced turkey breast, avocado, chipotle mayo, cream cheese, tortilla strips, lettuce, and pepper jack cheese, you cannot go wrong with picking this when you visit Beefaroo .

8. Onion Rings

Another side option is their onion rings; the batter they are made in is mouth watering. Crispy, golden breading surrounding the onions, and seasoned with their famous salt make this side to die for.

9. Roast Beef

As you can tell by the name, Beefaroo knows how to do roast beef sandwiches. Thinly sliced roast beef, steamed to perfection and covered with your choice of cheese.

10. Guaranteed Deliciousness

No matter what you decide to get from Beefaroo , you can't go wrong. Everything they sell is made fresh and always a great eating experience.

I'm The Girl Without A 'Friend Group'

And here's why I'm OK with it

Little things remind me all the time.

For example, I'll be sitting in the lounge with the people on my floor, just talking about how everyone's days went. Someone will turn to someone else and ask something along the lines of, "When are we going to so-and-so's place tonight?" Sometimes it'll even be, "Are you ready to go to so-and-so's place now? Okay, we'll see you later, Taylor!"

It's little things like that, little things that remind me I don't have a "friend group." And it's been like that forever. I don't have the same people to keep me company 24 hours of the day, the same people to do absolutely everything with, and the same people to cling to like glue. I don't have a whole cast of characters to entertain me and care for me and support me. Sometimes, especially when it feels obvious to me, not having a "friend group" makes me feel like a waste of space. If I don't have more friends than I can count, what's the point in trying to make friends at all?

I can tell you that there is a point. As a matter of fact, just because I don't have a close-knit clique doesn't mean I don't have any friends. The friends I have come from all different walks of life, some are from my town back home and some are from across the country. I've known some of my friends for years, and others I've only known for a few months. It doesn't really matter where they come from, though. What matters is that the friends I have all entertain me, care for me, and support me. Just because I'm not in that "friend group" with all of them together doesn't mean that we can't be friends to each other.

Still, I hate avoiding sticking myself in a box, and I'm not afraid to seek out friendships. I've noticed that a lot of the people I see who consider themselves to be in a "friend group" don't really venture outside the pack very often. I've never had a pack to venture outside of, so I don't mind reaching out to new people whenever.

I'm not going to lie, when I hear people talking about all the fun they're going to have with their "friend group" over the weekend, part of me wishes I could be included in something like that. I do sometimes want to have the personality type that allows me to mesh perfectly into a clique. I couldn't tell you what it is about me, but there is some part of me that just happens to function better one-on-one with people.

I hated it all my life up until very recently, and that's because I've finally learned that not having a "friend group" is never going to be the same as not having friends.

A Love Letter To My Air Fryer

And why you would love an fryer too...

In a previous article, I wrote about how love to use Trello.com for organizing things. I'm still loving Trello. I've haven't grown bored of it and stopped using it (like I have with some other organizational systems). This time, I'm going to share another item that I love, and it's for one of my favorite things, food! I finally gave in and bought an air fryer, and after my first use, I literally said that it's wonderful! I bought a small air fryer. It only holds about two quarts, but it's perfect for quick lunches.

I thought I'd love the air fryer if it could dry fry food with little to no oil, and it does just that. I'm also in love with the air fryer, because I could simply put the food in it, set the timer and live my life for a few minutes until the food is done. I don't have to stand over it and watch the food cook. That makes the air fryer a winner! Did I mention that it really does work?! Yes, it does work. Now, you could buy foods that are already breaded and throw them in the air fryer, but if you want to go the healthier route, you can use bread crumbs, flour, and eggs to make your own crispy coatings for your foods. Dipping your food in your own homemade batter cuts out some of the salt and added chemicals in the frozen pre-fried foods.

You can also fry foods that do not even need a homemade batter. Without using the batter, I've made sweet potato French fries and burritos in it. The tortilla for the burrito turned out nicely crispy, but I didn't leave it in the air fryer long enough for it to be crunchy. The sweet potato fries came out nice. I've tried making crispy chickpeas with Italian seasoning, but they weren't to my liking. However, I have loved everything else that I've made in the air fryer. Sometimes I just put a quick meal in it, just to re-heat it, since I don't use a microwave. I just think that using the air fryer is healthier than using microwaves, and I love that I don't need to put my food in a special box or anything for it to be really crispy. If you love fried chicken or fried fish, you'd love this little machine as much as I do!
