30 Meals I Will Leave Behind This Thanksgiving

And I couldn't be more grateful.

30 Meals I Will Leave Behind This Thanksgiving
Man Bicep

Since moving out of my parent's house and coming to college, I have come to learn a lot of different life skills.

I can now do things like clean out the bottom of a refrigerator, kill spiders on the wall, put aside enough money to buy boring things like hand soap and even cook for myself. The cooking thing is actually still a work in progress. If I have some main essentials on hand, things turn out okay, a little bizarre maybe, but edible for the most part.

And that's why I am absolutely psyched to be coming home for Thanksgiving this week. The turkey, mashed potatoes and green bean casserole will be infinitely better than what I usually eat at my apartment on a casual Wednesday night. For a brief couple of days, I will be drinking sweet tea and buttering soft biscuits for my supper instead of eating the sad excuses I call dinners. I have compiled a list of some of the meals I look forward to leaving behind temporarily for the holiday season.

1. Shrimp flavored Ramen noodles

2. Spaghetti with no meatballs

3. A bag of popcorn

4. Peanut butter on a tortilla

5. A bean and cheese burrito from Taco Casa

6. Leftover Halloween candy someone set on the table at work

7. Tortilla chips with melted sandwich cheese on top

8. A Diet Coke and mozzarella sticks

9. A cup of coffee

10. A Little Caesar's five dollar cheese

11. A can of green beans

12. A handful of almonds

13. Scrambled eggs

14. A pint of Ben & Jerry's

15. A large fry from Whataburger

16. A pudding cup my friend didn't want

17. Poptarts

18. Microwavable cups of Mac-N-Cheese

19. A failed Pinterest meal

20. Leftover Olive Garden from when my parents came to town

21. A mixture of rice, cheese and whatever is fixing to go bad

22. A fun size package of M&M's

23. A glass of White Zinfadel

24. A mini Blizzard from Dairy Queen

25. 90 second rice (that I only have the patience to cook for a minute)

26. Hamburger Helper without the hamburger

27. Smuggled tacos from the free lunch the advising department had yesterday

28. An avocado

29. A couple Mentos I found in my purse

30. A nap

The Boyfriend Recipe

The ingredients to build a relationship are a little more complicated than just a bouquet of flowers and a box of candy.


Relationships. Long distance or not, significant others are much more than just that. I would be lying if I said I did not love the sweet gestures that only a boyfriend can give. The flowers, funny phone calls, hand holding, breakfast dates, and tight hugs are special but my relationship and many others out there exist on much more than just these little gestures. It is a tricky concoction that consists of one part boyfriend and two parts best friend and would not work without one part or the other. While having a relationship may not be quite as easy as baking a batch of cookies, it has its own recipe (with a few variations for flavor) to follow for a good match.
