Sorry about the lack of updates! I've been pretty busy the last two weeks. On Tuesday I got back from a weekend trip to Door County. We drove there on Saturday and camped three nights in Egg Harbor. For the most part, the weather was great. We visited Newport State Park and Peninsula State Park as well as a winery and brewery. We also played mini golf and ate at a great restaurant called Fred and Fuzzy's that was right on the waterfront in Sister Bay. The food was really good and because the restaurant was away from the main road, it was very cozy and almost felt like you were at somebody's lakehouse or something. The tables were set up on the lawn and there were kids playing in the lake in front of us. I definitely recommend it to anyone who might visit Door County.

On Wednesday I had a meeting with my grad school adviser and it looks like I'm going to start the master's in the spring after taking one semester of classes in the fall as an undergraduate. This way I can take more credits and won't have to pay graduate tuition for undergraduate-level classes. I'm very excited about all of it because the classes look really interesting and my adviser seems really great.

I made an apocalypse-esque meal today. I have a large supply of dried beans in my cupboard - not because I'm expecting the end of the world, but because I buy them and forget to use them - so today I cooked a brown rice blend in vegetable stock and mixed it with some lentils. Then I added a little salt and pepper and voila! It was surprisingly flavorful because of the veggie stock and the different types of rice - especially the wild rice. I had an egyptian dish called Koshary at the festival of nations that was also made with rice and lentils. In addition, it had chickpeas, onions and a chili tomato sauce on top. It was really good and I think I'm going to try it with my leftovers.
