Remember back in March when Mike and I went away for 2 nights to Lake Geneva? Or the weekend I like to fondly remember as the night with the noisy neighbors, or better yet, the night Mike thought we were still 21 and I could not possibly fit a 5th beer in my stomach and left full beers at the bar.

So there!
During my vegetarian, prepaid meal plan, college student days, I would do anything I could to avoid the awful salad bar and questionable orange grease coated food in my own dining hall. Most days I would eat at Subway. It was in the basement of my dorm building. It was on my meal plan. Why not? [Read more…]
