I love food. I seem to always be hungry even though I eat all the time. One of the things I looked forward to my first year at NC State was the idea of a dining hall. The fact that I would be able to swipe my student card and then be allowed to walk into a full all-you-can-eat buffet was something I couldn’t help but get excited about. NC State had three dining halls on campus and I can honestly say that over my four years about 90% of my meals were consumed at one of these halls. I rarely would go out to eat and I definitely didn’t cook my own meals.
When I first heard that the University of Limerick did not have a dining hall, I became nervous about my food situation. This is the real world now. I am the master of making scrambled eggs and of course peanut butter & jelly sandwiches but that was about as far as my cooking skills took me.
My skills have now sky rocketed since I’ve been over here. Not only have I become a better chef, but I have also become a bit of a cooking enthusiast. I enjoy making my own meals now and I often go online to find new recipes to try out. It is fun putting different ingredients together and cooking foods in different ways to see how they turn out. It is a nice activity for a study break and it has also saved me money from not eating all my meals at restaurants. If anyone has any recipe ideas then I am all ears!
