Gettin' Creative in the Kitchen

One of my favorite things about living in a townhouse is having a kitchen! This means that I have a reduced meal plan, 40 swipes per semester to spend in Alliot or at Sloane on North Campus. So far I spent a lot of time trying to figure out what is easy, delicious, and sometimes nutritious for me to eat!

Since I am stage managing Godspell this semester, I don't have a lot of time to prepare dinners. Luckily enough I can use weekends to make meals that will last the week. Check out a few of my favorite concoctions!


Delicious Chili recipe I modified with extra veggies


Home-made meatballs, easy to  freeze!


And a Strawberry Banana Smoothie!
I love to drink my fruit!


And a GREAT DESSERT:
Melted chocolate for fondue!


What else should I make?

KKDs - Free Lunch for a Year?!

Something that is great about being in Burlington is that there are so many opportunities to experience local culture! For me, one of those places is Kountry Kart Deli. The first time I went there was my first-year here at Saint Mike's and I fell in love with the Shiner. It's a combo of egg, cheese, choice of meat, on a bulkie roll toasted, with a hash brown. Just the thought of it makes me salivating! 

Most local businesses are on Facebook and it's a great way to keep tabs on what's new and happening around Burlington. I liked KKDs on Facebook and entered a contest to win free lunch for a year. 


AND I WON! I was so stoked! 
The posting!

Cajun Chicken Caesar Wrap = YUM!

I can't wait to experience more of what the KKD menu has to offer! I've got to figure out my plan of attack to go through the menu before I graduate!

Hope you have some luck going your way,
Katelyn

KCACTF: Plays

At KCACTF, we had the opportunity to see four different plays. I was lucky enough to be able to go to three plays, all that had to load-in and set up within one day and perform that night. It was crazy to see how fast everything came together. There was some beautiful craftsmenship on the sets as well. 

The first play we saw was Painted Alice, an Alice in Wonderland story about an artist who was having trouble finding out what art she was supposed to create. She ends up falling through her canvas and has marvelous experiences to discover her passion again. It was a creative musical with a large cast.

My favorite part of this play was the Caterpillar! He had a suit coat with long tails that really helped his image. He was a great character and I wanted to hear more from him as the play went on!



The last play we saw was Dead Man's Cell Phone. I read this play in my Modern and Contemporary Theatre course two years ago and couldn't wait to see what it would look like performed. It was quite the amusing story as we followed Jean on her journey to connect with the Gottliebs, through a dead man's cell phone. 
My favorite play that I saw that week was Pentecost. This play spoke to me on an intellectual level as my senses were exposed to all things I am studying: Theatre, History, Medieval Studies, Classical Studies, and Religious Studies. I COULD NOT believe what I was watching; I was enthralled as the combination of art historians,  12 different languages, art, theatre, EVERYTHING! It was put on by a fellow Vermont college, Middlebury. Check out more about the production here!

Giotto's Lamentation, very much
the inspiration in this play

I love when art inspires more art. I hope you become inspired in some way today!

Sending thoughts of inspiration your way,
