Checking in

Hey friends! I'm sorry for the long absence. I thought I would be able to post at least occasionally during the first part of bar studying, but I underestimated how all-consuming studying would be.  This will probably be my past post until August, but I wanted to check in with a few recipes and restaurants that I'm loving lately. 

Despite spending most of my waking hours studying, I've managed to find time to check out a couple new places around town.  A new favorite is Honeysuckle Tea House, where I got the beautiful smoothie bowl above. This one had banana, dates, mango, coconut milk, bee pollen, and edible flowers!

Adam and I have also become obsessed with Ponysaurus, a new brewery in Durham.  It has a great outdoor space, including this rooftop with string lights. It's a great place to watch the sunset, sip a beer, and maybe work on making notecards.... 

They have sweet and salty snacks on hand and a local food truck is usually there too.

Because most of my mental energy has gone toward studying, I haven't attempted any new recipes lately, but we're still making our favorites.  A big hit recently was my panang curry recipe served over rice noodles instead of rice. It's SOO good. Please try it.

I've also made greek chicken pitas (with grocery store rotisserie chicken) and my favorite chopped salad.

I'm so excited for later in the summer when some of the veggies from our garden are ready for harvest. So far we have lots of baby squash (aren't they the cutest??) and some green cherry tomatoes. Watering the garden everyday has been a good study break for me, and I think it's helping my sanity just a little bit.

What recipes or restaurants are you loving this summer? Any favorite squash recipes? I think we're going to have a lot. . .

Happy Summer!  


  1. Best of luck with all the studying and with the bar exam! I imagine it must be a crazy amount of time and work.

  2. Trisha, best of luck with all the studying. It sounds like you are balancing it all well with some lovely trips out and nurturing a lovely garden.

  3. I hope the bar studying is going well this summer!! We need to check out that brewery - somehow that place wasn't even on my radar! And I love the idea of serving curry over rice noodles - why have I never done that??

  4. School is the central learning place for everyone where we take in a lot of things from stray pieces and after that push ahead to the moved level. There must be the most ideal time for the preoccupations and concentrates to keep up an equality and be productive for the duration of regular daily existence.
