Hey is that a chicken gyro in your (pita) pocket or are you just happy to see me?

This meal comes to you courtesy of the subscription my mother gave me to "Real Simple" magazine for Christmas this year. I think she is simultaneously trying to A. be nice, B. encourage my neurotic tendencies and, C. keep me from having a normal social life.
So, a meal in two parts:
Part 1: Making your own tzatziki sauce (also known as "Our Mush, Ourselves).
Part 2: Making gyro style chicken.
You'll need: Tzatziki ingredients (listed below), chicken, spices, some oil, an onion, pita and feta!

Follow the leis!

Warm Weather Comfort Food

In the midst of finals currently, which is only partially to blame for my lack of posting (the other 79% is my debilitating laziness). Kate and I took advantage of the beyond beautiful weather and took a little stroll down to Whole Foods which is always very inspiring in the food department and depressing in the wallet department (and annoying in the other people shopping there department: side note, last time we were there we found out the salsa aisle is also the baby food aisle and this woman was filling an ENTIRE SHOPPING cart with baby food).
So, a dinner made up of my favorite warm weather and all weather foods:
Corn on the cob
Olive oil with stuff in it

Pretend summer cocktails

Enthusiastic response to my cooking

That time I burned myself rly badly.

Make it yourself - NACHOS, gossip gorl

One word. Nachos.
As Peggy Hill would say, this is real, authentic MEHICAN food.

Get ready....here we go!

I'm Sick

I'm sick. I can't talk. I got some free benadryl from student health but that just means I take three hour naps at 1:00pm/go to bed at 7:00pm and wake up choking on my own saliva. YUM! This is a meal I made myself. There are two parts:

Part 1: a toaster strudel, they're on sale at the Fro Gro this week if you are in the philadelphia area, 2 boxes for $4.00...

Part 2: Part 2: Part 2: I came home from school and thought I was going to pass out on the subway, I opened the fridge and in some delirium I bought a huge pack of flour tortillas and there they were. So this is what they do! This is what you do: STOVE TOAST THE TORTILLAS. Stove toast is the best way to achieve diner toast results in the comfort of your own home/in the absence of New Jersey.
1. Frying pan on the stove
2: Buttered bread (tortilla) in the pan, on both sides. Let the butter get really melty and soak in.
I swear to jesus if you stove toast some shitty grocery store flour tortillas and roll jam up in them IT'S JUST LIKE A CREPE I PROMISE.
