Once again my friends and I have used our Minerva to its fullest. We cooked a delicious meal yesterday in Beuth. Everyone is tired of the food at West, which is the undergraduate dining hall. The food choices are usually pretty limited and, unless you are willing to eat salad for every meal, pretty unhealthy. A friend drove us to pick up food on Saturday since the closest grocery store is about two miles away. I’ve gone before on foot, but it really sucks to carry all the food back. We grilled beef, boiled potatoes with an Ecuadorian cheese sauce, and salad. It’s really a great activity to do on the weekends. You get to hang out with friends and enjoy a good meal.
