When I moved off-campus at the beginning of last semester, I was so excited to finally have my own kitchen. After two years of eating nothing but lukewarm carbs in the dining halls, I could bake treats and cook healthy (and varied) vegetarian meals to my heart’s content, and I promised myself that I would do just that.
A California-founded electric scooter-powered startup, Snag, is populating the sidewalks and streets of Miami University with red-bag-bearing delivery drivers. With a promise of 10-minute delivery, these drivers rush to get convenience products to students.
Given that I spent the vast majority of Valentine’s Days as a single woman, I never cared for the holiday much. It’s hard to be enthusiastic about a day where you’re constantly reminded of how lonely you are. Before I went to college, though, I did always have one part of the holiday to look forward to: the candy my mom would buy me.
The contrast between the crunchy breading and the gooey melted cheese in a good mozzarella stick is a truly unrivaled experience. Sure, they’re bad for you (especially when cheese gives you debilitating stomach cramps), but unlike most other foods, they’re worth the calories.
Despite all of the unpleasantries that my tumultuous freshman year at Miami entailed (online classes, political strife, getting hand sanitizer in my eyes when I’d go to wipe away my tears), there was one thing that always made my day just a little better: the dining hall desserts.
Pickle and Pig, which opened at 77 S. Main Street on Nov. 9, gives customers the opportunity to experience Prohibition.
I realize this is an extremely hot take, but I’m not a huge fan of Halloween. I don’t like anything scary or spooky, dressing up stresses me out and it just isn’t my vibe in general. The one thing I’ve always loved about the holiday, though, is the candy.
Mountain Dew is the love of my life.
Most of the time, your barista is probably too busy to really care what you order, but I’m a judgmental person, so here are my thoughts about Starbucks’ seasonal drinks.
Pickle and Pig, a prohibition themed restaurant, is coming to Oxford.
Microwave ramen, midnight delivery pizza and dorm room cereal often come to mind when picturing a college student’s diet. Not all students eat like this, but some say it can be difficult to maintain a healthy diet while grappling with college life.
This past week, I decided to make a grand return to the dining hall lifestyle by eating one meal at each of them. To ensure I fully experienced each dining hall, I also required myself to get at least one food item from each station.
The food editor of The Miami Student, Madeline Phaby, is a dear friend of mine. We laugh together, we cry together, we eat together. We enjoy each other’s company. But boy, do I have a bone to pick with her.
At long last, Blizzards and GrillBurgers have made their way back to Oxford.
