So, there’s a lot of behind the scenes action happening in Carrots ‘N’ Cake world lately. Obviously, I am working away on my book edits, but I’m also preparing for CNC 2.0! In the next couple of weeks, Carrots ‘N’ Cake is getting a complete facelift. I know Murphy is excited!
In the past 2.5 years, I’ve written nearly 2,500 posts. Crazy, right? Well, if you’ve ever tried to find an old post on CNC, it’s nearly impossible. I can’t even find my old posts sometimes! So, for the past month or so, I’ve been organizing my posts using tags and categories (check them out on the lower left-hand side of my blog). Hopefully, this will make Carrots ‘N’ Cake much easier to navigate.
Last night, I spent a good hour tagging blog posts from when I worked at Harvard, which brought back so many memories. It’s funny because I was so miserable during this time of my life, but I have such fond memories of working for the Dean and her Chief of Staff and spending time in Harvard Yard.
Anyway, since I did all of the work, I thought you guys might want to see some of my old posts. So, here’s how I spent my time while working at Harvard:
- Blogging nearly every day at the Cafe Gato Rojo
- Seeing celebrities outside my window
- Exploring cafes, bakeries, and thrift shops in Harvard Square
- Enjoying the beautiful views of Harvard Yard
- Eating in the dining hall with Crimson Catering
- Wandering around the Farmers’ Market at Harvard
- Watching Freshman run around the Yard on Housing Day
- Experiencing the craziness of Class Day
- Listening to the Harvard tours everyday at 10:00 and 2:00
- Celebrating Cookie Friday with a reader
- Chatting up Mollie Katzen
It’s official: overnight oats are my favorite breakfast ever. Well, besides cupcakes!
Overnight oats are even more delicious in a nearly-empty Barney Butter jar with pearl barley thrown into the mix. I love the chewy texture of the barley and, of course, the Barney Butter was yummy. (FYI: I cooked the barley before adding to my overnight oats.)
In the mix:
- 1/3 cup pearl barley
- 1/4 cup rolled oats
- 1/2 cup vanilla soy milk
- Barney Butter
I also enjoyed a delicious new coffee flavor this morning: Toast Coconut! Holy yum! The coffee grinds smelled amazing. I couldn’t help but stick my nose right in the bag to get a good whiff!
A slash of vanilla soy milk pretty much perfected the sweet coconut flavor. Mmm!
