booksandbabies asked: Is it possible to take a mug and get hot water for tea at Blanch? I've been wanting to do this, but I didn't know if it's allowed. Thanks!
A Belated Apology...and a CONTEST
This is a late “I’m Sorry” for abandoning my diary last week. Life has a way of catching up with you - that and I ate like the same thing almost everyday last week (I know, I’m a creature of habit - sue me). So I didn’t have much to report. I need more material. Here is where you come in… Tell me about your favorite meal EVER, and why it was the absolute...
lambchewtoy asked: Why is the chicken finger sub the same price as chicken and fries when it has half the chicken and no fries? O_o
Bagels: The Unsung Hero
Yes, carbs are evil.* But they are so. good. My advice? When in doubt at the Deli or Grill, order it on a bagel. The warm, toasted bread is the perfect accompaniment to fried eggs. I love a good toasted PBJ bagel. My friend loves ordering the Natural at the Deli on a bagel. I know some pretty serious Honey Monkey fans that prefer the sandwich on a bagel. Carbs are great for battling hangovers...
Keep it Casual.
For all of you who have class this morning: a blanket apology. While I am still in my pajamas reading people.com headlines, I thought I would send an encouraging message. Don’t look at it like you are going to class. Look at it like you are going to Blanchard for a Mary Lyon with spicy fries & an Adam and Eve Cranberry Raspberry juice - and you are just casually stopping by class on the...
the-secret-nerd asked: $7.24- Personal Pizza, Vitamin Water, and a piece of fruit. So proud!
we-all-drown asked: Hey - You might be happy to know that we've finally started putting codes on the coffee at the coffee bar, something I've been trying to enforce for the past two years. We dump the pots after they run past code. Fresh coffee is the best coffee!
Alex's Dream Come True
So my friend Alex SWEARS by the Turkey Cosmopoltian Special that occasionally shows up at the Grill Station, and I thought it needed attention. Alex also just wants her name on my blog. Not exactly what about this meal is particularly “cosmopolitan,” but I’ll go with it. It is a Turkey Burger with that fabulous cranberry mayo on wheat toast. Guacamole on the side is paramount...
At first, I thought the Campus Memes were stealing my thunder. Now, I find them quite inspiring. If the newspaper thinks we can live under the same roof, I am all for it. So, for this post (and this post only), it will be my pleasure to complain about Blanchard in the language of memes. Here goes… Blanchard Pizza Station, Y U no keep making personal pizzas past 9:45 when the sign says you...
Cereal Hoarders Anonymous
Snacking on a few dry cheerios is fine. I prefer regular to Honey Nut, but who really cares. Finding the last bowl of Cinnamon Toast Crunch calls for celebration. But getting 10 boxes of Trix in one Blanchard purchase is a little much. In fact, it’s excessive. I watched this whole scene play out last night, while I was eating real, hot food at approximately 10pm. I mean this girl not only...
Celebrity Sightings at the Grill
I want to be friends with the girls who write weird, funny, and at times even inappropriate names on their grill slips just to keep the chefs (and the hover-ers) guessing. You all are so cool. Special thanks to The Doctor, Voldemort, and Princess for all gracing us with your presence last night at dinner. And ordering Mary Lyons. Who have you seen at the Grill that’s worth noting? Wonder...
People must be drinking that Gold Peak iced tea like it’s their job, because Blanchard has started carrying the green tea flavor, as well as the diet sweet tea. It’s a great day to be alive. xoxo, The Blanchaholic
A multitude of high fives go to Morgan Rosenberg ‘15, who basically gave me some free publicity this week in the Mount Holyoke News. Now, I’m famous! Glad that the $7.25 tip was appreciated and hopefully this article will encourage more students to have input on this blog. I love reporting, but what’s more: I love you all for reading. So if there is anything you want to...
Are any of you guys, excuse me, intelligent women, on Twitter? Do you tweet? Do you follow anyone remotely fascinating? Apparently the tie for the most followers is currently between Lady Gaga and Ashton Kutcher, which makes me really judge humanity. I’ll cut to the chase. I think we need to start tweeting about Blanchard. Who’s in? We can hashtag all of our #BlanchardProblems....
