|the market is open and busy even in the rain|
Last week, I tried a pear and vanilla crepe from one of the stands. It was magnificent - warm and sweet and deliciously spiced. Unfortunately, the crepe stand is taking two weeks off from the market, so today I tried a curried lentil samosa from another stand. I'm sure you won't be surprised when I say that it too was wonderful!
I also bought some apples and pears at the market, and my flatmate Sophie and I are going to do some baking with them later today. It is quite an adjustment going from a full-service dining hall at home to having to cook every meal for myself here. Since that's still a novelty to me, I do not much mind cooking, and hopefully it'll stay that way through the semester. It is fun to cook with others and look up recipes online. And though I'm not a great cook, I do love to bake. I've already made a batch of chocolate chip cookies, and they were quite a hit in my apartment complex! I've also tried some delicious restaurants around town, which I'll have to fill you in on later!
