Last month, I solicited the help of friends on Facebook in order to compile a list of campus "secrets" for use on a bulletin board on my hall. You know, things like "Carmichael has a hidden stash of popsicles across from the pizza station," or "You can ride the elevator from the bottom of Downling Hall to the top of the hill, even after the building is closed." But the real value of having lived on this campus for so many years comes from learning the ins and outs of our dining halls. In a rush during Stir-Fry night at Carm? Microwave your own "stir-fry" with the help of the sauces they keep over there. Not gonna wait in line for a Dewick Sundae Sunday? Fill a bowl with whipped cream, add fruit from the salad bar, and go crazy at the toppings station. But here's the gem of dining hall cooking: the chocolate peanut butter cookie sandwich melt.
|Oh yes. This.|
Step 1: Procure two chocolate chocolate-chip cookies. They should be soft.
Step 2: Spread peanut butter between them. Smush into sandwich.
Step 3: Take to the microwave. Heat for 30 seconds.
Step 4: Add ice cream, if desired.
Step 5: Eat with a spoon. Because nothing on that plate will hold together.
That's right. I see you increasing your meal plan. Tufts Dining: I accept JumboCash as a thank-you.
