Technical difficulties

Γειά σας!

So, the internet that we get in our apartment seems to be getting less and less reliable, which makes it difficult to have time to post on my blog! But, I'm working on it.

Last week was very cold, and our water heater broke. It was quite unfortunate. But, three electricians, one washing machine repairer, numerous phone calls, and five days later, it was fixed. I was rewarded with the first hot shower for the effort I put forth in communicating with the washing machine repair guy and the final electrician (neither of which spoke any english).

I attempted a few recipes from my 1918 Textbook of Cooking (by Greer). Sadly, the majority of the recipes I wanted to make require a double boiler. Although they were apparently very available in the united states in 1918, we don't have one in our apartment and I haven't been able to find one yet. I haven't looked all that hard though, so this problem will probably be overcome once I can make it to a cookware shop. I did succeed in making some ground beef and potato croquettes though, which went over pretty well with my friends here. I also stuffed some bell peppers with mashed potatoes, ground beef, cheese, taco seasoning (yeah, I found that at the local ΑΒ grocery store!), and hot sauce. They were pretty delicious as well.

My roommates and I were planning on going to Delphi for the weekend, but apparently all the cool stuff is closed until March or April for some reason, so we'll go sometime in April probably. I'll try to get more pictures up soon.

That's all for now!
