Sign up for Spring Market Shares!

unnamed

Eating healthy in college can be hard. There are only so many times you can pick through the salad bar in the Ratty or slurp a smoothie in Poppy’s (have we determined if this exists yet?) without wanting to just give up and grab a spicy with. Luckily, there is a solution to be found. If you missed the sign up for Brown Market Shares Program (BMSP) in 2015, there is another opportunity to join this semester.

Market Shares is an initiative that connects Brown students and faculty with weekly shares of local and sustainably-grown produce. In addition to yummy fruits and vegetables, there are also eggs, dairy, meat, and bread from producers and farmers across Rhode Island. Sample shares this spring might include sweet potatoes, butternut squash, kale, and carrots.

Pizza Nite is here!!!

That’s right, folks! The bi-annual Pizza Nite is here!

04-rihanna-pizza.w529.h352.2x*Rihanna not included*

For those of you who don’t know, Pizza Nite is a magical experience where the Rock and the Sci Li dole out *FREE* pizza for students stressing over finals. The event is sponsored by Campus Life and the University Library. If you’re running low on points, meal credits, and your monthly allowance, then this is the night for you. The crowds can pretty intense so make sure you get there on time. The pizza nights are staggered, meaning you can get DOUBLE free pizza if you’re feeling really ambitious. If pizza isn’t your thing, then don’t fret: there will also be apples, cookies, and other snacks.

Pizza Nite is happening tonight at 9:00pm in the Sci Li and tomorrow night at 9:00pm in the Rock. Come one, come all!

12 Days of Spring Weekend: #EEEEEATS Lineup

Screen Shot 2015-04-15 at 11.57.45 AM

With #FLOCKAGATE behind us, and the thrill of the official artist announcement long over, BlogDH is excited to present an equally as important lineup: Main Green #EEEEATS. This year BCA #blessed us with seven local vendors to satisfy our cravings during Friday’s and Saturday’s concerts.  Check out the rookies and old-timers below–nourish, HYDRATE and have fun!

1. Mexico – If you’re feeling spicy?

2. Taste of India – Just the thought of Indian food on a hot and sunny day makes me a bit nauseous, but to each his/her own.

3. Ben and Jerry’sfree cones!

4. Frenchy’s – Popcorn and such.

5. New England Lemonade – H2O is probably a better source of hydration, but a cup of sugary lemonade doesn’t sound horrible.

6. Duck and Bunny – Cupcakes. Beware of long lines…

7. Pizza Gourmet – I guess BCA was feeling fancy this year and opted out of Domino’s. I welcome this switch, but my stance against Domino’s is highly controversial.

Sans Meal Plan: Shakshuka

Shakshuka is a great recipe to have on hand for those sans meal plan. It’s cheap, looks impressive, and is relatively easy — especially if you have a well-stocked spice cabinet. Although it’s traditionally served for breakfast, it can certainly function as one of those eggs-for-dinner dishes. The following is a shakshuka recipe adapted from Food52’s “Eggs in Spicy Minted Tomato Sauce.”

Ingredients:

  • 2 tablespoons unsalted butter
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 medium yellow onion, diced
  • 3 to 4 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1 jalapeño pepper, seeded and minced
  • One 28-ounce can crushed tomatoes (I used 1.5 boxes of crushed San Marzano tomatoes)
  • Sriracha or other hot sauce to taste (I used Sriracha and a dallop of Sir Kensington’s ketchup)
  • 1 bay leaf
  • 1 tablespoon chopped fresh mint
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • 3-4 large eggs

STEPS

In a deep-sided skillet or frying pan, heat the butter and olive oil. When the butter melts, add your diced onions. Sauté for about 5 minutes at medium heat. Add your garlic and jalapeño, and sauté for about 1 more minute.

PSA: New Rivers has one-dollar oysters on Tuesdays

new-rivers

If you’ve ever ventured down College Hill in search of a delicious meal (definitely possibly with parents in tow, considering the pricing), then you might have found yourself at New Rivers, a cozy American Bistro on Steeple Street. My own parents came this weekend and the three of us enjoyed a delicious meal at the coziest table I’ve ever seen. It was during this meal that I discovered that New Rivers serves oysters for one dollar on Tuesday nights ($1!!!).

For all you oyster lovers out there, head to New Rivers tonight for their weekly Dollar Oyster Night. Tonight’s oysters are Warehams and Beausoleils. And it’s New England, so it’s guaranteed to be great.

If you can’t make it tonight, don’t sweat it! New Rivers has been doing Dollar Oyster Night since 2011 and they show no signs of stopping. Treat yourself Tuesday!

New Rivers is located at 9 Steeple Street and open from 5-10 p.m. Reservations can be made at (401) 751-0350.
