One unique aspect of studying abroad at LCC is that each student is responsible for purchasing and making their own food. Each month, students are given a stipend which covers the grocery bill (and if you budget right, plenty for fun experiences…travel anyone? European shoes anyone?) This is a new responsibility for many study abroads, including myself. While I was nervous about becoming my own primary cook, it has actually become one of my favorite parts of being here. Grocery shopping at Maxima (grocery store 5-minute walk from campus) is a linguistic challenge, yes, but also has been a great time for me to get of campus and spend some time alone, to think and process the newness.
Here’s my shopping list from last week:
-Skinless Boneless Chicken Breast
-Milk (I typically buy soy)
-Bread – the flat bread here is TO DIE FOR.
-and of course, a few potatoes
Thanks for reading and enjoy your day : )
