The CPW Weather Machine Strikes Again by Rachel F. '12

a frivolous day in the sun and grass

The weather sobered up just in time for CPW, and we celebrated the sunny warmth with a spring picnic. It was a day made for frivolity. I procrastinated long enough to contribute mint-lime-honey-rolled strawberries and sweet potato fries, which I’ve been wanting to make since I read this MIT alum’s article about how he backward engineered McDonald’s fry-making process (the part where he explains his thoughts leading up to using vinegar to slow the breakdown of pectin in the potatoes is pretty cool).

As the afternoon waned, we sauntered off into the grass with our guitars. Meanwhile, I caught the perfect lighting and discovered that everyone I know is absurdly photogenic.

SEE YOU ON CAMPUS TOMORROW!!!
