One of my favorite things to do is cook dinner with my boyfriend. It is less expensive than going out to eat, and we can sit in sweatpants and watch The Office while eating dinner from the comfort of my own apartment. This Valentine’s Day, we decided to cook dinner together so that we could skip the busy restaurants (and because I had to study for an exam that was scheduled for the next day).
Since Valentine’s Day was also Ash Wednesday, we needed to make sure that the meal was vegetarian (my boyfriend is vegetarian so it was a win-win!). We decided to a make spinach artichoke mac and cheese. I had the idea to make it when I saw a Tasty video about it the week before.
On the sixth day of London, our small group took the tube to the South Bank area and toured Shakespeare’s Globe Theatre. It was a really cool experience because we happened to be the only tour in the theatre at the time. I had read about five Shakespeare plays in high school, and I have a better appreciation for Shakespeare after touring the replica theatre.
