Peirce Hack: Cinnamon Apple Grilled Cheese

cinnamon-apple-butter-grilled-cheeseEven though the temperature is hovering around the 80s and Birkenstocks are still everyone’s shoe of choice, I can safely say that autumn is now upon us. While I’m a huge proponent of pumpkin spice everything and soup for every meal, my favorite fall snack is a crisp apple with, if I’m feeling a little extra festive, a sprinkle of cinnamon. The other day I wondered what would happen if I paired this with the timeless grilled cheese sandwich and not to brag, but this may be the Best Peirce Hack Yet.

What to do With Your Fall Break

oh BABY! (via nickomargolies.com)

Hello and welcome to The Thrill‘s guide to navigating a long weekend on the hill! Considering it’s our only casual break in the academic year, reading days are a big deal here.

Kenyon Krafts: Homage to Autumn

Kenyon-Autumn

Baby come back

 

We all know that fall is the prettiest time of year in Gambier, Ohio. The hard sharp leaves, the insects in unexpected places, the constant fight for survival against bloodthirsty skeleton hordes: what’s not to love? Unfortunately, it’s April right now. April, the month where the sun is acting like a total goober and shining everywhere, turning fragile folds of skin into crunchy pink husks, melting perfectly good dirt-igloos into dirt-puddles. Where am I supposed to sleep now, Sun? In a bed? Cloth chafes my tender neck pustules and irritates my ichthyosis. So in this time of need, when the icy caress of late fall is a mere fantasy, I took it upon myself to be crafty and create an homage to autumn. And you can too!
