Lemon Cookies & Cream Ice Cream Sandwich

For those of us who are done with finals, almost done with finals, plowing through those last four pages of that final paper, not leaving until the 21st, in need of dessert, missing the snow, missed the NDR, in need of sleep, tired of the same old vanilla soft serve in a cone - we offer this humble, three-ingredient ice cream sandwich. Happy (almost) holidays

Lemon Cookies & Cream Ice Cream Sandwich
2 lemon cookies

Fruity Chicken Caesar Salad

With finals approaching, it may be tempting to skip lunch for that review session, but listen to your stomach and brain when they cry out for nourishment. Try whipping up something quick such as this Fruity Chicken Caesar Salad, inspired by the talented chef Yanqiang Tan. Crispy bites of chicken pack the protein and energy while raisins and fresh cherry tomatoes give a vitamin-rich boost. Your brain (and maybe even your GPA) will thank you.

Fruity Chicken Caesar Salad

1 plateful of shredded romaine lettuce
5-8 cherry tomatoes
6-7 croutons
2 tablespoons raisins
2-3 pieces chicken fingers
2 tablespoons Caesar salad dressing

With a butter knife, dice the chicken fingers into 1/2 inch cubes. Toss the lettuce, tomatoes, and raisins with Caesar salad dressing and top with croutons and diced chicken.
