Meep meep. I’m super behind on posts. We’ve already hit the end of 6th week, and here I am going back to third week.

Our next event wasn’t until Tuesday night, with the Aims of Education Reception. Every year, the first years attend the Aims of Education speech during O-Week. Since we’re the oldest dorm on campus, it’s tradition for the speaker to come back to our dorm and lead a discussion. For this event the RMAs always serve the super popular lemon squares!

To kick off this blog, I made blueberry pie bars. These were for a Fourth of July barbeque, so I wanted to go with a dessert that had some form of red, white, or blue. Blueberries are in season and fairly inexpensive, so going blue wasn’t a hard decision.
