As the sisterhood chair of Delta Phi Epsilon, I plan fun events for our sisters. This past weekend I planned a potluck picnic at Kelly Drive. It seemed like the quintessential outdoor weekend activity, perfect for the end of the summer. The perfection was dampened when Mother Nature got in the way and decided to rain on our parade. The overcast skies and drizzle called for a quick change of plans and led to an impromptu potluck movie day instead! Some snuggling on the couches, pausing of the movie for quick conversations, and good food was a relaxing way to spend a cloudy Sunday.

I like Asian food and culture, including bubble tea, pineapple buns and sushi, so naturally I love Chinatown. I’m from New York, so comparatively speaking, Philly’s Chinatown is considerably smaller than New York’s and not conveniently next to a Little Italy. However, what it lacks in size, it makes up for in quality. Philadelphia Chinatown is authentic, lively and filled with amazing restaurants. Situated only a couple blocks from Reading Terminal Market and the Pennsylvania Convention Center, the location of this Chinatown is seemingly perfect.

Some people get excited when they buy new clothes. Some like new electronics, books, running shoes, etc. Don’t get me wrong; I enjoy getting all those things, but I really get excited about new kitchen supplies. That being said, I finally bought myself a slow cooker! Slow cookers are electronic pots that run at a relatively low temperature for an extended period of time. The beauty of a slow cooker is that it barely requires any work. Not to sound corny, but you can literally set it and forget it.

I spent an hour and a half in Trader Joe’s on the Sunday before Hurricane Sandy just to write this article … and to pick up some bagels.

Now that nature has reminded us what month we’re in, I’ve decided it’s about time to cook something that makes the chilly fall day a little less nippy.
