5 Recipes to Make with Your Sorority Sisters This Week

Capture

Cooking with others is a bonding exercise, so if you want to create stronger bonds with your sorority sisters, this is a wonderful idea. But what should you make? Just start off with easy recipes that everyone will love. You and your sorority sisters will have a great time making these five easy and tasty recipes this week or weekend.

Guacamole and Chips

Who doesn’t like guacamole? It doesn’t take that long to make a fresh, healthy batch of guacamole with your sorority sisters. All you need is about five ingredients: a few avocados, an onion (preferably white), a lime, Himalayan pink salt, and a tomato if you prefer. Get the juice out of the lime, chop everything else up finely and mash everything together with a fork. Make sure you give everyone a task to complete perfectly. Pick your favorite chips for dipping and have a fun movie night with your sorority sisters.

Easy Pasta!

Pasta with tomato sauce. It is so delicious and so simple to make. You can make it from scratch with a can of crushed or diced tomatoes, garlic powder, and an Italian seasoning mix. Or you can buy a couple of jars of tomato sauce from the supermarket that has all of the best ingredients.

Add a little ground turkey or beef in the pot with olive oil first and cook it until it’s browned. Then add your sauce and seasonings. Let it all simmer for an hour or so. Boil enough pasta to feed everyone and cook it about 10 minutes until it’s al dente (done, but not too soft). While you wait, turn on some tunes so that you and your sorority sisters can dance, have some fun, and work up an appetite before dinner.

The great thing about this easy meal is that you don’t have to add meat if you are going vegetarian or vegan. Or you can make one pot with meat and one without. Enjoy!

A Big Pot of Chicken Noodle Soup

On a cold fall or winter night, there is nothing like a bowl of hot chicken noodle soup. Make it from scratch with your sorority sisters.

First chop up a few chicken breasts and let the chicken fry in olive oil in a large pot. Pour in water and low sodium vegetable broth, which only costs about $2-$3 per box. Add salt, pepper, garlic, turmeric (if you have it) and let it simmer on medium heat for about an hour. After that, add some egg noodles which you can find at the supermarket for about $2 as well. Organic rice noodles are also great.

The pot of chicken noodle soup will be ready after about 10 more minutes. Serve it up in bowls and sit together in your living room or dorm bedroom. Wrap yourself up with your favorite sorority blankets or a warm Greek hoodie sweatshirt and have a nice chat with your sisters.

Quick Breakfast: Eggs and Bacon

You don’t always have to pull out a frying pan to make eggs and bacon for breakfast. If you have an air fryer at your sorority house which only costs about $50, you can just put the bacon in there to cook.

So, wake up early with your sorority sisters and start making a quick air fryer and microwave breakfast for everyone.

Cut the bacon in half and put it in the air fryer for about 10-15 minutes on 350 (watch it closely). Meanwhile, crack a few eggs into a microwave safe bowl, mix it up with some salt and pepper, cover with a napkin and put it in the microwave for about 1-2 minutes. Easy and quick breakfast before you head to class.

The Love Pizza

A sorority is about bonding, making compromises, and getting along. One way that you can increase your bond is to create a love pizza.

You can buy pizza dough at your local supermarket for about $2. You can also buy good dough from your local pizza restaurant. Grab some flour and the dough and start forming it into a heart shape with your fists and hands. Use a roller pin to flatten it. Add tomato sauce, cheese, and preheat your oven on about 350.

An important part of making a love pizza is ensuring that everyone’s desires and needs are met in the pie. So, make sure that everyone has their specific toppings in various places on the pizza pie.

Aren’t you excited to try these five recipes with your sorority sisters this week? You can make this a regular thing, and everyone will enjoy the time you’ll be spending together. So time to make a quick trip to your local grocery store and get to work!

We Can Do More!

Our business was nearly destroyed by the Covid-19 shutdowns.  Colleges were closed and the last thing on peoples minds was ordering Fraternity & Sorority merchandise.  We had to let many from of our team go and barely hung on not knowing what tomorrow would bring.  Three months later, we still are taking things week by week, but something amazing happened in May.  Business started to return.  Business we have always been thankful for, but this time we were so much more aware where it was coming from.  Yes, all groups were ordering, but it was the Divine 9 that helped keep us working.  Their lifelong loyalty and dedication to their organizations and to the Greek system made me even more thankful every day.

I’ve always thought of myself as inclusive and a lover of most people (except those that are unkind), but that is not enough.  We support and buy from Black businesses, we give back to the organizations and I feel we offer incredible customer service, but we can do more.

So today, we will begin by donating to the: https://uncf.org/ways-to-donate, we have spoken to our customer service team to be even more accommodating and understanding to our customers needs.  We do not know the struggles they are facing and we need to be a source of positivity in their lives.  I also will seek out more black businesses to support and buy from, so we can partner together.  I know this is not enough, but it is more that we did yesterday and I hope with each day, we can do more and more to be a part of the solution.

Stay Safe.
