Making the transition from home to college comes with plenty of new changes. Before the school year began, you might have heard that your next four years of school will consist of instant ramen noodles and Hot Pockets, but that’s not completely true. Living in a dorm room doesn’t necessarily mean suffering through all the instant, frozen and cafeteria food you’ve had this past semester; it’s time now to get creative.
Here are 5 awesome meals you can make right in your dorm room:
- Eggs in a Mug
They weren’t lying when they said breakfast is the most important meal of the day! Instead of waiting in line at the cafeteria for an omelet, just make it yourself!
