College Bowl Money Pits, Studying Abroad and More

It’s a relief to be sitting down to write this post. My husband, kids and I survived our annual holiday party. I cook for days, not including spending an entire Saturday making Christmas cookies, and by the time the party rolls around my back is screaming.

Anyway, I survived the party for 65 people and the highlights included mini brie jalapeno souffles, a Stilton tart with cranberry chutney and my own version of George’s at the Cove smoke chicken, broccoli and black bean soup.

Without further ado, let’s get back to college. As usual, I am sharing the posts that I wrote for my college blog for CBSMoneyWatch last week. Hope you enjoy.
