I wanted to start a blog.
I called it california rollin because 1) I love California more than anywhere else on earth. 2) a "california roll" is what happens when you don't feel like stopping at a stop sign so you kind of slow down to five through it. I do this. 3) California rolls are my favorite kind of "sushi" and I really like food.
I wanted to document how a 19-year-old college student survives on a $21,000-a-year combined salary with her fiance. I am a vegetarian; he's a carnivore. I am very conscious of food miles, organic produce, and fair trade; he could care less, but he'll eat what I put in front of him. (And he'll cook whatever I buy at the farmer's market.) He's a better cook; I'm a better baker. Between the two of us, we somehow put food in our bellies, despite our lack of adequate kitchen materials and our laughable budget. So please try not to mock us too hard.
