Downtown Lunch

Jen’s Deli
I recently started working at Jen’s Deli. It’s a great little café in Downtown Wilmington that serves hot and cold drinks, hot and cold sandwiches, soups and salads.  This is a great place to study, eat lunch, bring your laptop to type a paper or surf the web.  Jen’s Deli is connected to Books n’ More, next to Murphy Theater.
Recently, they have been training me how to make lattes, cappuccinos and frappes. My favorite drink that I’m working on is a “dry cappuccino”.  That means that the cappuccino will be half foam, compared to the standard cappuccino which is 1/3 espresso, 1/3 steamed milk and 1/3 foam.   I haven’t quite got the foam to be consistently foamy. The bubbles come out in too many different shapes and sizes. But I hope to froth the foam correctly soon. I’d like to start making them for customers, instead of my caffeine addiction.  Other than my cappuccino endeavors, I’ve experimented a little with latte art. It would be cool to make a special design on every customer’s latte. Since I have my own espresso machine I can practice making them outside of work, but I’m still not super skilled yet. The picture to left features a few designs that I’m aspiring to make. J
On the other hand, if you aren’t into frappes, lattes and caffeine - do not fear! Jen’s Deli also offers delicious milkshakes, smoothies and Italian sodas made specially to order! From blackberry to amaretto, from orange dream to pumpkin spice – there really is something for everyone. I would be glad to make one of Jen’s signature coffees, sodas, or shakes for whoever comes to study, chat, eat lunch or browse the bookstore.

Today was such a great little break in the week! It felt like I had been
so busy, but yesterday I only had two classes, human nutrition and
racquetball. After I was all done with classes I got lunch and then took
a two hour nap! Now I'm looking into buying another camera not that I am
in full swing in my Graphic Design major. Photography is one of my true
loves and the fact they have a Graphic Design major at Wilmington was
one of the reason I came here. I have two cameras, one is a film camera
that you have to check the lighting, wind, film and then focus it by
hand before taking the picture. I also have a small digital one as well.
The camera I'm interested in now is a bigger digital with different
lenses, but that's a lot of money. I am going to need to work more and
save some additional money. I waitress on the weekends, in Cincinnati
near my home, and this weekend I will be working in the morning on
Saturday. Thankfully I won't miss the homecoming activities. Homecoming
is a big deal around here.
On campus there is always something to do. Tonight there is a women's
soccer game at 7pm. They play Waynesburg. If I finish up with a little
more of my homework, I might make an appearance at the game to cheer on
some Lady Quakers!
Keep coming back for updates from myself and my fellow student bloggers!
Homecoming is coming up this weekend along with lots of events in the
town in Wilmington.
