As a senior, I have come to appreciate any customizable food experience Conn can offer me. This year, I have particularly enjoyed Jane Addams (JA) Dining’s lunches where you can make your own panini.
So, I decided to continue my dining experience blogging and tell you all the best JA hacks:
The basil pesto goes with everything. When I say everything, I mean everything. My new favorite panini combination is pesto, egg salad, and roasted red peppers.
JA’s iced coffee is the best dining hall coffee on campus. This iced coffee is much stronger than Harris’s and will keep you going for a good few hours.
JA always has avocados. So it’s a great opportunity to make avocado toast with their nice sourdough bread.
JA’s salad bar has about four different types of cheese. Take some cheese to-go or use it to make different grilled cheese sandwiches!
Oil your bread before putting it into the panini press. Trust me, your bread will not stick and you will get a crunchy sandwich. JA normally has three types of flavored oils right next to the bread baskets. My favorite is their red chili oil.
Make an extra sandwich and take it in a to-go container. On Thursdays, I never have time for dinner due to my schedule. So I usually make a turkey-cheddar sandwich and carry it around with me till I get hungry.
JA is a hidden gem on campus.
