Amanda Knox’s priorities upon being freed from an Italian jail were simple: to touch the grass for the first time in four years, to enjoy a Chinese food takeaway dinner.

Her first public outings have been equally low-key, and observers say she looked at ease back out in society.

Knox spent her first weekend of freedom shopping and taking a day trip with friends and family, according to Britain’s Daily Mail.

Released from an Italian prison earlier this month after her murder conviction was overturned, Knox, 24, was photographed walking with an unidentified male friend Saturday going to a local store near her home in Seattle. She was dressed casually in jeans, a T-shirt and sneakers, and carried toothpaste and a chocolate bar.

The following day, she took a ferry trip with her mother, aunt and some friends to Puget Sound.
