I want to be more minimalist.
Alternative to having a chair in the office –all right!
Here is the recipe for the sauce:
* 2 cups packed fresh basil leaves, (2-3 bunches)
* 1/4 cup walnut pieces, toasted
* 1/4 cup grated Parmigiano-Reggiano cheese
* 3 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
* 3 tablespoons water
* 1 large clove garlic, minced
* 1/2 teaspoon salt and freshly ground pepper
And from there placed it on top of the pizza. We used feta cheese, walnuts, and tomatoes as our toppings :-).
I think I found a grad school program I’d like to get into–Masters in Bioengineering and it’s something that I’m really interested in. I mean I’m already working in the biomedical research industry and I like it enough to pursue a more advanced degree. Also lately at work I’ve been working with more machines (for research development) on top of my tissue culture and antibody work.
So I looked into the UCSD and SDSU program, they were pretty vague what classes they were looking for but I have the main thing they really want: a science degree or an engineering degree. But they also emphasis a strong background in math and physics. I got the physics part down but math, I only went as far as calculus II and that was in my freshmen year and I haven’t taken a math class since. From all my engineering friends they’ve all gone as far as differential equations (some people took some obscure named math class) so I believe I have to take Calc III, Linear Algebra, and Differential Equations.I have a friend who went into a Ph.D. in chemical engineering coming from a biochemistry undergrad degree and on top of his Ph.D. he needs to study for differential equations so I think it’s a good idea I take a differential equations class. I was also looking into classes from community college that would help me prepare into the masters program and they also suggested I take electric circuits (ugh!) and statics and computer programming but really, I think I should see the counselor to see what classes I need to take.
I was looking into community college classes because I was thinking of taking a refresher course in calc I for the summer but the bad news is that they’re not offering community college classes in the summer :-(. So I thought maybe I’ll take calc II the coming fall and review really hard for calc I.
So still mapping it out as far as time management and money goes. I was talking about it with my boss–she said I’ll be super busy but I’ll be really efficient.
A few days ago, I was reading an article called “Top 10 superfood for spring” and my goal is to try to make a dishes with any of the superftoods to get cooking muscles going (so yeah…trying to span beyond pasta, hot pockets, and quesidillas). For my first try I wanted to do artichokes–I love artichokes on my pizza and sandwiches but tonight I decided to do something simple which is steam artichokes and dip.
So basically I cut the tips of the artichoke and take out the outer leaves. Let it boil in a sauce pan of water. I added freshly lemon juice on top,olive oil, minced garlic, salt, pepper, and herbs of provence (you can use whatever herbs you want). I really should’ve taken out more outer leaves because some of them were really tough to eat or maybe I should’ve cut more of the tops on the outer leaves.
Really easy dinner and so yummy! Would definitely make this again :-). I definitely would like to try to make more things like my favorite dipping sauce chimichurri–easy to make but I’ve been craving this one lately. Haven’t had chimichurri in years! I look forward to dipping hawaiian rolls or pandesal in some chimichurri.
Much more bearable–agreed???
My favorite part in the lyrics how they mentioned eating cereal–I mean how did they know? I do like to go deep into thought over a bowl of cereal because breakfast is the most important part of the day!
Got this from Bluewater Grill in Mission Hills. Been here a couple times and I have to say, this is definitely my favorite restaurant. I showed this sashimi appetizer off to Mr. Fish and Mr. Fish gave me a picture of his lunch today when he was at his army drill.
