school night meal


i've finally made a twitter account for my little blog project! it's been loads of fun so far, i look forward to who i will meet and what i will learn next :D

 it's finally the end of yet another busy week. my very first analysis exam (phew..that's all i gotta say) and a thermodynamics midterm. luckily things at school have started to come together.. what i learn in one class helps me understand the concepts in another. it makes my life easier, and it is quite cool to realize those connections! makes everything come full circle.

 since the academics have been snowballing lately, i've tried to devise shortcuts to feed myself well and keep it wholesome as much as possible. (alas, it is college and one day this week consisted of: calzone, pizza, chips, and taco bell. ONLY. hahaha, for shame.) but maybe this will redeem me?

yay, veggies
alright, it's pretty simple and quick which is why it's great. here's my approximation of the recipe:

easy asian-style noodles
  • 2 servings whole wheat thin spaghetti, boiled and drained
  • 2 tbsp sesame oil (more if needed)
  • 2 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1/2 white onion, sliced
  • 1/2 medium zucchini, sliced
  • a handful of mushrooms, sliced
  • 1-2 tbsp soy sauce
  • 2 tsp grated ginger
  • crushed red pepper
heat sesame oil over medium heat, when hot add garlic and onions. cook til fragrant, a few minutes.
turn up heat to med-high, and add zucchini and mushrooms. cook til lightly browned.
add soy sauce and ginger, stir well.
add noodles and red pepper, toss well to combine.
serve immediately.
