Most of my thoughts last week were dominated by my NSF GRFP (that’s National Science Foundation Graduate Research Fellowship Program, for the non-scientists) application. Still are, actually, since it’s due this Thursday. I still managed to do other things besides that and research (and demonstrating, which continues to be a learning experience…it sometimes feels like […]Read more "Work, work, play (and work)"
No long preamble today, just a few things: 1) This made WAY more that I thought it was going to, so use a really big skillet. I actually had to split it into two batches because the pan I was using was too small. Between this, leftovers from last week, and the significant amount of […]Read more "Recipe: Brown rice paella with chicken"
I’ve been putting off buying non-wheat flour since arriving in the UK because I couldn’t find a brand that was a) cheap; b) nutritious; and c) easily accessible.

See Part I for context. Pictures from Saturday’s adventures: We also went to a pretty decent student-performed-and-conducted concert at Jesus College, featuring Wagner’s “Siegfried Idyll” and selections from Sibelius’ incidental music for Pelleas et Melisandre. No pictures, though; dimly-lit chapels aren’t terribly photogenic. See Part III for photos from Sunday and Monday! (They’re even more exciting, I promise!)Read more "Words and friends, Part II"
I’ve been doing way, way too much writing in the last week, between the last two recipe posts and my NSF GRFP application, so I’ll summarize the early week in bullet points and let pictures do the rest of the talking: Had my first session as a demonstrator (first two now, actually), helping a group […]Read more "Words, words, words…and friends!
