I’ve eaten basically no red meat since coming to the UK, and while I think it’s great to eat less meat, I realized I could probably do with an iron and protein boost. So, I got some relatively lean diced beef from Aldi and resolved to use up some of my marmalade, ginger, frozen broccoli, […]Read more "Recipe: Ginger-orange beef stir-fry"
I found that some of the measurements on the electromagnet I was working on this week took just enough time for me to read a webcomic; specifically, PHD Comics. I’d seen a few strips posted around various labs at the University of Utah, but I’ve never related to them as much as I have in […]Read more "It’s the grad school life for us"

I’m not a huge fan of really […]Read more "Recipe: Sour cream muffins"
Due to our house dinner on Sunday, I didn’t have time to cook a big pot of stuff to eat during the week. I felt like giving soups/stews a break for a week, so we’re back to roasting! Also, my tandoori spice powder (which I’m using in place of curry powder here) has mostly been […]Read more "Recipe: Curry-roasted squash and chickpeas"
