Proctor Creation #1

Although I do not have a kitchen with proper cooking equipment available to me, I do have one thing: Proctor Dining Hall. Proctor is complete with salad bar, sandwich bar, and panini machine. As breakfast for dinner in Ross Dining Hall drove us to Proctor earlier this evening, I now have the opportunity to discuss a little creative college eating.

Advice for Proctor Creations:

Take your meat product from the hot bar and cut it up

Use a salad dressing rather than mayo – it adds a lot of flavor

Just because it’s in the salad bar doesn’t mean it only has to go in salad.

Which is all perfect to discuss this creation:

Balsamic London Broil Wrap

Grab a piece of lavash bread (rectangular flat bread) and head over to the salad bar.

Add to it: mixed greens, a little tiny bit of mozarella, artichoke hearts, and the cherry tomatoes (cut in half).

Then go back over to the hot things and add some tasty, lean pieces of london broil

Drizzle [maple] balsamic vinaigrette over it. Fold together as best you can (that means tuck the sides in! this is a juicy one).

Pop onto the panini machine and wait for a while. Turn over to make sure both sides get done.

An Introduction

Once again I enter the blogging world.

I’ve toyed with Blogs here and there. I believe I had about three livejournals, one of which I successfully updated for about a year and a half. In fact, I even learned HTML and basic CSS back then. My admittedly geeky computer days. I still enjoy and understand many geek references. I had a writing blog for…well…I only posted one story, so about a day or two. I used to keep journals. I successfully filled up one whole journal from beginning to end. That involved a 15 day Outward Bound in Costa Rica, however, which probably took up about half. I journaled for about the first semester or so of college. I bought one beautiful journal – leather with sketched horses on the front and have written probably 15 pages in it. A waste, but I think I must sacrifice the aesthetic pleasure of handwritten journals in purple ink to the convenience of my iMac.

I’ve become ADDICTED to some great food blogs. Not to mention two TV blogs. And of course there’s PostSecret and ICanHazCheesburger (I’m shameless). I spend a lot of time during the day checking these blogs when I know they have not updated. So, instead, I will try and keep my own when I am not doing chemistry or writing papers or labs or reading bioethics articles (all of these things I should be doing right now).

Anyway, it is late and I need to sleep so I can make my 8 am class tomorrow.

Hopefully I will dream up something interesting to talk about.
