Quick n’easy

For this upcoming week, I’ve decided to change course with a different topic other than the local news. I’ve dedicated a small portion of my blog to food meaning that each month I will share a recipe that I believe should be used in your everyday cooking. I want you all to know right now that I am not a professional cook nor an experienced cook.  However. since  this is my first time living off-campus during my college career, I am basically forced to cook my own meals unless I want to become broke. This past summer I studied abroad and actually took a Pairing Food and Wine class which required me to cook certain Italian dishes that are sacred to the country. This is basically the most experience that I have had cooking in the kitchen throughout my whole life so far. For this months food blog I want to talk about a recipe made for very busy people or in my case for very busy, college students. It starts out with a very easy and quick lentil soup with chicken. The second portion of the dish is a rice bowl made with eggs and bacon. You can check out the full recipe of this quick n’ easy dish on the website listed below. This dish is healthy, quick and easy to make. All of the cooking aspects needed for a busy college student.

Hard work eventually pays off…

Whenever I hear about or see a member of the military,  I automatically have respect for him or her. Sacrificing your life for your own country is such a brave thing to do. In Muncie, Indiana Junior Howell received his purple heart medal on Wednesday, exactly 72 years after he was wounded in combat during WWII. I think that this is such an honor for this 91 year-old war veteran. 100 people watched Howell receive his purple heart and I am sure that he now believes that his hard work has finally paid off.

Is wireless always a convenience?

A few days ago embarked the launch of the fascinating iPhone 7 along with the new wireless AirPods. They are literally the same exact thing as the normal earphones that go with the previous iPhones however these new ones have no wire. Many people have been complaining about these new AirPods because they are now at a higher risk of getting lost because the wire is no longer present. I feel that having these AirPods be wireless create a higher risk of them being lost and therefore eventually needing to purchase new ones. I have a feeling that this product will not last and the wired earphones will still be popular.
