Stretching meals

I’ve spent so much money on spices without finding a go-to combination of spice so I’ve resulted to another ultimate lazy meal. You think you get a good meal out of ramen noodles? Try making it into TWO meals. What I’ve done is saving the broth and cooking up another batch of noodles (try egg […]

Current read: The Omnivore’s Dilemma

Have you ever read a book that has affected you in some way? My current read is the Omnivore’s Dilemma by Michael Pollan and I’m only about halfway through it. I am really enjoying the book because it talks about my favorite subject, food, and the agricultural industry too. There were moments in the book […]

Fave lazy meal?

I just moved to my new place out in Michigan after getting hitched in California, so it’s been a busy month! Although moving to a new place is really exciting, I don’t have any internet at home. (sad face!) I’m bunking with a buddy too and so to minimize the mess I have limited my […]

Did someone spike my cereal?

I woke up at 5 the other morning to get ready for rounds (visiting patients in the hospital). I had my morning bowl of chocolate Cheerios with soy milk, took my iron pills (I have chronic fatigue but not technically anemic by laboratory standards, I beg to differ), and went on my way as I […]

Daley has been MIA!

Free faxes?

I was looking online for a faxing service and came across faxzero.com. Has anyone tried it? I do not know if it is safe and if it works but I really needed to fax something today and didn’t want to trek any further than my doorstep to do it for one sheet. There are still […]

Crazy combos

Some days, I crave for a snack that comes in pairs like strawberry + Cool-Whip, pretzels + peanut butter, chips + salsa, and especially McDonald’s fries + ice cream cone…really! If you have not tried this sweet and salty pair, give it a try. You might be surprised at how lovely this pair can be. […]

Fresh produce sold locally?

By purchasing from this website, you are investing in your local community and reducing your carbon footprints. Now that is something to chew on. Once […]

Go Google yourself!

Well, everyone is doing it so came my turn to Google myself, Tea Tu Nguyen, and I found this.  How amazingly cool is it to find my name associated to a publication, rather than someone’s similar name on a obscene website. It’s going to be a good Friday! What do you find when you Google […]

How many ingredients in your salad?

It’s like people know I was on a diet this month. I mean, I don’t think I’ve seen more treats thrown at me more than during this time when I’m trying to cut back on sweets. And unfortunately, it’s true, I am weak! If I see it, then I must eat it. And so today, […]

A day in the life of Daley

I am sure you are all dying to know every detail of my life….so I figured I would fulfill all your hopes and dreams. Most of you probably have no idea what our schedule looks like here at school considering we rarely come out of our little nook in the Academic Center. However I am […]

Give me the steak!

There’s no other way to put it except “I LOVE STEAK!” When I’m craving for something more than just salt and pepper on my steak, my go-to seasoning is the Grill Mates Montreal Steak Seasoning. I highly recommend this if you just want to toss a piece of steak on the grill or frying pan […]
