I’ve been home for over a week now, and all I’ve been doing is eat. Seriously… It’s partly due to the fact that it’s the holiday-season but I also simply can’t control myself when my dad’s cooking. I tend to forget how good it is when I go back to school, and then I fall right back into it when I go home. In many ways, it’s a daily test to my self-control that I fail miserably.

In fact I’ll even say that nothing comes close to a really well prepared, cooked, and seasoned steak. However, I do care about the ways in which animals are treated though, and since I don’t really know anything about this subject here in Philadelphia, I “mostly” avoid buying meat.

Fridge Friday: Chicken Banh Mi Sandwich with Pickled Vegetables
I’m sure you know the feeling. The feeling when you get home from work on a Friday night, only to find an empty fridge, with nothing to eat. It’s so frustrating. But is there really nothing to eat? Look again, because I’m sure there has to be a little something left over from a previous meal. You just need a creative way to reuse it so that you don’t find yourself eating the same dish over and over again. Let me help you with that!
