Don’t get me wrong, I love cooking but during finals? There’s no way. I know we haven’t been on here in a while, but real life does get busy. Here are some really simple meals that I have made during this last month of the semester. They are simple but good. They typically are around ~10 minutes to make each one.
*how i made rice* I put 1 cup of white rice into a microwave safe bowl with x2 the amount of rice, but with water, so 2 cups of water and put into the microwave for 20 minutes.
Meal 1: Kielbasa and garlic over rice
We just made this the other nice and it was delicious. It was so simple but mouthwatering. The saltiness of the kielbasa and the fried crispiness of the garlic combines together so nicely.
- Beef Kielbasa
- 2 garlic cloves
- 2 tablespoons of oil
- 1/2 teaspoon of salt
- 1/4 teaspoon of cayenne pepper
Start by cutting the kielbasa up into mouth sized bites, & mince the garlic. Add the whole list above into the ripping hot pan for about 5 minutes until the kielbasa is darkened and garlic is brown. Add onto rice and enjoy.
Meal 2: Chinese five Spiced tilapia
Pictured above is this meal. Adding kimchi into the bowl with make things colorful and even better tasting. I made this on the stove but it’s easily done in the oven, I just didn’t have time to wait to have it thaw out completely.
- 2 teaspoons of Chinese 5 spice seasoning
- salt & pepper
- 2 fillets of tilapia
- 1 teaspoon of garlic powder
- 1 Tablespoon of soy sauce
- 1 Tablespoon of Oil
You don’t want to add completely frozen fish to the pan, so thaw it out a little, because it will add an excess amount of water. Add the oil first, and then season the fish and flip over every couple of minutes until it’s cooked through. Serve over rice and enjoy!
Meal 3: Give up and get some drive through
All laughs aside, I’m serious. You could just be like me and stress-drink coffee until you’re full, but my mother probably wouldn’t approve of that. In the end, i believe college students stress more about thinking to write the paper rather than actually writing it. It’s all about setting yourself up for success. I know how ridiculous this sounds but the better you start your day off with, the better you’ll feel.
To be honest, I had a mental breakdown last night. Statistics is bringing the worst out in me. I don’t necessarily like college, but it’s something i’m so close to finishing that I can’t quit now. College students can be picky but they can also eat chili for breakfast. If not worrying about food helps you study, then do so. If it makes you feel better to cook smaller meals to feel accomplished, then these are for you. Switch out the fish for chicken if you don’t like seafood, it’s simple.
