Making Espresso Again

First double shot pulled after not having access to my machine for almost 3 months. 30 second pull. Some things are not easily forgotten.


Quick Pasta Meal 2

I haven’t posted in a while, so here’s another quick post about one of my favorite easy meals. You’ll need the following:

  • one or two cloves of garlic crushed or minced
  • butter (about 2 tsp)
  • one bell pepper (anything buy green)
  • 6 oz. of mushrooms or mote (they cook down a lot)
  • spaghetti or whatever past you’d like
  • shredded cheese
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • tomato sauce

While you’re cooking the mushrooms and bell pepper, you can boil water and make pasta on the side. Instruction for the mushrooms and bell pepper are as follows:

Start with melting butter in a frying pan on medium heat. Then, saute the garlic until it just starts browning. Immediately throw in the mushrooms and saute some more until they start to soften. Follow this with all of the bell pepper. Saute some more until the mushrooms are fully cooked. (Eat some of it if you can’t tell when they’re done by just looking and smelling.) Throw in the cooked pasta with the tomato sauce and cheese and mix!

If you like your bell peppers more cooked, throw those in before the mushrooms. Once they begin to soften, push them to the edges of the pan and then put in the mushrooms. Saute the mushrooms in the middle of the pan until done and then mix them all together.

I’ll be posting some more last minute food pictures and projects before I start my last year of undergraduate studies.

Thanks for looking!

Climbing Shoe Patterns

Here’s a shot of some of the shoe patterns that I worked on for about two weeks. In order to get the two most important parts of a climbing shoe correct (the toebox and the heel cup), I focused on the two halves of the shoe separately. The final patterns, the two in front, were combined to make some prototype shoes that were climbable. After that, my friend and I headed to Las Vegas to meet up with someone who made custom climbing shoes as a side job. We’ll be getting those in a couple weeks.
