Recently I have been spending a lot of time in lab, and I have learned some totally awesome stuff while hanging out with the other students in lab. I fiber coupled some lasers, aligned an AOM (a cool thing that changes a beam’s frequency through scattering events with phonons), stub tuned an antenna, made a circuit board, and probably a lot of other things I have already forgotten about. It has been pretty cool.
But, today, I needed a break. I went to the market, got some good vegetables and a watermelon, and decided that dinner had to be something wonderful. When I went to the grocery last, I didn’t see any basmati rice that I felt was worth buying, so I picked up some arborio rice with the intention of making risotto. The recipe I used was heavily inspired by my favorite internet person, Mark Bittman, except that I used blended spinach and chunks of brocolli instead of pureed and sliced asparagus. The dish was exceptionally rich and savory, and I plan on happily subsisting on the left overs for the next few days.
