Beans & Bruschette = quick vegetarian snack

Bruschetta with Cannellini beans

So while trying to come up with more recipes and while using what I have have instead of buying more, I came up with this dish that is fast, easy to clean up and heartier than what you think.

To make a quick bruschetta:

  1. Toast your bread
  2. Take a garlic clove and rub it against your toast (it with start to shave off from/into the toast for flavor)
  3. Slice some tomatoes and add them on
  4. Sprinkle some salt, pepper, basil and parsley on the the tomatoes
  5. Throw on some parmesan cheese (if you have some)
  6. And lastly spoon some beans on you tomatoes

Traditionally, there are no beans, all ingredients are fresh and you also drizzle some olive oil on top also however I made mine a more healthier without the oil. Since I’m trying to save money, I’ve made some sacrifices like herbs but we all have something that we just won’t skimp on.



Homemade scratch paper

Being in chemistry and biology classes, I have a lot of practice tests, power point presentations for lectures notes, and lab reports that I print off in order to study. I know people would say, print double side or pull up the problem on your screen and write down the answer yet I like the aspect of shutting down my electronics to make sure I have no other distractions while studying. I do double side print when I can but I like to use the back side of my sheets for notes.
Anyhow, I’ve been doing this for years and thought I would share it others for a scrap/scratch pad because there are times you need to write something down quick.
 So get all your scrap paper that is printed on one side, no matter the color 🙂 and cut the paper in half, in fourths or just keep it at 8.5×10. Place a binder clip to to the top of your bundle and Voilà! Scratch pad.
Also with the binder clip, you can hang it anywhere, keeping your work space clean and tidy.
