Frugal Eats

As college students, it is often more convenient for us to grab a bite to eat from a restaurant rather than cooking a meal for yourself. There are many benefits from dining in which include portion control and saving money. While most of us are generally pressed for time, cooking may not seem like the best use of your time, when you have midterms to study for, research papers to write, facebooking to do, etc. There are plenty of recipes you can try that are both less time consuming and allow you to do other things while you wait for your food to cook. This recipe for Italian Baked Chicken and Pastina can be found on the Food Network website at
It only takes 40 minutes to make with 3/4 of the time is spent in the oven. When I made this recipe during the week, it took approximately 15 minutes to prep everything, it took a little longer for me to chop the vegetables. While I was waiting for the pasta to bake in the oven, I studied a couple chapters for one of my finals.

One of the concepts from the video "Hip Hop Immortals We Got Your Kids" was "be the boss". If you want to have more control of the things in your life, take the initiative to make it happen. What better way to take control of one aspect of your life than by creating everything that you take into your body.
