How Meal-Prepping Can Change Your Weeknight Dinner Game

Many Americans struggle to find and make meals for dinner each night. Meal-prepping can help solve this issue. Meal-prepping allows people to choose however many meals a week and gets the hard part of cooking out of the way before the times comes to actually cook the meal.

Every week, I go to the grocery store on Sunday, and I immediately come home and start my meal-prepping. I wash and cut all of the fruits and vegtables, so that they are easy to access when I need them. I also make a large batch of rice. If any of my meals for the week require tofu, I freeze each block and when the time comes to cook it, I take it out of the freezer the morning of and press it. It is usually thawed by dinner time. This process reduces the amount of water in the tofu and makes it easier and faster to cook. I’ll put together anything that I am able to cook ahead of time into meal containers and keep them in the fridge until I am ready to eat them. If there is something that I cannot cook until right before I eat, I will prep as much as I can and this helps reduce the amount of time I spend in the kitchen.

The Importance of Multilingualism

I recently had the opportunity to sit down with two BGSU students who speak multiple languages. Sophomore Japanese Education major Kaitlyn McGeorge speaks three different languages; English, Japanese, and Spanish. Freshman Studio Art major Leonardo Casale speaks two; English and German. Kaitlyn and Leon share their thoughts on the importance of multilingualism in the audio file below.

Faces of BG-Kat Boisvert

I recently had the opportunity to talk with Kat Boisvert, a young freshman who stands out from the crowd when you see her walking around campus with her long, pink pigtails that go to her ankles and out-of-the-box fashion choices. What is the reason for her unique, yet somewhat strange, choice of clothing and accessories?

She’s a cosplayer, a person who dresses up like a character from a specific show, book, movie, or anime.
