And maybe some more recipes. ;)
Beef bulgogi over rice
-3 tbsp sesame seeds, toasted on stove, cooled, and processed with a spice grinder
-2 heads garlic, minced
-2 tbsp light brown sugar
-1 tbsp sesame oil
-1 tsp pepper flakes
-1/2 cup soy sauce
-1 lb flank steak, sliced
-scallions, for garnish
Mix first 6 ingredients together, then marinade the steak in that for at least 30 minutes. Cook in a skillet. Serve over rice and garnish with scallions. Was easy, inexpensive, and yummy!

GOOD LUCK ON FINALS TO EVERYONE!
Firstly, Paint is so inferior to OneNote, but idk how to get imaged from OneNote… Anyways…
Yesterday: carbohydrate metabolism
Today: citric acid cycle, electron transport/oxidative phosphorylation, beta oxidation, and ketone bodies
Tomorrow: fatty acid biosynthesis, amino acid synthesis and degradation, and nucleic acids
LET’S DO THIS.
(okay, so maybe I slept in today and am feeling a bit more energetic than expected for almost 1AM)
