Dinner was a breeze Thursday night and lasted me for two more meals after that; this is a dish I would definitely recommend.  Low-cost and easy preparation!

Dinner? Done.

 

Struck Pinterest gold again and found an incredibly easy dinner recipe.  It was in fact so easy I threw it together during my lunch break and forgot all about it until I returned home six hours later and dinner was ready and smelling delicious!

Wanted to give you a look at what it looks like, at least for me, to have no meal plan and stick to a budget for groceries each week.   I’m trying to eat healthy (goes along great with working out, from my last blog post, http://blog.evansville.edu/blog-1/bid/396457/Freshman-Fails-4-things-I-would-tell-my-freshman-self), so with that in mind here’s what grocery shopping resulted in for me yesterday:

Embrace the Ace

 
Posing as Ace Purple

 Hey everyone- my name is Jenn Pickles and I’m one of the new student bloggers! I have just begun my senior year at the University of Evansville. I am majoring in Elementary Education and minoring in English as a New Language. I am hoping to one day teach abroad, but for now I am enjoying student teaching at a local elementary school. After moving from Toronto, ON to Evansville at a young age, I have grown up loving this city.

Traveling with the Jezreel Expedition

One of my favorite things about participating in the Jezreel Expedition is all the various opportunities I have for traveling around the surrounding area during field trips. While we spend a lot of time digging, we also get the chance to visit and tour historical sites as well as other places of interest.

After my first experience with the Jezreel Expedition in 2013, I was really excited to return. It was such a great experience to work in the field and travel throughout Israel. I was only able to return for the last two weeks of the Jezreel Expedition 2014 and it's already been a few days since I got into the country.

Favorite Kibbutz Location

 

Hilda Torres, Michael Sullivan, and Kelly Goodner describe their favorite locations on the Kibbutz. The Kibbutz Yizre'el is the location where members of the Jezreel Expedition reside during their time at the excavation. 

Nazareth Village

Field trips are an exciting aspect of our expedition in Israel. One of our weekly Wednesday field trips was to Nazareth. To me, the most exciting part of this trip was a tour of the First Century Nazareth Village. The reconstructed village actually functioned as a terraced field during Jesus' life and now continues to grow olive trees and produce olive oil, wool, and woven textiles for tourists.
