Taco Boats with Old El Paso

Old El Paso Dinner Taco Boat_Adrienne Nguyen_Invictus

I stated in the past that I wanted to expand my blog by incorporating a variety of fields from fashion and pharmacy to food and lifestyle... Well, here's my first shot at a food post! Cue the mariachi music because this post is all about Mexican food featuring Old El Paso's Dinner Kit! I'm a sucker for Mexican food or anything with a Southwestern touch.

These Taco Boats are great for busy college students or families looking for a quick and simple way to fill up.... not to mention they're reasonably priced! Not only do these Taco Boats from Old El Paso make preparation easy, the tortilla:ingredients ratio pretty much perfect.

Before receiving these tortilla boats, I played with basic round tortillas. I tend to stuff my burritos generously but it eventually leads to their predictable demise when lifted. I don't know how all of you feel about burritos that can actually fold into it's proper round shape but, I'm grief-stricken whenever I take my first bite... all the good stuff never makes it all the way to the edges. So when I tested out how durable these were, I was ecstatic! You can a sense of all the ingredients from every angle!

I popped the tortillas pictured here into the microwave and it was decent but I placed my next batch (not pictured) into the oven and OMG! The added crunch mades everything taste better! These Taco Boats leave you longing for more though I was only able to chomp down two. My mom actually made these boats and she added an Asian touch to one of them! Old El Paso definitely knows how to tickle your creative juices! Whether you're going for a classic Mexican theme with salsa, chicken and lots of cheese or fusing your own culture into it, you'll definitely have fun making these boats! I don't have an ingredients list for you guys since everything was made to taste. Hope you guys like this post!

Outpatient Pharmacy

When I began pharmacy school, I came in with the mentality that I would later pursue a career in industry. I never considered any other path but if my first year has taught me anything, it's that people change paths very often. I actually changed majors as an undergrad from Biomedical Engineering to Biological Sciences. Not much of a leap however, I took fewer Math and Chemistry classes! I digress... People often say that you should have a plan in life. To know what you're supposed to do early on but wouldn't that be boring? Besides, life is complicated.

Wonderspaces

This post has definitely been a long time coming! I visited Wonderspaces in San Diego over the summer and haven't had the chance to upload my pictures until now though I did post some on my Instagram and VSCO! If you know me, then you must know I love pop-up art installations and museums/art in general! I'm all for traveling a bit of a distance to see something unique and of course, instagrammable. From neon lights to playing with a floating ball complete with charcoal tips, my favorite exhibit had to be the virtual reality experience - it was my first time and it certainly did not disappoint. Jonathan and I both chose Transition and it was a 4D experience. When I first sat down, there was a fan pointed directly in my face, I did not understand it prior to putting on the VR gear but once the film started, it all made sense. There was a point where my boat flipped and I felt as if I was falling over - it amazes me how the brain can be easily tricked into feeling all kinds of emotions.  I hope you guys like the pictures! Until next time!
