February Lab Reflection

I chose the Granola labs, Granola Fruit Parfait and Granola Bars. These labs have been my favourite ones yet, therefore that is why I chose them to write about. This was my favourite lab because we made two dishes in realistically one lab. This lab is one I will defiantly use and home and is a very good and healthy snack which I like. I fully enjoyed the lab as it was fun and was in a way suspenseful as the smells of the granola made you want to eat it quicker, then eating some of it, then having to wait another two days to taste the next part of it. Both products turned out just as planned, and I think that is because we all work really well and split up parts evenly, when sometimes we have ‘leaders’ and ‘quiet’ girls in our group. When I make both of these at home, at different times, I wouldn’t modify much, however, I would add more fruit to the Parfait and possibly small pieces of dried fruit to the Granola Bars  with some yogurt dipped, and then cooled  on the bottoms.

Here is our mies-en-place for the Granola in the Parfait.

My Digital Footprint

When I Googled myself I was impressed to see that a lot of the things I was associated with was athletic or academic related. I was very pleased as when the time comes to get a job and the employer Google my name they can see I enjoy being active and I am focused when it comes to working, in this case my schooling. This shows that I can be reliable and efficient when it comes to work that I need to get done. It would be impressive  if the job I am applying for had physical perks to it.

Now I am a person who isn’t so “Old School” as I do like using social media, wether for my personal enjoyment or schooling. So now that I have found what is out there that relates to me I can see that I like how it reflects on my name. I wouldn’t want it to change. In order for it not to become completely different I will have to maintain a good Digital FootprintI will be wise in what I post or do on the internet and social media.

If I had a younger sibling that would be coming to Riverside in the following years after me I would definitely sit down with them and tell them over and over again till they would be able to memorize that you do need to be CAREFUL and have a good mind set when ever you are online or on a social media website or app.
