SOS. I need help! I'm drowning in neurons... Q: What does a med student do when she is SO OVER studying? A: Make crap in the kitchen!

I get home and try to study seizures, but end up having some sort of spastic "spell" in the kitchen. My cortex says...hmmm I want pumpkin pie but I only have pumpkin and condensed milk. That wont work will it? My inner chemist starts thinking, well no eggs will make this task sort of difficult. The spazzing cells deep in my brain-where? not sure, my amygdala? quickly suppress logic. They decide : sure this will be fine. Mix a can of pumpkin, a big glug of condensed milk and some pumpkin pie spice in a Pyrex bowl. Obviously use Pyrex, you're studying, then you can just lid that baby up straight from the oven and save mucho time.

Sandra Lee

Did it work? Sure. I wouldn't send this recipe into the pioneer woman or anything. But if your thinking more like Sandy Lee quality eats, there you go. Just look at that tablescape...

Speaking of tablescapes. Check it. TJ flowers still going strong. 2 1/2 weeks!!!! And only $4.

Back to neurons. I'm at neuromuscular disorders. Once I finish I might try to demonstrate my very own neuromuscular disorder by attempting some p90X. Maybe. Or maybe I'll eat some pumpkin mush instead.

At least when this test is over I get some free time (to study for boards, major YIKES) But Saturday is the doomtree blowout. So at least I've got that going for me, which is nice...
this video does in fact have some bad words, so mom, be forewarned :)

Mad impressed that your flowers have lasted so long! They look so vivid. I can never seem to keep flowers living.......

Neuro system is not enjoyable - in my opionion. Yuck! I don't know how you do it!!

That is funny about your pumpkin pie revision - I thought about doing the same thing this week, since I have leftover pumpkin......but am lacking in many of the other ingredients.

Good luck with your upcoming test!
