Vacation!

Did you know I am now doing ONLY psychiatry...foreva?! The choirs of angels are singing, or Glee is on tonight, one of the two. I finished up my neurology rotation with a 4 days of vacation. Glorious vacation.


Finished neuro, chucked that reflex hammer into my apt,  and drove to WI. Ate some sushi to celebrate being done. Unpictured, but fabulous.  I also made some barbecued chicken and Brussels sprouts (yeah, there is an unexpected S at the end of that, weird) Ugly, but tasty. Stay tuned, things get prettier.



Recipe is Giadia's, adapted by moi. I love her and her gigantic skull. Is it just me, or is she the perfect celebrity bobble head? Anyways, simmered chicken breasts in the BBQ sauce while I showered and beautified. I also roasted some Brusselsssss sprouts with balsamic and olive oil till tender...25 min? Flip em halfway. It would make more sense if the sprouts belonged to Brussels, Brussels' Sprouts? They don't, they are Roman Whatev.


Off to Chi-town to continue my celebration. My life is sweet.







 

Beans and sushi. As much sushi as my heart desires :) Yum.



Finished up the vacation with with a salad. Trying to be healthy. I should probably give up almonds for lent. Almonds and Nutella. You heard it here folks.  Anyways, this is a semi Ni├žoise salad. Sandra Lee quality authenticity, can you deal? Red leaf lettuce base, dressed with EVOO, red wine and balsamic vin, Dijon, sugar, S&P. Hard boiled eggs, fresh green beans, artichokes, roasted red pepper, Havarti, olives, roasted red potatoes, and capers. Aren't you impressed with my sweet plating. Yeah, I thought so. Check ya later, better focus on Glee.

I've been to Chicago many times and have yet to see the bean! Pathetic, right? Maybe on my next trip!

Yum. All the food looks delish. Esp the Nicoise salad, which is a fabe thing of mine. I especially like it with purple potatoes because they are so pretty and add another color to the plate. Yummers.

Your plating is fantastic! Food looks so good! Chicago is a great place to explore and it looks like there is no snow there? Wow!
