Donut Salad with A Side of Onions

Happy Friday all! I’m getting sort of close to the end of my time in Miami, which is making me sad for all the things I haven’t had a chance to do yet…all the food I haven’t eaten, all the hashes I haven’t been on, all the beaches I haven’t seen. Which would be all of the beaches, because I’ve been to no beaches. I know. It’s embarrassing. Let’s move on. IT’S NATIONAL DONUT DAY!

I hope you’re celebrating with an indulgent confection just waiting to cocoon you in a sweet, sweet blanket of love. Yes, that is how I think about all my donuts…don’t you?

In my usual Continue reading

Red Wine and Mushroom Chicken

I’ve got a recipe for you today!

I don’t know why but the last two weeks have really dragged me down. I’ve been struggling to stay atop of my overly ambitious schedule (I believe I’ve mentioned it before, see my MO for more details), and got behind one day about two weeks ago and just haven’t been able to catch up. I’m thinking maybe – maybe – on this Friday I’ll catch up. It would be amazing. But actually also this week I did do my first rough draft of my personal statement! 🎉🎉🎉 Yes, this is Big News.

Healthy Oatmeal Breakfast Cookies

Healthy cookies! Kind of an oxymoron, right? WRONG! Ha, gotcha.

I’ve been on the lookout for a healthy breakfast cookie for ages (I hate mornings, more-or-less, and I’m always hungry and looking for something quick to eat), and haven’t had time to experiment since my initial, disastrous foray into the breakfast cookie world (unclear what went wrong but I think it was the buckwheat flour – we have since parted ways. I was trying to limit the amount of oats I used, since I usually have oatmeal for breakfast anyways, but then came to the realization that I probably don’t eat enough oatmeal to say no to an oaty breakfast cookie. I’m not tryna cut off my nose to spite my face!). Continue reading

A Letter of Truths

Bet you thought you wouldn’t hear from me this week…! Ha!

Right so, so many things on my mind. Let me go in geological order:

I meal prepped! Duh. I always meal prep. This week I did fish en papillote, which is fish in little parchment packets, with olive tapenade and chard. I did some thinly sliced potatoes on the side, because carbs. Continue reading

Meal prep boss

Hello! Fancy meeting you here!

I received a lot of really unexpected – but very much welcomed – support of my post last week. Whether it was friends liking my post (even though I know not all of them read it, I still appreciate it!), to encouragement of maintaining my blog my way, to messages from friends close by and far away agreeing or commenting or challenging me, it’s so nice to have the support/inspiration/confidence and really motivation. Even though I really truly am going to blog for myself, it just makes us human that we seek and glow from the attention and caring from our peers. So, consider me human ☺️.

This week I started a new rotation and the hours are way more relaxed than my last Continue reading
