Notes to future self:
- You do not have a 3 qt. bundt pan. It’s more like 2.5 qt.
- Clean the oven.
- It would be neat do do something like this with it:
I made and froze these last week for the mornings The Husband is running late. He likes them too much though and just took them for lunch so we’re already out despite waking up on time. I used biscuits instead of English Muffins and turkey bacon instead of regular. Pepper Jack is The Husband’s cheese of choice, but I prefer Cheddar.
This story made me laugh. Maybe The Husband should grow a beard after all. Well, not during the Air Force rotations at least. Also, maybe I’ll take advantage of 3 lbs./$5 strawberries at Food Lion after the final(!) test.
You really never do know what is about to come out of someone’s mouth.
I was on a consult month and had just gotten a new patient. Now, I will admit that the feisty patients are some of my favorites- they really break up the day and are by far the most memorable.
This lady was FEISTY. I walked in and was immediately informed that she was doing things her way (as she always had, thank you very much). She also had an opinion on pretty much everyone.
Including, when we came back to formally round, my medical student.
At this point in time, I had a medical student with a very full beard. Which he liked to stroke as a nervous habit when he wasn’t talking.
That was what my patient picked up on immediately.
Attending: So, my dear, we would recommend…
Patient (interrupting): Oh, you a…

Or strata, because that sounds healthier. Also, it’s made with homemade bread. I’m very domestic.
The Husband is out having a beer with some friends after today’s “rough” Histology test,* so The Toddler and I are going with a lazy dinner. Yum!
* Even Lu. got one wrong! Horrors!
We had a nice weekend. Here are some highlights.
Made some chocolate chip cookies for the college freshmen in the family and mailed those off.
The Husband signed me up as his “Plus One” at the MCV gym, so now I can continue my quest to do my second lifetime pull-up. (The first and only was in 6th grade for the Presidential Fitness Test.)
Checked out the Farmers Market in Forest Hill Park on Saturday. It was a bit overwhelming with the crowds, but we picked up some fresh corn-on-the-cob and some sausage. Several places were advertising fall farm shares, so I’ll look at the details next week and perhaps get one. That way I’m less likely to be paralyzed by all the choices and maybe I’ll branch out a bit with vegetables.
We took those sausages and had some school friends over for dinner. It was the best sausage and peppers I’ve had. Normally I hate peppers, but this recipe made them so sweet. Maybe it was the wine?
Sunday, The Husband went to the library to study for his second test and afterwards we met up with his classmate T and T’s wife and 16-month-old at the park. We intended to go to Belle Isle, but driving in we saw a festival at Brown’s Island so we went there instead. The Baby enjoyed crawling around and throwing gravel. The Husband got a free burger because the food tent was packing up. I spoke to a human being that I don’t live with IN PERSON. It was a good time.
And then at 8:05 p.m., The Baby took 3 steps in a row. He is now known as The Toddler.
