Yesterday morning I munched on some Bear Naked granola for breakfast, but it didn’t fill me up for too long and soon enough I was hungry for lunch. Luckily, I was still hanging out at Chef Eric's casa and he whipped up this delicious creation that he called “garlic habanero steak pasta.”


I’m really not sure how he does it, but this guy has a gift for throwing a bunch of random seasonings and sauces into a pan and turning them into an incredibly flavorful and tasty meal. He’s made some fabulous stir-fries and some of the best spaghetti I’ve ever had, but this was probably one of my favorite meals that he’s made.


I enjoyed my portion with a simple salad (spring mix) with raspberry vinaigrette.


After lunch I took a little nap before hitting the road to head back home to Traverse City. I had lots of laundry to do and needed to get organized for my first rotation that I start today (!!).

Dinner was delicious and was created by another talented chef: my mommy Smile


Chicken with an orange honey glaze, brown rice (with a hint of soy sauce)


And green beans with slivered almonds.

Mmm…more good cooking that I didn’t have to do! Love it Open-mouthed smile


Well, right now I’m munching on a bowl of my favorite chocolately overnight protein oats with frozen banana:


And I’m about to walk out the door for Day 1 of my internal medicine rotation. This is supposedly the hardest one, so while I’m not exactly looking forward to that part, I’ll be glad to get it out of the way first!



See ya later Smile


Question: Are you good at just throwing random ingredients together in the kitchen to make a good meal? Or do you always need recipes?

I’m trying to get better at “free style” cooking, but I’m definitely a recipe type of girl!
