Rainy day means productivity in my dictionary

Hello from rainy Indianapolis. Besides being on call, I planned our menu for Christmas week.

Past week:
Sunday: Union Jack pizza. my usual basil and sundried tomatoes // italian sausage and basil deep dish pizza for the boys
Monday: impromptu sushi dinner
Tuesday: chicken adobo (hubs' favorite Filipino dish)
Wednesday:beef stew in the slow cooker
Thursday: baked tilapia with tomatoes and zucchini
Friday: dinner date at Mama Carolla's. I ordered my usual pasta bolognese with angel hair pasta // hubs got his chicken fettucine alfredo. we are both creatures of habit. It's hard to change our ways.
Saturday: meatloaf; roasted garlic tomatoes, bell peppers and zucchini (aka throw whatever I have in my fridge)

Christmas week:
Sunday: chicken alfredo and rice casserole
Monday: left overs
Tuesday: Christmas Eve ~~ crock pot pork chops and apples; baked sweet potato fries (these are addicting!)
Wednesday: Christmas Day ~~ crunchy chicken tenders, shrimp tortellini, baked asparagus. my mom's share: everybody's favorite Ham. yum.
Thursday: bang bang shrimp (aka orange peel shrimp)
Friday: left overs
Saturday: pepper steak stir fry from this awesome cookbook

I say this weekend is a productive one. The children's gifts are all wrapped. We went for a huge Costco run {usuals: milk, fruit, meat for my freezer meals in preparation for a busy inpatient hospital month, diapers, veges}.

This is my last weekend call as a resident physician...... Another milestone.
{counting the days}

Here's my handsome boy who's seen me work as a resident his whole life. It's about to change buddy!









Let's keep in touch:
