Week end.

So I have been pinteresting a lot lately. I found some awesome recipes, I've never been much a cook because in my opinion cooking for one is far too much work. Also I don't love leftovers. So I've been a sandwich, ramen, frozen meal, and takeout kind of girl. But finding so many awesome recipes on pinterest has given me a push to try them.

This week I made chicken gyros.  This recipe worked out great because I made the Tzakiti sauce and marinated the chicken the day before. On Tuesday, I just had to cook the chicken, cut up my tomato and onion and then heat up the pitas. It was delicious! Susie and Chris came over to join us for dinner. So no leftovers :)
Then last night me and the roommate made some mexican chicken casserole, and it was pretty good. It was cheesy and awesome. 

 I didn't make these cookies this week, I made them a few months back and brought them to work for all my coworkers. I liked them, but was not a huge fan of the cream cheese filling, which was surprising because I love cream cheese. Next time I think I will leave it out and that will make the recipe a little easier.
Thus far pinterest has yet to let me down. And I would like to make an effort to make dinner at least two nights a week. It's difficult when I don't get off till 6pm and then by the time I work out and get home, i'm hungry and I don't want to spend an hour or two prepping and cooking. So I'm all for easy recipes!

I am working out some new years resolutions. I had a patient explain to me that the first two weeks of the new year are for contemplating your resolutions and being sure that it's something that you can do. Instead of doing them for two weeks and then failing. SO they are made and I have high hopes.

Anyways, a couple weeks ago I had a patient who came in for an initial appointment and while I was doing a head and neck exam noticed a dark area on his neck.
I asked the patient about it and he said it was growing and that he had noticed that. We decided to send him to an oral surgeon for a biopsy of it. The biopsy came back as Malignant Melanoma. The patient went in the following week and had the area removed.  The surgeon told him that they believed they got it all and it hadn't metastasized. He came in this week and told us that he didn't know how to thank us.

That was an awesome outcome and precisely why we do head and neck cancer screenings for our patients.

I'm ready for a vacation, somewhere tropical. With good friends. so good friends need apply. Let's do it.
