My dear, it's been a long time since I have posted here. My apologies to my loyal reader, as I just haven't been inspired. That's not to say that I haven't been busy. I started back on my obstetrics rotation, which means that I have been infinitely busy. Hence, I am enjoying my first day off in two weeks by doing none other than cleaning my apartment. It was so messy that it was making me stressed out just looking at it. Now, with it spic and span (sort of), I feel much much better.
Also, I'm planning my trip to Morocco. I'm usually a much better trip planner and not so last-minute, but here I am less than two weeks away from my trip and I have to still plan the itinerary, book hotels, book trains, figure out what to see, when. Ah! Who knew travel could be so stressful?
Alas, I have also been cooking. My pasta maker finally came and I put it to good use the other night making herbed pasta (use a simple pasta dough recipe and run it through the pasta machine several times on the lowest setting, then out to around "7" and then place various herbs (I used thyme and mint) on the pasta and fold it over once. Run it through the machine again several times until it's as thin as you desire).
Here is my apartment after my pasta making frenzy:
And it was all worth it for these gals:
