and all that jazz

June 19, 2006

goings on:

we threw a hawaiian (ok, maybe just ‘tropical’ is more accurate) dinner.
our menu:

* sparkling tropical sangria (champagne, white wine, mango nectar, mangoes, limes, and starfruit)
* macadamia nut flower honey wine from volcano, HI
* an australian pink cabernet, which was lovely (credit: d. and a.)

* pinepple/shrimp delicacies
* coconut crepes with lime and mint chicken (or some permutation of those things — credit: s. and j.)

* arugula salad with mango, pineapple, jicama, avocado, and macadamia nuts, with macadamia nut oil vinaigrette (credit: emeril, of all people)

* grilled cuban pork (credit: cooks illustrated)
* seafood luau plate (credit: duke’s waikiki)

* tropical fruit salad with assorted sorbets (credit: r. and haagen daz)

i know, we should open a restaurant, right? someday.

i bought fiona apple tickets.
i have always wanted to see her in concert and now i will. unless i am on call. actually, who are we kidding? i’ll make sure i’m not, or i’ll switch it or whatever. i’m a 4th year, no one will die if i am not there on any given night. well, someone could die, i guess, but it wouldn’t have anything to do with my absence.

i am really almost sort of kind of pretty definitely sure that i am going to go into psychiatry.
at least, i am today. i loved dr. iZL’s description of the reactions people tend to have when you tell them that. heh.

    Ooh, the dinner sounds awesome! We're trying to finalize our vacation days–it looks like we might be stopping in Durham on the way down instead of the way back. That would put us in your area Friday night the 30th to Saturday morning July 1. I don't know when you have to start med school again, but if you are free, I'd love to meet up!
