Seven Days!

My grand tour of Europe starts in 7 days. What? I have been waiting for this for months and can't believe that the countdown is below the double digit mark. Damn!

Also, I am missing some of my BFFs: A and E already took off for Europe, B is at a wedding in Cape Cod, and J is about to leave for Africa (and I still owe you that glass of wine and housewarming gift!). Oh sadness, where does the time go?

Today also marks the two month mark for the start of med school. Watch out kids, only 60 days until my doctor-ness aka awesomeness is set loose! (Actually, I am terrified to start.)

A Bet

So about a year ago when I was going through the hell that is known as "med school applications", I made a bet with my parents. If a med school accepted me they had to take me out to dinner to the bestest place ever...Log Haven. Well I was accepted to two med schools so they had to shell out some extra dough..hehe! And since I am obsessed with food I of course have to give a description: I started out with a yummy sweet wine-rose cocktail, then we had grilled calamari (totally out of this world), and quinoa encrusted crab cakes. Britta and I shared a half bottle of champagne for the appetizer/salad course. My salad was heirloom lettuce, egg, truffle vinaigrette, and mushroom. We ordered my favorite wine, a Gruner, for our entrees. I had a bison ribeye with parmesan pomme fritte. Britta had grilled scallops atop creamy risotto with a carrot coulis. For dessert, coffee, creme brulee, and a triple chocolate cake thing that was blow-you-away fantastic.
Thanks so much to the folks for holding up their end of the bargain (and for the med schools accepting me so that I had another chance to eat at Log Haven!).
