Getting to know the hospital today was exciting. It’s one of North Carolina’s biggest and everyone who I tell that I’m going to be working there raises their eyebrows and says “Wow, you are going to learn SO MUCH.” I’m not exactly sure what they mean, but I think I’m going to see a wide variety of patients.
In fact, as I was finishing my lunch today I heard a really loud noise and there was a helicopter taking off just above me from the rooftop. I hope whoever was in it will be OK 🙁
But before clinical starts, I’ve got more fun in corporate wellness!
I ate my yogurt for a snack around 4PM but never got to that Larabar. I’m going to have it tomorrow!!
I came home and found Matt knee-deep in gnocchi!!!
Those would be Cinnamony Sweet Potato Whole Wheat Gnocchi!!
Sassy Sweets (the NC Sweet Potato Blog) is doing their Bloggers Recipe Challenge again this year. Remember last year I entered my Nutty Vanilla Sweet Potato and Kale Soup and was one of the $100 winners? They are doing it again and this is my entry! Not exactly the “quickest” recipe, but certainly delicious and creative! Actually, I gotta give most of the props to Matt – he invented and executed it! I’m just the talent 😉
For all the details of the recipe: Sweet Potato Gnocchi.
My afternoon snack was the sweet, sweet SKIN!
And now for the main event –
The kale was maple scented and lightly steamed.
I have no idea what the nutritional information on these gnocchi are, but I bet they are more calorie-dense than one might think. I’d recommend serving them with a fresh veggie 🙂
Blindly picked!! I’m not sure how many Twitter entries there were, but I got 290 emails! (Thanks to those of you who wrote personal emails – wish I had time to read them all!)
Winners are @CEgoodner and Natalie!! Guys, please email me to Katheats at Gmail dot com with your mailing address!
