Do you ever have one of those moments where you wake up at 5 in the morning to go to the bathroom and some really enlightened idea pops into your head (or, well, you think it's enlightened at the time) and you tell yourself you're going to remember it, and then you go back to bed and wake up only to find that it's gone forever? I totally experienced that last night. I woke up and thought of some really great thing to write about and now, nothing, zilch, zippo. Maybe I'll remember it later, if I do I'll get back to you.
Anyways, this week was the first week of classes for me and I've been trying to ease myself into a routine. I have class every day of the week except for Fridays (yay!!) starting at 11. I really like being able to sleep in until 9 and it's something that I should appreciate now before medical school starts and I have to get up early again. My roommate and I made this pact that we are going to try to clean our room every Saturday this semester. We are both pretty messy people, so this will be tough. It's kind of like a New Semester's Resolution...we'll stick to it for about a month and then it will slowly start to dwindle into a once in a lifetime occurrence. My mom is coming to visit tomorrow, along with my sister and aunt, and so I really need to whip myself into shape. I love it when she comes up (which is really rare) but at the same time it comes with a lot of stress. I guess I should go try to find that vacuum...but before I do, I would like to share a yummy sandwich that I made this week:
Grilled Tomato, Pesto, and Goat Cheese Sandwich
2 slices whole wheat bread
1 small tomato
1 tbsp homemade pesto (the pesto I made earlier this week for my pizza)
1 oz herb goat cheese
Layer the pesto, goat cheese, and tomato between the bread slices. Grill on a George Foreman or panini press or broil until cheese is slightly melted and bread is browned.
