Grown-up wardrobe

Today was a really long day. Up early to finish reviewing a few things before the pathology exam and then a grueling 2 hours of an immunology/endocrine/autoimmune exam. I then proceeded home to realize I have very few actual dress clothes that are comfortable that I could see myself spending a full day in.
•have many pairs of jeans that have holes in the knees
• enough American Apparel t-shirts to wear for about 3 weeks, that say something about OSU Medicine
•1 pair of flats
•many pairs of heels that I know I could wear all day, but my feet might hate me by the end of the day
• multiple variations of black dresses
• 4 pairs of dress pants
• I made myself proud today, I bought a dress with color in it. There were many, many more dresses with beautiful pinks, greens, yellows, and blues in them. Skirts, tops, cardigans, and beautiful shoes that I am going to have to budget to buy!

• I am glad I have this girl to help me pick out these fun and professional outfits.

So there’s my rant about my awful closet that needs improvement.

Not to bad, if I do say so myself

I love reading the Pioneer Woman Cooks blog. I think I get a new email with a new recipe in it almost everyday. Well, earlier this week the recipe was for Whiskey Sliders. I decided to attempt these last night. Mike’s description of dinner last night “these are great!” That’s all the approval I need and this recipe will be put into the cookbook for future use.

Little venison patties turned out nicely.

Now had to make the sauce. Onions, butter, Head Country BBQ sauce, and Crown Royal.

Let the burgers simmer for a little while cover in the delicious sauce, topped with jalepenos.

What a great way to use leftover homemade dinner rolls.

They were nicely browned and toasted. Put it all together:

It was quite a good dinner, if I do say so myself.
