It's been quite a while since I've had a "regular" post. I've returned to the land of trauma for the months of May and June, which translates to not-so-fun times. Between rounding at 4:30am, watching fellows operate, unpredictable schedules, and the general unpleasantries of the trauma service, I'm not having fun.

Some nights by the time I get home and squeeze in a workout, it's tempting to go straight to bed and skip dinner. I'm never one to miss a meal, though, so instead my dinner ends up looking something like this.

After racing on Saturday morning, I headed straight for the farmer's market to pick up a bounty of fresh produce. I typically shop at the Charlotte Regional market due to the size, variety, and lower prices. Saturday it was completely mobbed and busier than I've ever seen it. I love the fact that Charlotte has such a strong support for its local farmers!
Naturally, the fresh fruits and vegetables made natural ingredients for a dinner salad. I harvested a handful of spinach from my garden for the leafy green base.

Charlotte has seen below average temperatures for several weeks. Fortunately, the weather took a turn for the better this weekend and graced us with sunny skies and temperatures nearing 80 degrees. As you might guess, I spent a majority of Sunday soaking up every last ray of sun from the comforts of my deck.

It must be the warm weather and bounty of seasonal vegetables.
