100th Post - A Musing

This post number 100. Well give or take a little but that is a long explanation. It is #100 posted on the site (minus about 3 remover for various reasons, I think). When I started this, I was planning about 20 recipes that I wanted to document better and then I though I would do 1-2 post per week so number 100 should be about Christmas if at all.

So I have earned a little musing about what I have learned and what I plan.

First, what I have learned/believe:
  • There is excellent cooks out there to learn from. And they give it to you for free. See my blog list for some of  them.
  • When I look for a recipe, I first look at CI (Cooks Illustrated... I love the scientific approach) and then I Google and add blog to the end of my search phrase for the best material.
  • My photography has gotten better but I'm using editing programs to quickly improve the results. I now know how to use a histogram.
  • If you're close to my age, you will remember the term "Military-Industrial Complex" (a very 1960's phrase) referring to the relationship between the Military and the industries they deal with. The food industry is no better.
  • The health food/vitamin industry is even worse then the food industry in their claims and lack of proof. Avoid them like raw chicken. Don't get me started about drug companies.
  • You eat a lot better when you plan ahead.
  • Spell check is wonderful
What's ahead? Don't know for sure.

I'm working on a personal diet plan to help get rid of the 10 pounds I have gained since starting this blog. I want to blame my "bread phase" and I'm sure it was a lot of it but the Julia Child's french bread was so totally worth it. I still believe simple carbs stimulate appetites and my body seems to think white flour is sugar. I will be posting something soon on a diet I think I can follow and stay on.

The frequency of posts will slow some time soon. I have new medical students starting soon and they take a lot of time. We are implementing EMR (electronic medical records) and that will take a lot of time and energy.

Enough musing... on to the next post.

**groans for new med students**

3rd years should NOT be in the PICU. I don't know what to say to them when they ask me outpatient pediatrics questions. Ummm... I'm an intensivist? I'll ask my dad for you though...

It's the resource CD, the 14 lectures, and always having a shadow for 6 months. But some of my 4th yrs. are doing PICU.
