ARF's to Refresh!

MAN! I'm tired. I went to the hospital just before 6 this morning and didn't leave until 6 tonight. Tomorrow will be another long day of surgery and then on Wednesday night I have call (4:30 until 7 am on Thursday) with a morning of clinic to follow. I think I'm going to be a tired puppy and ready for our family reunion next weekend...I'll sleep, thank you! It's a good thing I made a yummy salad this weekend, though most of it is gone! I had some portabello mushrooms and decided that they would be good in a panzanella type salad. Sooooo...I created my own. It's not perfect and I WILL be doing it again. Because of the tomatoes, onions, and portabellos, this is a super healthy salad, so it's my entry for Sweetnick's ARF Tuesday. Visit her site to check out the other great recipes. BTW, sorry for the poor quality of the pictures...this is what my eyes felt like! :-) Portabello Cornbread Panzanella
3 tomatoes, chopped
1/4 cup (or a little more) green onions
1 cup cubed cornbread (I used a quarter of the round "loaf")
2-3 grilled portabello mushrooms
1 teaspoon olive oil
3 teaspoons balsamic vinegar
Put tomatoes, onions, portabellos, oil, and vinegar in a bowl and mix. Cover and let stand for a couple of hours. Stir in cornbread. Serve immediately or (even better) refrigerate overnight and serve. I like this better after it has set for a little bit. I must admit, I didn't really measure, so these may not be completely accurate but are just estimates! Enjoy!

That looks delicious! Good luck with your schedule and get as much rest as you can.

Yum! That sounds great! I hope it doesn't take you too long to adjust to the long days. ((hugs))

Yum! It looks really good to me!
Hope you get some rest soon....tell me if you start working in the NICU so I can tell you my BIL's name!

Alisha - Thanks! I really haven't felt tired from lack of sleep. I just have to get my schedule rearranged.

Erika - Thanks! I enjoyed it. The days aren't bad...except on my feet! I actually had call last night so I was at the hospital from 7 on Wed until 1:30 Thursday. Kind of interesting.

Gail - I hope you try it. I don't know if we actually go through NICU unless I do during peds surgery, which is the next two weeks.
