What can I say but this has been one heck of a past week! I passed all of my finals and started my clinicals on Monday and what a day it was. My feet are throbbing, my knees are aching and my back is saying “what were you thinking?” But I could not be happier!!! It is great to get out there a work with real patients and see real pathology that I have only seen in text books. Also working with a full time sonographer has already been helpful with building up my confidence and helping me image better.
Okay well a little less about me, you have got to be sick of hearing me go on and on about school because only another student loves it as much as I do, and it is time to get on to the recipe for this week. Well as promised here is the first of the cookie recipes I plan to bring to you in the next few posts… Nutty Maple Date cookies! I tried these cookies many moons ago and I still remember how much I enjoyed them the first time and I still enjoy them just as much today. The frosting is nice and fluffy, the cookies are slightly chewy, due to the dates, and the maple taste in both the cookie and the frosting hits just the right note. Then add in the pecans and as far as I am concerned you have a great Christmas cookie that is worthy of 2013 The Great Food Blogger Cookie Swap!
Well that’s it for this week, I know this is a short post but I have to get up early again for clinical in the AM and I am just exhausted. I promise that I will be back to my normal Monday posting schedule next week so be sure to drop in on Monday and pick up another great cookie recipe that will be perfect to give out to all of your friends and family this holiday season . I hope everyone has a great rest of their week and please drop back by after you make these delish Nutty Maple Date Cookies and let me know how you liked them, I love reading your comments and I really do read them all!
