Between yesterday and today I spent 15 hours in class. I was able to take the ENPC, which is the Emergency Nursing Pediatric Course. This is a class that is usually for emergency room nurses on how to deal with their pediatric patients, but there were four of us that were pediatric nurses learning how to deal with the emergencies that can arise. I was a little nervous about the class because while much of the information is stuff that I use on a daily basis (ie: what are normal baselines for kids versus adults) the emergency information is fortunately not stuff I use reguarly. There was a big written test at the end, along with a couple of skills stations. I'm happy to report that I passed!
As a little reward for myself, I decided to stop by The Pearl, that great little ice cream/confectionary I found in downtown La Crosse. I had decided I only needed to get one treat, so I spent some time drooling over the case of goodies and ended up with this:
The Chocolate Mousse Truffle. Mmmm..... It was pure bliss! I love anything with chocolate, especially when it includes either mint or peanut butter, but just pure chocolate, wow! It was great to really savor this one little piece of bliss!
A while ago I stumbled upon a food blog. It was actually one of the blogs on the front page of Blogger and I accidently clicked on it. It was a fun surprise! The guy happens to be from Minneapolis and posts pictures and recipes of things he cooks or bakes. It turns out he's just a guy who decided that he wanted to eat better so he started learning how to cook. I haven't tried any of his recipes yet, but from what I can see, I'd say he's been successful! If you're looking for something to make for dinner tonight, check out www.desertculinary.blogspot.com and look through the recipes to see what you can find! Good luck recipe-hunting!
By the way, can anyone tell me how to put a link right in my message, so readers can click on that link and be brought directly to another website? [Thanks, Andy!!]
