To say that this week is a big week for me would be an understatement. This week is a HUGE week. Maybe the biggest week of my life. No joke. You see, I’m graduating on Saturday. Not from high school…that was awhile ago. Not from college, either. Been there, done that. I’m graduating from graduate school. Finally, finally, finally I will be done with my education and be able to enter the working world.
Wanna know why else next week is a big week? Marc is graduating too! After Saturday, I’ll have to call him as Dr. Ellingson. Just kidding. I’m still calling him Marc. But he WILL officially be an M.D. I think I can speak for the both of us when I say there were many times that it felt like this time of our life would never come. We spent countless days and nights studying at the library and coffee shops(that’s actually where we met!) and it’s strange to know that those days are over. Now that graduation is almost here and we will soon have our own patients to be accountable for, it’s
terrifying very surreal. Celebration is definitely in order!
Since it’s graduation season, that means it’s also about time for summer BBQs, patio-chilling, and picnics! These would be perfect occasions for this easy and delicious appetizer. I’m always skeptical about dishes that seem so simple, but this one definitely did not disappoint. The dip is made of warm and fluffy goat cheese, which is topped with caramelized onions and dried figs. So simple. So delicious.
