Medical Monday {November, Volume 2}

Nothing like hosting a group of surgeons at your home for a dinner meeting. That's what I did this past weekend. 

When Doc H first mentioned it, I froze in terror at the thought of having to cook for the group. I love to cook and seem to have a bit of a knack for it, but it was the "what should I cook" that terrified me. How does one please a group when you are completely unaware of their dietary needs? Vegetarian? Vegan? Diabetic? Paleo? Allergies? The thought made me sweat.

Then my Doc H said, "Don't worry, we'll have it catered." And I kid you not, a halo burst into a flaming glaze of glory around his head and I heard fellow angels harmonize behind him. I not sure if I've ever felt such a sense of relief in my life.

So, we catered, we cleaned the house, and I, the kids, and the dog, evacuated the house. We didn't feel the need to be subjected to blood and guts talk all night long.

But, you know what we do want to be subjected to??? 


Are you confused if you qualify for the party?

If you have a pager interrupting your life... you DEFINITELY qualify!
Do you work in healthcare?
Doctor? Nurse? EMT? Chiropractor? Vet? Dentist? Therapist?
Are you the spouse or SO of a healthcare worker/student?
Are you a nursing student? Medical student?
Intern? Resident? Fellow?

  1. Catering for a crowd is definitely the way to go! Glad it went well.
    PS I am the blogger formerly known as Putting the Fun in Dysfunctional ;-)

  2. What a nice treat! Who doesn't love a good catered dinner :) Happy MM!

  3. I can cook pretty decent but I am no Rachel Ray. Catering is the way to go so the party can be savored (not stressful) for all involved. We have hosted a couple parties for the residents and I had my party "catered" by my mom. She is such an amazing cook and it was free :) Too bad she lives 500 miles away or I would have her become my personal chef. Great blog-Im a new follower and fellow Doctors wife!

    1. I don't think you can ever out-do Mom's cooking! My mother is exactly the same way in the kitchen, but lucky for me, she lives only about ten blocks away!
