Happy summer everyone! It is officially hot and humid here in Montreal and the festivals are in full swing.and I go back to work. My first day as a doctor was an interesting one. I started off by calling myself a medical student, introducing myself by my first name, and becoming flabbergasted when handed a patients chart to deal with before having orientation to my clinic. The second day was completely different I was officially Dr. Moscovitz with my long white coat and all. WARNING: when urinating, make sure it doesnt fall in the toilet (I was a near miss). The third day I was home sick with fever.

Goshdarnit I ONLY have 6 sick days doesnt my body know to wait till its at least September before I want a day off??? Not day 3!!! Fine Ill admit the Breaking Bad marathon was pretty awesome, but the chills and sore throat was no fun. Its a good thing then that I decided to start making homemade popsicles so that I could use real fruit instead of artificial nonsense. This recipe is super easy it uses peaches, ginger, water and sugar. I cut the sugar down from the original recipe, but they were still super sweet. When I make them again, I may try no added sugar at all (or maybe something like 2 Tbsp).
