Popping in briefly because it’s the the.boy’s birthday today (his 30th!!!) so I don’t want to divert too much attention from him just to say HAPPY WEEKEND and to let you guys know the results of The Match yesterday!

I am super excited to tell you that I’ll be headed to NYU for my Internal Medicine residency!! I matched into their research track, which means I’m also guaranteed a fellowship position in their endocrinology department. This is extra awesome because it means (a) I won’t have to apply for fellowship in 3 years, but also (b) that we’ll definitely get to stay in the same place for the next 6-7 years. Given that we have moved 3 times in the past 4 years, this is definitely welcome news.

Now, onto the food! This week’s meal plan has a great mix of light spring-fresh options along with some comfort food! There are Thai-spiced quinoa “meat”balls, taco-infused chickpea lettuce wraps, one-pot tortellini primavera soup, super green vegetable curry bowls, and a hearty mushroom tofu chili. Happy eating!

    Congratulations, Joanne! I’m so happy for you! You really are amazing with all you accomplish! I know this for sure, because my daughter, who coordinates clinical trials at MSK and has a very strong research background, is having a heck of a time just getting into med school! She’s gearing up to try again for next year.

  2. Monica says:
