It’s the first of June which means the end of my birthday month… oh wait, just kidding, I’m celebrating again this weekend! But after that I swear I’m done with the festivities. Other than birthday celebrations though, here’s what went down this month:

The beginning of this month was stressful because I had to write the Canadian Dietetic Registration Exam to get my permanent RD license. I still don’t know my results yet, so cross your fingers for me!
The rest of my month was smooth sailing. Mid May I attended a cooking class at Sobeys with fellow RD Andrea. It was taught by a local chef who was actually on an episode of Chopped! He made a fantastic Italian themed menu with grilled apricot and burrata salad, gnocchi and morels in cream sauce, lemon and parsley breaded pork loin, and mini ricotta cheesecakes with stawberry rhubarb compote. Pictures are up on my Instagram!
We also started hunting for a new place this month, which has been a headache to say the list. Why can’t we find an apartment with a renovated kitchen, air conditioning, parking for two cars, and no ugly flooring for a price that won’t empty our bank accounts? All I can say is that we’d better find somewhere in the next four weeks, or else we’re going to be taking up residence in a cardboard box in the park!
