Menu Plan - April 20

What an exciting week.... on Friday, I became Dr. SnoWhite as I successfully defended my dissertation!  My wonderful lab mates, collaborators, and Frog Prince had a party for me afterward complete with champaign. 

It feels wonderful to have that portion of my degree complete :)  In about two weeks our families are coming for graduation and we're looking forward to celebrating with them.

To reduce my stress last week, I stole some time in the kitchen cooking up....

Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Muffins
