the most dreaded doctor of them all
Today I have my most dreaded doctor’s appointment.
It happens twice a year and I go kicking and screaming every single time.
I loathe the dentist.
I don’t really know why. I usually have great check ups and never have problems but I just hate having someone dig in my mouth. It gives me the heebie jeebies. Ick. Ick. Ick.
And why is that the hygienist always wants to talk? I mean I know it she is just trying to be friendly but it’s awkward because I can’t answer back with her all her tools in my mouth and I don’t really want to answer because I just want her to do her job and be finished. I don’t want it to take any longer than necessary.
And today I have x-rays.
Another bright spot in the appointment. I like nothing more than having hard film pieces being awkwardly shoved in my mouth while sitting under a 20 pound radiation protective vest.
I am a peach today, no?
Obviously I really hate the dentist.
Oh another note. I do have a recipe for you. For years I would simply eat my vegetables plain because I didn’t really know what to do with them. I still am usually pretty simple; you know olive oil, fresh lemon, salt and pepper. But every so often I go all out.
Baked Asparagus with Balsamic Butter Sauce
1 bunch of asparagus, trimmed
salt and pepper; to taste
2 T. butter
1 T. soy sauce
1 tsp. balsamic vinegar
Preheat the oven to 400 degrees and arrange the asparagus on a cookie sheet lightly sprayed with nonstick spray. Sprinkle with salt and pepper. Bake for 12 minutes, or until tender.
Melt the butter in a small saucepan over medium heat. Remove from heat and add soy sauce and balsamic vinegar. Pour over asparagus, tossing to coat, and serve immediately.
Do you like the dentist?
What about your vegetables…do you eat them plain or dressed up?
