Me and these dang doctors, what is it? My choice of physicians seem questionable, so before you ask me for advice on a great doctor....well, DON'T ASK ME (shaking my head).

Now, this has absolutely nothing to do with the wonderful doctors that I work for, my choice there seems to be A-OKAY...15+ years, so far so good.

Sooooooo, me and doctors....I needed a couple of days to process this and let it sink in before I actually blogged about it. For those of you who live in Arizona and have seen the news, and for those of you who do not live in Arizona but certainly know me and follow along in my life, my fertility doctor has been, shall we say, BUSTED? I am shocked!!!! My GYN infertility specialist has been arrested and charged with sexually assaulting a female patient. I will tell you this, for the most part I see his nurse practitioner when I go, in fact she has performed ALL female exams on me. I really don't know what to say about this, but obviously I will be seeing a new physician. HE'S OUTTA HERE! I feel confident in that facility where I go however, so I will be seeing a different physician there in the practice. I know you are "innocent until proven guilty," and I am certainly wishing the best for him and his family (this man has a newborn himself), but I certainly can in no way eliminate the FACTS we know so far that have come out!


After I heard this on the news, it made me think of another experience I had with a "doctor gone bad." That time, it was my dentist!! About 3 years ago, I was having my wisdom teeth pulled. Of course they won't pull all of them at one time so return visits become necessary, which in turn you begin to have quite a little rapport going on with the doctor by now. What a jokester, always made me feel comfortable, laugh, pain free, just couldn't have asked for a better personality in your dentist. Three down and awaiting the last appointment to remove what little bit of wisdom I had left in my head, I was watching the 10 oclock news and I see my dentist's face! He had been shot! OMGravy! Little details to go on, too early, it had just happened. I woke up the next morning with it still so fresh on my mind. With NO morning news update, go figure, I said screw it, I am calling the office. I know the girls there, they will tell me what's going on. Well as the story goes, my dentist it would seem had MAJOR MAJOR anger issues and he liked to throw rocks at the lil old neighbor lady (she was in her 80s) over a dispute of about 4 inches of property line. She got tired of his rock throwing, she went in the house and retrieved her dead husband's shotgun, YES SHOTGUN, and shot him in the groin...layman's terms, THE PEE PEE! He lived, albeit ball-less!! So again, DON'T ask me for advice about doctors....NUF SAID!

My sister and I have become the Schwan's queens. If you have never ordered from Schwan's, I highly recommend it!! Not only are they convenient, it is really good. All "angus" beef, which I love. Juicy chicken, too. All kinds of veggies, side dishes, breads, pastas, ice cream, desserts,...you name it, they got it! Now this does not mean you NEVER have to get off your butt and go the grocery store, but it certainly "eases" your grocery shopping somewhat. And again, IT'S GOOD STUFF. My husband totally talked me into this, I was such a skeptic. Ohhhh, and they take debit!! Al (our guy) has his little credit card machine that he carries on his hip, with a printer too! Like I said, CONVENIENT...
For me though, it's ALL about convenience of cooking time! Schwan's is a good example of straight from the freezer to the oven, stove, grill, microwave. I don't cook Schwan's foods every day, but probably at least twice a week I do. I have a deep freezer on my back patio (as does my sister). I LU LU LUV MY DEEP FREEZER! Schwan's delivers every 2 weeks, so needless to say my sister and I stay "stocked."
I have a dawishous recipe for you using some of Schwan's products. It's easy peazy, lemon squeezy AND your family will eat it up!
This makes 3 foot long subs: 1 green pepper (thinly sliced), 1 purple onion (thinly sliced), 1 box of Schwan's package of philly beef, 3 baguette rolls from Schwan's (you can use whatever bread you prefer, but the baguette holds up the best), salt, pepper, oregano flakes, olive oil, mozzarella cheese (or whatever cheese you prefer, provolone and even parmesan are also good).
Saute your sliced green pepper and onion with a little olive oil until they are "wilted." Remove from pan and set aside.... Same pan, add a little more olive oil. Take your frozen philly steak and cook on each side for about 2 minutes....
THIS IS WHERE THE MAGIC BEGINS.....As you can see, the philly steak begins to break or "shred" on its own!!! Takes a total of about 5-6 minutes to cook the meat all the way through...now add back in your sauteed peppers and onions
Preheat your oven to 375. I like to spread a thin layer of butter on the top of my baguette breads, great flavor! Bake your loaves for about 10 minutes if they have been sitting out for awhile, or 15-20 minutes if still completely frozen. They are already pre-cooked!! After bread is done, slice each loaf down the middle and filler' up with your steak. Add cheese on top (again, whateva kind u like) and pop back in the oven for 3-5 minutes, or until cheese is melted. Serving them hot is BEST!
