I can officially say that I am taking on a new job starting April 4th! The main clinic will be a 10 minute walk from my house and I will be there 3 days a week. The other clinic that I will drive to 2 days a week is about 30 minutes away and near Comiskey Park! (I refuse to call it the other name ) In case you don’t know — I counsel with people on kidney dialysis.
I am so excited to be able to walk home for lunch and visit this guy a few times a week:
And hopefully I will have enough time to continue to blog some wonderful recipes for you guys!!

Nutrition Notes: Like their orange citrus counterparts, lemons are loaded with vitamin C — one of the most important antioxidants. It is vital to the immunity of the body along with fighting off free radicals and reducing inflammation.
Taste Test: This was so good! The combo of lemons, wine and capers is always so delicious. Paired with a salad, this dish was great even without any starch component.
