Day Off?

Turned out my day was busier than I expected. But I was pumped to be doing my job as a medical nutrition therapist and as the OIC (officer in charge) of Nutritional Medicine. I guess being in my PT (personal training) gear instead of the uniform counted as my "day off".

I did get to visit the contractor's dining facility with our Iraqi physicians and taste some different cuisine. Most of the meats are cooked in liquids. Right now they have cooks & contractors from many different countries. There was Turkish, Philapino and Indian foods offered. Our docs pointed me to these items as being prepared in a manner more consistent with Iraqi cooking. Stewed meats, vegetables and rice.

I didn't get a chance to photograph the best bread I have ever tasted. I'm going back another few times so I'll include it next visit.
