Tonight is my work’s annual meeting. It can be a bit of a yawnfest if you break it down into what HAS to happen: Board of Directors’ presentation, potential bylaw votes, etc. I’ve been in charge of organizing it for the last two years. (I guess I should probably add event coordinator to my resume.) My opinion is that we have to have the meeting, so let’s make it fun. This year’s theme is Oktoberfest, in honor of that glorious tradition’s 200th anniversary. I don’t find event planning too difficult, but the day of can be pretty stressful. This morning, I got in the car and blasted the Future Bible Heroes and got my blood pumping and a smile on my face for my 14 hour day.
The tomato season is leaving us, and we ended up getting a pretty glorious amount for a year of wonky weather. My CSA gave me the best thing to do with extras: cut them in half, lay them out on a casserole dish, drizzle with extra virgin olive oil, balsamic vinegar, salt, and pepper and cook in a 350 degree oven until the liquid completely cooks off. Then you just put the goopy stuff in the freezer and use it for pasta sauces during the cold days of January. Good stuff!
A blog about our house, writing, art, or whatever else tickles my fancy.
