Ok, it’s finally time to tell you what’s going on. After alittle less than 1 month of searching in Denver, I am EMPLOYED. Yeaaaas.
No more sitting on the couch searching the internet for goofy pictures of justin bieber. I mean cats..
Let me tell you a little bit about how it went. 2 weeks ago I had 2 back to back interviews for great jobs, very similar positions, and both jobs I knew were in the direction of where I wanted to take my career. (You know, that thing I do all day when I’m not blogging?)
So, at the end of this last week, I was in a postion with 2 offers needing to choose, and I gotta tell you, my heart was heavy. It is so hard to turn someone down that sees something in you. I was having to decide between an emotional connection with someone and the right career move for me.
After much discussion, a very detailed venn diagram, and a few margaritas, I finally made my choice. I am now the Director of Development for Doctors Care, a clinic that provides accessible care for the underserved. I’ll be doing very similar work to what I was doing at Children’s, just with A LOT more responsibility.
And it feels good.
And I start this afternoon. So that means posts are going to be a little more regular in time now, I don’t know if that means morning or night yet.
AND ONTO OTHER NEWS. I have a cracker for you. Oh Martha, do I have a cracker for you.
It’s a gouda thyme.
BHAHAHAHA. I know. I am sorry, I couldn’t help it. But seriously, it’s a gouda thyme ice box cracker, do you know how easy ice box crackers are?
I just also want to mention how funny it is that I am blogging about a cracker the day I announce my new job. That to me, seem hysterical.
no one else? oh, okay.
Gouda Thyme Ice Box Crackers
1 cup all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon coarse salt
1/8 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
1 1/2 tablespoons chopped fresh thyme, plus extra sprigs for garnish
3 tablespoons chilled unsalted butter, cut into small pieces
1 cup finely grated Gouda cheese
1/4 cup plus 1 tablespoon milk
1 large egg white, lightly beaten
Combine flour, salt, pepper, and thyme in the bowl of a food processor; pulse to combine.
Add butter; pulse until mixture resembles coarse meal. Add cheese; pulse until combined. With machine running, add the milk; process until dough comes together and is well combined.
Bake crackers until they are golden brown and firm in the center, 25 to 35 minutes
I am telling you these are the easiest things in the world to make. Go do it now, . What are you waiting for? Go!
