  • I love pizza, I love pizza, I love pizza! Growing up we had homemade pizzas on Saturday right before Dance Fever, Solid Gold, and the Love Boat. I should make some of my own. What an inspiring thread!

  • My one suggestion for keeping the knives sharp is to hand wash them. Don't put them in the dishwasher. 
  • I thought the interview went well. If I get a follow-up interview it will be in October.
  • Interview tomorrow. Boy, do I want this one. I took videos of me answering different questions. After reviewing it I decided to add a little more inflection in my answers so that I don't sound like a machine. I'm looking forward to this interview! 
  • I tried a new recipe, eggplant and red pepper soup. After I cooked the veggies and veggie stock (new recipe, too) I put the veggies in a food processor, and ended up with a light, sweet, smooth-ish soup. I'm pretty happy with it.
