Hey! How are you guys doing today?
Hiring Our Heroes is a job fair specifically targeted at Veterans and military spouses. It’s an awesome opportunity (in my opinion) for members of the military community to get to speak one on one with employers who are enthusiastic about supporting Service members and their families and being understanding about the military lifestyle (it can be tough for military spouses, for instance, to maintain a career when they’re moving around every few years).
I don’t talk about it too much here on the blog, but in my professional life (aka when I’m not talking about my obsession with hummus or spilling my feelings to the world wide web) I work with the military community, and also have a lot of friends who are Active duty or former Service members. As a result. supporting military families and Veterans in my off time is very important to me.
Apparently Teddy didn’t seem to think so…
Ummm, yeah. He was having a ball… and slightly creeping out everyone by rubbing up against them while they were discussing their resumes and things. He’s pretty friendly.
After work, I met up with my friend Lisa for dinner at the cutest little cheese and wine shop – Cheesetique!
We love this place. It’s over in the Arlington neighborhood of Shirlington, which is too adorable for words and now decked out for Christmas! I already told you guys how much I love me some twinkle lights. Anyways, at dinner we split one of their specialty macaroni and cheese dishes.
Cauliflower and pancetta mac!
Amazing. Plus wine, of course. Apparently it was “wine down Wednesday” at Cheesetique? I’m totally okay with that. I’d appreciate it if every day could be “wine down” day. Thanks.
Side note – I’m experiencing a slight cheese obsession lately. Anyone else? Not sure what my problem is, because little miss lactose intolerant over here isn’t supposed to be frequenting the dairy aisle this much. It’s just sooooo good! I FORGOT how good it is I suppose… I guess that’s like a lot of things in life, right? You can push things (or people) out of your mind, but one reminder of how incredible they are and BAM. Change of story.
Ugh. More mac and cheese please! And bigger pants.
And now I’m going to slowly back away from the cheese………… ;-) Time to get to work. Have a great day!
Any great mac and cheese recipes out? Share in the comments please!
