Title is misleading but it's the best I could figure to link my 2 topics :)
GREEN (eggs) :
Went to a greening the office lecture at work yesterday... very interesting -- for those who don't know I'm in a grass roots group working to promote green awareness at work. It's great - mostly bc the folks I am working with on it ROCK - it's an act of love in that it's 'extra curricular' if you will - read - it's done on my own time and won't be in my review, etc. We're starting to actually get some stuff done - so it makes it all the more awesome. ANYWAY, SO lecture -- apparently we have our first LEED platinum building almost complete in VA! (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Leadership_in_Energy_and_Environmental_Design)
It's a gym. So - you think they use the energy expended on the machines to power the building?
... and Turkey
SO this weekend is BIG -- it will be substitute Thanksgiving! Very excited to get a flier from Trader Joe's -- their big Turkey Day one. They start stocking fresh, free range, veggie feed turkeys TODAY (how convenient) AND they come pre-brined!! If you haven't done a brined turkey, I will attest to it being PHENOMENAL... but taking all the work out of it is even better... and they have pre-done fixins.
Anyone wanna come over for Thanksgiving this weekend? Call me!
Oh and somehow I'm seeing the most scrumptious holiday goodies for great deals EVER - again w the poor timing...
Wine.woot has an amazing 2 torte sampler -- perfect to bring for fam Turkey Day --
AND... also David's, a super sampler pack for cheap --
currently SOLD OUT but promised to be restocked...
I figure I'd pass them on since I won't be partaking this year! I will miss the annual baking of the Xmas cookies -- though Rob may miss it more...
