She’s An Office Wonder

Posted in Humor, Recipes, Society on August 16th, 2015

In truth, it’s hard to keep even a small office running smoothly. It involves a plethora of tasks and duties that are as needful as they are tedious. So we should appreciate our receptionist, our secretary, our administrative assistant, and most assuredly our office manager.

She’s An Office Wonder

She’s really a superheroine in business wear and a wonder in the office. A goddess, if you will, deserving of respect and worship. Who else can all that she does while, at the same time, so beautifying our work environment?

And it’s even better and more beautiful if she’s not one of the ones complaining about how cold it is in the office

The best course of action I can prescribe for you is to go to the doctor’s for a check-up. The right doc can relieve all your ills and stresses. 😛

Herbed Beets With Feta

Posted in Recipes on April 17th, 2011

Roasted beets with herbs and feta cheese make a wonderful vegetable side dish for many meals. Try the recipe sometime when you encounter fresh beets at the market.

Herbed Beets With Feta

Recipe type: Sidedish
Prep time:

Total time: 
Serves: 4 - 6
 
This is a very elegant, and elegantly simple to craft, warm vegetable side dish to serve. The combination of herbs, beets, and feta cheese make a rich and complex palate of flavors.
Ingredients
  • 6 beets (approx 1.5 lb)
  • 1½ tsp chopped fresh thyme
  • 1½ tsp chopped fresh chives
  • 3 Tbsp extra-virgin olive oil
  • 2 oz feta cheese, crumbled
  • Ground black pepper to taste
Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
  2. In a small bowl mix together the thyme, chives, and olive oil, reserve
  3. Peel beets under running water and wrap them individually in foil
  4. Roast beets in oven until tender when pierced with a fork, approx. 1 hour
  5. Remove beets from oven, unwrap, and quarter them
  6. Place beets in serving bowl and drizzle them with herb and oil mixture
  7. Add crumbled feta cheese and pepper
Notes
Beets come in a variety of colors, all of which have very similar flavors. Try mixing different colors for a more interesting presentation. The beets can be roasted the night before and stored (in separate containers by color) if desired and reheated before adding herbed oil and feta cheese.

I particularly like this served with roasted lamb or medallions ofbeef tenderloin, but it pairs wonderfully with a variety of main dishes.
