What is your favorite recipe?
Whatever the huz is making
Scallions – 1 bunch
Emerils Essence – 1 tablespoon
Red pepper and chili powder – I like a lot, but I like it spicy
Evaporated milk – 1 can
Worcestershire sauce – 2 tablespoons
Tabasco – 1 teaspoon
Grated parmesan – ¼ cup and some for topping
In a skillet sauté the scallions in olive oil with the essence and red pepper and chili powder for about 3 minutes. Add the evaporated milk and simmer for about 5 minutes (if you want more sauce like we do then add a bit of milk). Add the Worcestershire sauce and Tabasco and ¼ cup parm. This will thicken the sauce. Salt and pepper to taste.
As you are making the sauce, boil the thin spaghetti so they finish at the same time. Combine the sauce a pasta and serve with parmesan for topping.
Tonight happens to be my one night of the week to cook, and we're having this. I am looking forward to it!
What is your favorite hike in Boulder?
Hands down it’s Royal Arch. I’ve probably done Sanitas more times than any other, it’s about an hour round trip and that is convenient. But Royal Arch has all the elements of a perfect hike. It’s beautiful the entire hike, it’s difficult, the view at the top is a perfect picture of Boulder and Denver, and can complete your cardio and strength training all in one workout. It’s a great 75-90 minute hike (more like 2 hours for lower altitude visitors). So a start at 10am means you can head down to Pearl Street for lunch right after. And trust me, you have earned that beer.
My company says we can wear jeans on Friday. Is it okay to wear a t-shirt and sneakers?
I would say this depends on either your role in the company or the role you want to have in the company. So for most people, no.
However, I wear jeans on Friday, but I always dress it up. For the ladies, it’s best to start with the rule of 3- have 3 main pieces of clothing. For example jeans + shirt + jacket or jeans + sweater + pashmina or jeans + shirt + vest. You can even make a big belt or oversized necklace the third piece. For the guys, you can stick with 2. You want to make sure the jeans are darker wash and your shirt is not something you could wear to the gym. As for sneakers, it truly dresses down an outfit. If they are a trendy Converse or Van type shoe then maybe. But it’s always better to be overdressed than underdressed.
I wondered when I would get to use this, and here goes: Dress for the job you want, not the job you have. Look around you and whatever the senior executives are wearing on casual Friday is what you should wear too...
