Baking Date: October 8, 2012
I keep in touch with a number of former professional colleagues, but none have been more helpful than my pals Jennifer and Reid. We worked together for a number of years at the same organization, until I left in 2011. They were my biggest cheerleaders and support system as I searched for a new job. And when I was laid off this year, they again provided encouragement, suggestions and career advice. I really appreciate how wonderful they’ve been to me.
We try and get together every other month for an “alphabet” lunch. We find a restaurant that starts with whatever letter we are are up to in the alphabet and get together for a fun nosh fest.
We were up to “T” and had lunch at Tosca on Tuesday. The meal was FABULOUS – all of us enjoyed our lunch choice. Two thumbs up!
Since it was Reid’s birthday the previous week, I surprised him with a batch of Margarita cupcakes. We took them back to the office, so I could say hi to former colleagues also. Everyone loved the cupcakes — a recipe with tequila and Grand Marnier in it has to be good!
The alcohol in this does not burn off — just something to keep in mind. These are definitely adult cupcakes.
